Had a wonderful trip. It was not a luxury resort but very clean and food was wholesome. We were kept busy through out the day with activities. Electricity was only for three hours in the evening- just about enough time to get our phones charged. The staff and guides were very helpful - though the language was a bit of a problem. However it was an adventurous trip and I thoughrly enjoyed myself

very nice experience of navigation on the Amazon River and knowledge of animals. of course, it is not a safari and many are in cages, but you can interact with monkeys, anacondas, turtles and see animals up close that you would not otherwise see. the jungle walk is also short but beautiful and you see two communities living there

I went on this tour with my mother and father and we had a great time! Our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. The activities were very well organised and the accommodation was comfortable and clean with very tasty meals every day. Would highly recommend this tour.

Great trip with very good guide Christo! It was very important to trust someone like him in Iquitos especially for female solo traveller like me.Christo speak good English,have a great knowlege about the area and I feel very comfortable with his companionship.

Wonderful tour of the Amazon River and neighboring stream reserve such as animal and lodge
