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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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!!
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.
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!
Had a wonderful time on this trek, greatly appreciated all of the hard work done by our guides and chefs. Highly recommend!
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!
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
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!
The rainbow mountain view is breathtaking. We were a little bit worried of the elevation (5036m over the sea level) but our guide was great and help everyone going to the top. There is also horses available from local people to help tired climbers. Everything was well organized and breakfast/lunch were included. I recommend Karikuy tours for the rainbow mountain visit.
The two days tours Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu was great. Everything was organized for us and well explained. Furthermore it is all included (Bus to Sacred Valley/ bus Aguas Calientes-Machu Picchu/train/entrance). All of our guides were great and speak a good english. It was really easy and quick to contact Karikuy for any questions we had. Overall we had a great time visiting the Sacred Valley and the Machu Picchu organized by Karikuy Tours
Our tour guide, Elias, was professional, educational and had a wonderful sense of humor. The trek was organized, the views were incredible and the food that was provided was better than the restaurants and/or street food at both Machu Picchu City and Cusco. This was the highlight of my trip. My partner loved it so much with this company, he has now gone twice on the trek. I recommend this to anyone!
Our amazing guide Mario led 5 of us on an incredible Inca Trail adventure. The scenery, flora & birds were simply stunning & Mario answered our endless questions with patience & knowledge. The food, equipment & porters all exceeded our expectations, & I would thoroughly recommend Karikuy Tours. Thank you for a fabulous memorable trek.
Muchas gracias por su servicio Karikuy también la persona que nos tocó como guía muy buena persona recuerdo que se llama Oscar el llegaba a tiempo y se sentía una persona confiable, gracias a Dios todo salió como nosotros lo esperábamos
Amazing 5star experience. The amazon was interesting and beautiful. The food was delicious the accommodation was lovely and the people were amazing! It was really well planned from beginner by to end would recommend inkaterra to anyone considering a trip to Peru!
My fiance and I completed the 4 day Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu and was it great!!!! I'm so glad we decided to hike this instead of the easy route of taking the bus. The trek was a little challenging, but so rewarding and worth it. Mario who was our trail guide was very informative and if we had any questions about anything he answered them. I asked questions about some of the Flora along the trail and he would tell me the local name of it and if it was used for something. The Porter's were friendly and the food hit the spot after hours of hiking. Would recommend.
Last week I done the 5 day Salkantay trek, one of the most challenging but incredible experiences I have had. There is a nice variety of mountain, lakes, jungle landscapes and the views are unbelievable. After taking part in many other tours with other tour companies whilst travelling Peru I can honestly say that what made this trek better than all of the others is the tour guide and the team. Thank you to Damien the cook and the porters who fed us delicious food and took care of us. But the biggest thank you goes to our amazing tour guide Elias, with his knowledge and passion for his work and the great outdoors, he made every moment interesting and fun. Being thrown out of my comfort zone can always be scary especially in another country but I always felt safe and supported when Elias was there. Thank you for making this trip so special.
