“Excellent Tour, super guide”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We booked our tour to Kuelap with Carlo after talking to about 7 other travel agencies. We wanted to be on an English-only tour since most of times, if the guide is bilingual he gives a HUGE explanation in Spanish and then the 2-sentence-version in English. We figured something out with Carlo, where we paid a higher price just in case the tour wouldn't fill up, but he'd pay us back if enough people showed up who were keen on an all-English-tour as well. In the end we paid 40 Soles each.
Carlo is really knowledgeable and a funny guy as well. He explained everything about the ruins and always made sure everybody in the group was doing well with the altitude. Our driver Alex was also good and we never felt unsafe on the road, even though it's quite a ride to Kuelap. We spent about 2.5 hours at the ruins and then had lunch at a Restaurant in María (excellent trout!). Carlo also gave us loads of info on airplane schedules, buses, laundry, good places to eat/drink, etc. He's really a nice guy, we'd go with Amazon Expedition again.

“Perfect”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Carlo was excellent. We really enjoyed the excursion organized with him. It was fun trekking "into the wild". His agency is prefectly located in the heart of Chachapoyas and one of the cheapest too. The service was perfect! We really recommend their tours and guides!

“Great Guys!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We visited Kuelap last summer (July 2012) with Manuel but had several interactions with both Carlos and Manuel, and our experiences with them were great! Kuelap was beautiful and Manuel was very knowledgeable. He answered our questions well and explained many intricate features of the ruins, including the local plant life. I am not terribly fluent in Spanish, but I understood Manuel's Spanish very well. Carlos is a fluent English speaker. They have established a great agency, they are great guys, and they really love what they do as guides. I highly recommend using this agency when you are hoping to travel in Peru slightly off the beaten path. :)
