Domingo Atao, is a professional guide with over 20 years of experience guiding in photography, stargazing and exploring South America. He was born in a small Andean Village in the Acomayo Community and his first language is Quechua. When he was seven years old he moved alone to the city of Cusco to work to self-support himself and his family in the community. Since Spanish was not his mother tongue he self-taught himself and became a native speaker. He pursued his education at night and graduated with a degree in tourism. His passion for his culture and travel has taken him all Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile. He founded Ayni Adventure Travel 3 years ago because his idea of tourism differs from other travel agencies. Domingo feels that everyone visiting Peru and other countries in South America need to share and live the rich culture these countries have to offer.
