Meet Roy Benites

I was born and raised in Peru. I earned my degree in Hotel and Tourism Administration at Ricardo Palma University in 2004 and began my carrier as a Tour Coordinator, working for a large Organization named The Hope Alliance in Lima. After immigrating to the USA, I was anxious to continue my career in Hospitality. In 2008 I started working for one of the most exclusive Resorts in North America. Stein Eriksen Lodge became a game changer and was eye opening for me, 10 years in the company gave me a complete understanding of the highest customer service in the industry and the requirements to be a Five-Star and Five Diamonds luxury Hotel and Resort by Forbes and AAA. With the knowledge to do great but with desires also to comeback to my roots, in 2017 I started sharing my passion for my country, inviting a few friends to travel with me to Peru. What started as a small project quickly became a business. As a Peruvian Tour Guide, EXPLORE Peru represents the beginning of an exciting journey, and I know that with dedication, hard work and passion for what I do I will be able to achieve my dreams. I am an active professional and pride myself on my ability to add personal touches to every tour I conduct. It is extremely important to me that my guests return home with experiences to remember.
