andBeyond expands into Peru and Ecuador

Kate Webster

Building on its South America portfolio, luxury experiential travel company andBeyond is expanding its business to Peru and Ecuador.

andBeyond CEO, Joss Kent said that tours in Chile and Argentina are gaining popularity, and an increasing amount of business was spilling over into other top destinations in South America.

“With an extremely experienced team on the ground, we are confident in extending our services to help our guests experience both traditional highlights such as Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands as well as the lesser known, but equally as beautiful, gems of Peru and Ecuador,” Kent added.

Like the Chile and Argentina program, andBeyond’s offering in the new regions will be based on the most up to date local knowledge, as well as a set of exceptional experiences, combined with knowledgeable and professional guides specialised in a variety of fields. The best available transport, priority services at hotels and restaurants and around the clock assistance ensure that guests feel at ease at all times.

andBeyond’s offerings include family-friendly tours such as A Peru Family Adventure, a 7-day journey during which children have the opportunity to meet local villagers, interact with unusual animals such as llamas and alpacas, and indulge in a variety of optional outdoor adventures.

The Flavours of Peru is a gourmet itinerary that explores the traditional tastes of the country in Lima and Cusco before delighting in the scenic wonders of Machu Picchu. The Magical Ecuador and The Galapagos combines history and traditional cooking in Quito with island hopping among the surreal landscapes and plentiful wildlife of the Galapagos.
