Machu Picchu Day Tour

The day tour was extremely well organised and planned . Hotel briefing took place the night before to prepare us. The local driver was amazing and friendly. Tour tickets were all sorted and prepared . If you want a hassle and stress free day don’t hesitate to book these tours . Can be quite overwhelming knowing what to book and who to trust if you leave it until the day you get to Cusco.

Great experience

My brother and I booked a trip for 8 days in Peru and it was the best! Oscar met us at the airport on our first day there and he was very kind and informative. All of the excursions were taken care of which really took ther stress out of the trip. We only had one issue when we got to Aguas Calientes but it was taken care of very quickly. Everyone we talked to was very helpful. Great company!

Great tour options

Found Karikuy tours through a Google search. Wanted to do a 2 day/1-night tour to Machu Picchu including some of the Inca trail up to Machu Picchu. Nice tour. Met Oscar in Cusco. Had a misunderstanding of PeruHop bus drop-off time and when Oscar would pick us up and where we were to go. The problem was that if we were going to have to pay an extra $15 per person to have a hostel hold our stuff, breakfast and shower, we should have been told this in advance. Booo. But we ended up meeting Oscar in the Plaza des Arms at 8:45am to start our tour. That was very nice. Plaza des Arms is really chill and nice. There is even a starbucks and KFC in the plaza. Our initial tour guide for the bus/mini-van was really nice. He explained a lot about the Sacred Valley and dropped us off in Ollanyatambo to catch the Peru Rail train to Machu Picchu city. He said someone would be waiting for us at the train station. Great tour guide in Machu Picchu named Piercy. The guy who ran the hotel front desk was waiting for us when we got off of the train from Ollyantambo to Machu Picchu. And he took us to the hotel. The Hotel Humantay was just enough. They watched the bags for free and had free breakfast. Hot water was spotty to non-existent. But walking down the Inca Trail from Machu Picchu was spectacular. I recommend taking the bus up to Machu Picchu and then walking down the trail. Unless you want to take the 2 hour walk up. Best to start at 4 am. So you don't melt from the sun.

Best trip ever!!

Several years ago I read an article about the Salkantay Trek and really wanted to do it. It was a last minute decision, but everything worked out really well. Our guide, Wellington, Cameron our hotel the night before to explain the trip to us. The entire trip was great. The guides were great, the cooks prepared excellent meals, the accommodations along the trek were sufficient. Our group was great, and we had a lot of fun. We will definitely return to Peru.

Thank You

Hi Claudia and Ana I just wanted to write to let you know how much my husband and I enjoyed our 4 day hike to Machu Picchu with Karikuy tours. In particular I would like to recognise and acknowledge the professionalism of Mario our tour guide. He truly is a lovely man. Very knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions. He helped me along the way of the hike, was always ready to take photos of us and is an absolute asset to your company. I would also like to thank you for always answering my questions before the tour and for the smooth ease of booking. The whole trip from beginning to end was excellent and ran very smoothly. I would definitely recommend Karikuy tours to anyone booking a trip to Peru. Thank you so much and please pass on our thanks again to Mario. He will forever be remembered by us, as will all the porters who worked so hard and always had a smile for us. Best wishes Julie Schurmann

Best tour ever. Oscar is the man

Super impressed with how professional everything was. Honestly best pricing and i would forsure do it again. My wife was extremely happy with everything. All i would say is when finding the tour after the train ride. She was a short cute women and it was a little hard to find the blue sign :) she was amazing though so just keep your eyes open for the sign :)

Highly recommend Karikuy Tours

We were extremely happy with our tour. Firstly the communication with you before we set off was excellent. Every time I had a question you replied immediately and explained everything clearly. During our Lares trek everything ran to clockwork - always transfers awaiting with our names. Our guide was amazing- he was very enthusiastic, informative and encouraged everyone. It was nice that we were a small group of four. The porters and cook were friendly and when we arrived at the camp sites the meals were ready, we’d bowls of hot water by our tents, we were awoken with cups of tea! The chef’s cooking was incredible- delicious and copious! The trek in itself was stunning. Breathtakingly beautiful scenery and no other trekkers. We did not want it to end! It was also good value for the amount we paid. We highly recommend Karikuy Tours Peru.

Amazing 4 day Jungle trek to Machu Picchu

An amazing trek started with a 70km bike ride down the mountain, “excellent” great for the thrill seekers followed by rafting which i was not sure of at first but once in the water was great we even fell out of the boat which only made our team more of a unit and more enthusiastic to continue. The next few days was trekking through the mountains and jungle eating fresh fruit from the trees and vine eg. Red banana, lima, orange and papaya also seeing pineapple coffee and cacao and coca growing wild. Once at the top of the mountain we visited monkey house seeing and tasting fresh cacao, honey, stevia, coffee etc. And having the chance to see capiso or coaty (the coffee was lovely) any a parrot. The 3rd day we zip lined ,rock climbing and bridge walk it was awesome. Last day we walked to aguas caliente via the train track brilliant lots to see on the way. My guide Paulo was amazing very helpful and accommodating i would recommend him to everyone, what a great guy He found some great places to stay and we had some lovely food where he took us .... Machu Picchu was amazing i was there for 7 hours. Tip : take your time there is no rush, if you get there early you may have the chance to see the clouds clearing this amazing wonder of the world.

