Highly recommend Kristy and team - Apr 3 - Apr 7, 2022

I am so glad that we found Kristy through kimkim. From the beginning, Kristy has been extremely helpful and patient as she answered all of our questions about a trip to Peru. Clearly, she has a lot of knowledge about the country. She was always trying to get us the best experience within our budget and came up with various options for us.

I am so glad that we found Kristy through kimkim. From the beginning, Kristy has been extremely helpful and patient as she answered all of our questions about a trip to Peru. Clearly, she has a lot of knowledge about the country. She was always trying to get us the best experience within our budget and came up with various options for us. Whenever there was a curve ball (postponement due to Omicron variant, transportation strikes in Peru), Kristy and team were prepared to adjust things as needed. We are very thankful for the peace of mind and security we were able to get knowing that we were relying on experts on the ground and didn't have to worry about going to a new country where we barely spoke the language. Special shout-out to Cesar in Cusco who was an amazing guide for us. This team always went above and beyond what we expected from them. Fully deserved 5-stars.

Machu Picchu Excursion: from Aguas Calientes - Machu Picchu - Cusco

Aguas Calientes/ Machu Picchu

Overall Rating
Activity Review

Machu Picchu was the dream destination in Peru. Kristy and team made it work for us in spite of having to change tickets at the very last minute due to circumstances beyond our control. We ended up doing a day-trip to Machu Picchu from Cusco. Our local guide, Cesar, made sure that the day was as comfortable as possible and allowed us enough time there to enjoy the unique beauty and history of the place.

Transport

Transportation was taken care of by our guides and was as comfortable as possible.
Guides, drivers and staff

Extremely helpful guides and staff who were patient and gave us our time and space to enjoy the experience.
Quality of Experience

There's a reason Machu Picchu is one of the seven modern wonders of the world!
