What We’re About

The Peru Experience has been operating, first in Trujillo Y Chiclayo, and then in the UK since the 1990s. At the same time in Peru Michael was involved in the production of Guia Peru Norte, a travel guide about North Peru so, together with Amalia, was able to learn much about the nascent Peruvian tourism.

We are passionate about Peru and would love to share our expertise with you.


We hope you will soon feel the same about Peru as we do.

Michael Read

While Amalia and Michael, an English teacher, were living in Trujillo Y Chiclayo, Peru, Amalia’s home town, where Michael was teaching English, Amalia introduced him to a friend of hers, who was planning a guide to North Peru.. Michael soon became involved in it full-time, travelling with Oswaldo all over North Peru, first to gather content and advertising and later to promote the guide, for which he did an English translation. He also ran a travel agency before returning to England in 1998 for the schooling of their son. Having fallen in love with both Peru and its people, with Amalia he founded Peru Experience Ltd.

Amalia Chico de Read

Amalia was the inspiration behind the Peru Experience. A secretary by profession, she had gone to work in Paris where she and Michael met. It was their visits to Peru together, and in particular Trujillo Y Chiclayo, that gave them the incentive to go and live there. As she already knew Peru very well – and especially the North, which is where she comes from – she soon passed on this love and experience to Michael.
