We had an amazing trip. Fran and Kristy from Kim Kim were both amazing to work with from start to finish. Fran put this trip together for us last minute and really helped me make decisions on what places we should visit for the time frame, and what would be right for our family. The hotels that we stayed in were beautiful, safe and well-located. Fran went above and beyond, helping us book great restaurant reservations for our time in Cusco and Lima. Everything was 5 stars.

We enjoyed our guide Brian who took us from Arequipa to Colca Canyon to see the condors. We loved hearing about his life in Arequipa and we found we had a shared love of music and it made the long drive so fun to share our favorite songs.

As for our time in Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco, we feel like we were so lucky to spend all of that time with our guide Claudio from Cusi Travel. The continuity that we had with Claudio as we traveled over 4 days to a multitude of locations was irreplaceable. Being with a private guide for just our family afforded our daughters to feel comfortable asking questions, using their Spanish skills, and getting a bigger overhead view of the Inca history of the area. Claudio did a fantastic job gathering us for family photos, and telling relatable stories about the area, so we could understand it more deeply. He was kind, patient, organized, helpful, thoughtful and went above and beyond in helping us alter our train ticket and departure time from Machu Picchu. His advice for the day we were not with him and we entered Machu Picchu on our own to hike Huana Picchu was spot on and really added to making our time there absolutely perfect. We loved that we did the Circuit #2 with Claudio in the late afternoon, when it was less crowded and the sunset light was amazing for pictures, followed by getting up early on our own and being the first people to start the hike up the mountain. We were able to get photos alone with our family before a lot of people got up there.

We loved the food tour in Lima with Sylvia and Lima Gourmet. SOOOOO much amazing food. One note for people going in the future. You really don't need to have any breakfast if you want to be able to enjoy all the food you are served during the tour.

This is the first time using Kim Kim, and I was nervous about the cost and whether it was all going to work out, but I have come away from the experience very ready to recommend KimKim to other friends planning international travel. At multiple times we had to make small changes to our itinerary due to plane issues, and missed flights and someone always replied in the chat immediately. Thank you for helping us with an amazing family trip we will never forget.

Gorgeous hotel. Our one complaint, which wasn't their fault, was that there was an event happening at a neighboring hotel or resort that had music and a person on a VERY loud speaker from about 6 pm to after midnight. It DOMINATED the whole resort and it was totally counter to the serene vibe they have going. We wish the planetarium was in service, because it sounds like that would have been a super cool feature. We enjoyed the breakfasts very much, and also got food at the bar one evening, which was very easy and simple. Our daughter really enjoyed getting to pet and take pictures with the baby alpacas.

The team at Refugio Amazonas was fantastic. Our guide, Luis, was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and found us so many cool things to see! The food was delicious, and our room was very peaceful and comfortable.

Cusi Travel took great care of us in Cusco, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu. Edwin and Flor were our guides and Donato was our driver. They really went out of their way to make sure we had the best possible experience. We can't say enough good things about them!

We did the via ferata and zip line at SkyLodge in the Sacred Valley. That was a big highlight for our teenage son. Americo, Brian, and David and the rest of the SkyLodge team did a great job, and we had a blast.

The 2 day Inca Trail with Flor was so amazing. We had such an amazing time at Machu Picchu, and I'm completely convinced that Flor is the best guide there is.

The accomodations Johanna picked out for us were all wonderful. Using Kimkim really makes traveling so much easier!

It is absolutely great and unique hotel with their own pier when you catch a boat to travel along lake Tikikaka. Free breakfast exceeds any your expectation, they have everything what you can wish . large rooms, excellent showers, coffee makers and many other useful stuff.

Really enjoyed the trip to Bolivia and Chile. Jimena Santos was an amazing tour guide in Bolivia!!! All the drivers were good, and we felt safe riding in all the vehicles. My favorite part of the trip was Uyuni and the salt flats. Hotel de Sal Luna Salada was quite an experience. The only negative thing about Hotel de Sal Luna Salada was that the dinners were horrible. They really need a new chef there. Read more

We have had a fabulous first experience with KimKim. Our guide Fran helped us plan the perfect trip and found hotels that suited exactly what we were looking for. She also helped with local tips on things like clothing and safety which was really helpful to hear from someone who really knows the country. From the moment we landed we were greeted with a lovely and friendly driver, and in Lima we had a great balance of fantastic guide called Jimena for our food tour, as well as time by ourselves to explore Baranco. Jimena was so friendly and helped us to experience the amazing food that Lima had to offer. They accommodated me well as a vegetarian and I really enjoyed everything we tried. We then went onto Cusco where we met our fabulous driver Alex and lovely guide Flor. Both were friendly and made us feel very safe. Flor was also like a personal photographer and seemed well known and liked by all the other local nature reserve staff and more. She was so knowledgeable on the history of Peru and the sites we visited and helped us with every question we had. Machu Picchu was an amazing experience with Flor and we felt really lucky having her as our guide. Other people nearby commented that they were jealous of us having such a good guide! Finally we went to Arequipa where we landed late and were met by Maya and Gonzalo. Both were also so friendly and kind. Maya became like a friend to us and we even saw her for lunch on her day off! They took us to the beautiful Colca Canyon and helped us with various issues like altitude sickness and travellers stomach issues (as did Flor!). We can’t fault our trip, it was spectacular. I only wish we had even more days to enjoy it all! All our hotels, food, visits and everything were amazing. Lots of little touches like travelling first class on Peru Rail we’re unexpected delights on our trip too. Thanks so much Fran, Kristy and all of the amazing staff we met along the way, we were delighted to be supporting local businesses as well as benefiting from their amazing expertise.

Our best hotel in Peru, we wish we had more time to enjoy this amazing place. We were greeted by Frank who went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful room ready for us with hot tea, hot water bottles and more, and Miguel who was so friendly and fantastic at breakfast. Amazing place and beautiful building

Wonderful views and amazing location! Can’t beat it. Lovely friendly front desk staff who helped us out with every question we had. The only improvement I’d recommend is slightly faster service on food. We allowed 30-45 mins for breakfast but found this wasn’t enough for us to order food and we had to skip this to make sure we weren’t late for our guide

Amazing views, totally unexpected. We loved the mini hike and seeing the flight of the condors

Amazing views, convenient stops along the way
Food
Some of the tourist buffet stops were great for trying a whole mix of foods, but didn’t feel as authentic as some local restaurants. I’m sure in some of these places there aren’t so many options but our favourite things were local stops where we felt more immersed in the culture rather than getting out with loads of other tourists

The mountain lodge was incredible, an unexpected and totally unique and beautiful experience which felt really fancy, remote and amazing. Food was delicious and the experience of seeing great llamas and alpacas outside (and occasionally trying to get in!) was amazing.

We loved hearing about the history in Cusco and just outside the city centre, but would have liked more time to also explore the life in the city itself. Perhaps the tour could have included more of the local streets etc in the city centre, or had more free time between the tour and the flight transfer to enjoy walking around a little more.
