Alex Permyakov
Private guide, travel designer and photographer
I'm a travel photographer, guide, and expedition organizer. I work with natural, historical, and cultural destinations around the world, creating meaningful and sustainable travel experiences.

Since 2004 I've been running tours and expeditions in Asia, Africa, South America, Oceania, and Europe. My job is to create unique and meaningful trips. I know the best time to visit Iguazu Falls and Machu Picchu, how to arrange a spectacular drive over the mirror of Salar de Uyuni, where to watch the sunset on Rapa Nui. I love making connections and will be happy to introduce you to monks in Tibetan monasteries, Golden Eagle hunters in Western Mongolia, nature conservationists in Namibia, and other fantastic people around the world.

The inspiration for your next trip you may find in Travel collections, and if you want to arrange a private trip – feel free to send me an email or WhatsApp message. I love my job and will be happy to show you the world's most spectacular locations.

I also run guiding courses, where I help guides and tourism entrepreneurs to create world-class travel experiences.

What makes my trips
special?
I create personal and unique travel experiences
that help you to connect with nature, culture, and history
Connect with the place
Unlike many travel companies that would just show you interesting places, I create travel itineraries that connect you with the place and allow you to explore and experience it. For example, I have specially designed programs for visits to places like Iguazu Falls, Machu Picchu, or Rapa Nui, that would avoid crowds, have extended time on location, and have some unique moments like seeing the sunrise or having a sunset dinner.
Meet inspiring people
Every unforgettable trip includes meetings with inspiring local people. I'll be happy to introduce you to my friends, who will show you their homeland. For example, in Western Mongolia we will definitely visit a house of nomads – Golden Eagle hunters, in South Africa and Namibia we can't miss visiting local wildlife conservationists and indigenous people, and in Peru it is essential to visit the keepers of Quechua and Aymara cultures.
Experience, not just travel
Instead of staying in soulless hotel chains, we stay in small boutique hotels and villas, operated by local families. We don't just go to eat, but book tables in restaurants with passionate local chefs. Instead of traditional day tours, we go to see sunrises and have sunset dinners. I try to make every part of the trip an experience to remember.
Fund good things with your travel
Instead of paying money to travel corporations, we arrange every travel program that more money stays in local economies, fund scientific, conservation, and community programs
