Tour Reviews
  • Matteo

    Cesar is a great choice for a tour guide with all his past experience and his many resources within Peru. He took me on a tour through Iquitos teaching me about the local foods available, the folklore of the people as well as his cultural connections(his uncle is an amazing painter, to whom I was introduced). Cesar’s English is superb and communications were extremely easy. I’m simply greatful to you Cesar for making my experience of Peru (Iquitos) able to be understood on a deeper level than I would have been able to do alone. All in all an excellent experience. 

  • David

    Cesar is a guide not too be missed. He is knowledgable, friendly, and gets at what you want with his input. He is worth the pricé just hear his stories.

  • Katherine

    Spent three days and two nights in the rainforest. Cesar was our guide for all three days and was very knowledgeable about the area. He explained to us about the indigenous communities near our lodge, the wildlife and plants, and the Peruvian culture. He was very kind and spoke very good English. He made the trip very personal for us, asking us questions about our lives back at home while sharing with us stories of his own. We could tell while conversing with him that he has a lot of experience guiding and is well traveled. Definitely recommend Cesar if you want to have a memorable yet educational experience.

  • George

    It is fair to say that Cesar met our expectations and more; thanks to his passion for adventure and unrivalled knowledge of the environment we had an unforgettable experience.

    We found the lodge a fantastic base from which to explore the incredible jungle. It was comfortable and we were well catered for by wonderful staff. Thanks to Cesar's meticulous organisation we always had something exciting to be doing, embarking on several treks and canoe rides. 

    On these excursions Cesar's knowledge of flora and fauna was fascinating and allowed us to see our beautiful surroundings in a whole new light. His sense of adventure and fun was contagious, and we particularly enjoyed the night trek. Perhaps the best experience of the trip was swimming in the Amazon, a moment we will all cherish, made possible by Cesar's knowledge of the river. 

    On the last day one of our group had to return early to catch a flight. After returning to Iquitos we were preparing to say goodbye to Cesar, but having paid for the whole 3 days, Cesar insisted that he would take those who were staying on a tour of the city. As in the jungle, Cesar's insights provided a whole new perspective of Iquitos and its people. 

    We were very lucky to have found Cesar and would wholeheartedly recommend him to any perspective adventurers.

    If you are looking to visit the Amazon jungle, there is no better guide than Cesar. Whether you are looking to relax in the hammocks and enjoy nature, or in our case, explore the true essence of the Amazons, Cesar and his team is who you want to guide you. From fishing for phiranhas, to searching for anacondas and bullet ants. This indeed was by far, the most unforgettable experience of my life. Oh, and be sure to try to ayahuasca!! 

  • panos

    I worked with Cesar during a very complex Amazon project, with very specific visits in remote communities. I have worked with many guides in Peru, but have never worked with with someone with such great knowledge of the local culture, very positive attitude, enthusiasm and professionalism. This ia guide that is serious about sharing a unique experience based 100% on the requirements of the tourist/client. I would recommend Cesar to anyone visiting Iquitos and beyond.  If you are serious about touring the Amazon, look no further.

  • justenperry

    Cesar was a great host and guide. Very fun and witty. Very knowledgeable of Flora and fauna and honestly really made the trip for us to the jungle. I would go on a tour with him anytime.

  • Sirrahhc

    Cesar was an outstanding guide.  We did the 3 day trip and he took care of all logistics, transportation, activities, food, hotel bookings, etc.  Every possible thing we needed was provided for.  He guided us on 3 jungle treks, including a night hike and he pointed out all wildlife and plant life.  We went fishing, bird watching, swimming in the Amazon (safely).  We went to a local village and visited an animal sanctuary.  We were allowed to hold camen, birds, 3 toed sloths and more.  There were more activities we could've chosen from but we ran out of time.  I wish we would've done the 4 day adventure.  The lodge was awesome!  Our rooms even included bathrooms and showers.  The cook staff and food were amazing.  All in all I couldn't have asked for a better guide or adventure.  Cesar was so great I'd recommend him to my mother.  That's how safe he makes it and how knowledgeable he is.  Don't waste your time with anyone else, choose Cesar.

    Cesar, a local man who is genuinely passionate about sharing his knowledge and his love of his home; The beautiful Peruvian Amazon! 

    I booked a 3 Day/2 Night Amazon trip. All aspects of the trip were covered, from airport pickup to pre/post accomodation. Cesar was clear in communication about the logistics and activities that would take place. He was friendly and professional, ensuring everyone in the group was well looked after at all times. The staff at the lodge were warm and kind people, the food was fresh and delicious. The accomodation was clean and tidy, with a beautiful hammock area to chill and absorb the sounds and energy of the jungle.     

