Excellent job Howdy! The guiding service you guys hired was outstanding. Can't remember the name of the agency. The head guide was Felipe. He was incredibly knowledgeable and a great leader. And the food - wow - I am totally amazed that they were able to do such an excellent job. Super good energy from the other porters too. I'll be back again.

Julio worked so hard to make sure that we not only got the experience we wanted, but that it was easy to book and at a fair price. Thank you Julio!

Enjoyed Inca Trail hike and Rainbow mountain hike . Karikuy Travels had made most of the arrangements during our stay at Cusco and during the hike. Love their guides, Willie at Cusco , Leo and Adolpho at Inca trail hike. The food served during our hike was delicious. We had amazing porters. But there are few concerns also: 1)Some of the communications were not clear ( for ex: we were told one porter can carry 23kg) but never mentioned that our rented sleeping bags were also included in that ) 2) The guide Emmanuel ( during rainbow mountain hike, he rarely checked on us and was asking the horse riders to jack up the price.( when we asked for a ride after hiking almost half way to the mountain) 3)The working conditions of the porters need to improve . Saw many porters carrying heavy luggage’s and had no hiking shoes. They were wearing some slippers.

I would recommend Karikuy Tours to anyone wanting to do the 4 day inca trail hike. They provide professional services, tours are well organized. The porters they provide are just super special carried out duffel bags without any hassles. the chef cooked some amazing Peruvian food. Leo our guide was amazing. Ensured that we were all taken care of , checking on us constantly. Adolfo was also amazing. Julio owner of Karikuy Tours was in constant touch with us. Answered all our questions before our trip was easily available to help us with good guidance and advice.and I forgot to mention Oscar in Cusco. He was great too.

The Inca trail is in the top three hikes I’ve ever done and that’s saying a lot as I’m a very avid hiker. Our guide (Filipe) was super knowledgeable, friendly and responsible. He took care of us very well and managed a rather diverse group of hikers with very little to a lot of experience. The porters were amazing and went above and beyond, carrying massive loads and preparing amazing meals each day. The only recommendation I can make is that the camping gear is not the best so bring a sleeping mat and warm sleeping bag as it gets very cold at night. If you are wanting to see Manchu Pichhu then this is the best way as the journey is more than the destination.

Karikuy organized a perfect tour from Cusco through the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu and back, was extremely available and clear in communication both on their website chat and in WhatsApp, and staff and tour guides were friendly and went above and beyond to personally escort me to each check in point or give clear instructions to get there. I felt like I was being taken care of by family.

We planned the Salkantay trail for 4 days from 14-17 july, only 3 weeks in advance. Although the permission tickets for Machu Picchu were limited by then, they gave us very good advice on how to best plan the trek. Very fast responses, kind people. The Salkantay trek itself was amazing!! The guide Alex Samanez was great, had good energy and took good care of the whole group. The camps we stayed were good and on very beautiful spots, the food was very good. The vegetarian food also. Would definitely recommend this agency!

Why is Karikuy not on TripAdvisor?

When Karikuy began in 2007 we had no idea what it would eventually become. With hard work and perseverance we were able to build a solid team to bring the incredible customer experiences with unbeatable customer support in our industry. But as the business grew so did the attention of our competitors.

In 2010 we had an immaculate TripAdvisor account and were the top of our industry promoting on Google and Bing. Our competition began employing black hat tactics to lower our rankings, they began trashing our TripAdvisor account to the point where we had to ask to have it closed up. We would later find out that we were not alone and many other smaller tour companies were being targeted by TripAdvisors own Viator for market share. We decided to no longer do any business with TripAdvisor.

Today you will still find some forum posts on TripAdvisor where customers have left some reviews, but at the same time they are heavily edited by TripAdvisors own staff which have removed favorable posts and left the negative ones. The internet is our witness however, and the lack of negative reviews outside of TripAdvisor is a testament to the dedication we have to our customers.

To separate ourselves from TripAdvisor we have partnered with Trustpilot, Google and Vocal Reference which now provide us with a platform to take direct Karikuy Reviews from our Customers. You can view most of our old Karikuy Reviews here. We are slowly importing them here to our new Review page. There are also several reviews added to our individual tours from customers who have traveled with us recently, you can view all our tours here.
