At work, my goal is to support, care for, and enjoy sharing my country, its landscapes, culture and people.
I am a tour guide and I have years of experience guiding in the provinces of Jujuy, Salta, Tucumán and Catamarca, as well as Northern Chile and Southern Bolivia. I drive a licenced 4x4 truck and I have a small business for renting equipment and arranging logistics for adventure tourism. With 15 years of experience guiding and managing a travel agency, I can help you organize day trips or 21-day programs in the region.
I was born in Jujuy, Argentina on March 30, 1976. I am a socialist, environmental activist and atheist. I am a father of a beautiful girl of 12 years. I'm single. I have studied in advertising and archeology. I am a trekking guide, licenced driver of a 4x4 truck, rock climbing guide, mountaineer, lifeguard (WFR Wilderness First Responder), and have attended numerous first aid courses wherein I was certified. When I am not working, I enjoy cooking and my specialty is a type of Argenine barbeque called "asado". I live in Tilcara, a small town of 7000 people, where I also enjoy in my free time my hobbies of photography, woodworking and barbecuing with my friends.
My services are personalized to each client and I try to always be aware of schedules, meals, safety, comfort, pertinent information and the needs of each person. Together with the striking scenery of the Andean Northwest, I can create unique opportunities for my clients. I also try to adapt my tours to the needs, interests and energy of my passengers.
In my home here in the Northwest of Argentina, you can enjoy impresive landscapes, hospitable people, and a rich and vibrant culture, and I invite you to enjoy this incredible experience with me.
IMPORTANT: Most of the time I am working in the mountains without internet. Sorry, I can not answer your email immediately.
A Recent Review of this guide
Victor was great! My husband and I had scheduled a single day but went with him a second day because we learned and saw so much. He is willing to put in as long of a day as you'd like and is full of valuable insights about Argentina and the region. He also rents outdoor equipment and can set up much longer trips involving either camping or regular lodging. An excellent value. We would use Victor as a guide again.
