2007 – 2013: CREATION OF OUR FIRST TRAVEL AGENCY
Based on our experiences, we decided to create a new travel and tourism agency, in which we will develop trips based on authentic encounters and human experiences in sometimes unusual places. It would become our brand image. From the beginning we care about responsible and sustainable tourism, protecting the environment.
2015 – 2018: GROWTH AND CONNECTION OF NEW TOURIST DESTINATIONS
These are the years in which we travel to new regions and to other Latin American countries such as Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, Argentina, always with the same mission of developing responsible tourism trips rich in encounters. This is how many of us have created a kind of cooperative to offer unusual tours, for clients and agencies.
During the low tourism seasons, we carry out solidarity work and training in rural tourism with the indigenous peoples of the towns, thus being able to enrich the trip with unique experiences, or develop a more “socio-cultural” tourism. We have also developed the homestay project in several Andean communities.
2017 – 2019: JOURNEYS OF EXPLORATION
Along with our travel agency work, we have continued to explore and travel because this is our passion: exploring places to develop programs and foster contact between our clients and the local population. This is how in recent years we have traveled to Mexico, Costa Rica, and Colombia to always innovate new circuits.
2020-2021: NEW TRADEMARK: ANDEAN GREAT TREKS
As a result of intense research and development projects in international tourism, the new commercial brand of the original economic group is consolidated, it is decided to establish the business with the Andean Great Treks brand, with which we want to revalue the wonderful history, culture and natural resources of our Andean region, of which we are very proud. And always maintain the same adventurous spirit from the beginning, but with more quality and safety in all the tourist circuits of South America.
