Fairtreatmet to Porters!
We will provide you with the best guides, porters, and chefs during our tours. Porters are the backbone of our business, and we have been fighting for fair treatment and better working conditions for them since I started working as a porter. My father was a porter also, and we worked together from 2003 to 2006.
We provide homestay in Cusco and Ollantaytambo to our porters from far away. We also offer full uniforms, tents, shoes, and insurance. We are one of the few companies that pay proper wages (The highest salaries to our porters).
Our Porters will carry all the equipment and food during our trekking tours; without them is not possible to complete treks like the Classic Inca Trail. TreXperience porters have a high salary, and you will see them clearly with the best equipment, their own tent, and the best food, and they are the happiest porters. It is worth mentioning that TreXperience provides insurance for all our staff, appropriate equipment, and porter tents.
We include female staff in all our operations; 70% of our office staff is women. We hire female porters, chefs, and guides. We are hiring female porters and training them to become leaders, chefs, and tour guides.
