Read Luxury Travel Reviews from Former Kuoda Travel Guests

Enjoyable and Affordable Luxury

Kuoda is the travel company that delivers exactly as they promise and even more. Mery Calderon, the founder and the president of the company based in Cusco, Peru has assembled a team of passionate guides, greeters and drivers who customize your trip to your needs and more important provides VALUE for the money you spent to enjoy this great country. The punctual staff meets and greets you in clean and spacious vans and make the process of arrival at airports or train stations and checking into hotels with ease. Over the course of nine days we spent one day in Lima at the Villa Barranco boutique hotel well located in the historically area of Lima within walking distance of the promenade on the water front and a safe walking distance to restaurants. Bianca and Caeser were are fabulous knowledgeable and kind guide and hosts. We flew to Puerto Maldonado and we were wisked downriver to the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica and fabulous stay of food and hiking in glamour camping conditions. Yet another flight to Cusco where we were greeted by Jose our driver, Jason our liaison and then there is Santiago , our guide for four days. It is all about having a great guide when you travel and that we did with intelligent dialogue , explanations and personal stories that make this trip memorable. The Inca trail by car with numerous hiking up the mountains and then a list to Machu Picchu over two days. Follow their advice and stay the night so you can enjoy a magical sunrise and hike to sungate and for a great challenge also to the WaynaPicchu hike before returning by train to Cusco . Great local company to use for your travel plans Short and Sweet is tough to beat.

A Journey through a Fabled Past


There are those who have jobs, those who have careers and those who are passionate about their life’s calling. Kuoda’s staff are the epitome of passion. Intelligent, witty, generous, warm and inviting are only a short list of the qualities possessed by this company. I have been to 20 different countries and my trip to Peru was simply the most memorable and fulfilling trip of my life…all due in part to Kuoda’s attention to detail and desire to serve. I am counting the days until I can return to Peru. Outstanding job Kuoda Team!

Experiencing Peru Tour

The most organized and well planned trip ever. Aniel, Anita, Don and David

One of the best personalized Travel Companies. Have traveled all over the World, however, Kuoda exceeded all expectations. The diligence and attention to detail ensured our visit to Peru was the best ever. Ask for Jeremy to be your travel guide in Cusco and Machu Picchu, Urpi to be your overall planner and the Owner Mery Calderon is available to provide any assistance anyone may need. Urpi suggested the best hotels for any budget and her choices were hand picked for our needs. Really appreciated Jeremy’s understanding of our desires – which he accommodated with a sense of humor.

Can not give enough KUDOS to KUODA

We’ve never used a personalised travel company before but after using Kuoda we highly recommend this way of travelling. Kuoda made our trip outstanding right from the start. Via email Kuoda put together a personalised itinerary and made suggestions using local companies that we would never have been able to find ourselves. It was important to us that we stayed in locally run hotels to support the local economy rather than international chains, and this is Kuoda’s philosophy too. The whole trip exceeded our expectations over and over. The hotels were absolute top quality, the guides were amazing and the whole experience was fantastic. We were able to see and do so much more than if we had tried to do it ourselves, and nothing was ever any trouble. We had an amazing time at Inkaterra in the Amazon (piranha fishing was a highlight), Kathy our guide in the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu/Huayna Picchu was so friendly, knowledgeable and lovely. She explained not only the history of the places we visited but also gave us an insight into Peru’s culture today, we could talk to her about a huge range of topics and she always had an answer/explanation and a huge knowledge base. The ease of travel with Kuoda was an eye opener for us, we didn’t have to worry about transfers from the airport, how to get about in remote areas, language differences and were able to enjoy our time in Peru much more as a consequence. We will definitely be using Kuoda again next time we come to South America.

Journey to the Center of the Inca Empire

Trip to Peru

Perfect itenery, perfect planning, perfect guides- how else does one rate Kuoda!! My daughter and I were in Cusco last week for Spring break and I am so happy we chose Kuoda for our visit to Peru.
From the time we arrived in Lima to the time we left, we had a personalized trip with the nicest hotels, great food in local restaurants and guides who were very knowledgeable about every place we visited and who went above the call of duty to make our experience one of a kind.
Definitely would recommend Kuoda travels for your vacation ideas and plans.
