How did you get involved in travel?
"Being born and raised in Peru, a multicultural country, I learned to love each detail of my history and culture and all its diversity. I started traveling through Latin America and then went to other countries like United States and realized how much I loved traveling. I realized the most important part is the journey and the experiences and memories that stick with you for the rest of your life. I want to share what I know with others to organize a customized trip that is truly unforgettable."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I remember the first time I visited Machu Picchu. I had heard a lot about it and seen many pictures of the Inca citadel and I felt very excited about it. The whole experience was magical and filled with history. I went through the Sacred Valley of the Incas to then take the train in Ollantaytambo. The views were amazing and nothing like I had ever seen before. When I finally got to Machu Picchu, it was breathtaking. You can feel its energy and see one of the most important accomplishments of the Inca civilization."
Featured trips & expertise
Combine the Andean highlights of two diverse countries on this 11-day tour. Explore the Inca sites of Peru, including Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Then travel south by train through high Andean plains to spectacular Lake Titicaca, and cross into Bolivia to the unworldly Valley of the Moon, before exploring two contrasting capital cities: La Paz and Lima.
With one week in Peru you can explore one region in detail or take internal flights to enjoy the highlights of two regions. Southern Peru has an incredible diversity of landscapes, while the north boasts archaeological sites that rival Machu Picchu. The popular Cusco region is perfect for sightseers and trekkers alike, and the jungle is accessible enough to combine with a trip to the highlands.

Peru adventures, Peru - Jan 9 - Jan 14, 2018
My time on this hike was memorably concerning. The hike did not have enough guides. There were initially two guides and one person in the group paid for a private two day hike and so the second guide left the group. As a result there were five of us with one guide. Since I hiked at a slower pace than the others, the guide had to somehow make it work so that we all had support. Often times I was hiking several miles without any of my group members. This was quiet concerning -especially on... read more
Lima, sacred valley & machu picchu tour - 7 days, Peru - Feb 25 - Mar 3, 2018
I am so thankful to have used KimKim for my trip to Peru and have Stephanie as my local specialist. We had only 7 days to explore Lima, Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Pichu and Stephanie made it all fit perfectly. Every detail was figured out, which was such a relief because travel between these sites requires multiple forms of transport -- from arrival at the airport to departure from the trip we had train tickets or buses tickets or private drivers waiting for us at each leg. She made... read more
Peru and aguas calientes , Peru - Feb 12 - Feb 12, 2018
My husband and I just came back from our trip to Peru and it was amazing. Stephanie was great to work with and always went the extra mile in helping us out when we had last minute plans or changes. Although it was hard to get ahold of her in country, we were glad to meet her the first day and to be able to still communicate while on vacation some way or another.
Our transportation included terrific drivers, nice vehicles, and great views. The staff was on time and always helped us with our... read more

Thank you for arranging this amazing trip! We have a really big party so there were a lot of times we had to change the reservations but Stephanie really handled all the situations well which I feel really thankful.

Overall, it had been a fun and memorable trip. Thank you again for your help and also for the chocolate!
Journey through peru & bolivia, Peru - Jan 11 - Jan 11, 2018
Initial planning process was great - Stephanie was knowledgeable, assisting, and patient. However, the service "during" the trip was a bit inconvenient. Stephanie was hard to contact and in the moment we couldn't reach out to anyone, like the time we arrived at Uyuni but no one was there to pick us up, we waiting til 10 am local time Peru to call Stephanie, but still we couldn't reach her.
Other than that the trip was well organized with great guides in every stop. Especially our Macchu Picchu guide and Norma from Puno. Our Uyuni guides were great too.
One-day private guided tour of lima, peru, Peru - Nov 5 - Nov 5, 2017
Pickup was awkward - it wasn't Stephanie, it was someone else - and we should've thought that out better... it ended up costing us 25 minutes.
Hike inca trail, Peru - Aug 14 - Aug 18, 2017
It was the most amazing hike we ever did and Stephanie was of great help from the day we arrived in Cusco until the time we left. The hotels were really nice and all the people were very nice and friendly. One suggestion would be if you will be able to pair the hikers in the group based on abilities; our group was small and that was perfect. Thanks again for the wonderful trip!
Again, Stephanie went above and beyond to customized our trip based on our needs and she helped us from the time we arrived in Cusco until the day we left. Thanks Stephanie! It was a great pleasure to meet you!
