My partner and I did a 7-day jungle tour with Fredy.
At Pilcopata, his lovely mother Rosario joined us to be our cook for the next few days.
We visited the Limonal ranger station and the private reserve of Blanquillo. We slept three nights in a tent, one in a basic room in Boca Manu and two nights in Pilcopata at Fredy's nice, little Lodge.
We really enjoyed our tour with Fredy and his mother!
Fredy is a very knowledgeable guide. As he grew up in the jungle he knows a lot about the nature/wildlife in Manu Nationalpark and also about the culture of the native and the andean people. Despite the circumstances with little kitchen equipment, Rosario served us very, very tasty and rich meals every day!
Sometimes we felt more on a camping trip with friends than on a guided tour, we had a lot of fun together.
Fredy speaks very good English, he is reliable and very cautious. He is open minded and we had very interesting conversations.
During the planning of our jungle tour, Fredy was very patient and he tried to design the tour to our wishes and budget.
We can really recommend Fredy as a guide to Manu Nationalpark and the surrounding jungle.

Thanks a lot for the unforgettable time!

We went on a seven day trip to the Manú Reserve and it was the perfect start to our Peru Trip! While our guide Fredy operates the company by himself everything went flawlessly from beginning to end. Fredy speaks very good English and has a lot to explain about each animal, the different cultures in the jungle and the jungle itself. He is also the best spotter and spotted the most impossible animals. You can definitely tell he has grown up around the jungle and knows what he’s doing and where he needs to look! We saw a lot of different species and Fredy made the greatest effort to accommodate all our requests and get the most out of our time in the rainforest. If you want a truly unique experience with a great guide go with Greenland Peru! And the food his mum cooks is just delicious ;)

I went with my family on Fredy’s tour, 3days/2nights. We are a family of five and it felt like we had a private tour with Fredy. There was only one other lady joining and it was nice to have such a small group. Fredy came to our hotel a few days before our trip to explain the program which was nice. On the first day, Fredy picked us up at the hotel and started explaining a little background history on the villages we crossed through. The first day for us mainly was driving toward the jungle, spotting some beautiful bird and learning more about the rainforest. Fredy was born and raised in the jungle and has some really interesting stories to tell. The first night we stayed at Fredy’s house. This is what you want to experience if you go to the jungle. The sounds if nature, open air shower, offline, not a possibility to charge your phone… how it should be! The second day we made some intensive hikes. Fredy knows a lot about the trees and insects we saw. We also made a nice boat trip on the amazone and did a night walk. We saw ants, frogs, caterpillars and some beautiful butterflies. On the third day it was unfortunately raining to hard so we couldn’t visit parrots lick, however we did spot some monkeys and even a snake! Fredy really did his upmost to spot the animals. Finally, the food was amazing. Fredy’s mother really managed to serve a 3 course dinner in the middle of the Jungle. To conclude, it was a wonderful experience.

P.S. don’t forget mosquito repellent

We took a 5D/4N private tour to Manu with Fredy in August. In just one word, the trip was fantastic. It was easily one of the highlights of our month-long vacation in Peru. Fredy is the epitome of friendliness. He is attentive, knowledgeable, and professional.

Accompanying us were the cook (Fredy’s mother), the boat driver, and his assistant. Every single member of the team was delightful. The food was great and tailored to our diets. The riverboat was comfortable, safe, and fast. During our trip, we stayed in three different lodges, one of which was Fredy’s. All the lodges were clean and comfortable.

We did various jungle walks. Thanks to Fredy, we saw many animals and learned a lot about the flora and fauna. Manu is awesome. Some animal encounters were simply incredible. We especially loved the night walks, which were thrilling and unforgettable.

What really stood out about Fredy's approach was his adaptability. He tailored the trip perfectly to our preferences and wishes, ensuring we had an experience that was both authentic and personal.

For anyone looking to immerse themselves in the genuine, non-commercialized essence of the jungle, Fredy is the one to choose. From planning to guiding, everything was impeccable. The 5-day tour left us wanting more. 😊

Having backpacked for 4 months so far in South America, I can definitely say that my trip to Manu National Park with Fredy the guide is probably one of the best things I’ve done.

As a guide, Fredy is kind and considerate, wanting to ensure that his guests have the best trip and explains everything fully and clearly, easily switching between Spanish and english and also accommodating my low level of Spanish by speaking slowly.

