Alain was our guide with Otorongo Expeditions in the Amazon and was very impressive the entire time. I travelled with my girlfriend and her family and I had organized this section of our trip in Peru and we were all very impressed with Alain's knowledge of the jungle and what seemed to be everything in it, including the river. He has extensive survival knowledge and experience as well as biological and scientific knowledge from his field experience via guiding world leading experts and scientists on their expeditions from leading univerisites among other things. He also seems to have strong relationships and connections with the people in the communities. He speaks excellent english. He is honest and will very likely put in more effort than you will to acheive what you came to do in the jungle. Alain is the man!
