Historically, Peruvian tour guides have been predominantly male. Females are seldom asked to take leadership roles on the mountain. However, their presence is a driving force behind many tour companies’ success thanks to the roles they play indoors. It wasn’t until recent years that women were asked to step into leadership roles outdoors. Today, you will find more women becoming tour guides and porters in Peru thanks to Alpaca Expeditions and our efforts to expand the role of females. Read on to learn more about our female guides and porters leading tours to Machu Picchu Peru.
What You Need to Know About Our Female Guides
We work hard to attract the top guides in the country to come to work for us — male and female. Because we strongly believe in female empowerment, it is our distinct pleasure to give women the opportunity to lead tours on the Inca Trail. Luckily for us they only add to our company’s success. The women-led tours offer a unique perspective. As a result, our customers often specifically request these tours.
We are happy to support female guides as they navigate their new professional careers. We are steadily increasing the number of women that we employ. These jobs lift them up, celebrate their leadership skills, and provide them with job stability and a sound source of income that they can use to support their families. Travel is a great equalizer, providing a rich experience for all who are brave enough to embark on a journey. We love that women get to be a part of these experiences on the mountain.
