We were very happy that we chose Kuoda to plan the visit for us

Thank you for your lovely email and the recipes. Both are very much appreciated.
Overall, we had a fabulous visit to Peru. I cannot say enough about the service that you and your team Kuoda offered us. Everything went super smoothly and it was worry-free for us. You took care of all the details and all we had to do was to relax and enjoy the tour. Here are some thoughts:

Guides: We had 3 different guises Roberto (Colca Canon), Henry (Puno) and Luis (Cusco-Machu Picchu). All three of them were very professional, spoke perfect English, extremely knowledgeable, caring and very hospitable. They exposed us not just to the various sights, but also to the culture and the food. This really enriched our experience. We always felt safe with them as well as the drivers. And we formed a genuine friendship. A big thank you to all of them.

Accommodations: We were extremely pleased with all the hotels you chose for us.
However, the hotel in Puno was a little disappointing in terms of quality as well as service.

Meals: The meals that were included in our itinerary were all fine. The restaurants that Luis selected in Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu were outstanding. The restaurant that Marcello recommended in Cusco were amazing.

Itinerary: You and I worked on this jointly. In retrospect I would have preferred more time in Cusco. The bus ride through the Andes was OK but too long. I think we should have skipped that and flown directly from Puno to Cusco. Lake Titicaca was very interesting for the floating islands but I would have preferred to limit the boat ride to just the floating islands. The other island we visited was not particularly interesting.

In conclusion, we were very happy that we chose Kuoda to plan the visit for us. Top class service!!! A big thank you to you and Marcello and all the guides and drivers!!

Thank you for all your excellent planning and arranging

Thanks so much for checking in and sorry for the delay! We were in Chile with tons of family visits when you wrote, plus we had limited wifi access which meant I got behind on emails!

The whole trip was amazing–thank you for all your excellent planning and arranging! The guides and drivers were all fabulous, and we enjoyed meeting Mery in Cuzco. Please tell her we loved the picture frame.

Thanks for the recipes too. We will enjoy them. All of us were sad to leave and would love to return some day!

No other feedback–I have already passed along your agency info to friends and relatives who were intrigued after hearing about our fabulous time. I hope they contact you!

Happy New Year!
Best,

We loved our adventure in Argentina and Chile

Our apologies for the delayed response but we’ve been traveling.

We loved our adventure in Argentina and Chile and thank all of you at Kuoda for your excellent planning and execution. We especially enjoyed the company who took us on our horseback trip in Mendoza. The picnic barbecue was fabulous.

Both EOLO and Explora met and even exceeded our expectations. One thing we would have changed was to stay at EOLO the last night (instead of the hotel in Calafate)…we did learn that other guests were picked up early that morning to meet the Explora van. However, we did enjoy walking around Calafate and had two fun meals.

The Singular was nice, and we enjoyed seeing Santiago. Sorry to see the unrest but hopefully things have calmed down.

We would recommend Kuoda any day (as you may know, this is the third trip you have planned for us). We hope to see you again.
