Worth every penny, after a little bit of confusion regarding room allocation I had an amazing night in the jungle building a camp, sleeping in hammocks and cooking over an open fire. The activities were really great, but we're often not well planned ahead, so lots of leaving for things at short notice. The guides are knowledgeable and very friendly.

Excellent tour. I learned a lot of things with my guide, Jungle James, who is great at transmitting his passion about the Amazonian forest and lifestyle and truly has eagle eyes. The lodge was very nice and simple, with comfortable beds and private bathrooms. The guest family who built the lodge is also very welcoming. I had an amazing time and really recommend anyone who enjoys walking in the forest and animal spotting to do this tour. One note though: the Amazonian forest is incredibly full of life and diversity, but this side is not teeming with jaguars and other dangerous animals: this tour is not a safari. You have to enjoy silently walking in the forest and seeing animals from a distance. I saw many monkeys, sloths, caymans and others and it was incredible to me. But be aware that this requires a certain amount of patience.

This tour is amazing and absolutely worth booking! It is adventurous for sure but there still is comfort, the lodge is cozy and the food is great! Also it is a good mix of activities and time to rest and enjoy nature. The overall atmosphere in the amazon rainforest area is just overwhelmingly beautiful and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our guide James was the best, he knows a lot about the nature and explains and shows many different plants, animals and more…. We did boat trips for bird and dolphin watching, piranha fishing and kaiman spotting but also two hikes to two different types of forests… The highlight for everyone was the night in the jungle, so make sure to book this! No need to be afraid, we felt safe and happy the whole time!
