What people are saying about Iquitos

Had a wonderful trip. It was not a luxury resort but very clean and food was wholesome. We were kept busy through out the day with activities. Electricity was only for three hours in the evening- just about enough time to get our phones charged. The staff and guides were very helpful - though the language was a bit of a problem. However it was an adventurous trip and I thoughrly enjoyed myself

I went on this tour with my mother and father and we had a great time! Our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. The activities were very well organised and the accommodation was comfortable and clean with very tasty meals every day. Would highly recommend this tour.
