Sergio understands how a well organised tour looks like. Spending three days in the Amazon are combined with a lot of meals, a lot of means of transportation, a lot of knowledge from the guide, a good translator and much more. Amazonas jungle tours manages all these variables very well to give their clients a wonderful experience. Everything went according to plan and we had the best time.

Our guide Esteban and tolk Jimmy were a great duo, who added value to everything we did. The initial organisation phase with Sergio also went flawless and in a very pleasant way.

We would definitely recommend booking a tour with this company!
Thank you,
Charlotte, Madeline, Valentine & Anton.

My wife, 9 & 11 year-olds, and I had a wonderful experience with Esteban (indigenous guide) & Tiffany (translator). We’re very satisfied w this company: began trip discussions w owner, Sergio, 6 months prior and all that was promised, actually happened. Saw many pink dolphins; great trip through flooded forest; staff very caring of our kids, especially while tromping through jungle. Staff willing to alter plans to suit our interests. Sergio works very hard to ensure clients have a wonderful experience.

We highly recommend this trip. First we would like to thank Sergio for organising the trip. He did a wonderful job in arranging everything perfectly. From the welcoming at the airport till the farewell. He arranged good materials and a perfect lunch for a start after which we had a great boat trip deep into the Amazone to Puerto Narino. There we were welcomed by our guides Daniel and Jamie. Daniel is born and raised at the place and spotted all kinds of animals from a great distance. Also Jamie has her roots in the Amazone and is a strong and enthusiastic woman who adjusted the program to our wishes at all times. Both were very pleasant people who really made us feel at home in the jungle. The program was very well filled and they both brought us to beautiful places, getting us connected to nature, seeing the pink dolphins and learning us a lot about the place, the plants and the animals. They were there for us all the time and did everything to let us enjoy our stay. When we came back to Leticia, Sergio had arranged everything for us, like arrangements for PCR tests and boarding passes, so it was easy to go back to Bogotá. Thanks a lot for this wonderful experience.

We tried to book a tour through Sergio, the owner of Amazonas Jungle Tours, using his WhatsApp and email, and starting around a month before we wanted to go. But the communication was very poor and he failed to provide details or confirmation until a couple of days before, then tried to fix some quite particular airport arrangements that did not work for tourists who had already in the area.

We had to put together our own tour with local guides at last minute, which actually went pretty well and was quite a bit cheaper than Sergio's package. But it was a pain when we thought we had something set up.

So I can't speak for what it's like if you end up on one of his tours. Other reviews suggest people have had good tours with this guy, and even well organized tours. But our experience shows it doesn't always go well, so if you book with them and it's starting to feel flaky I'd suggest trying somewhere else (or just arranging it yourselves when you get there, which was really easy in Puerto Nariño especially).

I think it was alot of money for what you get. I would have liked something to eat when I first arrived but nothing and could not get anthing as everything was closed. When getting up early and everyone was hungry we have these guys selling something to you all the time and do not give you a moments peace from the boat trip to when you arrive eating your breakfast. All the info is in recepción.one trip was 45.000 pesos which was part of the hotel which I feel was way too expensive for what it was. I was expecting a experiance of a life time this trip did not do that for me. The trips were good but way too short. Its just my opion
other may say its money well spent

After reading all the reviews on Sergeo we were very excited for our tour of the Amazon but I'm saddened to say our experience with him was terrible! Sergio seemed to be on his phone constantly through out the trip organising everything last minute, we weren't told a initial plan of what we were doing and when we were told it seemed to change a lot. Not that I'm usually fussy with accommodation especially when your in the middle of the jungle but The first lodge close to Letisia we stayed was of a very low standard , there were 2 stray awful looking poor puppies eating the soiled toilet paper in the toilets and no one cleaned it up the entire time we were there, we never shown the facilities and the place smelt of rotting meat and dog poo. we were offered a night tour but because of Sergeos lack of organisation we didnt get there untill after 8 pm and after dinner we were all exhausted. Then they thought they would bring the "wild life " to us which included an anaconda with a bleeding tail that lived in a polystyrene box in the corner of the room with a brick on it a boa and a couple of frogs also housed by them .Sergio said that scientists were using them for research but because two of our group was spanish speaking he asked the lodge worker and the real story was that they were "pets" so they can show tourists. We realised that Sergeos translations were often un honest and he seemed to base the tour on sex and cocaine. Monkey island was the first stop after the boat ride on the second day and that is pretty much a zoo owned by a major 5 star hotel, again we were all disappointed as we came all this way to see the real jungle. When we got to the second lodge at the village it was 5 pm and we had been on an unstable boat for majority of the day and again exhausted. I thing every one agreed that we should of been taken to the village shortly after getting of the plane rather than doing the rest of the activities Sergio organised. The Family from the village that does the guiding cooking and organising was fantastic they did everything they could for us. i think that Sergio needs to translate better about the village and the importance of the jungle to the people, we learnt a lot about the culture and the wild life from Pablo a guide from the village but only because two of our friends in the group did all the translating for us whilst Sergio was busy with the other group and on the phone and telling stories about 12 year olds having sex And males getting to pick what ever girl they like ,we understand that that sex is a part of there culture but there are many other things we all wanted to learn and Sergio made the village people seem like un intelligent sex perverts which was not the case. unfortunately only had one day in the jungle which we were expecting at least 2 and a half. We didn't see as much wild life as we expected due to the short amount of time at the village we were left with. we were thankful for the time we got to spend with Pablos family and the village we stayed at. All in all i think Sergio and his family are in it for the money and getting the village people to do all the work and he is using the language barrier to his advantage. When we mentioned our dissapointmet to the company they didn't want hear it . Terrible company great village !

