A sixth sense

Reviewed July 5, 2017

Alain seemed to have a sixth sense about the jungle. He has an incredible knowledge of bird sounds, identifying a bird within seconds etc. He also knew where to look to find what each trip was focused on. When we found the animal/bird/reptile/insect he provided a full description and a few stories around it. So the depth of our own understanding increased and we enjoyed each experience to the full. He was always looking to deliver to us an amazing experience - and he delivered.

Best guide ever!

Reviewed February 27, 2017

Alaín was an incredible tourguide! My boyfriend and I had a three day tour with him and he was incredibly knowledgable about the animals, plants, and folklore of the area and explained everything in great detail. He filled our days with the most amazing activities, such as seeing river dolphins, monkeys, and sloths, guiding us on a boat through flooded rainforest, and most impressively, taking us camping in the jungle, which was a labor-intensive effort that involved clearing a site for the tent with machetes, building a tent, and cooking dinner-- somehow he still had all the energy to take us out on a night tour to see caiman (and he caught a baby one which we were able to hold). We also met Alaín's friend Martina the wooly monkey, who surprised us with a visit in our boat. Alaín gave us the experience of a lifetime and we had so much fun. Thank you, Alaín!

5 Tage Regenwald im Amazonas / 4 days in the Amazonas with Alain

Reviewed September 8, 2016

Alain ist ein erstaunlich professioneller und hervorragend informierter Guide. Er kennt jede Pflanze und jedes Tier das uns über den Weg gelaufen ist mit allem wissenschaftlichem Hintergrundwissen. Er konnten alle unsere Fragen beanworten.  Mit ihm fühlt man sich immer sicher, er ist immer gut gelaunt - er hat sich während unseres gesamten Aufenthalts hervorragend um uns gekümmert.

Mit seinem geübten Auge hat er sogar nachts ein Schlange gefunden und für uns gefangen, damit wir sie von Nahem bestaunen konnten.

Davon abgesehen ist er außerdem ein hervorragender Koch, der uns aus selbst gefangen Fischen ein sehr gutes Essen gezaubert hat. Außerdem hat er uns mit seinen Geschichten abends gut unterhalten.

Wir hätten keinen besseren Guide finden können. Die Tage mit Alain waren eine sehr schöne Erfahrung für unsere Familie.

Amazing guide

Reviewed June 6, 2016

We cannot say enough good things about Alain.  He completely made our experience in the Amazon due to his 1) knowledge of the animals, bugs, plants, etc 2) his resourcefulness 3) his love for the jungle

Even when we were getting eaten alive by mosquitos or dealing with the hot temperatures he was always positive and showing us all the Amazon had to offer.  He spoke great english which really helped as we spoke no spanish.  He also ensured we were always safe and he constantly was ensuring we were doing what we wanted to do along the way to really make it our experience. 

Due to all the research he does in the jungle it is beyond impressive the knowledge he has about it.  I doubt any other guide will know as much as him. 

I would highly recommend doing a tour with him.
