Totally grateful to Hector Vezirian and his Amazon Explorer agency. It was a blessing to find such a professional agency. I went with my friend on a wildlife tracking expedition for 15 days. This trip is not your typical tourist trip and the truth is that I was pleased by the organization and professionalism of the explorer team, led by Hector, who accompanied us on this adventure. They are true wildlife experts; they could see, hear and smell the animals of the jungle, and it was shocking to see how keen they were at pointing out animals hidden in the shrubs or at far distances. We saw many species of monkeys (about 10), alligators, lots of birds, insects, river otter, 2 snakes (one poisonous), frogs, iguana, pink dolphins, two-toed sloth, tarantula, scorpion, ocelot, tapir, and we found many fresh footprints of jaguar (though we didn’t get to see it)! It was wonderful. I am really very grateful to the Amazon Explorer agency, to Hector and to his entire team of native explorers. I RECOMMEND IT!

My partner and I traveled through much of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil, Ecuador and Colombia. We contacted Amazon Explorer to make a 30-day expedition to an unexplored place in the Peruvian jungle. Hector, the owner of the agency, attended us with kindness and professionalism found in few, he also promised to guide this expedition for us. This was a special expedition in an area where no tourists go. In my opinion, I have never enjoyed nature and wildlife so much, it was amazing! Given the conditions of this expedition, due to the unexplored terrain and the number of days (30) it was very well organized. We recognize the professionalism and knowledge of the jungle that Hector and Amazon Explorer team have, they were incredible. A great team.

We have just returned from an incredible 14 night trip in the Amazon Rain Forest with Amazon Explorer, which has easily been the highlight of an amazing trip to Peru. In the remote locations during our expedition, we saw a wide variety of wildlife, including many birds, monkeys, anaconda, caiman, and even an anteater. Thanks also to the native experts and especially to Hector who could track and find the animals deep in the jungle. The food was always plentiful, with 3 meals each day. They really went the extra mile and took care of our every need. Unforgettable trip - well worth the price!

The best company and guides with the greatest knowledge of wildlife, AN INCREDIBLE TRIP! We explore the Amazon jungle for 10 days with Amazon Explorer. We saw a quantity and variety of fauna, thanks to the experience and knowledge of Hector and Dennis. We went to a remote area, where we didn't see any tourists during our entire trip. The organization was excellent, considering the remoteness of the place where we were, the varied and delicious food, and the activities were amazing, both during the day and at night. Thanks to the knowledge of our guides, we were able to see many animals such as the tapir, the peccary and even an ocelot. At night we waited in silence in the clay licks deep in the jungle. We absolutely recommend this company. We wish to return in a few years for an adventure of more days. Thanks to the entire Amazon Explorer team!

We went on a 5 day private camping expedition in Pacaya Samaria national reserve. The first night we slept in a cabin in the little jungle village of Buenos Aires, the other three nights we camped in the wildernis. For us, it was an adventurous, fun, safe and authentic Amazon experience!! Our team consisted of our guide Tito, local guide Lorenzo, cook Lourdes and captain Segundo. They were all very lovely and took great care of us. Tito en Lorenzo made sure we saw as many animals as possible. We saw an anteater, many monkeys, dolphins, a sloth, otters, crocodiles and much more. Lourdes’ food was very good and more than enough. Segundo took great care of the boat and for exploring, we took many boat rides on the canoe. We also did some short hikes, but due to the high river season most of the explorations were done by canoe. We went on exploration trips 3-4 times a day depending on whether we had to travel also. The first trip was before breakfast and started early (5:30-6:00), after breakfast followed a jungle trek, after lunch another canoe trip or trek and every night a night trek! The team always asked for our preferences, so the trip will be customised to your wishes and needs. The day after our trip Tito also took us to the Belen market and floating houses in Iquitos to show us around there, which was impressive and a must see to really understand Iquitos. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this trip with Amazon Explorer!
