I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.

Anthony Bourdain once said the following "Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind." This accurately (and far more eloquently) describes how a trip with Julian and his company, Large Minority Travel, will leave you feeling. I've taken two trips with LM, Lanka Challenge Southern Route and India Rickshaw Challenge. Large Minority has completely changed the way I like to travel and it will do the same for you should you decide to go on one of their adventures. It is both responsible and meaningful travel. It will push you out of your comfort zone. You will: grow as a person, laugh, get frustrated, get lost, try things you never thought you would and you may even cry, the good kind of course. You will see unrivaled beauty and things that may break your heart. You will drink, dance, and stare at the stars. You may even catch a glimpse of an elephant. You will find your tribe and you will make friends for life. You will help local economies, schools, children, and villages. You WILL have the most epic vacation you've ever had and will come back for more. Cambo Challenge 2019? Family Tukster will be there. Will you?

Large Minority's trips are the greatest way to travel a country. I just finished the Lanka Challenge and can't wait to sign up for another trip. Thanks so much for the experience!

    About Machu Travel Peru

    Founded in 2011, the relatively new Machu Travel Peru is dedicated to providing sustainable travels through Peru.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    They create customized itineraries suitable to numerous travel styles. Their guides are passionate and knowledgeable about Peruvian culture and this enthusiasm becomes a part of your tour. You will make your way to Machu Picchu learning of Peruvian history and customs. 

    Who Travels With Them?

    Travelers interested in learning about Peru from a historical and local perspective. Many of their trips go to Machu Picchu - for which it is advisable to be in generally good shape. 

    Where Do They Operate?

    They focus in Peru, with emphasis in Cusco and Machu Picchu. 

    Why Travel With Them?

    Peru is quickly becoming a champion of responsible travel, and Machu Travel Peru is no exception. They work with local rural communities, and are involved in numerous social projects.

    About Large Minority

    Team and challenge based adventure holidays throughout parts of Southeast Asia and the Amazon.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    This is a unique kind of travel that involves a sense of adventure and competition. Similar to the Amazing Race, you are presented with checkpoints to reach and challenges to participate in along the way. While there is a large element of fun to their approach, they place a strong emphasis on helping and contributing to local communities. Some of their challenges are called “charity challenges” centered around creating as positive an impact as possible.

    Who Travels With Them?

    They are definitely geared toward younger travelers, in the 18-30 range. Activities are often physically challenging and the process definitely requires a sense of excitement about the unknown and figuring things out on the ground.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Their challenges are focused in SE Asia, and they also operate a challenge in the Amazon. The “Lanka Challenge” takes you in a rickshaw all around Sri Lanka (multiple routes are available). The “Cambo Challenge” takes place in Cambodia with you and a tuk tuk. One route with many fun activities and challenges along the way. The “Philippines Sailing Challenge” involves sailing the waters of the Philippines in a traditional “paraw”. The “Amazon Challenge” takes you into the jungle waterways in a variety of vessels.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Consider their tours as a more “down to earth version of the Amazing Race.” They are team based adventure tours, so you’ll definitely enjoy traveling with the more if you like being competitive and working closely with others toward a common goal. The common denominator of course is travel and adventure, so you’ll most likely have a lot in common with everyone from the get-go.
