Bill
These folks aim to please. Everyone is very friendly and sincere. The facility is terrific, the food outstanding, and the guide very knowledgeable. If you are looking for an off the tourist track adventure, I recommend this. We did the "Fast and Furious" tour prior to our 4 day hike to Machu Picchu. You will find the airfares to do this side trip very reasonable.
Treyanas
Their knowledge of plants, animals, boating, traditional medicine, and geography was very impressive. Their ability to spot animals and birds was especially mind-blowing. Our visit to the rain forest was certainly a highlight, maybe the highlight, of our vacation in Peru.
Nivedita - "Amazing Amazon done right"
We did the 3 days and 2 nights trip exploring amazon from the lodge. From the get go we felt that our trip was very personalized with the manager reaching out to us a couple of days ahead of our trip.
