TLDR: Just an overal amazing company and experience, they spoil you silly, already recomended the company to a family member. The company is just great. They worked amazing to make our trip completely seamless. From the moment we arrived to Peru, to the moment we left, there was not a minute we felt we were on our own and uncared for. Even in group activities, they were checking in with the guides, seeing how we were, checking in everything was going accoording to plan. As I said, seamless. Hotels, check, less than a 1 minute check-in. Transport, never waited, they were there where they said they would be, when they said they would be. Guides, well, wow. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly, fun to be with. I had read up a bit on Peru before traveling, they still knew all the tricky questions one has after reading up on history. Fun and attentive people. The places, we did a hike that was off the beaten path, it was unique, memorable, just the most amazing thing we saw. Before the trip they were in constant communication, the trip was tailored to exactly what we expected. During the trip, they were checkign up, any question we had was ansered and any advice given perfectly. We decided we wanted to see an extra site and it was accoomdated perfectly. Post trip, as well. Eager to know if we had comments and recomendations for them to be able to grow as a company for future travelers... Honestly, I was nitpicking at the tiniest of details to be able to give comments and recomendations on what they can improve, everything was just perfect and unforgetable.

My husband and I used Peruvian Soul through KimKim.com for our two-week Peru honeymoon, which included Lima, Sacred Valley, Cusco, and Tambopata in the Amazon. My overall takeaway: TAKE THIS TRIP. Here’s why: Peru has so much to offer. We had a new adventure every day. The people, culture, history, food, drinks, architecture, animals, views etc. are so fun to experience. We never felt unsafe, lost, or unprepared. The travel agency prepares you before the trip and we tried to be smart travelers anyway. Peruvian Soul, booked through kimkim.com, will make your trip so EASY and SPECIAL. The itinerary made for us by Anne based on what we wanted was perfect and we were given freedom to make changes as needed. The inter-country travel is all taken care of by the agency which is a huge help; i.e. you don’t have to buy separate tickets from Lima to Cusco to the Amazon – just your flight to Peru and back. We had private vans for transportation provided and private tour guides. We could have, but ended up not needing one taxi. All of the tour guides, especially Julio, are professional, extremely knowledgeable (trust me – we asked a lot of questions), and passionate. They knew all of the best photo-ops, every available bathroom, times in between bathrooms, and had good tips along the way like when we needed COVID masks, bug spray, extra water etc. COVID in Peru: up until we finally took our flight to Peru we were monitoring the COVID situation to make sure we were safe/eligible to travel. As of Sept 2021, the Peru govt. had a mask mandate in all public places including outdoors. All markets, restaurants, tourist stops were required to take visitor temperatures and give hand sanitizer out. These requirements really didn’t end up being big deal, and it was really nice having the peace of mind that we were being safe, and Peruvians were being safe. Peruvian Soul also coordinated an antigen test for us our last day in Peru so we could return to the U.S., which was also a huge help since we speak limited Spanish. All in all, you will not regret this trip and fall in love with Peru just like we did.

We were a little apprehensive to travel to Peru given the COVID situation, so we chose Peruvian Soul from the recommendation of a friend. They answered all our questions and concerns and tailor made our trip to our preferences and budget. Our guide, Guido, was a pleasure and so easy to converse with. He went out of his way to help us, even after we finished our tour and embarked on our own. His restaurant recommendations were amazing and we had some of the best food we have ever tasted. We had great hotels, seamless transfers, and great experiences. Peruvian Soul was transparent about cancellation and other fees if we had to cancel for COVID, but none of it materialized as everything went perfect.

