Our Story

Hi I’m Esteban, I work as a guide more than 15 years in different travel agencies, my passion as a guide came when I started to organize trips between school friends, to explore Cusco and the surrounding areas where I found many interesting things that I want to share with you as my traditions, and customs of my ancestors ,

 After high school I pursued this passion, learned English and went to school guides (ISTP KHIPU) for three years to get permission  as an official tour guide to leading hundreds of groups to Machu Picchu and into the Andes Mountains. Safety is always the highest priority, so I have extensive training in CPR and other skills needed for hiking adventures. all this time working as guide have taught me to see the traveler’s perspective. Along the way, I have learned how to deliver a first-class service to passionate travelers.

I contacted with Fatima Yañac who is knowledgeable in administration and accounting so the idea emerged of  MAMACOCA EXPEDITIONS.

I brindare by my side all my knowledge of tourism and she is responsible for the administrative and accounting and together we can offer and provide a first class service.

Now, we are fortunate to own and manage of mamacoca expeditions means “Mather coca leaf” this sacred leaves are one of the most important plants used in the Andes of Peru. Excavations of ancient burial sites have shown that coca leaves were used ceremonially thousands of years ago. They were important to the Inkas and nowadays the communities continue to use the coca leaves in their daily lives as well as in ceremonies and rituals. love to share my knowledge of local customs, history and culture with travelers from around the world. I am proud of my country and my heritage, and I will make sure that you have an unforgettable trip to Peru.
