    When we booked this tour with Gabriel we didn’t really know what to expect because it was our first day in Cusco. However, it was such a lovely experience that we will never forget. We feel like we got a special taste of Cusco that we never would have gotten otherwise. The horses were so beautifully behaved, the views were unreal, and Gabriel’s knowledge of the area and of the history was priceless. Not to mention the fact that we got our own private tour just by luck because the other tourists called sick at the last minute. We are sooo grateful for Gabriel’s kindness and willingness to go above and beyond. Highly recommend!!!!

    I just returned from a remarkable trip to Peru, organized by Valencia Travel. As part of my 40th birthday I wanted to take a trip to my Peru with my husband and two close friends. I started the process of looking for a tour company last year. From the very beginning Valencia Travel stood out. Their sales representative, Maria Diaz was incredibly responsive, answered all my questions and helped me plan an amazing 8 day private tour to Peru. From the minute we landed in Lima, Valencia's team was with us every step of the way. The tour was incredibly personalized and every single person we interacted with made us feel like family. They also booked us great hotels and phenomenal restaurants.

    We spent two days in Lima and the Lima team of Melissa (our main contact in Lima), Manuel and Cesar (our drivers), and Miguel (our tour guide) were nothing short of incredible. Everyone was extremely punctual and their passion and love for their country was incredible. We fell in love with the city and learned so much in the process. We had a half day Lima tour and we were very impressed by the depth of Miguel's knowledge. He infused humor throughout his tour and the tour was done in a way was incredibly friendly and accessible to us. We felt like we were with a dear friend the entire time. Manuel our driver picked us up at 4:20am to take us to the aiport for our trip to Cusco and the Sacred Valley. He ensured we had everything we needed and walked us right up to the security check point.

    We then spent 4 days in the Sacred Valley and explored Ollantaytambo, Chinchero, Maras, Moray, Pisac, The Potato Park, Machu Picchu and Cusco. During this time our guide Rene and our drivers (Ronald for the majority of the time and two other driver's whose name's I unfortunately forgot) were phenomenal. Rene's passion for the area, the culture, the history and the food was evident. He treated us like family and always greeted with a warm and friendly "Dear Family" every time he addressed us. At times we forgot we were on a tour and felt like we were visiting with a family member or dear friend. He always listened to what we wanted to do and worked with us to determine what made the most sense given how we were feeling and what our interests were. His knowledge of the region was impressive and he often shared personal experiences of growing up in the area. He was always on time and checked in on us even after the tour portion of the day had ended. We always felt safe and secure. On our last day, Miguel Cuba picked us up at 4am and took us to the airport also ensuring we had everything we needed.

    Overall we could not have asked for a better experience to Peru. This trip stands out as one of the best trips we have ever taken and we have Valencia Travel to thank for that. We would 10000% recommend Valencia Travel to experience the beauty of Peru and will definitely be recommending this agency to all of our friends and family.

    This was a fantastic way to pack as much as possible in 3 days. From meals in a jungle hideaway to biking down mountains to white water rafting to zip lining to climbing and touring Machu Picchu and everything in between. Highly recommend. And our guide, Percy, was professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely a fantastic host and friend for us throughout the adventure!

    We had such an amazing time on our horseback tour of Cuzco! I highly recommend it! The guide knew all the local history and we felt connected to the Incas during this tour!

    I did the rainbow mountain group tour with Ricardo and it was awesome! He made the trek enjoyable and did a great job explaining everything before we got to the trailhead. Would definitely recommend!

    The staff are very friendly and helpful.
    Nice arrangement for the trips. I booked 5 trips from them and was unable to join couple trips. I reached out to them for that situation. The team understood that and refund for that. Did not expect to get refund though. They also remind you for the next day trip and most of the meals they offer are great. Had a great time join the trips hosted by them. Would like to come back again and day expedition travel would definitely be the choice.

    工作人員都非常友好和樂於助人。
    行程安排不錯。 我從他們那裡預訂了 5 次旅行,但無法參加兩個行程。 我聯繫了他們。 團隊明白這一點並為此退款。 他們還提醒您第二天的旅行,他們提供的大部分餐點都很棒。 參加他們舉辦的旅行玩得很開心。 想再次回來庫斯科,一日探險旅行肯定是選擇。

    We had a wonderful time riding to the Devils Balcony with Vieja Estancia, which was much more fun on horseback than just hiking. Holger was knowledgeable and shared interesting history and back stories about the sites, including the coloring some caves nearby. His team were super accommodating and made sure we were safe. The horses were evidently well cared for and have great spirits, which as a rider, is a major consideration. Wish we had more time to ride more with them

    Tour to Ica and Huacachina

    We had done 4 different tours with them in Cusco area so, when we learned about the possibility of visiting Ica from Lima, we spoke to Joan and in 30 min. we had a fully organised private tour to Ica for the next day! There's nothing else as a tourist you can ask for.

    The tour around Ica was very nice and Huacachina was simply breathtaking. Thanks to Carlos who was very friendly and showed us the main spots in town. "Chancho a la botija" was delicious!!

    Thank you guys!!

    My family trip to Cusco, Peru was one of the most incredible experiences thanks to
    KC Peru Expedition. I’ve been on lots of trips, visited a lot of countries and have dealt with my fair share of tour guides, I have never experienced tour guides like this duo here.

    They made our entire trip seamless (there was 11 of us!) and also treated us like family the entire time and went above & beyond in more ways than one. I’m talking about doing food shopping for us and dropping it off at 11:30 PM at night after we came back from our excursion so we’d have food the next day.

    Thank you KC Peru Expedition for making our trip magical! If you ever plan on visiting Cusco, be sure to have them handle your whole experience.

    We normally use public transportation to visit the sites however given the location of some of the attractions in the Sacred Valley we engaged this travel agency for three separate day tours. After meeting briefly at their office we corresponded using whatsapp and made the payments online using secure links with no surcharge. The tour agencies response time was prompt. The tour guides spoke excellent english and were very knowledgeable about the sites.

    My experience with What a Trip was excellent!! All guides were experienced and knowledgeable, Nicholas managed to coordinate everything perfectly for us including all transport from one place to the other. The whole team was very responsive and attentive to everything needed by our group. All activities organized were special and really interesting e.g. learning about wool making. It was a lifetime experience and we couldn’t have done it without the What a Trip team! Thank you!!

    Had a great, very well organised 2 day trip through sacred valley and Machu Picchu. Yuneska was very helpful and everything went very smoothly. Had a great lunch stop in Urubamba. The hotel was nice in Aguas Calientes and everything went smoothly. Always had someone to meet us and show us around and even a pick up at the end back to our airbnb, highly recommend.

    I was planning to take a trip to Cusco for quite some time and it was in my bucket list and wanted to try and find a travel agency that can make this trip happen for me. I came across Coca life and it was the best thing that happened to me. Coming across this agency exceeded my expectations and gave me the most memorable trip I could ask for. Despite me not being native to the country they treated me as their own and showed me the culture and wonders of what Peru has. 10/10 I would recommend this agency over and over again. When traveling to Peru do not hesitate to choose Coca Life
