Peter Boehm is German-born but says, “I have Latin blood running through my veins.” Pete has guided in Peru and across South America since 1984. He arrived as a traveler and became one of the first to trek many of Peru’s then unexplored Inca trails. With countless captivating stories about his adventures along these remote routes, Peter still notes, “The best moment on a trip? Every time I arrive into Machu Picchu—goosebumps! In Peru we are so lucky to have such a great mix of nature and culture.” With decades of experience, Peter has longtime relationships with many friends in the villages along the trail (our guests have called him “the Mayor of the Sacred Valley”). He is endlessly good-natured and shares his insights and local connections with trip members with great enthusiasm. “I can really be and feel with WT clients—it is never superficial traveling together.”
Traveling with Peter was like being with a very knowledgeable, thoughtful, longtime friend. Through the personal relationships he has developed over the years, every place we visited we were welcomed like family, allowing us to feel like honored guests rather than tourists. He made the trip for us!
