Best Experience in the Amazon

Reviewed April 10, 2016

My boyfriend and I did a Jungle Tour in Iquitos and luckily, Alain was our tourguide! He led us through the Jungle with an impressive knowledge of the Amazon. We asked so many questions and many times, Alain answered even more than we were hoping to hear. 

He is very professional and still wouldn't miss a good smile! I would recommend him to my friends!

A genuine professional and amazing attitude

Reviewed April 3, 2016

Alain (Allen) has everything you look for in a guide. Right away I was pleasantly surprised by his perfectly fluent English, which is hard to find in Iquitos. His knowledge of the Amazon is very impressive and he never hesitates to share what he knows (even after hundreds of questions asked to him). He is a true professional, always studying and furthering his expertise of the jungle. Furhermore he is extremely hospitable and takes great care of his groups. He went above and beyond helping my girlfriend and I after our tour, taking much of his free time and expecting nothing in return. I would recommend him to anyone.

Una buena aventura

Reviewed January 8, 2016

Los días que estuve en el lodge con alain realmente la pase muy bien, aprendí mucho sobre plantas, animales, pesca y tecnicas de supervivencia. además conocí a una gran persona la cual consideró un buen amigo con el que esperó volver a tener muchas aventuras ya sea en la selva o en otro  lugar.

Saludos y mucha buena vibra!!!

Best Experience We've Ever Had

Reviewed June 18, 2015

Could not have had a better experience touring the Amazon jungle than we had with Alain. His knowledge was so extensive. There was no question he couldn't answer. At one point, I literally asked, "how did you learn all of this?" It's clear that Amazon wildlife and ecosystems aren't just a job for Alain— they're his passions. More importantly, to me, was Alain's personality and integration in the Amazon community. It's very easy for a guide to accidentally create a "classroom" environment, and Alain DOES NOT do that. He's funny fun, and spontaneous— we had such a great time and couldn't imagine this experience with any other way. He also introduced us to the village of Porto Miguel, which ended up being the highlight of our trip. Meeting all of the families, seeing the way they live their lives, and spending time in the village was eye-opening and magical. Cannot thank him enough for everything he showed us, it really was the trip of a lifetime. Y'all would be lucky to have Alain as a guide!!!

    Amazon adventure

    Reviewed January 5, 2015

    We stayed at the Treetop Lodge and had great adventures with Alain from a village tour to piraña fishing. We then spent 5 hours with him and his beautiful 6 year old daughter touring Iquitos doing things we would never have found on our own! We insisted he bring his daughter as he was giving up his day with his family to take us. We highly recommend him to fellow travellers.
