Everything provided by Kimkim Travel (through Peruvian Soul in Peru) was perfect. I had some nervousness about using an agency since I usually travel independently, but with my wife and my advancing age, and her mobility challenges, I decided it was the best option for a trip to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.

Everything provided by Kimkim Travel (through Peruvian Soul in Peru) was perfect. I had some nervousness about using an agency since I usually travel independently, but with my wife and my advancing age, and her mobility challenges, I decided it was the best option for a trip to the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. I was impressed with the attention we got, and the adaptation to our needs. First, communication, online and with whatsapp: Jesus must sleep at his keyboard, since every time I had a question, concern, or panic, he responded, usually within minutes, although occasionally when at night, it was the first thing in the morning. Likewise, Carlos, who handled airport pickups/dropoffs, and Julio, our personal guide for 4 days from Cusco to Machu Picchu and back, were equally responsive and helpful. Beyond communication, Julio was a font of knowledge, adapted the tour to our needs, attentive, and facilitated numerous accommodations for my wife that made our Machu Picchu experience possible. In Lima, we also enjoyed the services of Abraham for a few hours, and were pleased with his manner and helpfulness as well. The trip provided by Kimkim/Peruviansoul was well designed as a private conducted tour, very fairly priced, and conducted without a hitch. All the personnel were reliable and excellent. The hotels were great.

Hotel Reviews

Hotel Antigua Miraflores

Lima

The staff were helpful is so many ways, the breakfast was excellent, the location convenient, and the rooms comfortable. We were in two different rooms at the beginning and end of our stay in Peru. Our first room did have a serious problem with the bathtub-it flooded the entire bathroom when it drained, and it was hard to convey the urgency of the situation to the front desk.

It was a beautiful older facility which was immaculately restored

Casa Andina Standard Machu Picchu

Machu Picchu, Cusco

It was nice, excellent bathroom and hot water, comfortable beds, amazing view. Too bad we were only there for 10 hours, a short overnight. It was a comfortable short walking distance to the bus to Machu Picchu

Casa Andina Standard Cusco Plaza

Cusco

Very comfortable, good bathroom facilities, awesome breakfast. Only flaw was that staff in the early morning made noise in the courtyard which easily carried into the rooms and disturbed sleep.

A moderate walk to attractions, shops, and the main square
