Memorable Inca trail trek

I booked the 4 day 3 night Inca trail trek to Machu Pichu in January 2017 for August 2-17 for our family party of 5. Booking was easy and communications were good. We then realised we needed to get an earlier train back from Machu Pichu which was arranged no problem for a small additional charge. I then realised one digit of one of our party's passport number was incorrect, worried that this would invalidate the permit I informed Karikuy who said they could get it changed, for $20, which I paid immediately. After worrying for two months and an email saying that the change was delayed, I was informed it was done. This is a bit strange because when we arrived in Cusco the passport number was still wrong on the permit. Which in the end didn't matter. Not sure why I paid the extra $20!! Anyway we arrived in Cusco and met our guide, Mario, in our hotel the night before our trek and set off the following morning. The trek was fantastic, but hard work. Mario was great guide, informative, knowledgeable and patient. The meals and porters were also great (one night the tents were late because a porter had hurt his ankle and one of the evening meals was not up to the same standard as the others!). Mario made sure we were up and at the sun gate early on the final morning to get the full experience of seeing Machi Pichu for the first time. He also gave us a great tour of the site. The ruins we saw along the trek were also fascinating and Mario was very knowledgeable about all of them. My only complaint was that the tents we had were old, one with a broken zip and they did leak on the last night when we had rain - maybe time for some new ones! Overall an enjoyable, memorable and well organised trek.

Interesting trip in the Amazon

I used Karikuy to book our Amazon adventure at the end of our two week Peru trip. Everything worked as planned and we were picked up (and returned to) our hotel. We stayed in the Ecolodge which was lovely along with the wildlife. Meals were good and the excursions very interesting.

Karikuy made our trip planning easy!

We travelled to Macchu Picchu via Cusco for four days with help from Karikuy. We had already booked hotels and train tickets, but realized that figuring out other transportation, tickets to various sites, and tour guides was not as easy as we expected. When I reached out to Karikuy and explained what we needed help with, they understood immediately and figured it all out for us at a very reasonable price. It was only three weeks before our trip, but they jumped in right away. Everything went flawlessly. Drivers showed up on time and were easy to find, tour guides were informative and friendly, and all of the tickets were arranged for. My only minor surprise was that the timing for tours in Macchu Picchu ended up slightly different than we had agreed upon initially. It all worked out great in the end. I would recommend using Karikuy if you need the same type of help that we did. Claudia, who helped us arrange everything in advance, was particularly great to work with. She helped us figure out a complicated ticket situation and gracefully dealt with several changes we made to our itinerary!

Epic Peruvian Adventure

 I couldn't recommend Karikuy highly enough! From the research stage, to planning and booking tours, accomodation and activities Karikuy helped us at every step of the way! 

Even while we were in Peru Karikuy was working behind the scenes to ensure that our trip went to plan.

We were in Peru when the flooding tragedy recently began, and Karikuy had a back up travel plan ready for us, before we even knew there would be an issue on the roads we were travelling on.

Karikuy listened to the kind of trip we envisioned, and matched us with some really excellent local tour guides. 

Even during minor hiccups on our trip due to lost baggage and a quick trip to the medical centre to remove about half a sea urchin from my foot, Karikuy ensured our tour guides knew where we were and helped us get back on track.

You can really do all the research you want yourself, but there is no way to beat the local knowledge to be gained from the team at Karikuy.

Exploring Peru surpassed my expectations - not only because of the amazing people, history and vastly changing landscapes but  because Karikuy helped us plan such an epic holiday!

Hands down the best experience!

My boyfriend and I did the Jungle Adventure with Karikuy in March - BEST EVER! When I was looking up Machu Picchu treks I either found them way to expensive or not very fun. I also was really nervous doing 4 days of full trekking. Starting from the bike ride down the mountain, trekking, ziplining and everything in between it was amazing. Our tour guide JJ was really fun and very knowledgable. Food is great and they cater for vegetarians so my boyfriend didn't go starving. The hostels/homestays were great. I have and will continue to recommend this to everyone I know doing Machu Picchu Trek. 

Best Trip We've Ever Taken

My brother and I completed the Salkantay Trek between March 31st and April 4th. Our guide, Aurelio, was extremely friendly, knowledgeable about the area and the local culture, and fostered a great camaraderie among our group, which consisted of 17 people from five different countries. The food and accommodations were great given the environment, and the chefs did a phenomenal job mxing up the meals from day to day. Peru was the most beautiful country I've ever visited, and the Salkantay Trek allowed us to see a little bit of everything. I've already recommended to a friend and will surely be recommending this company to several more.

Awesome trip!! So glad I went with Karikuy!

I selected Karikuy Tours Peru for my Machu Picchu tour because of a number of reasons.  First, they had many tour options available.  Second the price was the best.  Now that I have completed the tour, I'm really glad I went with them!

The communications by Claudia Timana was outstanding!  She explained everything and very quickly answered all of my email questions. Also when I had a quick question, the online chat support was super helpful.  The accommodations were good. All of the employees at the hostels were very helpful and friendly.  The meals were amazing!  Everyone one of them. The meals were preordered and I ate things I normally would not order otherwise.  The tours were on time and arranged perfectly.

Finally, our tour guide Jimmy was so gracious and such a good guide.  He really knows his history and culture and was passionate about the Peruvian way of life.  They are proud people rich in history. 

Jimmy was awesome!!! 


Thanks Karikuy!   You made this the best trip yet. 


