My name is Paul Opp, 18 years ago I made my first journey to Peru and fell in love with the culture, the people and the country. Fours years later I moved here, adopted two Peruvian daughters Who had been abandoned by the death of their mother,  and started a nonprofit called  People of Peru Project. Since then we have opened a crisis center for abused girls, a free medical and dental clinic and an educational support program for poor childrenPaul with  a scarlet macaw in the Iquitos area. We also provide humanitarian services  for people all over the country from high in the Andes above Cusco to the Amazon River basin. I have worked with hundreds of groups planning trips to this amazing country, from luxury vacations to working in the slums of Belen. If you  really want to meet and Paul in Machu Picchu - over the rainbowget to know the people and culture then Peru VolunTours is the place for you.  Each trip is customized for you. If you want the standard cookie cutter tour, I would suggest you use one of the rubber stamp tour operators. If you want a life changing experience that will impact an impoverished family......join us.
