Very good service and will recommend.

Trip was good. Got to see many great sites in Peru, Machu Picchu was my favorite. We got to see the ruins at sunrise and wow, incredible. Karikuy is very good company and easy to book, price was even better. All services were good and customer service very good. We create our itinerary fast and easy and Karikuy send us price and information. Very good service and will recommend.


Hard to come by companies this well run...

I just got back from my trip to Machu Picchu and it was fantastic. The incredible scenery, the food, the people, what more could you ask for, Peru is an incredible country. From our arrival in Lima to our departure from Cusco we were made to feel at home, our guides were very warm and informative and anytime we had any questions Julio was just an email away with information and guidance. I travel a lot and it is hard to come by companies this well run, and it is only a small company and local which is great because we got a very good price overall. All I can say is you will not be disappointed. Thank so much Karikuy and Viva Peru!

Company with a huge heart...

Thank you for organizing this trip for me and my group, the experience was very enjoyable from booking to execution the guides were mostly on time, the hotels were great and the guides very informative. Our group enjoyed trying new foods and learning about the history of the areas we visited. Our itinerary was well planned and we got to visit the most we could in our 9 days in Peru. I am very grateful to have found this small company with a huge heart, thanks again for such a wonderful journey.

Best trip ever...

Traveled with a group of friends to Peru to do the Salkantay trek to Machu Picchu and what an adventure it was. This was one of the hardest treks I have ever done in my life but the scenery made it all worth the plane ticket alone. Karikuy is a great tour company and took care of us from the moment we arrived in Lima. Their guides are very friendly, some speak English better then other but there is no language barrier and they know what travelers want to see and do. Our guides even partied with us in Cusco after the trek! If you are undecided about traveling to Peru, go now! there is so much to see and do, did I mention the food is amazing! Best trip ever hands down.

Thank you Karikuy Tours

Memories to Last a Lifetime!

I booked a 4 day Jungle Inca trail tour for my parents, boyfriend and myself. It wasn't the tour we original had our hearts set on but Karikuy tours convinced me that we would not be disappoint and they were right! We had the most amazing adventure; cycling, hiking, rafting and zip-lining our way to Machu Pichhu. Our guide was wonderfully knowledgeable about the area and the ruins, he went above and beyond to make sure that we were safe and having a good time. The food on our tour was excellent! We always had enough to eat and got to enjoy some amazing Peruvian food. We were all so impressed by our tour and seeing other travelers along the way we knew we picked the best tour company. We will be sure to recommend this tour and our guide, Edgar to friends and family visiting Peru. A wonderful experience had by all and memories to last a lifetime!

Great Trip.

Just completed a great 10 day trip. Lima, Nasca, Arequipa, Puno, Cusco, Macchu Pichu - traveling alone but easily connected with a tour in each site. Pick-up and transfers worked seamlessly. Julio was quick to respond to my one phone call question and one email while I was there. Great trip. I'd recommend Karikuy highly.

Experience we will never forget!

Read some reviews online and was hesitant at first, but once I got in contact with Julio it was a breeze organizing my trip to Peru. Me and my GF Katie had a great time from visiting the Islas Ballestas and Lake Titicaca to Cusco and Machu Picchu. We recommend you also spend some time in Lima as the food is the best. Karikuy was very responsive to our requests when putting together the itinerary, we had a custom itinerary put together and were very pleasantly surprised by the price. We are recommending to all our friends and family back home. Thank you for an truly memorable experience we will never forget!

Karikuy is the #@$!...

Karikuy is the #@$! OMG so glad to have found them online, they did an awesome job at putting together an itinerary for me and my mates. We did the Jungle Inca Trail it was a crazy adventure all the way to Machu Picchu! Great guides, great food and company. Recommended to all my mates, you could not make a better choice! Thanks Julio and the team over at Karikuy!

Our Guides were Amazing...

Thank you so much to Karikuy. Julio helped us every step of the way for planning our trip and accommodate changes that we requested. Even when we were in Peru, he was able to answer any questions for us. Our family booked a 9 day tour which included tours of Lima, Nazca Lines, Ica/sand dunes, Cuzco, Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. All our tours provided us such great one on one service. There was always someone to meet us to pick us up from the various public transportation stations. We never had to worry about getting around town and visit all the amazing sites that Peru had to offer. Our guides were amazing and provided so much information about the Incan history. There was always time for us to spend time as a family and to explore on our own. Peru is an amazing country and the people so friendly. I wish we could have stayed long. Karikuy will be my first choice the next time we visit!!