His knowledge of the jungle is awe inspiring. Having grown up in the communities living in the jungle he has an immense knowledge of the flora and fauna and can easily identify insects, plants and birds and spot them from great distances. He prides himself on providing an authentic tour which doesn’t exploit the jungle, the animals or the people who live there. Every animal we saw was in its natural habitat and living freely. His respect and passion for the jungle is incredible and it refreshing from other tours I have taken where guides know enough to give a tour but do not have a burning passion for educating others about the jungle.

He also has a great knowledge of the native communities in the park and is conscious to explain both the positive and negative aspects of their lives, it is interesting to hear a local perspective.

Fredy is curious and engaged with his guests and really wants to understand you and your culture as well. He is not just a tour guide but someone who becomes a friend within that short space of time.

As a vegetarian the food cooked by his mum, was incredible and ensured I got to eat authentic Peruvian cuisine. She adapted recipes and created wonderful dishes.

I feel very lucky to have picked this tour and I hope others won’t hesitate to reserve a tour with him! I hope to come back to Peru, so I can do a longer trip one day soon.

Another successful expedition !

We really enjoyed our tour with Greenland Peru to Manu national park. We chose to take a tour with Fredy because it seemed like a more personal than most other tour companies, and that turned out to be absolutely true!
Fredy came and picked us up at our hotel. Since we were the only ones that booked the trip, we had a private tour. During the tour he told us a lot about the animals, plants and people living in the jungle. He has a lot of knowledge from growing up there and learned a lot from his dad, who is also from the jungle.
The first night we slept at Fredy’s own lodge and for the second night we took a boat deeper into the jungle and stayed in a lodge there. The last night was in Fredy’s lodge again. All the days his mom did cook a very good lunch and diner for us.
We took several walks into the jungle to spot animals, including a night walk. We ended our tour with a visit to a native community.
We would highly recommend visiting Manu national park and taking the tour with Fredy! We think that him growing up in the jungle gives extra knowledge that other guides may not have.
We believe that because he grew up in the Jungle himself, he can give a unique experience.

This was such an amazing trip! Fredy knows so much about the jungle and loves taking you to see the most beautiful flora and fauna. We stayed at his place on the first and third night, in a separate guesthouse which was so beautiful! His mom cooked for us and the food was absolutely amazing. You can tell that this are genuine lovely people who do everything in their power to make sure you have the best time possible. They're not commercial at all and are so caring. And we saw a tapir! Definitely a highlight of my month of traveling.

I did a very last minute solo trip with
Greenland Perú. 3 days and 2 nights.

Fredy, the owner and guide really knows his stuff when it comes to the jungle and it's very impressive. He can tell you the name of nearly ever bird, bug and tree that you come across - having grown up there.

We visited one of the local communities where Fredy explains their way of life and it can be really interesting to learn about the different cultures.
The night walk was my favourite by far - we first took a raft over and spotted a lot of birds and then when it starts to get dark you walk through the jungle with your wellies and lantern. That night we spotted cane toads, tree frogs, orb spiders, scarlet macaws, a lot of moths, nocturnal monkeys, a false coral and a Margay. And this was during rainy season!

Next time I'd go for a full week and I'd take my whole family. The jungle is immense and beautiful.

The trip was amazing! Fredy (the guide) is the best in making sure everything is cared for. He is an honest, funny, and very interesting guide which you will have a lot of fun with!

Everything in the trip is kind of non-touristic which means you dont go to places where they feed the animals. We still saw a lot of animals though, Fredy knows where to look and you always need some luck ofcourse.

Also thanks to his mum who acts in the background as chef of the trip and made sure we had a lot of nice meals!

We would 100% recommend Greenland Peru!

I could not imagine a better end of my Peru trip. If you come to Peru, don’t skip the Amazon and book a tour with Fredy. The most amazing, funny and authentic guide I ever had. The jungle is his home and you immediately feel that in everything he says and shows you. His knowledge about the jungle is impressive. I learned so much and saw so many fauna and flora I never saw before. I never felt unsafe, with Fredy you are in good hands! Be ready to be immersed in a jungle trip full of stories about the native communities, the fauna and flora and even a swim in the Amazon river! Thank you Fredy, I will actually miss you and your jokes. The first thing I do when I come back to Peru is booking a trip to Manu with Greenland Peru!💚
