Because I have some mobility limitations, I studied carefully to find the best option for a river cruise on the upper Amazon. My husband and I decided on an eight-day trip in Peru on the Cattleya during the rainy season, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. We chose a small boat, hoping that the crew would get...

I was really surprised how pleasant the Aria was. I loved the floor to ceiling windows that are in every room. They are completely unobstructed and so you have a great view from your room at all times. I have been on many ships with balconies and this is a much better design. For a small ship the food was...

We just returned from a 4 night stay aboard the Aqua river boat. I not being the adventurous type was reluctant at best to go on this trip. I was honestly surprised by the overall experience in a good way. First and foremost, the crew and the guides from the Aqua are AMAZING. They sincerely cater to your every need... More

We visited the Upper Amazon and Iquitos in 2014 and the Colombian Amazon and Leticia in 2015. Both visits were fascinating. In 2014, the Amazon was about halfway to its lowest point -- It drops about 20 feet over a year. In 2015, we were there as the Amazon was nearly at its highest point. On both trips, we were... More

Incredible it was, never thought I'd see the Amazon and now I was there. We were boating all day, went ashore to Peru, saw Victoria Regina second time in my life (the first time I was 15 years old), simply incredible experience

My wife and I spent a week traveling the upper Amazon onboard International Expedition's incredible riverboat. First, the pre-trip communications with Int Exp was flawless. Second, Int Exp did a great job from the time we landed in Lima to the time we took off from Iquitos. We were met at the airport right outside customs and accompanied the entire... More

We traveled the Amazon River with International Expeditions and the trip was incredible. We were on their ship for 10 days and each day we would go out in smaller boats for different adventures. We kayaked, hiked and explored the Amazon River. The ship was beautiful; the food was delicious; but the guides were out of this world!! They helped... More

Cruising the Amazon on the Delfin I was amazing. With a maximum of 8 guests on board, the service is personal and of the highest quality. The meals were of a standard that we have only had at the best restaurants. The staff couldn't do enough for you. Despite the fact we were up at 5.30am every morning to go... More

We spent 3 nights on the Aqua at the end of our trip to Peru. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience with good guides and great service from all the staff. When I had toothache, the onboard paramedic had a long conversation with me and provided the correct antibiotics by the next morning, which my home dentist was very impressed with.... More
