  • Jimmie was our guide. I felt he was very knowledgeable and especially appreciated his expertise in negotiating the river and rapids. I felt very safe. He was very patient and encouraging on the Inca Trail. He left me with an appreciation for the Peruvian culture and I learned much about the history. Great guide. Also very personable.

  • My daughters,  my grandchildren,  and I took a private tour with Amazonas Explorer from July 19 to the 26th, 2019. The tour exceeded my expectations.  The guide, the drivers, the cooks were polite, knowledgeable,  and friendly.  They made us feel safe, comfortable, and pampered. Every day was filled with excitement,  wonder, and overall fun. José,  our unforgettable guide, made sure of that. We toured Cuzco, Sacsayhuaman,  Tambo Machay, the Inca Temple of the Moon, the concentric circle terraces in Moray, the salt pans of Maras breathtaking Machu Pichu,  and Lake Titicaca. Our guide and driver in Puno were also top-notch. We were very happy with our hotels, food, and transportation. I can't say enough about the service provided by Amazonas Explorer. If you would like to tour Peru, we highly recommend Amazonas Explorer. Thank you for making my dream vacation a reality. Martha, Mary, Margot, Alexia, and Niko

  • Our guide Juan Carlos Salazar is a wonderful man. We connected well, he was very polite, personable, extremely helpful and attentive to our needs. Pedro the chef was fantastic and the other meals were all tasty and healthy. All equipment was in good shape and well functioning and the complimentary water bottle was a nice treat- a quality and unique bottle. We loved the quiet hikes with very few people around, the views were spectacular, the crew was great, the km104 Inca Trail approach to Macchu Picchu was very special and the Lares thermal baths were so relaxing. It was a wonderful life experience, I will remember it always.

  • Hi Carol and Paul,
    I debriefed with our client yesterday and he absolutely RAVED about how incredible the guides, porters, itinerary, and general organization of Amazonas was.
    Please pass on to your entire team how much we appreciate your hard work in making these itineraries run smoothly, in particular, Jimmy and the porters who accompanied the team.
    We are looking forward to continuing this strong partnership for many years to come 🙂

  • Dimetrio our porter was excellent, very friendly, and respectful: Julio the driver was friendly and safe. We only did the hike from km104 but it was perfect in every way. C His unbelievable knowledge and respect for the culture and history really made it a perfect trip. The 1-day hike was challenging in parts, as expected, but Chino always made sure we were safe and happy. Every part was perfect. Winay Wayna Sungate and Machu Picchu were all mind-blowing. Thank you Chino for making my wife's 50th birthday the best ever and showing my sons a perfect example of a passionate and hard worker.

  • Rafting with Santiago was amazing!!! Our safety kayaker Victor was a very skilled boater and always had eyes on us through all the rapids! This company has great focus on safety and fun and has top notch staff! Also the food served during the trip was amazing!!! I would 10 out of 10 recommend using Amazonas Explorers! We can't wait to come back to Peru and plan another excursion with Paul and his team!!