Peru was my 28th country to visit. So I have past tour experience to compare :)

Salkantay Trek 4 days


We trekked the Salkantay Trek with Karikuy Tours on the 19th to 22nd April 2017. Our guide Caesar met us promptly at our hotel the night before and explained everything in good English and we were picked up in the morning full of confidence. The company was really professional, Caesar was so great, caring and knowledgeable and the group number was only 15 with 9 nationalities. Weather was  fantastic and views amazingly class to the highest mountains and glaciers. We were not disappointed. The meals were incredible for the facilities.

We would not hesitate in recommending this company and this Trek.

Great Guides, Spectacular Scenery

I would recommended the Karikuy tours Salkantay trek to anyone who enjoys the great outdoors and hiking. You get to see the real Peru and many of its beautiful sights on this trek. It is challenging in parts but that makes it very rewarding at the end of each day. I'd say an average level of fitness would be fine to do this trek, as the guides are great and there is a one at the front of the group and one at the back, so if you want to take your time and soak up the sights and atmosphere then everyone is accommodated and can do it in their own time. In brief I would say it has great guides, spectacular scenery, and even good food provided along the way!

Sunrise Tour Package

My son and I did the sunrise machu picchu tour package in late January.  When you consider the logistics involved with all the different "moving parts" necessary to get us to and from Cusco, various pickups and deliveries, it was amazing that everything came off without a hitch.  From the guides through the sacred valley and machu picchu, to the hotel arrangements, and the pretravel checkins the night before each trek, things went flawlessly.  Thanks Karikuy and Oscars Adventures.

Unforgettable Trip

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing time doing the Eco Amazonia 3 Day Tour. Our guide Alex was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great experience. The food was delicious and freshly made, including fresh fruit grown in their self-sustaining ecosystem. The lodge itself is beautiful, and we loved our romantic cabin. Getting to feed monkeys by hand, as well as see all the animals via motor and paddle boat was an adventure we will never forget. I highly recommend this to anyone able to make the trip!

Experiencia inolvidable!

Queria agradecerles por el hermoso tour que ofrecen.

Desde el guia Percy, y los porteadores hemos pasado unos maravillos 4 dias de Aventura en el Inca Trail. Hemos aprendido muchisimo y capturado lugares de ensueno.

Flawless Trip

I wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with our Lares trek.  We really liked our guide, Vladimir.  He was informative, good natured and good company.  The cook, Nico, provided us with outstanding meals and was also good-natured and kind.  We liked the serenity of the Lares trek and decided that, in the end, that was the perfect trek for our group.  All the transfers were seamless and our hotel in Agua Calientes was beautiful and delightful. Vladimir gave us a wonderful and insightful tour of Machu Picchu.  In short, it was an amazing experience that went like clock-work.  Thank you for providing us with an extraordinary experience on our Mother/Daughter trip that we will remember for a lifetime.

Our trip was absolutely incredible.

We would like to thank Julio Cesar Tello at Karikuy for all of his assistance with the planning of our trip to Peru.


The whole trip was absolutely amazing.  All our guides and drivers were great and very helpful and informative, our travel connections were great and our overnight stays were delightful.


Our group chose the “Southern Circuit” and then customized it in order to see more points of interest we were interested in seeing. We were very pleased with the ability to customize our tour and see more than we thought we would be able to see.


We will definitely recommend Karikuy to others who are planning a trip to Peru.  Our trip was absolutely incredible.

Mi casa Es su casa!

Took care of all our needs

We loved our trip to Salkantay 5D/4N. We booked with Karikuy based on the testimonials. It was very well done and they took care of all our needs during the trip. Being a vegetarian on the trek was not a problem. Our guide Nilton was very knowledgeable, always positive, friendly and overall he was terrific. our group was also wonderful. Had a blast. We would be happy to recommend Karikuy to friends and family. Hope to come back and visit soon!

We loved our experience

My partner and I did the Inca Trail in May 2016. We booked with Karikuy and they were really prompt at replying to emails and gave detailed answers to our questions, no matter how many we asked! Karikuy also gave us a detailed guide to Peru, with tips as well as recommendations for hostels/restaurants. Whilst you do not walk the trail with Karikuy, they ensured that our tour was organised and met us beforehand to brief us which was really great. We loved our experience and would not hesitate to book through Karikuy again. Thanks!

Amazing journey that i will never ever forget!

We booked a customised tour with Karikuy with the Jungle Inka trail treck, followed by a tour to lake Titicaca and the Uros floating islands.

I was unsure at first because i had never heard of this tour company. After reading several reviews and watching a video someone had made of there Jungle Inka trek we were sold. When booking the tour it was such an easy process, with prompt responses and all questions asked - it was off to a great start. The jungle inka trail trek was a highlight of my life - it was the best tour we had ever done. We were lucky and got the best tour guide ever - Aurelio! He was full of knowledge and had passion for his job - after spending the 4 days with him, we didn't want to part with him and we all ended up crying when the tour ended - after such an amazing journey with him we felt lost when he left. Everything was perfect about this tour from the accommodation, the people, the adventures and the amazing food - i could not say one bad thing. My favorite part was staying in the house in the jungle where everything they fed us was off the land, they roasted there own coffee and even made there own chocolate. We were very lucky with our group size there were only 6 of us and we made up 4 of those people - so it felt very personal. Machu Picchu was incredible and the breathtaking views they would leave us speechless along the way. I would recommend this tour company to everyone and i would do it all over again in a heart beat! I would love to come back to Peru and explore more and we will defiantly be using Karikuy tours. Thank you for the amazing journey that i will never ever forget!

Thank you Julio - it was truly amazing! Words do not even explain how amazing this trip was.
