Hello, and welcome to KB Adventures!
We are a local Peruvian tour company of trekking specialists and enthusiasts headquartered in the city of Cusco. As one of the original tour agencies here in Cusco (and with over 17 years of experience!), few know Peru better than we do. Read on to learn about our beginning, our mission, and our vision for the future of KB Tours.
Who We Are:
KB Adventures was founded in 2002 by Lola Acuña Salas, a proud Peruvian woman with a passion for travel and for sharing her beautiful country with the world. Named after her children, Kamila and Brian, KB Adventures had a small but ambitious start. Lola first began selling tourist packages on her own, hoping to one day expand her business and become a leading competitor and innovator amongst tourist agencies in Cusco. What’s more, Lola wanted her company to become a source of growth and to create job opportunities for her community so local Peruvians like herself could prosper too.
From the start, Lola knew that the best way to take care of her clients and to grow her business was to first take care of her employees. She wanted to cultivate a sense of kinship within the company and assure that no matter how much the company grew, KB Adventures would always feel like family. By creating a company culture of support, gratitude, and encouragement, the KB employees worked with an ambition and enthusiasm that became contagious to their travelers too. And with that, we grew.
Today we employ over 60 local Peruvians as porters, horsemen, cooks, guides, drivers, campsite owners, videographers, photographers, web developers, office secretaries, and administrators. All of our employees possess great passion and expertise of our country and culture, and all of our guides are mountain specialists with 3 or more years of experience. Together we offer 19 different tours with a variety of treks to Machu Picchu and various day trips throughout the Sacred Valley and the Andes Mountains. As we continue to grow and adventure with people from all over the world, we hope you feel our sense of community too and that these memories stay with you for the rest of your days.
Peru is a mystic country of great cultural and natural significance, and our mission has always been simple: share our beauty, with beautiful service. Our services are delivered with an unparalleled enthusiasm and professionalism and are always upheld to the highest ethical, environmental, legal, and client safety standards. Whether novice or expert, young or old, or traveling solo or in a group, we aim to educate, challenge, and inspire you on our tours and ensure you walk away with memories that will last a lifetime.
We strive to become a leader in the tourism sector in Peru through our dynamic, engaging tours delivered with a high quality of service and a strict adherence to social, environmental, and client responsibility. We also recognize an increasing importance to find a sustainable balance between the expansion of tourism in Peru and in maintaining the welfare of our land and local communities. Therefore, we want our growth to have a positive correlation with the wellbeing of our community. Our best mark of success will be the confidence placed upon us by our clients and in the security of our community and land.
