Our northern Peru trip with Dilser was simply phenomenal. Dilser is an incredibly knowledgeable, passionate and organized guide. He arranged for a very diverse experience to give us a sense of the distinct cultural and historical aspects of various parts of northern Peru. The time we spent exploring the active archeological sites of northern Peru, including Chan Chan, Huaca de la Luna, Huaca del Sol, el Brujo, etc were enriched immensely by Dilser's knowledge from his own background in history and archeology, as well his evident love for Peruvian history. Northern Peru is a very under focused part of Peru- but it is a must-see for those who want to get a more holistic understanding of the country's rich history. The pre-Incan histories are simply fascinating.
Dilser also organized a tour of Huascaran national reserve. We completed a very challenging hike to Lagoon 69, and Dilser was a patient and committed guide through every step of that incredibly rewarding experience. Huascaran is an astonishingly beautiful part of Peru and can only be done justice by visiting.
If you're thinking of going to Peru, go to northern Peru. And if you've decided on going to northern Peru, take Dilser with you. He is not only worth every cent but is also just a wonderful person through the experience.
