Testimonials Six-day tour

“I enjoyed our trip so much learned a lot; guide was very knowledgeable, comfortable stays, great trails plus transport. The tour guide always made sure things mine taken care of, so glad he is conscious plus making others conscious of the trip at the rainforest is in learned a lot about wildlife in Manu. The food was great; the Cloud Forest Lodge is beautiful and well kept. The boat transport was very enjoyable, they were great. I suggest people walk bikes through the tunnels. Bike ride was so fun and enjoyed it even in the rain. Beautiful. Wonderful experience with Manu Nature Tours. I will never forget this trip or some of the interesting things we saw. I learn a lot and would definitely recommend this tour to other people. Thanks Boris and Manu Nature Tours for a great experience.”

“Professional information and fantastic, beautiful trip that lived up to expectations – a once in a lifetime (but hopefully, not!!) adventure!! A good guide is really the difference on a trip like this. Boris was friendly, informative and worked as a team with the other staff. Raul at Manu Cloud Forest Lodge was very helpful. Jose (office) handled our questions and requests professionally and was very helpful. Drivers (and occasionally road – builders!!) and boat men excellent – couldn’t rate them happily enough. Boat drivers, especially did a very difficult job, brilliant. Manuel (cooker) was a genius, great meals in difficult circumstances. I have no problem with basic nature of the accommodations in appropriate for the setting. Maybe some maintenance required, but overall, clean, comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you to everyone, especially Boris and the team for this trip.”
