I really enjoyed this trip to Peru. And thanks to you guys, you made it easier for me. I did it in just 5 days! It was crazy, I wouldn't make it without your help, advice, and timing! I totally recommend. I took the Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley tour with them, and the Titicaca lake (Uros islands) tour.
Julio and Karikuy were our boots on the ground planning a study abroad experience for seven students and myself. We had a unique itinerary and budget as we traversed the country. Karikuy made it the trip of a life time. They were always accessible and helpful as we traveled from sea level to over 4,000 meters and back down again from ocean to mountains to jungle. The jungle experience at the Inotawa Lodge was the unexpected highlight - completely off the grid and amazing everything from the food to the accommodations and everything in between. We will be back again!
I spent a lot of time and effort trying to find the perfect trek for a small group of three with an absolute time crunch. With the February restrictions on the Inca Trail, we ended up with the Salkantay as our option. From the get-go, we were provided with exceptional turnaround time on questions, and full transparency from Karikuy. When we met with the representative in Cusco the night before the trek began, everything took on a very real feel--by the end of day one, we knew that the choice we made couldn't have been better. Every portion of the trek for our group went flawlessly; the food was good, the sleeping conditions better than expected, and the Salkantay is full of breathtaking views. A company can make or break a trip like this, and thankfully not only did I have the best company and friends with me, but the guides were outstanding (Leo and Joel were outstanding). I will not hesitate to book through Karikuy again on my next venture in Peru.
We had an amazing time in Peru as Julio's team at Karikuy put together a perfect custom itinerary for us that included Cusco, an Inca Trail hike, Machu Picchu, and Huayna Picchu. We had no issues throughout our entire trip from the time we landed in Cusco until the afternoon we departed. All of our hotels were excellent and any transportation arrangements (cars, trains) were always on time.Special thanks to Oscar (our driver in Cusco), Jaime (our Cusco guide), and Neilo (our Inca trail and Machu Picchu guide) for their professionalism and service. It is clear that Karikuy works with the best local people to ensure that you have an amazing trip and memories to last a lifetime. We highly recommend using Karikuy for your trip to Peru and seeing the magical, mystical and breathtaking Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.
This was a wonderful experience, going from the tranquility of Lake Titicaca, then trekking up in the hills on the Salkantay Trek, before finishing at the wonder of Machu Picchu. The organisation was smooth & untroubled, and the hotels booked were good, in particular the one in Cusco which was beautiful. Our plans had to change along the trip & this change was accommodated without any problem.
My family, ie., me, my husband and daughter booked tour with Karikuy from August 17th to August 24th. This was the best trip we had and enjoyed our time in lima, cuzsco, machu picchu, sacred valley. They were prompt in providing transportation and friendly tour guides. I strongly recommend Karikuy tours and will not be disappointed. We heard about karikuy tours from a friend at work who had a group tour and they recommended to us. I called Julio couple of times while I was in Peru and he always answered me promptly. My daughter said she wants to go back to peru another time. Overall this is the best tour.
I booked my jungle trek with Karikuy tours without knowing much about them and I am very pleased with my decision! Julio was always very helpful and responded fast to my questions. Also, a guide was sent to my hostel to prep me for the trek and even offered to come back and explain for my friend who was arriving the next day. Also while I was in Cusco, I asked for a last minute tour of Sacred Valley and everything was set up for me in no time. I had an awesome adventure during the jungle trek and I do recommend it with Karikuy tours (with rafting and ziplining :D) because the prices are good and its a well organised trip. Was really worth it!
Had a great trip with karikuy tours during our family backpacking trip to Peru. They organised our nazca lines trip which was all excellent. I would have organised a lot more trips through them to save myself hassle if I had known how good they were.
Our tour with Karikuy was amazing! originally we were only going to book Machu Picchu jungle trek but decided to do a custom two week tour through Peru. Everything was perfect all the sights and cities we wanted to see were included and all our accommodation, transport and tours of local attractions. It made it so easy and was a nice break from having to organise everything ourselves. We basically showed up at each stop there was always a friendly tour guide waiting with good english. The price was fantastic and the accommodation was always clean and in a good location. Machu Picchu was the highlight we had an amazing tour guide and a nice small group. we had so much fun we wanted to do it over again when it had finished. Cannot recommend this agency highly enough.
Had a great time on my trip which included the tourist bus from Cuzco to Puno and a lake Titicaca cruise, followed by the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu. the whole tour was great, Guides to pick me up at all locations except where a bus was nearly 2 hours late, so I got a taxi and the fare was refunded the next day. I would recommend Karikuy tours to anyone.
Julio booked my trip to Corto Maltes Amazonia Jungle Lodge near Puerto Maldonado, Peru, and he made the process completely effortless for me. This was a relief, as I had tried to book the lodge myself for days with no luck. One phone call to Karikuy, and it was taken care of immediately! All I had to do was show up! I am so grateful to Julio and his team for the incredible vacation they were able to provide for me. It was a trip of a lifetime, and I have Karikuy to thank for it!
We booked our vacation with Karikuy without any clue around the service quality. Julio always responded very quickly to our questions. Our vacations started in Lima then we went to Ica, Nazca, Arequipa and finally Cuzco. We always had somebody waiting for us at the airport our the bus station. The hotels booked by Julio were clean and comfortable. We spend great time in Peru without being worried for hotel, pick up or visit...etc. Thank you Karikuy and Julio for everything!
We booked package 5d/4n in Corto Maltes Amazonia through Karikuy.It was really good choice to go with Karikuy. Everything was perfect. We would recommend to everyone to go with Karikuy they are one of the best!
My fiance and I booked this trek (over the Inca Trail) because it was the road less traveled by tourists. It was phenomenal! Our guides and horseman were simply the best and took care of everything. It was just us, the mountains, the locals and llamas. A dream. The hike is tough, but so worth it. We can't wait to go back and do another!
Choosing Karikuy was the best choice I could've made when visiting Peru. I was looking for an Andes adventure and Julio customized the perfect itinerary that included an Inca trek to Machu Picchu with mountain biking, hot springs and zip lining as well as amazing evening and city tours in Lima and Cusco. It was great meeting so many people in the different tour groups and all of the guides throughout the trip were very professional and a lot of fun as well. You can tell Julio only works with the best. The local families I stayed with on the jungle trek, mountain biking at 4k meters in the Andes and seeing Machu Picchu at sunrise are experiences I'll never forget. Thanks Karikuy!
