“Best Amazon Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

If you want to have a authentic Amazon experience Gerson is your man. We had a fantastic time and felt extremely lucky to have Gerson and Frank as our guides. They are very knowledgeable about the area and provide a great service. We loved the way they picked us up at the airport and also helped us book a boat to Leticia. I would highly recommend doing this trip if you want a grassroots experience. It is also really good supporting local people rather than big company! Thanks Gerson and Frank!

“Amazon adventures”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

Went with him in March 2011 and he was brilliant for all the reasons that have been outlined below. His cousin Lobo is the local shaman as well and is more than happy to talk through the medicinal properties of the amazon and treat you as well if you're interested. It did wonders for my eczema whatever he made me drink!

What ever you're thinking about the Amazon then email Gerson and ask. You won't regret it.

“Nice expérience with ayahuasca ceremony in kapitari center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Me and my friends had a really great trip in the kapitari center, it was a unique experience and i recommend it to everyone who wants to discover ayahuasca. We didn't hesitate en puting our trust in them becquée they know what they're doing and they're reputation can tell that! The shaman Luis Culquiton Is AMAZING, we loved the ceremony in the jungle. Also, we went to do a tour in the jungle and we've seen soooo much type of animals and bugs that was so interesting.

“What an adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

I agree with a previous reviewer that this experience is not for the faint of heart or the traveler expecting luxury. However, if you want a once in a lifetime experience with great guides, then this is the trip for you. Gerson met us at the airport, but we had Kid and Olean as our guides. They were awesome- so willing to make this a great trip for us. We saw dolphins, had monkeys in our boat (one actually jumped onto me from the trees), held a boa constrictor, and had an epic trip hacking through a small tributary to get to a lake to look for caymans. There is electricity for only 3 hrs a day, and the accommodations are very rustic, but none of that mattered. The food was prepared over wood stoves, and was very good. It was an experience we will never forget!

We had a ridiculously awesome experience in the Amazon. The food was great, the lodging was adventurous and the activities were super cool. Gerzon and the rest of his staff are GREAT knowledgeable guides.
