Joseph Riva

Born into a family of tourism professionals in southern Peru, Joseph Riva has followed his passion for sharing Peru’s rich cultural, botanical, and geological heritage to become an adventure guide more than seven years ago. He’s an avid birder and photographer and is well-versed in Peru’s history, in particular Inca and Andean culture. Joseph speaks fluent English, Spanish, and the indigenous highlands language of Quechua, which affords him rare access to the native communities and customs of the Andes.
