We ended up booking with this company because our friend recommended it. We shopped around and found that it was the cheapest. Most of the time, cheaper isn't better, but with our recommendation we went ahead. The guy st the office was very professional, spoke very good English, and gave us faith. We have allergies, which we were told would... More

Cannot fault this company. Great experience. We swam with wild dolphins, went pirhana fishing. Saw sloths, huge crocodiles, onkeys, eagles and snakes. Food was awesome and guides spoke great English. Highly reccommended. Been travelling for 12 years too so I don´t just accept any old company. Indigena really looked after everyone.

Indigena is a *good* company - their accommodations are clean (cleaner than many) and some of their guides are perhaps the best in the pampas. But I'm really not convinced on a lot of what their value add both as a tour agency and one that is 'eco.' Just a few comments that were not addressed by the company or... More

Hi there. we are a dutch couple, we did pampas 27-29 january with indigena tours. We were the only two in the group that date. I remember that the 27th night the ecolodge wasn´t flooded yet and we didn't have any problem to finish the tour. The 28th, another group of just 3 people arrived to the indigena lodge (a... More

When I booked a Pampas Tour at Rurrenabaque with Indigena Tours, I was looking forward to a 3-night 2-day stay in their Eco lodge. I would, acccording to their brochure (and the booking agent) enjoy swimming with Dolphins, fishing for pirhana, and boat trips along the river admiring the flora and fauna.I was particularly interested in the fishing activity.I paid...

Firstly, Indigena were well priced and had received many great reviews here on TA and also from a few other travelers... More

Had a fantastic time - Indigena is well worth the extra money over some of the cheaper tours. Our guide was Choco, we always felt safe, he was full of information and had a great sense of humour. Accommodation was fine, some might find it a little rustic but for backpackers it was perfectly adequate. The food was very good... More

I spent my last 3 days (8 to 10 March)in South America in a lovely country, Bolivia. I wanted to visit a place that all my friends suggested to me: the Pampas of Yacuma River. But before the trip, I heard and read lots of things about the flooding, but I got correct information in the agency of La Paz.... More
