Cultural Expeditions is a boutique tour agency created in 1999 by Elvi Bjorkquist, an artist with deep ties to Peru. A veteran traveler, she founded Cultural Expeditions to provide deeper cultural experiences than other tour agencies for travel to Peru.
An experienced traveler, Elvi lived abroad for several years and has traveled to 29 countries. Peru captured her heart in 1995 because of its ancient culture, exquisite beauty, archaeological sites, arts, and historical importance. A specialist in art and art history, Pre-Colombian and Peruvian cultures as well as the early Spanish Contact Period, Elvi has a BFA and two Master’s degrees. Each trip to Peru has made her more committed to sharing the cultural richness of Peru with others.
A licensed expedition leader and past president of the Official Guides of Tourism Association in Cusco, Peru, Wilbert has 30 years of experience in tour leadership in Peru. In 2007, he was awarded the “best tour guide” designation by the Peruvian Ministry of Tourism. His passion for history and his scholarly knowledge (Bachelor’s and Masters from the National University of San Antonio de Abad, Cusco, Peru) and his language proficiency (English, Spanish, and French) give him the ability to make Peruvian history and heritage come alive. He not only knows about the cultural heritage of Peru, he is also connected with the people and places important to making Cultural Expeditions tours unique and memorable.
"What a grand trip Tom and I had. The weather was perfect, the food delicious, and the scenery marvelous!! The guides were all wonderful and Wilbert in Cusco was the most fabulous guide anyone could imagine. He was so thorough, answered all our questions, and knew every nuance of Inca culture and tradition anyone could want to know. I learned so much from him and he was so gracious that it makes me want to go back…"
