Such an amazing experience! My boyfriend and I did the Salkantay tour in Jan 2019. We were worried about it being the rainy season but the weather cooperated, it only rained at night and on our last 3hrs on the way to Aguas Claiente. We totally recommend this tour company. Since the very beginning planing stages- they always respond right away, easy to get a hold of through email & Whats App, and they answered all my questions. We even had to change our entire tour last minute to another day due to a delay in our arrival to Cusco and they helped us with out ANY ISSUES! Couldn't thank them enough for accommodating us like that! Our tour guides ( Willey & Vidal) were super nice and knowledgeable. We would call ourselves " beginner hikers" One of them always patently stayed with us ( we were always last to arrive lol). The food was excellent! they gave us a lot too, we never went hungry. They always had our tent set up and ready for us ( I would rent their sleeping bag- It kept us very warm at night. Others who brought their own froze). Getting to matchu peachu is the cherry on top! Vidal took us two around the ruins and explained all the history to us. We also did the extra Huayna picchu climb and it was so worth it for the unique views. Over all everything was very smooth through out the entire trek! Would go again with the same tour company!!
We were most pleased with Karikuy Tours. Oscar Marin L. de G. Gerente of Oscar Adventure was most accommodating. He met us at our AirnB and briefed us on our itinerary for 3/21/19. He met us on that date at 5:30 am to take us to the train station. The train ride was great. I lost my camera and tickets when getting off the train. The young lady who met us arranged to get the bus tickets to Machu Picchu printed. At the train station PeruRail took care of reprinting the train and last bus ticket. I would highly recommend Karikuy Tours to anyone. Thank you. Charlie Kenny and Joe Tana Hyattsville MD USA and Cuenca Ecuador
We are a couple from New Zealand. We are traveling a lot and we found this company by chance on internet. From the moment we approached them we knew we were dealing with a well established and professional group. We had a very prompt communication, handy tips, personalized itinerary. We added more tours as we finally arrived to South America and this was not a problem at all. In fact we got discounts for using so many of the services. The prices are competitive and the service excellent . We would recommend and would most certainly use them again.
Thank you to Karikuy Tours and all their staff for giving us the experience of a lifetime. Communication was excellent and the food porter and guides were superb! We loved every moment of arduous hike and was the support and care from all the staff that made me push through some tough days. I would recommend Karikuy Tours to anyone who wishes to do the 4 day Inca Trail. We had a wonderful multicultural group who we are sure to keep I touch with. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Ana was very helpful in planning our trek. She was very quick to respond to my emails. Thank you for your assistance.
Good company for maachu picchu tour. Oscar came to my hostel the night before to go over the next days itinerary. There was a bit of confusion once I got to mauchu picchu but once they got it sorted out was fine. Oscar was great and i recommend them
Amazing trek, guides, food, and experience! Very thorough de-brief and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. Guides were great and let the group kind of facilitate pace and staying together or doing your own thing. I ended up joining another company (can't remember the name but yellow porters) so they may partner with other companies to coordinate based on availability and people booked.
We did a custom tour starting frim Lima of Laguna 69, Rainbow Mountain,Salkantay Trek, Machu Picchu, Huacachina and Paracas with Karikuy. Everything was very professional and well-organized. Highly recommended.
This hike and tour was such a blast! The hike, scenery and Machu Picchu all speak for themselves but Karikuy made arrangements to make sure everything went smoothly and that we had an enjoyable trip. Everyone on the hike from our guide, Mario, to the porters and the cook were super nice, great to talk to, cooked great meals and made sure we were safe. The camping equipment provided was good quality and exactly what was needed for this hike. Thanks for such an amazing time!
I had an absolutely incredible time on the Salkantay Trek! Between the landscapes, hot springs, Humantay Lake, ziplining, Salkantay Pass, Machu Picchu, and everything else, every day was amazing. My only complaint is that we weren't fed more.