We had the perfect trip. Everything was flawless. I have traveled extensively and Peruvian Soul made Peru one of my favorites. They were easily reached for all questions and coordinating all details. Our guide was outstanding and adjusted as we went along to tailor the trip to our preferences. For example, he was able to pick up on how we love food and gave us great recommendations. He was very knowledgable and made learning interesting. I felt we had a trip that really gave us the local experience with food, history, and sightseeing. We got to hike with llamas, ride horses, eat unique food, hike the Inca Trail, and way more. Peruvian Soul also gave us many unique non-touristy experiences along with the more popular sites. They were able to create an itinerary for the stuff we wanted to do and not necessarily just the regular tourist circuit in Cusco. We were nervous with COVID but everything went well without any complications. There are many tour agencies out there and we didn't know where to start and picked Peruvian Soul based on a recommendation from a friend. It was the best decision.

Where do I start! Saturday we arrived in Lima and Anne was there to greet us with a smile and information about our week long adventure in Peru. She gave us a great walking tour of Lima, introduced us to La Lucha for lunch, and made sure all our accommodations were set for the evening. The following day, we were off to Cusco, where Julio was there to meet us and begin a very active, informative, and flavorful few nights in Cusco and Aguas Calientes. his knowledge if the Inca culture was fascinating and engaging in conversation. He became instant family to us! Then we were off to Puerto Maldonado, where Gilbert was there to meet us and take us on our 2 day trip into the Amazon Rainforest. His genial manner and knowledge of his Amazonian backyard and community (Infierno) never ceased to impress us. He taught us how to catch piranha, and we caught 3 that day (took photos with, then released)! There is simply too much to write about regarding our specific trip. But here are a couple of things that really capture how much Peruvian Soul puts into the people they employ and the time and energy they put into making your trip memorable. Anne was exceptional for the inception, which was on-line chats in answering my initial questions, to doing follow up calls and video chats are out trip neared. She made us feel very welcome and safe once we arrived. She took care of any logistics that we needed, and her driver Eduardo was punctual, helpful, and professional. Julio was very caring during our time in Cusco/Aguas Calientes. My mom is 77, and he was very helpful to her and my sister in navigating the changing terrains of Machu Piccu, Ollantaytambo, and the salt terraces in the Sacred Valley. He literally offered his arm to help them balance, and in that, is now a member of our family! Gilbert never stopped looking for things for us to see in the Amazon Rainforest. On our last day, in the boat ride up the Tambopata River to get us to our flight, a small flock of Macaws flew over the river (our first sighting). He had our captain turn back. We approached where they landed in the trees to take photos. As close as we were, our photos were just "so-so." Gilbert asked for our camera, and in holding it in front of his binoculars, got us amazing photos to take home! I bought a platter made from the Huito tree, and he took the time to point out the tree in the Rainforest. He could have simply sat in the boat and talked to the captain as we exited from the Amazon, but he never stopped working to make our trip the most exceptional it could be. Gather this from my review: Peruvian Soul will make your trip as memorable as it can be. Their knowledge of their native land is fantastic, and the care they put into hiring exceptional people shines through in how great your guides are and how they take care of you!

Dear Tony, Thank you very much for your lovely review. We really enjoyed reading about your experience travelling with us, but above all your genuine appreciations about our team. We are a small team of diverse young souls with shared ideals committed not only to sharing the best of Peru with travelers from all around the globe, but creating a positive impact in our society and long-lasting relationships with our travelers. 😊 We knew this was a very special trip for you since you were travelling together with all your family after 15 years, so we were more than excited to plan something memorable for you! Thanks for your kind words for our team. Anne indeed has been taking care to the smallest detail, so everything went above your expectations. We’ll also retransmit your comments to Julio Cesar or Julito as we nicknamed him here at the office. He’s a fabulous guide and above all an excellent human being! We are also happy to hear you had a great time at the Amazon with Gilberto learning and discovering all about our flora and fauna. We cannot thank you enough for trusting us. You know this are rough times for the tourism industry in Peru, and having travelers back to our country fills us with satisfaction and encourages us to keep working hard, so more people can explore the soul of our country. Please say hello to Christina, Jason and Elsie. Hope everyone keeps the good memories and hope we can meet again, The Peruvian Soul Team