Guides were fantastic

Hello Julio I hope you are doing well! I traveled with your company two years ago in August on the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. We had a wonderful time, and I wanted to say thank you again for your guidance. Your company is great, and the guides were fantastic. I attached a photo from our trek! This was from the first day.

..Unforgettable Experience.

Julio: today is the last day of our stay in Peru and I want to thank you for what you did to make this a unforgettable experience. From detailed itinerary to knowledgeable guides, friendly people who took care of our transfers, to accommodations that exceeded our expectations we are most grateful to your agency. We will certainly promote Karikuy Tours to anyone we know that might want a similar experience... Thanks again Julio.... Arie Van Seters & mark Heins... Ps special commendation to Percy our guide during 4 day Inca Trek.

..Exceeded our Expectations..

I was part of 'Seldom's' group and just returned to the USA. Karikuy tours provided a wonderful experience in Peru. Your guides were prompt and knowledgeable. Oscar met us with a smile, and we stayed at his wife's B & B where we were treated like family. All of the 'hostels' far exceeded our expectations both in warmth and hospitality.

The two days of touring in Cusco were very informative. I did feel that we did try to cram too much into those days--I understand that Peru has so much to offer and you want to share it all! The Inca trail guides were SUPERIOR! Valerie was organized and informative. Guido has such heart and was gently encouraging. After childbirth, I found the trail to be most challenging for me. Hector rescued our two fellow travelers who couldn't continue.

I appreciated how all tour guides were on time, friendly, and delivered all tickets and information necessary. A suggestion for Peru--take some of the fees from the trail and invest in composting toilets! The porters are a wonder too! The camp food was excellent and abundant. The trip to Puno was informative too. The floating islands were quite unique as was the cultural background. Great guide on that trip too. I had some trouble at the airport. Evidently one is not able to take fossils out of Peru. I bought one for my son and one for my grandson at one road market on our trip to Sacred Valley. I would have appreciated knowing we couldn't take them out of the country. The seller didn't tell me that. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed your country and people. Warmth and hospitality abounded. Thank you.

..Went Above and Beyond..

Joining a group tour is not our idea of seeing places because of lack of flexibility and would limit our interactions with the locals. The main purpose why we travel is not only to see places but also try to learn the country's culture, history and interact with the people. Julio Tello of Karikuy made it possible for us to achieve all these at a very reasonable price. Special thanks to Tarsis Ayala (Lima) who went above & beyond in guiding us to restaurants where the locals go. We very much enjoyed the food at La Buena Muerte Cevicheria & El Tio Mario Anticucheria. Also, many thanks to all the guides for their insightful knowledge shared to us. We will highly recommend your organization to everyone who's planning a trip to Peru. Muchas Gracias !

..An Amazing Adventure!

This tour was hands-down the best part of my (group of 7)'s visit to Peru. It was action packed, very well organized and the best part of it was our tour guide. Aurelio (I forget his last name but we did the tour from May 26-29). We did the Inca Jungle Tour. Aurelio was so patriotic, fun, excited, organized and caring. He led us around and we had complete trust/love for him. Thanks so much for an amazing adventure!

..Would not change a thing.

The trip of a Lifetime. Great service, great value and a great guide in Miguel. We were a small group and we had an absolute ball. The contact with the locals added to the experience. We packed a lot into our two weeks and I don't think we could have done better. Highlights were the train from Puno to Cusco and of course the Lares Trek. We climbed the stairs to Machu Picchu and our guide took us to a great spot to see the sunrise. A magical moment. We ascended Huayna Picchu which completed the experience. Glad we chose Karikuy and would not change a thing. Thanks to everyone for the blast!

..Super Helpful...

The Corto Maltes Amazonia was our adventure. Karikuy was super helpful seeing that everything went smoothly prior to the trip. The jungle adventures were great and our lodge was the perfect refuge after a day of strenuous hiking. We even had a beautiful parrot visitor. I highly recommend!

Great trip, great value, great service!

Great trip, great value, great service! I am very well-traveled but had never worked with a tour company before, so I cannot believe my great good fortune in finding Karikuy. I was traveling alone, and don’t speak Spanish. Julio listened to what I wanted, customized a tour for me at an incredibly reasonable price, and I was over-the-moon happy with the entire trip, which was 2 weeks. There were no snafus, it was seamless. I can’t wait for someone I know to go to Peru so I can recommend Karikuy to them. Go!!

I Totally Recommend.

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.
