self guided drive - Aug 26 - Sep 9, 2019

KimKim is a brilliant idea expertly executed. How to find the perfect in-country help for just the kind of travel you prefer? Ask KimKim. They put us in touch with Nicho and Diego at Peruvian Soul for our self-drive, self-guided trip in Peru. And while driving yourself in Peru is not recommended, we set out anyway to discover that it's true that the worst drivers in the world are Peruvian. But Nicho checked on us almost every day, and we did fine. At Machu Picchu, Peruvian Soul had arranged our tickets and Wilson, our guide. The experience could not have been better. Wilson was friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. Peg suffered from altitude sickness and had to miss some of the recomended highlights but got to know the towns a little better. Peruvian Soul gets 10 out of 10.

Hi Steve!
Thanks for the nice comments! It was a pleasure having you here and spending some time with you and Peggy! You are both great travelers!
I know our driving is "a bit" crazy but I'm sure you'll soon see we have some tough competitors for the "worst drivers award" in other parts of the globe hehe. Regardless you guys coped with the challenges pretty well and I hope the stunning views as you drove through the Andes were well worth the effort!
All the best from Peru,
