Alain is a highly competent and extremely knowledgeable guide

Reviewed August 5, 2018

Alain was our guide when a friend and I spent six days at Otorongo Expeditions in July 2018. He collected us from our hotel in Iquitos and supervised our jungle experience until he delivered us back to our hotel. As soon as we reached the lodge about 100 km downstream from the city he asked us what we wanted to do and drew up an itinerary that covered everything we wished to experience. My friend is an avid birdwatcher and I was very impressed with Alain's extensive knowledge of the birds in the area and where to find them. He took us fishing and we were highly successful, catching more than enough to feed ourselves. Alain told me he gives jungle survival courses for military personnel and it was fascinating to watch his bush craft. He built a fish grill out of green sticks and cooked our fish to perfection, he found and caught a small caiman in pitch darkness, he showed us river dolphins, sloths and poison dart frogs by day, and tarantulas by night among other activities. Alain filled each one of our days with value and the trip was worth every cent - thanks Alain!

 Our guide Alain was a perfect fit for our need during our stay at Otorongo Expideitions. I was most impressed right from the very start when he asked what it was "we wanted to do"  during our stay. Once our expectations and desires were expressed he gave us a very clear briefing on what to expect and how we could get our goals accomplished. Alain was very knowedgeable, prepared and willing to go the extra distance in every expidition we undertook. He was enthusiastic and tireless in making sure we got the maximum experience during out trip. Alain exceeded our expectations and then some and I highly recommend him as a professional guide!

¡Alain hizo que nuestra experiencia en la Selva sea maravillosa!

Desde que nos recogió, hasta instalarnos en el lodge y las excursiones que hicimos, todo el tiempo fue profesional y muy amable, nos dio consejos muy útiles para nuestros tours. Además, es súper gracioso y nos tomó fotos lindas.

En todo momento nos trasmitió seguridad en cada una de las actividades que hacíamos, confiamos plenamente en su experiencia. Siempre mostró interés genuino en saber si estábamos cómodas con los tours, que era lo que preferíamos hacer, qué nos gustaba más, y a nuestro ritmo.

Sin duda todas las historias que nos contó sobre sus vivencias en la selva nos dejaban asombradas, y compartió también con nosotras el amor por sus hijitos y cuánto los extrañaba cada vez que salía a trabajar. Nos demostró ser no sólo un excelente guía sino también un preocupado papá.

Si volvemos a la selva, no contactaría a otra persona que no fuera él. ¡Súper recomendado!
