Traveler Testimonies

“Absolutely would recommend you and have already recommended to many friends. I would describe this as one of the best trips I’ve had. It was a very well thought out and well-executed itinerary. I loved the fact that there was a great mix of culture, adventure, activity, entertainment, comfort and the feeling of being in the wild Amazon all at once.”

M. Agarwal, 2016 from India/Ireland

“All your people/connections on the ground were fantastic; hikes prior to Machu Picchu were spectacular; Machu Picchu and hiking Huayna Picchu was awesome; rain forest terrific; all the Lodges were great and the house in Ollantaytambo was really something.  Truly a phenomenal experience and we both had a great time.”

J. Suarez, 2016 from New Jersey, USA

“We have been meaning to write and thank you for an absolutely amazing tour. Your patience and tolerance for changes and accommodating our requests was fantastic. A frequently used phrase was “We love you Jeff” when we arrived at a new destination or particularly loved an activity.”

A Clancey, 2017 from Australia

“The adventure into the Amazon was amazing! 

At first venture, the humidity, heat and bugs did catch me off guard, but once I looked beyond it, the Amazon opened up its wonders, unadulterated.

You have a great leader in Franziska and she is supported by a team of amazing people.  As we got to know the team personally throughout the week, I came to respect the Amazon more through the way that they treated the forest.  It was a personal journey for me as much as it was a tour and I feel lucky that they were with me at this memorable time in my life.”

L. Tran, 2017 from California, USA

“The trip was all that we expected and more. Mashpi Lodge was a wonderful intro to the Galápagos Islands. We really appreciate all you do for us.”
