This place is really out of the world. Amazon Rainforests are massive and there are many hidden gems here. We were lucky to spot many animals including Tapirs, leopords, cheetahs and more. The guide as a local knew a lot and it was very easy to spot animals with him. He also has an immense knowledge about the plants and flowers those are typical to the region. The lodges were very cozy and comfortable. I was picked up and dropped off to the airport in Puerto Maldonado. Felt very safe and comfortable and highly recommend this comany.

We six friends decided to do this tour after reading all the wonderful comments about their service. Abel the owner decided to make this a private tour woth just the six of us in the group. So everything was very flexible. The guide was just amazing and very attentive. He became a part of us and made us feel like it was a trip with a long known friend. He was very friendly and at the same time was professional. He maintained a good aura on all days. The lodges were good and so were the food. I am very happy to recommend them for an amazing trip.
