What our guests say about the rainforest

 

“ What a wonderful trip. You were spot on Mike that the Amazon tour would be exactly what Craig and I were after. Rainforest, then Galapagos, then homeā€¦a lovely whirlwind, our senses are satiated, a piece of each of these special places is now a part of us both. We are eternally grateful for your seamless coordination and logistical support. As you know we had never been on a tour before and were concerned that it was not for us. This was the perfect 'non- tour' . Small groups, excellent local guides and a pleasure to meet the others in our different pods. I am afraid that we are spoiled now and may not have the patience to do our own trip logistics again after working with you. Words are not enough to thank you for all that you have done for us."

Amazon rainforest hiking

 

"Thank you for organizing an amazing rainforest trip for us! We had a wonderful trip and were very impressed the entire time with how smoothly and efficiently everything went. The rainforest was incredible. Beautiful lodge, welcoming staff, and lovely informative guides. The guides worked very well together and were genuinely interested in their work. I liked that there was so little garbage created by us. Lots of food! We could have used at least one more day in the jungle. Packing list was very helpful. Had everything we needed. Thank you very much. A great pleasure to work with you."

Amazon Rainforest Tours

Travel to the lungs of the earth; vibrant, lush & pulsing with life

An Amazon rainforest tour is a great way to extend your Galapagos trip. This offers you the opportunity to experience a completely different environment and culture. Add just 4 to 5 days onto your total trip in a comfortable and remote Amazon rainforest lodge.

Amazon rainforest toursEcuadorian rainforest is easy to access

A short spectacular flight from Quito plus a couple of hours in a motor canoe and you can be nestled into the Ecuadorian Amazon. Explore with local guides and learn about the indigenous rainforest way of life.

Choose your level of comfort, activity and trip length

Comfort and activity options range from first class and relaxed to rustic & adventurous depending on your preferences. Contact us to for a combined Galapagos and Amazon rainforest tour.

If you have less than 4 days to add onto your Galapagos trip consider a couple of days in the Cloud forest or the Andes instead of the Amazon.

With more than 4-5 days to add onto your Galapagos trip you might consider a trip to Machu Picchu and the Peruvian Amazon.
