“Well organized trip, we had an excellent time! All the team (guide, driver, cook, boat driver) were professional and clearly, I enjoy what they do. Peru is blessed to have Manu Cloud Forest! Beautiful scenery and animal and wildlife! Amazing that he found so many animals, insects and plants to show us. Really a highlight of the trip and made the tour enjoyable, also enjoyed the villages we stopped at. Alternative roads were very bumpy, but the driver was very skilled. Boat ride was fun! Exceeded expectations! Web site and documents prepared us well. The lodges and bathrooms were clean and at Manu Lodge, it was nice that the muddy floors were cleaned several times, specially the mud rooms, great attention to detail! Great experience all around, hope to do it again! Wilfredo was very knowledgeable and the team was very helpful and highly skilled. The meals at Manu Lodge were fantastic! Wilfredo found all the animals for us! Except the jaguar, maybe next time! :) ”

“6D or 7D would be much better, more time at the Lodges. Ronnie is smart and experienced guide, excellent English, a sense of humor, just perfect customer service skills and attitude. We got a reply to our email request the same day, booking was very smooth although we did it only a few days before the trip. The trip between Cloud Forest and the jungle lodge was too long, 15 hours when coming back! This was my first jungle experience and it was fantastic.”

“The guide (Ronnie) was a perfect guide: intelligent, civilized, well-educated guy with excellent sense of humor, great attitude and perfect customer service skills. I don’t know who charge of lodge management was, but everything worked very well through Ronnie, our guide. Service at your office was excellent and all our questions were answered quickly, Mr. Calderon’s knowledge about nature conditions were not best possible, but luckily Ronnie came to meet us personally before the trip, which was great. Thank you for unforgettable 5 days!”

“The guides (Livio and Ronald) are pleasant, very good at spotting animal. The cook was very good. Trips are expensive but you get value for money. The transport was hard and tiring but very good drivers who shown great responsibility. Every single employee did a very good job. I would have liked a presentation of all the employees, since they all do so much for us. But overall a great trip. Thanks to guides and staff.”

INGER LEHMANN, 09/07/2011 Rugbjerevej 75, 8260 Viby – Denmark

“I think it has been a great trip. I learnt a lot and saw many beautiful plants and animals. There was a lot of transport, but I guess that is the way to do it. Both our guides were fantastic, they were very help full and had great knowledge about the plants and animals we saw. The cook Manuel was great. Everything seemed to be in order, but it would be nice with a presentation of the lodge people so you knew them by name. It was a very long boat trip and it was wild, but I don’t think it could have been done better. I was very amazed about water and Daniel on the boat and the same about Eddy our driver – They all did a very nice job! Fantastic and unique experience. One thing that could improve the trip would be more variation of the trail at Manu Lodge. We only walked as 01 trail and I would have enjoyed another one also. But a great trip.”

LOUISE JUHL LEHMANN, 09/07/2011 Rugbjerevej 75, 8260 Viby – Denmark

“Both guides (Livio and Ronald) showed lots of knowledge and had a really good sense of humor and really good personalities. The cook Manuel didn’t really had anything to do with the management, but everything was excellent so credit to than as well. The driver Eddy and the boat men Walter and Daniel made a great job. All in all a great experience though some more trails would have been good! And maybe introduce the lodge crew, I don’t know their names :) ”

ANDRES JOHN LEHMANN, 09/07/2011 Rugbjerevej 75, 8260 Viby – Denmark

“The guide was considerate, attentive, enthusiastic, amazing knowledgeable and easy to be with much more could we hope for. All our drivers were very friendly and very skillful on the road and on the rivers. Mountain biking was fantastic, we went a minimum for 03 hours, much more than being in the mini bus. Ronald was a wonderful guide. We had one or two problems in our trip. Paradise Lodge was not expecting us on the final night and the road between Paradise Lodge and the Cloud Forest Lodge was blocked by a long. He was very calm and professional in negative situation.”

CAROLINE ZEALEY , 12/08/2011 Litle Beetor Staple Dartington – England

“Ronald’s knowledge of the fauna and flora and all things environmental was superb. He was extremely helpful and his fun personality made the overall experience a truly memorable one. He was an awesome guide and great company. The lodge manager was very polite, but obviously the language barrier is always difficult. Quite understand the above but a warm shower would make this place excellent. Overall a really pleasant experience.”

PENNY BUCHANAN, 20/08/2011 9 Landsdowne Rd. Bryanston Johannes Burg - South Africa

“Was a great experience. I learnt a lot and everyone involved made it that good. Ronald was an awesome guide, can’t get any better - Ronny is a boss. Felt really comfortable, they can’t be faulted only thing is the language which is hard for us and them but that is small. I found for such a long time very comfortable. It was great, thanks to everyone especially Ronny. Would love to have stayed longer and would definitely want to do it again. Fantastic experience with a very capable young man.”