    Activities included day and night jungle hikes and boat floats to explore the jungle and creeks.  We saw plenty of wildlife including spiders, insects, sloths, monkeys, an iguana, snakes, rats, bats, birds and much more. We had the opportunity to swim in the river with dolphins, camp out at night (although the weather wasn’t suitable), go piranha fishing and spend time visiting the local community. 

    Exploring the Amazon was by far the highlight of my trip to Peru. If you are thinking about a Amazonian adventure, I highly recommend chatting to Cesar.       

  • Alexandra

    Cesar was a great guide during my 3D/2N Jungle Tour in Amazonia. He made sure the needs of every group member were satisfied. I greatly appreciated his willingness to wake up early for piranha fishing or stay late for insect watching solely for me when the rest of the group preferred to chill at the lodge. Thanks to him, I learned about local community life and healing qualities of plants, spotted wildlife, tried a piranha, clicked a wet selfie under the rain with the Dog, swam with dolphins, just to name a few. He is a great photographer and a famous naturalist, and I cannot recommend him more.

  • benjamin

    Going through the Amazon was made extra special by having Cesar as a guide. His passion and enthusiasm is infectious, he has got all the answers and a number of great stories to tell. His experience is telling. I would reccomend his services without doubt!

  • Katharina

    I really liked the tour with Cesar. He is very knowledgeable, friendly and he showed us everything the jungle has to offer.

  • Andrew
    Cesar is a very friendly, patient and knowledgeable guide.
  • Melissa
    I was looking for a private guide for 7 days 6 nights in the jungle and was so lucky to find Cesar. We emailed back and forth beforehand and he was really fast to respond and was interested in customizing my trip. I was impressed with his knowledge of the animals and the plants and he was really skilled on the water as well. I was able to spend a memorable night camping but the majority of the trip was spent in a lodge run by some of his family. They were very kind and the food was great. Whatever your interests may be Cesar will be able to make it happen. It was a highlight of my trip to Peru and I would highly recommend Cesar as a guide for yourself or your group. There are many guides to choose from in Iquitos but he's the real deal.
  • Veena
    Cesar was a great great guide for foreigners to Peru. He is very patient and he takes the time to explain any and all questions you might have and has extensive knowledge on the plants and animals in the amazon.
  • Joany
    Cesar was a wonderful fixer and guide (and on-screen talent!) for our television crew while we filmed in Inquitos and up/down river into Pucaurqillo. He took care of our crew and managed our very complicated requirements with great humour and warmth. Thank you again Cesar.
  • Darcy
    Cesar was our guide through Peru's "red zone" from Puerto Ene down past Pucallpa during our 2013 source to sea expedition down the Amazon www.kayaktheamazon.com While this was not your typical guided jungle trip, we still relied heavily on Cesar's local insight. He was very knowledgeable, professional, and extremely helpful in procuring all the necessary permissions to travel through this area, and with the face to face interactions with the locals. He helped us find safe camping spots, hired good local motorized canoe drivers and was an invaluable resource when it came to "tricky situations" where the local Ashaninka people were unsure of who we were or what we were doing. Despite being in a fairly stressful situation, Cesar still found time to point out Pink Amazonian River Dolphins to us!
  • John
    I have been on two river trips on the Amazon with Cesar. The first one was in 2012 with a group. The second one was in July 2014 and there were just three including Cesar. On the first trip Cesar provided excellent service with regard to river navigation, translating and even cooking, The only trouble we had was when we did not have him with us. When the second trip came up I immediately contacted Cesar. He quickly embraced the spirit of the trip which was to be an attempt by a deaf paddler to break the existing record for paddling from Iquitos to Belem, Brazil. Arrangements had been made for a number of Brazilian paddlers to join us in Iquitos. When none of the Brazilians showed up Cesar enthusiastically volunteered to be my partner in a tandem kayak. The deaf paddler was in a solo kayak. The failure of the Brazilians to appear changed the entire focus of the trip. We decided to paddle from Iquitos to Santa Rosa at the Peruvian border with Brazil. Once again Cesar provided excellent service and we had a great time paddling hours at a time occasionally stopping to visit a villaage or wander down a beach. His open and friendly manner gained us acceptance at homes and villages for camping, shopping and dining the entire way. He is an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide and will be an immediate asset for your business.
  • Christopher
    I spent a week with Cesar as my guide in the Loreto region of the Peruvian Amazon in 2005. It was an amazing experience. He is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the Amazon and the best times/means to find wildlife. Cesar was interested in what I wanted to get out of my stay and was very adept at helping me achieve those goals, which mainly were experiencing the many aspects of the jungle and documenting wildlife and local human culture. He is also very easy to get along with. I heartily recommend him as a tour guide!
