It is impossible for me to imagine living somewhere else than Peru! Peruvian delicious food, unique culture and fascinating history are part of me! And as a good cusqueñian, I am very proud to have the blood of Incas running through my veins!
I have lived and worked in the USA and made many friends there. Before that having worked on cruise ships in the past, gave me the opportunity to visit many places around the world too!
I traveled all around Peru from North to South and fall in love with it more and more, so I decided to settle in Cusco, my birthplace.
With all these life experiences I know the importance of quality services. I have discovered my passion for traveling and love helping others find their perfect journey.
My goal isn't just to design trips but to create a passion to travel in my homeland.
How did you get involved in travel?
"I started working at a young age in tourism while I was finalizing the university. I felt fascinated with all the stories my clients shared about their trips, and I wished to go abroad, so I decided to work and travel around the world! I didn’t hesitate when I had the chance to work on a cruise ship! After this amazing experience, I had this unique opportunity to work in the USA and went happily. There I made many friends and enjoyed my time. At my return from all my travels, I felt I needed to visit my homeland so I did and just fall in love all over again with Peru. I decided to settle down here and now I am happy to be able to help others with perfect and unique customized trips!"

Kimkim team has provided excellent service. A... · Peru - Mar 10 - Mar 15, 2020
Kimkim team has provided excellent service. All scheduled activities were in time, shared guided tours were well organized and well performed. Did not have any problems while visiting Peru. Thank you and special thanks to Liz / my coordinator, who put whole package together. She even brought me a Bday gift, which was very kind of her.
One week in Peru · Peru - Feb 8 - Feb 15, 2020
I want to give a lot of credit to the organizers of our trip. Everything went like clockwork. People picked us up and ferried us exactly when they said so. All our guides were so nice and very well informed about their culture and history. Magaly, Rony, Maria and Julio were all great. We loved all the hotels especially in Cusco at San Blas where they warmed our sheets with hot water bottles.
We packed a lot in in one week and everything we visited was awe inspiring. Nazca lines, Machu... read more
Wonderful Experience from our Trip to Peru · Peru - Dec 26 - Jan 1, 2020
My wife and I used Kimkim for our honeymoon to Peru. Their services, prices, availability of their staff and willingness to accommodate our travel arrangements were beyond wonderful. Booking our trip and mapping each stop, the length of the stay for each city, the mode of transportation through Peru, and the tickets for attractions and local flights was very easy and comprehensive. Across Peru, their team was friendly, on time, extremely knowledgeable about every site we visited and so very... read more
Great family trip to Peru! · Peru - Nov 22 - Dec 2, 2019
We used kimkim travel for a recent trip to Peru over 9 days. Our initial apprehension about planning a trip with 6 adults and 6 kids ( ages 3 through 10) was unnecessary, since Kristy and Liz took all our constraints into consideration, and helped put together a great plan for the group. We had a variety of places we wanted to visit - the rainforest, Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley, Lima, Cusco. Apart from international flights ( that we booked ourselves) and 2 days in Lima, they helped... read more
13 Day Peru trip was FANTASTIC! · Peru - Oct 29 - Nov 10, 2019
Our 13 day trip to Peru was fabulous! This is the first time I have used any kind of travel service and I will use one again. The activities planned were exactly what we wanted, the multiple, multiple transfers were seamless, the guides were wonderful, and the entire experience was great.
Liz made all the arrangements and the few times that I had questions she was available to answer. A welcome surprise that she arranged for us was a cooking class. That is not something I would have done on my own and it was fun and the food was fantastic.
I highly recommend Kimkim and Liz!!!
Peru · Peru - Aug 25 - Sep 1, 2019
Everything went like clockwork with our trip, no snags at all with all of the connections and transfers, etc. Our guides were all excellent and the recommended hotels were all excellent. We hope to return to Peru someday and will definitely be contacting Kimkim for our next trip.
Sue Considine - Invoice for Friends (Couple). · Peru - Aug 1 - Aug 5, 2019
Oscar was an outstanding guide for four days. Our itinerary originally included an early morning horseback ride to Rainbow Mountain. We just weren’t up for it mentally or physically and tried to get in touch with our KimKim representative by email but we’re unsuccessful. We did not realize that because it was a Sunday we needed to call. That should have been made clear to us.
Otherwise, all was great!
fly from lima to cusco, visit machu pichu in 4 nights, 4 days staying in nice hotelss · Peru - Aug 1 - Aug 6, 2019
Overall, it was a great experience.
I was particularly grateful for our guide Oscar, and regret that he was not our guide at Machu Puchu.
I now know that I would need 2 full days in Cusco BEFORE rainbow mountain and would plan more down time for recovery between tours. The schedule was too aggressive for me and my needs.
Trip to Peru · Peru - Jul 3 - Jul 17, 2019
The overall experience is ok,but I wonder if something urgent happens and I need some help,who should I turn to? There were several times I failed to contact the travel agent and when I turned to Kimkim I find the contact person and number is the same number I have and have failed to get in touch.Besides the quality of some local guides needs improving. Everyone seems to tell his own stories. We don’t know who to believe.
Trip to Peru · Peru - Jun 6 - Jun 22, 2019
Kimkim did a great job organizing an amazing Peru experience for my family of five and our extended family. We had children ranging from age 4 to 14 and they all had a great time seeing the classic Costa, Sierra, y Selva of Peru. All of our guides were knowledgeable and helpful. Alejandra in the Andean portion and Oscar in the Amazonian portion were especially fantastic! We had numerous family members joining and leaving at different times and the organizational team at Kimkim didn't miss... read more
