See what our former guests have to say!

When you trust a travel company, you want to be sure that you are working with the best! While we can give you a million reasons why you should travel with us, our best ambassadors are those who have already experienced a curated, personalized journey with us! So take a look at just a sample of the feedback left by our happy and satisfied guests!

Kuoda has a family attitude and a pride in what you do

We’re sorry we’re late in our response to you-still catching up with “stuff” to do at home and work.  Your company could not have done one more thing to add to our enjoyment of your beautiful Peru.  From the first minute with Mitchel to the last one with him at the airport we felt like we were in good hands.  Every single person connected with Kuoda was attentive, thoughtful and friendly.  We so enjoyed our great time with Teddy and Raoul.  We never felt rushed or that they were getting impatient with us.  Teddy was a wonderful history teacher and we never worried when Raoul was at the wheel.  It was so great to be able to say to them “could you please stop a minute so I can get a photo”.  You sure can’t do that on a big tour bus.

The woven bottle holder from those sweet ladies in Chinchero was a thoughtful touch.  Raoul kept us supplied with ice cold water for them and those cold washclothes were very welcome also.  It felt like we were traveling around with two buddies.

We were so impressed that you took time to try to connect with all of your clients.  That’s unusual for the head of a company to take such an active interest.  We thoroughly enjoyed  meeting you at breakfast.  It went by way too fast!

A successful company always starts from the top and Kuoda Tours is proof of that.  Your enthusiasm for what you do really shows through you and your employees.  Kuoda has a family attitude and a pride in what you do.  Our time in Peru was that more special because of it.

Mucho Gracias!

Your friends,

Amazing Dream Trip

Dear Kuoda Staff,

Thank you for arranging our amazing dream trip! Peru marked my fiftieth country visit, and it was certainly one of my favorites! We appreciate your diligence during the pre and “in country” trip assistance. Your agency is the most professional and client-centered agency we’ve encountered globally. Muchas Gracias!

We loved all the heavenly accommodations, especially the Sol y Luna.  We were treated like royalty in this marvelous oasis. All guides, drivers, and planned excursions were executed with compassion, historical and cultural knowledge, and a commitment to customer service. For example, Jole was the efficient, friendly, and perfect planner to customize our trip to include a visit to an orphanage. She responded to all questions in a timely manner. She is the super sleuth of travel!

Gary’s guidance and plethora of knowledge about Peruvian history and culture helped us to see Machupicchu not only from tourists’ eyes but from the eyes of the past!

The durations of all included excursions were perfect; activity levels also matched our specific needs. We were treated like family by all Kuoda staff from start to finish. We really appreciate your professionalism and friendliness, especially Michael’s outstanding service in Lima. His amiable, authentic demeanor made us feel so welcomed and valued!

Our personal service from the company owner, Mery, also reiterates the company’s energy, optimism, and firm philosophy of learning together culturally. She personally escorted us to our flight back to Lima. Her enthusiasm is amazing and a driving force for this exceptional company!

Again, we highly recommend you to friends, family, and fellow travelers worldwide. You strive for excellence, and you do not disappoint!

Muchas Gracias,

Superb Sunset Overlooking the Pacific Ocean

Thank you so much Mery;
this is very helpful.

It was great to meet you and all the Kuoda folks and we both greatly appreciated the excellent care by Kuoda during our journey-Marlene, Michel, Edgar and Freddy and yourself and other drivers. We enjoyed the trip very much and I think better still it stimulated Alex from a variety of perspectives and hopefully will influence him going forward to explore more of Latin America and Peru again.  Alex was fascinated by the music program in Cusco and we had a good last day in Lima-with a superb sunset overlooking the Pacific ocean.

Best regards

The Best Trip of our Lives

We’re finally getting settled back here in snowy, cold Michigan. The trip was amazing and we can’t thank you enough for the journey you put together for us. Definitely the best trip of our lives (so far)!  Greg put together an awesome gallery of our Peru photos. If you’re interested in seeing some of our photos and some commentary, feel free to take a look. We’ll be leaving this trip summary up for a few weeks, then we’ll be making it private. If you see any photos you would like to use, you have our permission.

Thanks again, Mery!
