Pukina arranged our epic Bolivia trip. We covered La Paz city including riding the teleferico system, took day trips to lake Titicaca riding a reed boat, and Tiwanaku, and flew to Uyuni for the unbelievable stay at salt hotels and a multi-day journey from Salar de Uyuni to San Pedro de Atacama, Chile over the stunning Andes altiplano and Hito Cajon mountain pass in a multi-day off-road 4x4 expedition. Every expectation was completely beaten by Juan at La Paz at Pukina and his friends Luz and Nelson at Uyuni. We hope to return to Bolivia to see the other parts of the South American jewel.

Juan Carlos arranged the El Choro trek for us within a very short timeframe. We were very pleased that it could be organised so quickly (48 hours) and for what seemed to us a very competitive price.
Our guide was very nice and spoke good English. She hadn't walked the trail for some years but she knew her way sufficiently. The supporting entourage (porters and cook) were also very pleasant company.
Areas for improvement would include: disclosing factual information/knowledge of the trail and pointing out the flora and fauna whilst walking; the quality of the food was fine but basic; and the sanitary cleanliness of the first “camping” site we stayed in requires an upgrade.

We hired Juan Carlos and Pukina Travel for a 2 week adventure through Peru and Bolivia in November, 2023. The experience was outstanding! Juan Carlos and his team took very good care of us and the entire trip was private. We started off in Lima, went to Cusco, Machu Picchu, Puno (Peruvian side of Lake Titicaca), Copacabana (Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca), and ended in La Paz. Everything was wonderful!! Highly recommend! We had private transportation, drivers and guides the entire way. Lots to see and do in both countries and Pukina took care of all of the details. Go out there and explore!!

Had a very nice visit to tiwanaku ruins! Because of the pandemic and the lack of tourists it was a private tour in a very nice car.

Driver and guide (same man) spoke really good English and could inform us about the surroundings during the way to tiwanaku. At the sight his guidance and explanation was elaborate and on point. I would recommend the travel agency to everyone!

We attempted to summit Huyna Potosi with two guides from Pukina. The guides were great and made us feel comfortable at all times. They were great at explaining everything we needed to know and had plenty of experience. Sadly we didn't reach the summit due to heavy snowfall, but the guides were able to read the conditions and make educated decisions for the group. Would recommend to anyone adventurous!

We used Pukina to arrange a trip to isla del sol and tiwanaku ruins. Company was very flexible to custom tailor the trip for us in a private fashion. Our driver Guillermo and our guide Erika were excellent. Juan Carlos who arranged our trip was very good at communication, unlike some other Bolivian tour companies. Their prices are also reasonable. I can highly recommend this company.

We had a beautiful trip to Salar de Uyiuni with Pukina travel.
Everything was very welorganized. We went on a two day trip and saw so many wild animals, like Vicuñas and Flamencos.
We had very nice food on the trip, eventhoug we are vegetarians, they took good care of this.
My warmest recommendations for Pukina travel

Incredible, dedicated, reliable service. The owner Juan Carlos was directly involved in the planning of our trip. We visited four different “departamentos” (provinces)in Bolivia. They coordinated all air, land and water transportation. All hotels and hiking included. Everything was professionally handled. The price was very reasonable. Pick up and drop off at airports was on point. We will entrust any future travel to them without any doubt.

What an extraordinary adventure ! Me and my partner were recommended Pukina travel through Amazon Wildlife Peru, a family-oriented travel company that organises trips to Manu National Park in Peru. We were put in touch with Juan Carlos from Pukina travel and he immediately responded to all our questions and queries. Apart from most of the trips that start and finish in Uyuni, we wanted to travel to San Pedro de Atacama in Chile and Juan organised everything for us. He even met us in La Paz (although not necessary) to tell us more about our trip - what a kind gesture ! We travelled in a group of 6 and our drive Eusebio was excellent - a very honest and nice man. Few of our travellers had some problems because they were not able to come back to Uyuni due to a strike and subsequent road closure, however Eusebio tried his best to help them in order to get them to the airport for their flight. The scenery during our trip was incredible - so beautiful that it seemed unreal ! Highly recommend Pukina travel !

I was looking to visit ancient ruins of Tiwanaku and Puma Punku while staying in La Paz but for the security reasons I didn't feel doing that on my own. My hotel didn't offer any tour on the dates I needed, so I was referred to Pukina Travel by my friend and it was a good choice. I met Juan next day at my hotel and I had great experience and private guide for the entire day. The price was reasonable and included all transportation, admissions and even the delicious lunch at the local restaurant. Juan provided professional and safe service and I can recommend Pukina Travel to anybody who is in the La Paz area and needs private English speaking guide. Thank you for the great time I had. The whole experience was smooth, safe and I enjoyed every minute of it.
