You don’t get under the skin of Buenos Aires by watching a tango performance staged for tourists but from a private lesson and a night at the milongas with a famous tanguero. You won’t be able to unpick the mysteries of the ancient Peruvian civilizations with a two-a-penny tour guide but accompanied by a world-renowned expert in Moche pottery. Nor will you experience the thrill of the Rio carnival like a carioca by merely watching it from the grandstands. If that’s your lifelong dream, we offer a full immersion that takes in samba classes, visits to the workshops where they make the floats and costumes, guiding by a carnival historian to include background on the social and political aspects, a personal stylist on speed dial to create jaw-dropping costumes for a week’s worth of parties, and even a money-can’t-buy position on top of one of the floats to take part in the actual parade!
At Dehouche, we believe that exploring the richness of local culture is a personal endeavour best enjoyed not with guides but obsessives. We partner with historians, musicians, and curators who show you avenues that go beyond the cerebral to the sensory – via food, music and participatory art.
From a morning exploring the architecture of Brasilia with a personal friend of Oscar Niemeyer to meeting the shaman in Cusco who is the guardian of the sacred mountain of Ausangate, we’ll showcase the layered, fascinating stories of our beloved region in a new light.
There are no rigid itineraries, only your insatiable curiosity.
Each Dehouche itinerary is unique and tailor made.
