Amazon Trails Peru

Adventure in Cuzco

This outfit has a growing reputation for providing the best service among the cheaper tour operators. Tours provide a deal of quirky insider information en route. High-power binoculars are also provided, increasing chances of wildlife sightings. Four-night, five-day tours to the zona reservada start from US$1350 per person. Any shorter trips concentrate on either cloud forest or Manu's zona cultural.

If you’re heading on to Puerto Maldonado, onward boat/bus transport can be arranged to save backtracking to Cuzco.

It has recently taken over the lovely old Amazonia Lodge on the Río Alto Madre de Dios, and uses this as a tour base for cloud forest and zona cultural trips.
