Michael R. Barthelmess

Michael is a successful marketing consultant (former marketing manager for a large travel agency) that has worked with several of the top travel agencies  and operators in Peru. He has worked  as a consultant for  banks, large retailers and multi-national  breweries in Peru just to name a few.  He also became a trainer for Google Peru in their advertising program and has given workshops and classes throughout Peru to various small/medium/large companies, insitutes as well as other advertising agencies.  After over 10 years of experience in building great relationships in the travel industry he decided that the next logical step was to set up an agency with the many professionals he had met throughout the years and so Journey Machupicchu was created.  Michael insisted on having only the best operators, travel advisers  and managers handling our valued travelers making sure their Peru experience is a memorable one.
