I have never used a travel tour company. Have always booked everything myself. Peru posed some big challenges in coordinating transport to the different areas we wanted to explore. I decided (reluctantly) to inquire with tour groups, two I found on tripadvisor, one I just called locally in the U.S. (the one in U.S. was worthless but thought I would give it a try) Both peruvian tour companies responded quickly. But what set Kuoda apart from the other is that when I told them what I wanted to do, they really worked with me and listened! I worked with Jesus in the office via emails and he came up with ideas for our itinerary that I would have never thought of! They also gave advice and information prior to the trip which was incredibly helpful for packing and being prepared! As stated in my title of this review, working with Kuoda was seamless! It made the trip almost stress free! We travel with our kids and we are vegetarian and my one kid has allergies. Everyplace we went to Kuoda had prepared them for our meals. We had tour guides for Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Sacred Valley, and finished our trip in the amazon at hacienda concepcion..all transport, many meals and tours were completely set up via Kuoda. Our guides were informative, professional and very caring and drivers were safe and punctual! We were lucky to have Ofelia – our tour guide for Machu Picchu/Sacred Valley and Cusco – she is so passionate, smart and totally gets traveling with kids! Mery has created a wonderful company to be very proud of – she helped escort us back to the airport as we were leaving for the Amazon. If you are thinking about travel to Peru and want an amazing unforgettable experience, look no further! Kuoda is worth every cent!!
