Miski Travels

Miski Travels started off as a passion project that quickly evolved into a new way of experiencing Peru. We want everyone we meet to experience the Peru we fell in love with- the culture, the people, and the destinations.

We don't want you to just visit Peru, we want you to experience it. We've traveled throughout the country to make sure we only recommend the best. Apart from only wanting to recommend the best, we also strive on being a responsible travel company. Working with the locals, giving back as much as we can, and adding our little grain of salt in helping this beautiful country evolve and maintain its charm.

The highlight of our trip was our guide for Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley and Cusco. Flor was an amazing guide-knowledgeable, resourceful, accommodating, considerate, and fun! Without a doubt she made our trip an experience of a lifetime! I have already recommended Kimkim to family and friends planning adventures around the world!

Well designed, good location, and excellent service. I had a lot of nice touches, like a spontaneous upgrade I didn’t request, the lobby holding my bag for me while I stayed a night at Machu Picchu, and all around lovely hospitality. Only note is the acoustics are about what you might expect of older construction— you can hear people walking around pretty clearly. Truly charming hotel though.

Atoq San Blas Hotel
Cusco

The hotel was meticulously clean and the hospitality was top rated. We looked forward to the excellent breakfast service each morning. The hotel concierge ran down to the main boulevard twice to bring our luggage up the hill and all the stairs which was amazing. We felt at home and so well taken care of during our stay. The views from the hotel of Cusco were breathtaking.

Amazing and picture perfect views of Machu Picchu. Every picture was perfect. Best to see the citadel first before climbing Huayna Picchu so the fog can lift and you can get a spectacular view of the citadel from Huayna Picchu. The climb is tough but doable and watch out for the nasty mosquitos. Sonya was engaging and thorough in the history of the ancient Incan empire and Machu Picchu which added to the experience. Sonya guided us away from the crowded touristy spots to enjoy some of the quieter sites.

Jaime was so kind and kept everything in order and expectations managed for the trip through Parachas and Ica.

Edwin in Cusco and the Inca trail and Machu Picchu I really cannot say enough. His knowledge of Incan history and his capacity to tell it through a captivating story was priceless. He clearly loves his job and feels passionate about his work. He was so supportive of my kids (12 and 16) throughout and kept them in mind- captured their attention and made all of the trekking doable. 5 stars.

The Mountain View experience in Maras in the sacred valley was a once in a lifetime experience. A hidden gem. So glad we had this adventure up there.

The river rafting, rock climbing and zip lining were incredible. So much fun for the whole family and all of the guides were so kind and supportive. Both of the adventure companies were amazing - top rate.

The only improvement I would make would be the hotel in Urubamba. The hotel was a bit removed from town and out dated. Not a big deal - just some feedback. I wish we had had a chance to stay in Oyantaytambo. Next time!

At same time I did not want to plan the trip myself and go to an unfamiliar country with an unfamiliar language by myself. With Kim Kim's custom feature you have the freedom to change your trip however you please.
In my case my local expert was Johanna from Miski Travel and it was a pleasure to work with this agency. I started my trip plan very last minute about 3 weeks prior to our departure. Johanna and her team were very patient with me and we made changes until few days before our trip. We even missed our flight from Lima to Cusco and had to change our Airport pick up just 1 hour before and they were helpful in rearranging our ride. We also had a very nice tour guide Edwin who even travelled with us from Cusco all the way to Agua Calientes where Machu Picchu is which was very reassuring and made us very comfortable travelling to another city.
Overall, I had a very good trip and it was a good idea to work with Kim Kim and Miski travel. If I had to mention an improvement I would have liked to see the breakdown on pricing. We were only given a total price per person, but I wanted to see what I was paying for. Other than that I had an awesome time!

* During our trip, one of the cities we were supposed to visit had their airport close for an entire week. Johanna and her counterpart Kristy responded quickly to update our trip. Additionally, because the updated itinerary was cheaper, they quickly processed a refund for us.
* Also during the trip, I tested positive for Covid. Johanna called us directly and helped us understand our options in an honest but incredibly helpful manner.

The PeruRail train ride to Lake Titicaca was memorable as well as the visit to Floating island and Taquile island.
Most of our tours were private except the Colca Canyon tour to see the Andean condors. The group tour guide, Luis Angel was very fluent in English and has sense of humor. He explained the history by telling stories.
Dalia, the agent for domestic flights was very helpful and thoughtful, checking in every flight for us and emailing us the boarding passes. We really appreciate it since we did not have internet access all the time.
We loved the stay at Casa Andina Premium Valle Sagrado, Sacred Valley and Colca Lodge Spa & Hot Springs, Colca Valley. Both have beautiful breath taking views and extremely peaceful atmosphere.
The entire trip was smooth, never have to worry about picking us up at the airport or hotel except on return to Lima. However, Johanna took care of the issue right away. Kristy, the owner of Miski travel also contacted us, made us feel safe and satisfied.
I'm very grateful to Johanna, Kristy and their team, tour operators and tour guides for our amazing trip in Peru! Thank you Kimkim .

When we initially thought of a trip we were considering booking everything separately and trying to do it ourselves but the logistics proved too difficult.

The first section of our trip was to the Amazon this was an amazing experience and the accommodation was superb. We then travel to Cusco for the inca trail. Our guide Edwin was fantastic and was so helpful and knowledgeable and really gave us a feel for inca life. He supported us on our trek as some of our group was struggling and made sure we arrived at all the checkpoints on time.
All the flights and transfers were on time.
Overall I am very glad we booked with Kimkim a 5 star service.

The ecolodge in the rainforest was all-inclusive and pampered us, as well as took us on many tours and etc that were great, although our particular guide (Hugo) didn't speak English super well and was also kind of uh... boring, so I felt there could have been some improvement there.

Another great arrangement by Kim Kim.🙂 We encountered a small change in our travel plans and received a small cash refund, before we even left Peru!

During the trip, my friend and I truly felt like we were VIP. When we arrived at each destination, there would be someone waiting for us to take us to our hotel. It was completely stress-free! The majority of the tours were private, meaning my friend and I could ask all the questions we wanted. We felt like we got the most out of each experience. The tour guides were so friendly and passionate about the history behind each sight or destination.

He has a great fun loving personality for a tour guide. He will teach you how to make a Pisco Sour and Ceviche, tour a market and have lunch with a great view of the ocean. Other tour guides in Equador and Peru seemed to want to tell us lots of details about each city, suburbs, and counties. Things like population and square meters. I'm not sure maybe they need to know such information to pass their Tour Guide Exam. We finally mentioned to one that we were more interested in learning about the culture, history, flora, and fauna. The tour got a little more interesting at that point.
