Yarapa River Lodge - WOW!!! We were looked after from a pick up at our hotel in Iquitos to being dropped back to the airport at the end of our 5 night adventure. Our naturalist was amazing and every day he would either find an animal or bird that we had not seen the day before. Ericson (Eagle eye Eric... More

My wife and I ended our 3 week Peru adventure on the Amazon river and I can't say enough about the M/V Aqua and her crew. The ship is amazing. Small in scale but elegant with clean modern lines and well maintained. Our stateroom with it's panorama window was just as nice. Cabin Service was an almost too many 3... More

We decided to end our two week trip to Peru with a three night trip on the Amazon aboard the M/V Aqua. It was an amazing experience and something we will never forget. There were 19 passengers on board and we were fortunate enough to get a great group of people which made the trip even more fun. The entire... More

Shortly after our LAN flight from Lima touched down in Iquitos, we were met by Daniel Vasquez, one of Aqua Expeditions original guides, who warmly greeted us and our twenty travel companions. He smiled and said "don't concern yourselves about the luggage or anything else from now until we say farewell. Just follow me and we'll head to Nauta where... More

We chose to go the Peruvian Amazon for the first part of our honeymoon in late April 2014 and booked through Rainforest Cruises. Miles and the staff there were very helpful in helping us to organise ourselves including the recommended flights to get to Iquitos where the expedition starts. When we got to Iquitos, we were met by the guides... More

This was the onboard saying, and it was so true. All the staff on board the M/v Avia went out of their way to make our 7 day cruise a memorable one. George, Rowland and Ricardo were the naturalists that rotated round the skiffs so that everyone could acquire their great knowledge and experience. They were exceptional. Our rooms were... More
