Fertur Peru Travel Celebrates its 23rd year!

On this day in 1994, Fertur Peru Travel was born.

As we mark our 23rd year in business, we continue to strive to provide the best travel services possible, before, during and after every customer’s journey.

We had a  busy and fruitful year. We moved our Cusco Operations office to a new, more central location on Avenida el Sol, just two blocks down from the Qoricancha.

We were informed this past week that after an exhaustive review, we’re on track to receive the highest CALTUR rating from Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism. Fingers crossed.

With all of that, we decided to have a little celebration.

Siduith and I are so very proud of our staff of travel advisers, hand-picked experienced guides and operations managers who dedicate themselves to ensure the satisfaction of every traveler we serve.

Rick Vecchio, Fertur’s director of development and marketing, was educated at the New School for Social Research and Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. He worked for Pacifica Radio WBAI and as a daily reporter for newspapers in New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts. Then in 1996, he decided it was time to realize a life-long dream of traveling to Peru. He never went back.

While serving as Peru country manager for the South American Explorers from 1997-1999, he fell in love with Fertur’s founder, Siduith Ferrer, and they married. Over the next six years, he worked as a correspondent for The Associated Press. Meanwhile, Siduith built the business, which he joined in January 2007.

Now he designs custom educational and adventure tour packages for corporate and institutional clients, oversees Fertur’s Internet platform and occasionally leads special trips, always with an eye open for a good story to write about.
