There isn't a lot I can add to the other excellent reviews of Amazon Jungle Trips, Antonio Cruz and his family and the staff. In early February 2015 four of of us, two couples representing North Carolina, Maine and Colombia (we were joined by a lovely couple from Vancouver) spent 3 nights, four days in the company of our wonderful...

Never in our travels did I expect such well organised service in the middle of the jungle. Jungle trips cater for everything no matter what day you start your tour or how long you are staying. If you have time the 3 night 4 day trip gives you the experience of 2 lodges and 2 different perspectives of the Amazon.... More

I've spent quite a bit of time in jungles in the past mostly camping but my wife wasn't quite sure if she was ready for that so we decided on a more entry level trip to the Zacumbo Lodge for two nights. AJT offered a very good service from the airport onwards. All the staff were really friendly and helpful.... More

We did the 3 day tour as it was my first time in the jungle and I wanted a taster. It was great. The lodge was nice and well set out. Our guide grew up in the area and was very good. We saw pink Dolphins, sloth, monkeys, piranhas, alligators. The pace of the tours was great. One day we... More

I would recommend this tour company to anyone thinking about going to the Colombian/Peruvian sides of the Amazon but I wish I had known somethings going into it. As for the pros - the guides and service are excellent. The food is unoriginal but as good as you could expect for a jungle experience. Some of the guides we had... More

From the time we booked with Amazon Jungle Trips the service was good, and from the time we arrived it was excellent. We were met at the airport and taken to the AJT office where we met Antonio, who explained the trip in detail, gave us our insurance documents and organised payment. We were then taken to our hotel, where... More

We chose Amazon Jungle Trips based on a lot of research as we were nervous about travelling with elderly parents (my husband's dad is nearly 80 and has a heart condition) and although we are seasoned travellers, at heart I reluctantly admit to being a city girl who likes her luxuries and gets a bit daunted by nature and "roughing...

As a solo female traveling in Colombia's Amazon region it was the best decision to entrust my childhood dreams of seeing the wonders of the Amazon with Antonio Cruz's company: "Amazon Jungle Trips" which is an older, reputable tour company with years of doing good business with tours. I have carefully cross reference both Bradt and Lonely Planet travel guide... More

I went for 5 days with Amazon Jungle Trips to the Zacambu Natural Reserve lodge. The team in the office is very professional and takes all practical tasks serious ( like tranport,insurance,...)
