My friend and I had the most amazing tour with Efrain. He explained everything to us, was patient with us, and even fished to get our lunch. Please support this business and the amazing people in it.

We booked two of Akangau's tours: Route of Dreams and the Misahualli one. I can honestly say these were the best tours I've ever booked. The guide (Efrain) told us a lot of information about the jungle and shared personal experiences as well. He was very engaged with us and made sure everyone was as comfortable as possible. We saw the most amazing things. This really is a must if you're in Tena. Personally, I'm definitely coming back for more next year

Along with a group of 3 friends, I completed the 3 day/2 night tour of the upper & lower Amazon with a local tour guide. Our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the vegetation in the forest, including their uses as medicines or tools. We visited a cacao farm and walked through the process of making chocolate. In the end, we ate the chocolate that we had made together as a group. We also went tubing down a river within the jungle, visited a conservation center, and watched monkeys in the Monkey Island. This was all on the first day! My favorite part of the trip was a challenging and fun hike we did through 6 waterfalls on the last day. Other memorable moments include tasting lemon ants in the jungle and learning about the culture of the Quechuas, a large indigenous tribe in the Amazons. The accommodation is comfortable but does not have electricity or WiFi, but this is part of what made the experience authentic. The food every day was super tasty. Our guide was fun, engaging, knowledgeable. He always had the safety of our group in mind. This is not a trip for those who cannot tolerate the sight of bugs!
