The trip of a lifetime! My best friend and I chose this tour to celebrate our 30th Birthdays - it was Amazing!!! We had a really nice time visiting Cusco, Machu Picchu and going to the Rainbow Mountain. The tour guides were really nice and we told us a lot about everything. We visited in November and for Machu Picchu this was amazing - it was misty in the morning and sunny by mid-morning, so we got to see it with all weather types. Highly recommend going at 6am and spending most of the day there - circuit 2 and 4 were great! We even hiked up one of the mountains. Carlos, Judy, and Wilson were great and really educated us about each site.

Great way to experience Peru The tour was a great way to experience Cusco, the sacred valley, Machu Picchu and the Vinicunca mountain. We only had 4 full days, and it was the right amount of time. I was there with my best friend celebrating our 30th, so we will always cherish this moment. The tour guides (Carlos, Judy, and Wilson) were very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped us get immersed to the history of the Incas, and made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. The accommodation provided as part of the package was very adequate, and the overall experience was great.
Encantos en Cusco Estamos muy contentos con los servicios que hemos recibido. Desde el recojo en el aeropuerto, fueron puntuales con un cartel con nuestro nombre. La habitacion que pedimos fue hermosa en el hotel Mayu con vista a la calle 7 borreguitos, Royer nos atendio muy bien 10/10. La agencia se comunicaba con nosotros todos los dias, para saber como nos hiba en el tour o si es que necesitamos ayuda. Realmente muy serviciales. En aguas Calientes Daniel, estuvo atento con nosostros . El tour en Machu Picchu fue realmente magico. Tenemos que agradecer mucho a Alicia por el tour bien planificado y a Jose Angel por todas las atenciones todos los dias, nunca nos dejo solos.
Servicio de calidad Buena atención, personalizada, se adecuan a las necesidades, escuchan sugerencias y son muy amables, muchas gracias!


Description Tambopata Adventure Trekking Tour

With the Tambopata trekking adventure tour or “Tambopata Trek tour”, you can enjoy nature while discovering the wildlife of the lowland jungle. An adventure trip in the Peruvian jungle that begins departing in a boat from the community of El Infierno to our lodge in front of the island of the monkeys, this island besides being home to various types of monkeys, is also the habitat of turtles and herons. This excursion to Tambopata has as an option to make the Canopy walkway of 90 meters high appreciate a spectacular view of the wildlife, at night we go in search of scorpions, tarantulas and caimans of the species of Alligators present in South America; they paddle through the rivers or lakes in canoes with flashlights to try to find them. Four of the six species of caiman are present in the Tambopata area.

If you are looking for a Cultural Tour in Tambopata, this trip to Tambopata is definitely for you, as you will be able to meet the Ese ejas, known as huarayos by the oldest population of Puerto Maldonado, are a people of hunters, fishermen and horticulturists who have been present in Madre de Dios since time immemorial. The Ese ejas settled in the plains near the Baawaja or Tambopata rivers. The Ese ejas were contacted at the beginning of the last century by the Dominican Fathers, who tried to free them from the exploitation to which they were subjected by the rubber tappers who entered the department following in the footsteps of the infamous Fermín Fitzcarrald. According to the elders of the community of Infierno, that hard time, of great transformations in their way of life, was a very hard blow for the Ese eja people, whose inhabitants were forced to abandon the territory they had inherited from their elders. Despite the change in the ethnic composition of the community, the Ese eja families that maintain this status continue to struggle to preserve their customs and the language spoken by their elders.

If you take the Tambopata 5D / 4N tours, you are supporting this community because the income they receive from their lodge is mainly invested in education and health. The rest goes to care for the elderly, build community benefit works and the implementation of new productive projects. The work of cultural rescue and protection of their traditional knowledge is done with their elders, with the people of Ese Ejas who have been able to maintain the tradition. That is why most of the naturalist guides and birdwatchers in Tambopata are descendants of Ese ejas families.

It is also attractive for those who enjoy bird watching, since thanks to the vegetation in its mangroves and surroundings, it is the habitat of a population of more than a thousand species of birds, including migratory and resident birds such as the Hoatzin, Cormorant and abundant piranhas and taricayas and the elusive Giant Otter. Complete your expedition by going deep into the jungle to look for mammal nests and clay licks as well as auroras and macaws.

The Tambopata 5 Days tour is becoming one of the main tourist destinations in Peru, however, there is one tour in Peru that every traveler dreams of getting to at least once in their life and that is the Machu Picchu tour, so we recommend after you make your trip to Tambopata that you book your Machu Picchu tour package.