Sergio Rojas runs this enterprise with his sister Andrea and their forever smiling employee, Edwin. If you're looking for an unforgettable experience that takes you away from the standard tourist fayre, then look no further. This was a humbling and eye opening experience for me, leaving me in gratitude to Sergio, Andrea and the wonderfully hospitable and accommodating tribe that played host to us for four days. The 7 de Agosto community that forms a part of the greater Cocama tribe was reached after a long boat ride up the Amazon. The tribes folk couldn't have been more welcoming as we were embraced by everyone we encountered. We weren't treated as a novelty or a curiosity but simply accepted into their ranks as if we were one of their own. We fished for red and black piranha with them, rowed up tributaries with them, trekked through the jungle with them, hauled canoes overland, got chased by cows, climbed trees, met the first ever Amazonian policeman (called Canas), spotted pink dolphins, encountered bright green foliage enveloped lakes, literally stepped into Peru and then jumped back into Colombia, ate dinner with them, sat and laughed with them and felt as far away from the cosseted, pampered and sterile world from which we had come as was humanly possible. We made friends, we leant the local words for ferocious fish, we taught them the English words for scatological endeavours. Over the course of three nights I exchanged my duty free rum with a local gentleman by the name of Willington Vasquez, who dutifully reciprocated my gestures with an indigenous concoction of pure alcohol called Chirrinchi, that had been fermented in a plastic container with herbaceous roots known as Chuchuguazu. Drinks were shared with a village elder called Paturro. The food was cooked up every night by two women called Lucero and Nuria and served communally in a large hut. We ate all manner of fish (piraboton, caracolero and cucha) and even ventured into the realms of jungle meat one night when we sampled their equivalent of wild boar (Guangana) and a local species called Boruga. The Mayor was a 23 year old man of serene temperament by the name of Riley whose energy levels were staggering. Juaco was the boat driver who continually sported the biggest smile even when the heavens opened and he got soaked while we guiltily sheltered under the canvas cover. Carlitos, Chilo, Pablo and Niko were the young guides who helped us every step of the way. We stayed in our own hut owned by the family Tenazoa Ramirez who did their utmost to provide us with the basics we needed.
One afternoon whilst venturing into the territory of the neighbouring Yagua tribe, my wife and I happened upon an inter-tribal womens soccer game. After watching for a minute or two, we suddenly found ourselves pulled onto the pitch and allocated to opposing teams. I hadn't played a game of soccer for years and very quickly found out that my years of lethargy and sedentary lifestyle had caught up with me. These women were taking it seriously though. I was covered in mud and after a few minutes the skies opened and an Amazonian deluge started …. but we kept on playing. Filthy and soaking wet …. it was as much fun as I can remember having … well, … in years.
And that was the essence of it. It was basic but wonderful. After a couple of days there and just hanging out with the Sergio, Andrea and the people from the local community, you realized that you were having the time of your life.
It was the people and the lifestyle and the fact that it was so different to anything I had encountered before and that they had so readily accepted me into their community. To get up at sunrise and sit on a branch next to a man who speaks no English and between the two of you manage to ably communicate, was something special.
By the time we were due to leave the community it was Christmas Eve and we were the only remaining foreigners in the village. Just the two of us. We had to be up before sunrise at 5:00 a.m., as we had to catch an express ferry down the river to get back to Leticia. As we walked with our bags from our hut to the centre of the village, it seemed like everyone had gotten up. The kids were playing, Willington Vasquez looked hung-over, the women were preparing coffee and cutting up fruit and the young men were standing around waiting to take our bags down to the small boat that would take us up the tributary and to the point whereby we could join up with the large ferry. I really did leave with a lump in my throat as the boat pulled away from the riverbank and we waved goodbye to the community. We motored a few minutes out to the estuary and tied the boat up to some reeds as we waited for the bigger boat to arrive. As we sat there on Christmas Eve morning, the silence was only punctuated by raindrops pattering on the canvas roof of the vessel and a gentle breeze causing the water to lap at the hull. It really was a time for reflection. What a simple life and what beautiful people. I looked over at Willington, who was our captain that morning and he smiled back. The biggest, rum soaked smile you could possibly hope to receive in your life and at that precise moment, although I was sad to be leaving, I don’t remember ever being so content.
If you have initially started to research trips into the Amazon and then come as far as the end of this review, then you simply must undertake a tour with Sergio and I can only hope that your resulting experience is as fulfilling and humbling as mine.

