Meet the Team
Founder and Owner
Wendy’s family has been in the Peruvian tourism industry for over 30 years; no surprises there. Wendy has become one of the top culinary experts in Peru, providing consulting and advice to tourists, businesses and governments alike. She is always included by the Government of Peru on their list of people to talk about the Peruvian culinary revolution. Wendy is a foodie and has dedicated hundreds of hours to assuring that our Taste of Peru tour includes the best of our cuisine (certainly not the worst part of her job). Her detailed oriented and perfectionist personality has been instrumental in the creation and implementation of new special programs.
Founder and Owner
Brian is a US-born international lawyer (don’t hold that against him please!), with a true love for travel and food. Much of our model is based on righting the wrongs he has experienced during his over 3 million miles as a business and vacation traveler around the world. He especially loves the culinary tour and anything related to it. He says, without a doubt, that Peruvian cuisine beats any other cuisine in the world. For Brian, eating out in Lima or any other Peruvian destinations, such as Cusco or Arequipa, has made eating elsewhere a little more of chore.