Adventure in the Rainforest

What an amazing tour with Karikuy Tours. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. Our accommodations were very comfortable in beautiful surroundings. Our meals were delicious. We saw more animals than expected in the forest on the hikes and boat trips. We're in our mid 60's and were able to do everything on the tour. We would recommend the 5 day tour to Corto Maltes Amazonia Lodge to anyone interested in a jungle tour.

Amazing Experience

I did the 4 day Salkantay Trek to Machu Picchu and had the most amazing experience ever. Everything from lodging to meals was covered which is unbeatable for the cost, especially because I’m a fairly novice hiker/camper. Our guide, Julio, was helpful and informative the entire time and always kept the group informed. Make sure you prep for every possible weather condition as it can make or break your experience. Overall highly recommend to anyone

Satisfying Tour

There were awkward moments (touring Ollantaytambo ruins with luggage in tow and waiting hours for the train) but the accommodations in Machu Picchu and the private guide in the ruins more than made up for it. Don’t bother with the VisaDome option, unless you would like food and entertainment on the train, as the ride is mostly in dark.

Time of my life

I did the Inca trail and it was the most amazing trek of my life and I live in Alaska! I lost my phone the day before my trek, and all the guides and fellow travels were so helpful and amazing. Then sent me tons of pictures. I was the only female traveling alone and everyone took me under there wing. It was such an educational and motivating trek. The guides were very helpful. I already have plans to take my sister and brother in law in 2020!!

Great trek!

I did the 4 day Salkantay Trek and it was awesome. Willy, our guide, was great and made us all become friends along the way. He spoke Spanish, English, and Quechua. The accommodations and food got better every day. I went July 18-21. It was cold the first night and second day and then the weather got better. Great time of year to go and great company to go with! It's a tough trek, but so so worth it. 10/10 would recommend.

Machu Picchu (Full Day Tour)

My sister and I found Karikuy Tours through a random google search while trying to plan our long journey to Machu Picchu. I am so glad we did because they made the entire process easy and manageable. Additionally, if we had any questions or needed to make changes to our plans, they were available to answer our questions. We did the full day tour and had guides at every point. From being picked up at 3:30AM to taking the 2 hour tour through the Inca ruins. This was an experience like no other. I don't think we would have been able to get this all done if it were not for Karikuy Tours. Thank you for making this experience amazing!

Fantastic Salkantay trek!

Had a wonderful time on this trek, greatly appreciated all of the hard work done by our guides and chefs. Highly recommend!

Simply Wonderful!

It was such a great decision for me to choose Karikuy Tours for our Peru Trip! You guys rocks! You made our trip less stressful which gave us more opportunity to enjoy our trip – and we did thanks to you! I am very impressed Karikuy tours organizing our trip. Unlike past experiences from a tour operator which job apparently is completed after the payment was done – Karikuy was so different. They stayed with us along the way and made sure we received the services we were promised by them. Karikuy team was very thorough in planning. The very detailed itineraries, the trip snapshot from the time we get to Peru to the time we leave Peru. Overall, the trip was incredible and Karikuy Tours was simply wonderful! On behalf of my friends, thank you so much for making our first Peru trip so memorable, fun, exciting and definitely one for the books! To Karikuy Tours, Claudia and your fantastic team – thank you for making this possible! Yes, would love to see more of Peru!

Tour of Southern Peru including 5 Day Salkantay Trek

We originally enquired with Karikuy to arrange the Salkantay trek for us but ended up asking them to organise a trip which would take in all the places that we wanted to see in Southern Peru in the limited time we had available. They did an excellent job in putting the whole thing together and ensuring that we were met and picked up from a variety of places as needed. The quality and locations of the hotels they booked us in was excellent and on all aspects of the trip the guides were passionate and had excellent knowledge of the history, geography and flora and fauna. Our trip included Paracas, Balletas Islands, Huacachina, Cusco, Rainbow Mountain, Sacred Valley, Salkantay Trek, Arequipa, Colca Canyon and Lima

EcoMagic Amazon Forest

We booked with Karikuy tours a 3days/2 nights ecoMagic lodge in the Amazon Forest and it was one of the best part of our trip. The transport, the food, the accommodation, everything was of a great quality when you thing that you are in a middle of nowhere. The guide and the personnel were kind and helpful. The discovery of the fauna and the flora was incredible and well organized. We were a small group (10) so it was easy to interact with the guide and see everything. We highly recommend to go to the Amazon forest during your stay in Peru, this is an incredible unique experience! Thank you again Karikuy tours for the organization!
