    The tour was the highlight of our amazing trip to Peru. We were only there a couple of days yet felt the most relaxed of the whole holiday. This is a safe introduction to the Amazon experience and you're kept very busy with hikes, a pre-dawn start for a trip down the river to see wildlife etc. It was lovely to go to bed, listening to the sound of the jungle and impossible to stay awake when resting on the hammocks during the day. What truly made it great was our wonderful, kind and supportive guide, Edwin. Organisations are defined by their staff and Edwin and the team at the lodge were brilliant; nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

    I can't say enough how much I loved my time with Maniti. Everything was just incredible. Rodrigo is an amazing guide- he's so kind, knows everything about the jungle, and fit so much in during a short amount of time. The experiences were perfect, food was delicious, and lodging was nice and clean. Already planning my next trip back, and I highly recommend this to everyone.

    BOOK WITH RODRIGO!!!! We had an amazing experience solely because of our tour guide Rodrigo. He had a great sense of humour and made sure everyone involved got to see the plants and creatures during the jungle walks as it may sometimes be hard for everyone to spot the same small frog or tarantula. He brought us into the neighbouring village and immersed us into the culture of the Amazon. We played a 10 vs 10 game of soccer with the local kids too organised by Rodrigo which was a highlight as we loved it more than the kids.

    This was a really great time, lots of activities in a short time period. If you have the time, the longer tours offer a bit more, but if you’re short on time like I was this is ideal. We started the first day out by visiting a local tribe, getting settled at our camp, seeing monkey island (which was probably the best part) and seeing some other animals, then ending the day with a night hike. Day 2 started early so we had a chance to see the sunrise and some pink dolphins in the Amazon river, then a morning hike, and finally getting to fish for some piranhas (we even got to eat them). The lodging is basic but covers all the necessities, and you have a private bathroom. The meals were also pretty good. Overall I highly recommend this tour, our guide Edwin was very knowledgeable and knew the area well, and was able to answer any questions we had. The next time I’m in Peru I plan on doing the jungle survival course with him

    We had a great time in the jungle booked through Maniti. We were picked up from our hostel and brought to the office. Luckily we had packed everything we needed for the two days into a day pack so we left our big backpacks there (which was also suggested by the guide) - we would definitely advise to do the same. We then rode by mototaxi to the boat and from there cruises down the Amazon to visit the indigenous tribe and then went to the lodge. Our guide Segundo Mesia was THE BEST. His level of English was really good and he was super knowledgeable about everything. You could really feel the passion he has for his job and the jungle and he fully transmitted that to us. The lodging is basic, so don’t expect anything fancy, but absolutely fine. The prepared food was really really good. There is drinkable water in the dining room available at any time to fill up water bottles. Softdrinks and Beer can be bought on site. For the night walk our guide suggested us to have flashlights and no headlamps because of the mosquitos. We didn’t have one with us but our guide bought one for us for 30 soles. Overall the tour was amazing. Since we weren’t sure if we liked to be in the jungle we only booked two days and one night. But it was absolutely worth it and we felt safe at all times. We also feel like we didn’t miss much in comparison to the 4 day tour which includes another jungle hike, a visit to some alligator farm, a visit to a village in the jungle and one night camping.

    Can highly recommend this Maniti expedition! I was super unsure (mostly scared) whether I would like visiting the jungle but ended up having such a great time. Segundo Mesia was the best guide we could have asked for: super knowledgeable, funny and very passionate about the jungle. He was happy to answer all of our questions and went out of his way to make it a good experience for our group. Overall the tour was very well organized and even in the short time we managed to see/do a lot. Staying at the lodge was perfectly fine for the time of the tour, we loved the homemade meals from fresh food and that there was purified water available at all times at no charge. It’s pricy and may require some guts to decide to do it (if you tend to be a scared chicken like me) but it is so worth it, really feels like a once-in-a-lifetime-experience.

    This was such a great trip. Segundo Mesia was really knowledgeable about everything Peru — from insects to birds to plants to mythology and stories. He took us to all the great spots and we even saw pink dolphins playing in the water while the sun rose over the Amazon River. If you only have a short time but want to tour the surrounding areas of Iquitos, this trip is perfect… ask for Segundo!

    The guide Edwin , made this two day Jungle tour really worthwhile. He catered to our preferences of scheduling and type of activities. His knowledge of the jungle and experience, gave our jungle tour an added dimension. We highly recommend Edwin and Maniti.
