Claudio was born in 1982, in the town of Pomocanchi, Acomayo, south of Cuzco. At age 16 Claudio found employment in a small guest house in Central Cusco. Here he met tourists for the first time and began to imagine a career in Tourism. He pursued his dream at the Universidad Nacional San Antonio Abad del Cusco, graduating (Licenciado /BA) in Tourism, with continuing studies in English and German in private language schools. Now a full-time guide, Claudio is delighted to share his knowledge of the rich natural and cultural history of Peru, as well as his intimate knowledge of its diverse traditional and modern cultures.
