We were really looking forward to this tour- we were collected by the owner Abbott, he wasn't overly friendly and I was not used to his approach- he didn't seem to have great tourism skills he actually came across as quite rude. I held my breath and waited as I did not want to ruin the experience. He brought us by taxi were we got the boat to our lode, the tour guide we met was Marcus he seemed slightly better and made more of an effort but seemed distant. The boat ride was magical upon arrival a real picture- we were shown our private room which was a short walk from the main lodge area, the room was large and it had it's own mosquitoes net over the bed. We met back at the main area and had an impressive lunch before we departed for monkey island (We took a boat here)- it is recommended that even in soaring heat you should cover from head to toe as we walked through the jungle to see the monkey's - we were lucky to come across one little guy (also brings lots of repellent) -Marcus engaged in conversation and answered questions as asked - it seemed very production line like. On the way back to the lodge we were lucky to see a 2meter camine crawl into the water. When we arrived back to the lodge I felt quite uncomfortable with the staff almost- I felt like we weren't wanted in the lodge at all . We came back and met with another group who arrived the night previous. So essentially the only guests were me my partner and three others in the whole lodge the rest was staff. Before dinner we all joined together and Marcus brought us out on a night walk to see some animals and /insects that come out at night this was enjoyable (you will need a head lamp for this) we were given wellies for this although the puddles were so high the wellies were soaked. When we returned we were given once again a serious meal- the food was faultless- there is a limit on electricity so you have to charge phones etc within time frames- the lights turn off circa 9a.m. The sleep was an experience it was cool listening to all the insects and wildlife sounds outside- we woke at 4a.m to see a majestic sunrise on the boat to go see clay pigeons- we came back for a wonderful breakfast and then got ready for our full day excursion from the lodge. We took the journey to Lake Sandoval ,where our entry to the Tambopata Reserve "Lago Sandoval "in a walk of about 1 hour, then reach the lake where we take a canoe paddle it is very hot take lots of sun cream and wear appropriate cloths (cotton long slieve shirt- hats cover your skin the sun is very very hot). Then at noon we took lunch in another lodge on Lake Sandoval. We got to chill here after lunch there was great hammocks to relax. When we arrived my partner opened his wallet to purchase a drink, he had it tucked in his bag the night before when we left the lodge to go for a night walk. He noticed that money had been taken from the wallet, not wanting to jump to conclusion we analysed it and said that money had definitely been taken- he went to Marcus and reported it. He handled the whole situation well and remained calm we did not want to cause a huge scene as it was only a small amount but it was the fact someone had went through our cloths. He investigated but notting came out of it, his words were I work with these people but I can not guarantee that someone that i work with would not steal he could not guarantee that - he seemed genuinely annoyed. We were happy to leave it but the good of the whole trip was gone. We eventually went back to the lodge, Marcus said there was no problem if we wished to shower before we were taken back to our overnight bus in Puerto Maldonado. However, when we arrived back at the lodge the manager would not give us any towels and was extremely defensive and said we dirtied the towels the night before- we did not wish to cause a scene but he seemed to want to throw something at us in defense. I said I didn't want a shower and said if I was the type I would have caused a scene in front of the other guests that arrived that day but I was happy to leave it. I was extremely annoyed how everything was handled- they were very rude and money was stolen. Marcus seemed very annoyed with how his colleagues treated, the manager was shouting very loudly at Marcus I was a little afraid to be honest and stayed away I just wanted to get out of here Marcus was a great guide, the tour is well organised the food is great, the lodge is lovely- everything was faultless on that side****the hospitality on the behalf of the staff is terrible they are rude and do not engage well with guests. When we met abbott again at the port he brought us to the bus, he shrugged off everything- everything was handled poorly. Marcus seemed the only genuine person here who took control of the situation.

My wife and I stayed at Tambopata Amazon Lodge for 3days / 2 nights. And it was the highlight of our Peru trip despite the fact that we were coming straight from Cusco after having seen Machu Picchu! We were expecting a thrilling ride but what we got in the end surpassed all our expectations. We had Jonathan as our guide for the entire trip and he's a pleasure to be around. He is super knowledgeable and extremely patient with us "turistas". For the untrained eye, wildlife is hard to spot because of how well-camouflaged they are in their natural habitat. But Jonathan was able to track down a host of fauna ranging from tarantulas to caimans and red howler monkeys. My wife and I were able to get some amazing shots thanks to his patience and persistence. For that we are grateful. The accommodation at the lodge was basic but that didn't really matter because of how action-packed our days were. Plus it had all the amenities we hoped for - a comfy bed, clean toilet, mosquito net and the ambient sound of the jungle surrounding the lodge coming alive at night! Thanks for the amazing memories, folks!

We did 5day 4nights with Tambopata Jungle Tours and had a great time with our guide, Marco, who helped us see monkeys, macaws, caimans, otters, toucans and lots more. We went canoeing, fished for piranhas and ate fresh fruit from the trees. Our private bungalow with hot water was lovely and the food was delicious. Highly recommend and great value for money.

Our visit to Tambopata Amazon Reserve exceeded our expectations thanks to our guide Johnathan. The accommodation is very basic with only a few hours a day of electricity, however that didn’t bother us as the day was fully taken up with outdoor activities. The meals served were plentiful and tasty with a Peruvian mix. All the activities were scheduled, ran on time and we were guided by three very passionate and knowledgeable guides who were only to willing to share their culture as well. In all, we had an amazing time and would have loved to have stayed longer if time permitted and we would not hesitate to recommend this company, the area and guides especially Johnathan who brought the Amazon to life.
