Kuoda Travel far exceeded all our expectations – They deserve 6 stars! From the communication with Urpi to arrange our tour of Peru to our 5 days visiting the Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, everything went perfectly. Our initial reason for choosing Kuoda was their eagerness to customize the tour to fit our needs and this flexibility was in evidence throughout our stay – while the final agreed-upon plans were executed flawlessly.
Our guide Jimmy and driver Ruben were always helpful, informative and accommodating. Every day was full of interesting and exciting activities and Jimmy’s welcoming and humorous style made us feel special and well cared for. We learned and experienced SO much more than we would have from a group tour – especially the chance to visit the local people in some small mountain towns.
The crowning touch actually happened one morning after our tour with Kuoda had ended. The driver (at another company) who was supposed to take us to the bus from Cusco to Puno never showed up and we were left scrambling. We called Kuoda to ask for suggestions and the owner Mery made a personal visit to our hotel to make sure things were straightened out. We were amazed. What warmth, hospitality and service!
Now we’re trying to think of a reason to visit Peru again so we can tour with Kuoda. Yes, they’re a bit more expensive than some “canned” tours but OH SO worth it.
