Tour Leaders
Half-English, half-Peruvian, Adrian is now based in Peru and is a valued member of our tour leading team, having led tours with us for over 20 years. He has travelled all over Latin America and gained a vast wealth of knowledge which he enjoys sharing with his clients. This fascinating continent brimming with history, makes his ‘to-do list’ an ever growing challenge.

In between tours Adrian likes to go trekking, stalk out traditional fiestas, and haggle for a great bargain at a local market. His current favourite spot to visit in Latin America is Mexico – with its grand ruins, quaint colonial towns, delicious food and miles of stunning white sand beaches – he believes it is one of those country’s which has it all.

My top tips


Speak to people (no matter how bad your Spanish is) - Latin Americans are extremely open and friendly.


Try to include a fiesta in your trip - they're happening almost everywhere all the time, and are an integral part of Latin America cultures.


To visit Easter Island on any trip to Chile.
