After nine years of traveling, I would like to share with you my experiences and all that I have learned. I want to encourage you to take the decision that is already in your head… to make… THE TRIP OF YOUR DREAMS!
After having taken the decision to leave Belgium and my dear family and fly to my new home, many  people told me: “We all talk about doing something like that, but YOU…. YOU JUST GO AHEAD AND DO IT!” And yes, so I DID!

At the end of 2014 I established myself in my favorite city Arica, a port city and the capital of the northern Arica y Parinacota region in Chile. The city is located 18 km south of the Peruvian border and close to the Bolivian border and Lauca Park. The nickname of the city is ‘La Ciudad de la Eterna Primavera’ or ‘The City of Eternal Spring’. And that is really not an exaggeration. I had been to Arica several times  before I finally decided to move there. I visited Arica during different seasons, and all the time the weather was very pleasant, temperatures were nice and the people were very friendly. All of that, along with the fact that Arica is a real base for those who want to make a trip through the Andean Region of Chile, Peru and Bolivia, prompted my decision to make Arica my new home. Arica is also well connected to Santiago and Lima, so it is the perfect place from which to travel to the rest of the Chilean regions or for any other South American experience.
 
Traveling is truly my passion! The splendor of nature and my interest in different cultures which, evidently, include the history of the Chinchorro people here in the North, the Incas and many more, will never tire me. Traveling the world, discovering new things, exploring and visiting other countries, sniffing culture and admiring architecture, meeting other people, I LOVE IT! So for me, it was a natural decision to turn my hobby into my daily work by organizing and guiding tours and  sharing all my experiences in my favorite continent. So far, I have not regretted it for a single moment.

A good tour guide is crucial, and I know that from my own experience! He or she must be an added value to your (dream) trip. He or she should not only answer questions and help and offer support or organize, but must also be a cheerful and positive person, someone who can turn your trip into the journey of a lifetime. That is what I want you to experience when traveling with me! Together we will create that great experience!
In order to guarantee a perfect organization, I work in close co-operation with local, specialized people who truly know the area and who are genuinely interested in sharing their knowledge.
Together, we will ensure that everything is organized to your specific needs, so let me know what they are and all you have to do is enjoy the beauty of your journey.
If there should be any unexpected issues, my team and I are ready to solve them in the best possible manner. Our experience as guides and / or drivers will turn your adventure into a life experience which you will never forget!
