Austin-Lehman Adventures has announced that Troy Glennon, its Latin America travel guru, has been named one of the world’s leading experts on Peru travel in Condé Nast Traveler’s 13th Annual Top Travel Specialists list for 2012. This is the first time that he has been named to this prestigious list.
Condé Nast Traveler describes Glennon as “a former tour guide in Peru, perfect for active travelers who want to explore without a heavy reliance on guides. He knows how to avoid crowds at the country’s highlights and where the less-touristed gems are—say, the Colca Canyon, where you can watch condors soar in the thermal currents.”
In his 13 years of traveling about Peru, Glennon has opened visitors’ eyes to the country that boasts 75 percent of the earth’s ecosystems plus the archeological remains of many expansive pre Columbian civilizations found spread across Peru’s deserts, mountains and cloud forests.”
In upcoming Austin-Lehman Adventures itineraries to Peru he envisions adding Colca Canyon – considered one of the deepest canyons in the world – along with less-visited regions of southern and eastern Peru.
Glennon has been both a solo traveler and group tour leader in Peru, Bolivia and Chile. He studied in Mexico and has a degree in Spanish Literature and Culture from the University of Washington.
