You can count on your Adventure Leader to smooth the way, take care of the details, and turn your South America vacation into a truly memorable experience. If you have chosen an optional extension, you will also enjoy the services of a Regional Expert at your hotel, who can help you plan your exploration.
Meet Enrique Virto
"Traveling for me is like breathing." So says Vantage Adventure Leader Enrique Virto, who was born in Cuzco, Peru, and has led travelers to 30 different countries on five continents. Enrique studied Peruvian history in Cuzco, Philosophy and Psychology in Paris, and ultimately received a degree with licensure in tourism. As an avid outdoorsman, Enrique says his favorite places are those where he can introduce travelers to natural wonders and variable terrain, among them Machu Picchu, the Galapagos, and Lake Titicaca. When asked what his travelers should take back with them, Enrique answers "the tastes of typical food, the sounds of local music, the spirit of our celebrations, the colors of our textiles, the moments of interaction with local people. These are the souvenirs that last forever."
