Hi!
I'm James Gilmore Travel Advisor

I grew up in Florence, Alabama and majored in Spanish at the University of North Alabama. After working in academia for a time, I realized my true passion was using my cultural knowledge and language skills to connect people via travel and tourism. Since my first visit to Peru in 2013, I have been to every major destination in the country. Now I live in Lima with my wife, where you can find me planning future travels and enjoying the exquisite cuisine.

Travel opens your mind to new ideas, perspectives, and is the best way to learn about yourself: It also tears down those barriers that sometimes keep us from fulfilling our true potential in life.

Some tips and recommedations when traveling to Peru:




If you are a fan of cuisine (especially seafood), it is definitely worth spending some additional time in Lima. You don’t necessarily have to go to world-class or fancy restaurants - Peruvians take pride in their cooking and you’re never too far from an excellent local eatery!

Apart from the city tour in Cusco, be sure to take some time and explore the city on your own: There are countless museums, shops, art galleries, markets, and other interesting places that will have you lost for hours!

If you have time for it, there are some amazing opportunities to meet local families in the Sacred Valley. It’s an authentic cultural experience that should not be missed.
