The only good thing about Flecha Tours is the food. They really offer a great variety and it tastes great. But apart from that there are no positive aspects about the trip. First of all they put all the people who want to go in a dirty Jeep. In our case we were 9 people sitting in the back! You... More

I wasn't supposed to spend my pampas tour with Mashaquipe (I had booked with Dolphin), but I was switched to the company and boy am I glad I was. It was a truly unforgettable experience, from the piranha fishing to the wildlife sighting, and also swimming with river dolphins and having squirrel monkeys invade your boat. Our guide was Ismael,... More

If you want to see: Black Caymans, white Caymans, capybaras, dolphins, monkeys, many birds, Anaconda, Sloths, pirahnas and very beautiful scenary without the difficulty encountered in the Jungle to spot them, you have to go there !! It's the Savana of south America

A well deserved 5* tour brought to us by Escorpian. Probably the cheapest tour we could find at 550 bolivianos. We stayed in an Eco lodge and were well looked after by our enthusiastic pampas loving guide toto. The food was yummy, plentiful, lots of varieties, catered well for vegetarians and vegans and lovely chef. Saw all animals advertised and... More

We did a two night three day trip with Indigena Tours and we were really happy with it. We went with Indigena because a friend recommended it, and specifically recommended her guide Tony. We didn't get Tony in the end, but we got Domingo who was a great guide! Very friendly, organised and enthusiastic. At the end of the tour... More

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

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