Our story began in 1977 in Lima, Peru. While Machu Picchu sits firmly on everyone’s bucket-list today, four decades ago tourism was in its infancy in Peru. Inspired by the incredible diversity packed into one single country, Condor Travel’s founders were struck by Peru’s potential and recognized the need for an innovative DMC dedicated to this special part of South America. Our first office was set up in Peru’s capital by passionate, local experts in what is now one of the most diverse travel destinations in the world.
South America without borders
Our company name was inspired by the majestic Andean condor, so perhaps it’s no surprise that we spread our wings and went on to open integrated regional offices in Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Brazil, Bolivia, Argentina and Colombia. Our local teams have evolved to offer in-depth expertise for all types of travel in South America.
South America without borders
We may have grown over the last forty years, but our passion for travel and commitment to responsible travel has never wavered. We were the first DMC in Peru to set up our own NGO, Wings, in 2007, our Cusco operations are Rainforest Alliance Certified, and we introduced a carbon off-set scheme to make it straightforward for your clients to help mitigate their carbon footprint
