We had a fabulous time in Peru – it was really the highlight of our whole trip! Pilar was a wonderful guide and we felt very safe with our driver Juan. Our time in Machu Picchu was magical with two sunny days which was a bonus given the time of year we chose to visit. The hotels were magnificent, especially in the Sacred Valley and Cuzco! They were second to none. Everything from being met on our arrival in Lima until our departure from Lima at the end was outstanding.
The only criticism I would have at all was that the quality of accommodation in Argentina was not up to a similar standard. The hotel in Buenos Aires was ok but nothing special. Our city tour there was only a half day so a bit disappointing. Our guide up at Iguazu Falls was fantastic and went above and beyond to make sure that Robert was well taken care of given he was on crutches at the time. He also suggested we do the additional optional boat ride which was well worthwhile – he was very knowledgeable and a real character and made our day very enjoyable. The hotel in Iguazu Falls was again ok but more than a bit tired – we were housed in the older section that had not undergone renovation. Both hotels were clean and serviceable but really would class them both as a low 4 star.
We would definitely recommend Kuoda to any of our friends who might travel to Peru. We have travelled extensively and have had good, bad and indifferent experiences with tour operators – you are definitely one of the best!
