Tordes Schaefer-Charlton
My love of travel and discovering new places began when I was very young, with my parents regularly taking me abroad on family vacations. Later, as a teenager, if not off having adventures in foreign lands, I could be found reminiscing and daydreaming about travel and sharing my passion with others. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have set foot on all seven continents (the most recent being Antarctica in 2011), to have visited over 65 countries worldwide and to have lived for extended periods in five remarkable destinations: Wales, France, Germany, Australia and Bali. Now in my 15th year in the travel industry, my passion is as fervent as ever and these days I am the one planning the family vacations; taking my own children out to discover the world and to see them grow through their experiences. From snorkelling with sharks in Belize and zip-lining at Copan to watching orangutans in the wild in Borneo and climbing the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, I hope that I have instilled a love of travel in them and that they find as rewarding as I have over the years. Helping people discover the pleasure of travel and watching them get bitten by the travel bug is what I enjoy most.

Located 3 blocks away from main square and 10 minutes to Sacsayhuaman fortress, Anden Inca offers to Cusco’s visitors a unique tourist treatment fusing the magic and the Andean culture The sign of Anden Inca comes from the investigation of the Peruvian iconography and the use of this at the present time. The sign is the synthesis of the "Anden", used by the Incas for growing their food, and a house with a "two waters" ceiling, more resistant to rain, considering that pluvial precipitations in the mountain range are constant
The trip was great! Glad to have booked it through Indus. Keep up the great work.
