Tour Leaders
Elizabeth’s adventurous spirit led her to travel round the world, featuring a 6 month stint in South America during which time she fell for the lively music, rhythmic dancing and general alegria (happiness) of the people and settled in Peru. She began teaching English in Peru, dividing her time between the northern beaches of Mancora and the colonial city of Arequipa and then became a valued member of our tour leading team.

Elizabeth most enjoys taking people to rare, unique places and the sharing their marvel, such as the great Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. Although Elizabeth is a great enthusiast for all things Latin, she remains loyal to her roots never leaving home without a pot a marmite and English tea bags!

My top tips

1.

Dare to venture off the beaten track, ditch the guide book and follow your instincts (or preferably tour leader!) Being with locals is more interesting than being with other tourists.

2.

Try to think and order local food, such as fish on the coast and alpaca in the highlands.

3.

Learn a few Spanish/Portuguese words before you travel. ‘Hellos’ and ‘Thank yous’ will get you further than you think.
