Two couples, just returned home from Peru after spending two weeks in May through Kuoda Travel. It was a truly incredible and memorable adventure. We traveled to the Amazon, Cuzco/Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca and Lima. In Machu Picchu, we included a one day hike on the last leg of the Inca Trail and also the Wayna Picchu hike, both should not be missed.
The entire trip from start to finish was so fun and amazing. I had spent months reading tour books and on the internet researching where to go and searching for a tour company. We decided on peruvian owned and operated Kuoda Travel. Their reviews were great and in comparison shopping with group tours on other companies, customized tours through Kuoda were surprisingly similar in cost, a true value. I had never used customized travel before but found having private guides and transportation for our group of four completely and greatly enhanced our experience. We used their suggested itinerary (which covered the sites we most wanted to visit) and selected a combination of three and four star accommodations. Every day was filled with interesting locations and fascinating stops.
The tour really captured the beauty and diversity of Peru. All the guides were exceptional with special recognition to Edwin who was with us in Machu Picchu/Cuzco/Sacred Valley, a deeply knowledgeable, skilled, passionate and caring guide. The hotels were outstanding and in great locations and travel was seamless. Kuoda took care of all internal transports (flights,trains,buses) as well as entrance fees. Our Kuoda travel coordinator, Jesus Ramos, was so helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns and provided us with all the information and preparations necessary to make our travels a success. The founder of the company, Mery Calderon, surprised us with a visit in Cuzco just to check in and meet with us. Mery’s personal commitment to insure all aspects of our trip were perfect is very real. It was evident all Kuoda staff sincerely care their customers receive a warm Peruvian welcome and a meaningful and enjoyable trip. I have never before taken the time to write an online review but wanted to share this travel company gem. If anyone is considering a trip to Peru, do yourself a favor and contact Kuoda Travel.estrellas-calif