On the upside, the local guides know the jungle very well and were nice guys. Puerto Nariño is a nice and quite an authentic ‘eco’ village, safe to walk at night. 

The key complaint we've got is that they force you to go for 4 days minimum, but if the tour would be better organised it could easily be done in 2 days. The things went very slowly from the beginning, so actually we lost almost the whole day getting to Puerto Nariño and another one coming back. In addition, the experience they offer gets repetitive - i.e. a walk through the jungle, with good and detailed explanations what different plants are used for (though do not expect to see many animals); a visit to an indigenous village (although the village can be called indigenous, do not expect a traditional settlement in which Amazonian tribes used to live, it rather consists of wooden houses, similar to the ones in Puerto Nariño, but more rustic), finally a boat trip and dolphin watching (again most of the time you see the dolphins, but they are quite far away). The accommodation is super basic, and has no area to chill out and enjoy the nature. To make it clear, it isn’t a lodge in the middle of nature, but a rustic house in the middle of an Amazonian village, lacking the basic facilities, such as mosquito nets. 

All in all, this tour is definitely no value for money. We were quite shocked to realise that the reality was so much out of line with the previous excellent reviews they got on Tripadvisor and the high price they charge. This tour made us wonder whether we are just getting old or Sergio’s company became the victim of its own success. Given that we enjoyed a lot the rest of our 3-weeks stay in Colombia, even if at times it was a bit rough, we tend to believe it is the latter :).

Hello! Thank you very much for your review and honesty. We would like to give you an answer. Regarding your claim, that the tour is very slow and you lose a lot of time to arrive and get back we would like to clarify, that Puerto Nariño is a 2 hours boat ride away from Leticia. The boats only leave from Leticia at 8am, 10am and 1.30pm. And from Puerto Nariño to get back to Leticia at 7.30am, 11am and 3.30pm. We can’t change this schedule and we also have to consider the flight connections. Also it is necessary to go to the office upon arrival to give the boots and rain coats to the tourists and make the payment. The last day again, we have to consider the flight connection and tourists might want to see something of Leticia. Also we created some new tours of 2, 3 and 4 days, where the whole itinerary of the tour is explained and the tourist can choose the one that suits him most. Because we don’t want our tourists to feel they are paying for time, without doing anything. Regarding the visit to the indigenous community you have to understand, that the indigenous people put on “normal” clothes and improved their life form in wooden houses. But they still preserve their ancestral life form, habits and traditions, to be able to live in the jungle with very little technological resources. What we offer is an experience to get to know how the communities in the Amazon live today, because we don’t want to sell you a show with persons disguised as indigenous. As we want to show you the real Amazon and not some kind of show also makes it impossible for us to control the animals and nature. We can only show you what nature offers us. Normally we offer a night in a cabaña at the riverside in Tarapoto. Maybe you were not able to go there because of the low water level. But when it wasn’t possible to go to Tarapoto we offered a camp in the jungle, sleeping in hammocks. The tourists had the option to choose between sleeping in hammocks in the jungle with mosquito nets or staying in the hotel in Puerto Nariño (where mosquito nets are not necessary). The whole team is sad, that your stay in the Amazon with us was not as you expected. A majority of our clients leave very happy and with a real vision what the actual state of the Amazonian jungle and his inhabitants is like. Unfortunately some medias like Discovery Channel distort the vision to give people an image they want to see. We understand your disappointment and thank you for your critics, which helps us to improve our service and the information we give to our clients in advance.

Thank you so much translator Michelle and guide Pedro. You made our Amazon experience incredible. From seeing the sloths (thanks for climbing vines like Tarzan into the canopy Pedro), monkeys, pink dolphins, caimans and many many spiders, frogs and insects.... to taking an impromptu sunset boat trip, to eating freshly caught Piranha, the whole experience was amazing. Don't get me wrong, it was hot and at times uncomfortable and there were many plants, animals and insects that could harm or kill you around every corner. But we felt safe and in great hands at all times. A particularly big thank you to our guide who so patiently answered all our questions, took photos and put up with our terrible dancing. Probably my only suggestion would be to include a little more interaction with the indigenous people in the village we stayed in over night, if this is at all possible. It would have been great to find out a little more about the people that live there. My lasting memory is leaving that community around 5am, heading out on the small boats as the sun rose over the trees and a strange, eerie mist floated over the water. Apparently this only occurs for a short time each year. Beautiful.
