I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Peru and the climb up Macchu Picchu was magical. Kuoda lived up to expectations and the trip was indeed memorable. Your service is excellent and our guide, Ever was simply amazing.
We were a little let down by the flight delay but Kuoda immediately tried to turn our vacation right back around and I'm very impressed and appreciate the effort that your team has put in.
If I return to South America some day, I will definitely engage your services. I will highly recommend your services to my friends and family.
Thank you for the great memories.

A Magical Peruvian Adventure
La Paz, once known as "Nuestra Señora de la Paz" (Our Lady of Peace), is the highest capital on Earth and a lively metropolis indeed. Here, you will find amazing views, colorful markets, fine restaurants, an active nightlife and plenty of culture. It is a place where one can see the ancient traditions living side by side with modern day living
A must on your tour to La Paz is visiting the Witches' Market, the Mercado de las Brujas. There are a wide variety of supplies on display that have been used for centuries within the indigenous Aymara culture for manipulating the spirits. Mystical lotions and potions are sold as well as folk remedies and herbs. Most intriguing are the more macabre products such as dried llama fetuses, used in offerings to Pachamama (Mother Earth), particularly for burying in new building foundations. You will also see yatiri (shamans) wandering through the market offering to tell fortunes for the locals. They can be identified by their pouches of coca leaves and dark hats.
There are plenty of natural attractions surrounding La Paz, including sub-tropics, desert and snow-capped peaks, offering plenty of options for hiking such as to the Valley of the Moon. If you are a history lover, you'll want to visit the important and relatively recently excavated Tiahuanaco. The site was first settled around 1200 BC and new discoveries are still constantly being made here.
