About Julio C. Tello

Born in Lima, Peru during the Maoist guerrilla uprising of the 1980’s, Julio Cesar Tello began his life amidst the violence and poverty of a nation in crisis. His parents, a nurse and factory manager, fled the country as the violence increased and economy fell. Twenty years would pass before Julio Cesar returned to Peru. Upon his return he traveled extensively throughout Peru meeting his countrymen and women. On seeing the conditions and getting feedback from other travelers, the decision was made to help his country develop and grow tourism in the region.
