Although Santiago Castelo lives and works in Peru and is an expert on Peruvian culture and history, his knowledge spreads beyond his country’s borders. Having lived in the U.S. for a time, he is able to relate to North Americans and is comfortable conversing on any subject you choose. Born and raised in the Cusco area, Santiago has trekked the Inca Trail hundreds of times and will amaze you with everything he knows about the flora and fauna, the Incas and the Spanish, and the local food and drink. Santiago’s compassion for his people is easily apparent, as is his wickedly fun sense of humor!
“Santiago was the best – an encyclopedia and always attentive to safety. A really nice guy as well. He has a great respect for Andean culture and I learned a lot from him.”
“On a scale of 1 to 10 with ten being the best … I would rate Santiago as a 12.”
