KB Tambo Travel as featured in
Hi, we're KB Tambo!
Our business began with 13 years living near Machu Picchu, creating KB Tambo, a small hostal and adventure travel business. “Tambo” means rest house, in the Incan language of Quechua.
We know you. You normally travel on your own – heck, you usually are the guide! We get it. We only operate trips where we can offer value. Often, it would cost you more to go on your own. We organize rad trips – either private, or in small groups – and excell at the boring logistics that ultimately play a huge role in your trip’s success.
Our trips are crafted for people who want to adventure off the beaten path, learn about and experience different cultures from the inside, and have a freaking good time.
In 2020, tourism in Peru shut down almost overnight (along with our biz). Tourism is the thrid-largest industry in Peru and immediately the people we loved were struggling to put food on the table. We believe the greatest way to make an impact in developing countries is by supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs. Your trip, dinners on the town, and souvenirs for friends all make a huge difference to these people.
With every trip booked, we donate a percentage of the profit to micro-finance loans, small business mentorship, and relevant current needs to community you are traveling to. Our goal is to transform generational poverty into sustainable self-reliance. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make this goal a reality.
