The trip was terrific. In a short period of time, we got an incredibly varied and rich introduction to the Peruvian Amazon. It was extremely well organized and very efficiently conducted. The schedules for each day's activities were well thought out with a lot of variety built into the schedule. The small boat trips we made each day to spot wildlife were easily the most memorable together with the terrific spotting ability of both the guides and the motor operators so we could see and identify what we observed. It was also a nice touch at the end of the boat trip to go over with a map and bird list checking off all the places we stopped and what we saw and did. I really liked the two times we did early morning excursions before breakfast.

If I have to choose the most memorable part of the expedition, I'd say that my greatest thrill was seeing the abundant wildlife that our knowledgeable and keen-eyed naturalists helped us to find: a hundred plus bird species, nine kinds of monkeys, twelve kinds of frogs, sloths, snakes, caimans, lizards and more. Pink and gray dolphins appeared on all the waterways we traversed. The trip far exceeded my expectations. It wasn't even as hot and buggy as I had expected in the tropics.

This trip exceeded our expectations! On our personal "enjoyability" scale, we compare it to our trips to Galapagos and Antarctica. Our Expedition Trips contact, Joy Martinello, is quite knowledgeable and her responses to our many questions were always timely. We very much enjoyed working with her.

Absolutely outstanding! It is hard to pick from such wonderful outings as to which was most memorable: piranha fishing, frog hunting, a visit to a shaman, swimming in the Amazon, kayaking, bird watching, a sunset visit to a lake with giant lily pads, a baby cayman and a large hairy tarantula, and a visit to a local village and school where we got to play with the children.

Very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating naturalists. They really try hard to locate wildlife and I was amazed as to how they find the animals sometimes. Keep in mind this is NOT Africa. It's the jungle. Animals are hiding and do not (for obvious reasons) want to be found. Most birds and monkeys are up in the canopy. Staff was superb from restaurant to room! Joy is so knowledgeable and patient all the time. The coordination was impecable. Very pleased.

Both Joy and Amanda are a delight to work with, I have booked quite a few trips with ExpeditionTrips and I have always found them to be both available and patient in answering what must seem to them my never ending questions. From start to finish they thought of everything. The hotels were deluxe and the small ship was beautiful. Every cabin had a small outside deck with sliding glass doors and chairs to watch the Amazon go by. The cabins are compact, I was in the solo cabin and never felt cramped.

The expedition leader, Dennis Orsorio, and the 2 naturalists were extremely knowledgeable and willing to share their information. They had an infinite amount of patience when they sighted any wildlife in helping us to locate what they were seeing. We did visit a few of the native villages, one with school children who we met and interacted with.

Our time on board Delfin II was fantastic. We really appreciate the hard work and dedication of all the crew who were always polite, attentive and friendly – thank you all! The little touches, such as Tomas’s artwork with the towels each afternoon, and my boots coming back cleaner than when I bought them will also be the source of great memories. We also appreciated the musicians – especially as it was at the end of a long working day for them.

Very well organized trip from beginning to end. Food was beautifully prepared and presented. Luis helped us with our special dietary needs. Chino was a motivated, enthusiastic guide who clearly loves his job. The rooms were always clean and fresh. The barmen were great and the entire ship was comfortable and like “home”. We shall recommend Delfin II to everyone. Thank you.

The Aqua was super. The cabins were luxurious even with a third body in residence. Really interesting and friendly traveling companions – no one as young as D but one family had two daughters 20 and 23 who made a big fuss over D. The naturalists were very fine and the food absolutely gourmet. The chef always sent someone to ask if D wanted to eat the set meal or something less fancy. The highlight of the trip was a skiff boat outing on the Pacaya River.

What can I say? It was awesome! We went in July of 2013. The weather was great (upper 80s). The water level had already receded about 12-15 feet, so treking into the jungle was great fun! We saw anacondas, caimans, sloths, monkeys, dolphins manatees and birds of every type. The staff went beyond my expectations in every way. The cruise director (Anna), the guides (Ricardo, Naycer, Jorge, and Roland, the dining room attendants, the room service, were all top notch! I grew up in Las Vegas where there are more 5 star, 5 diamond restaurants than anywhere on the planet, and I promise you that I have never had any food better than what they served on the Aria! It is truly a must do trip!

The trip fully met our expectations. Excellent balance between down time and exploration. The most interesting part of the trip was the canoe rides. The experience of the guides made all the difference with their amazing levels of knowledge about the rainforest, animals, botany and culture of the Amazon. Our accommodation and meals were excellent and the crew members gave 100% every step of the way.

What a wonderful trip – more than I expected! Everything was just right – our walk in the forest, seeing birds and wildlife, plus our guides were very, very knowledgeable!! The crew members were very kind, helpful and always had a great attitude. The guides knew the flora and fauna, river system and medicinal plants. It helps that they are from the region and have first-hand experience. I can’t say enough about how good they know their job! I would like to return someday and do your Dry Season tour.

We were surprisingly pleased with our 4-night trip aboard MV Aria. The guides were outstanding. How they managed to find wildlife hidden (to us) high in the tree tops while the skiffs were cruising at 20 knots is amazing. The food was likewise excellent, emphasizing local Peruvian fresh foods. I’m now a convert to camu camu. I wish I could get it at home. The accommodations were also first rate. Lying in bed, watching the world go by through the huge picture window was a wonderful experience.

Ashton, from ExpeditionTrips.com, was very helpful. I would book again! I was inspired to take this trip because we had the desire to see the eco-system of the Amazon River. With that said, the trip met all of my expectations. The crew was excellent and the guides were especially good! The most memorable part of our trip was seeing the variety of birds and mammals.

ExpeditionTrips inspired us to do this trip and the trip exceeded our expectations! I appreciated my Program Manager for providing me references on the Manaus trip we originally were looking at. Because of that, we ended up on the Peru trip. For us, especially my 75-year old sister, it was certainly better. I am sure this fitted our needs better.

You were great to work with. You set up a great itinerary, with three different segments in Peru: Amazon Cruise, Posada Amazonas and the Sacred Valley. Each segment was operated by a different agency, but to us, the changes from one segment to another were seamless. There was always someone to meet us and transfer us to the next venue.
