Amazon Tours - Adventure Life Testimonials and Reviews

Incas and Rainforest

Ronald Dietz (Peru Adventure!, Apr 2016)

Excellent, well-run operation. We were very well taken care of and very much enjoyed the trip

Galapagos Multisport

Constance Block (Galapagos + Amazon, Apr 2016)

I could not be happier with my Adventure Life experience, from beginning to end. I travel a lot, and I think your company and personnel do an outstanding job. I truly appreciate your professionalism, attentiveness, and flexibility. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company and would be happy to serve as a reference.

Machu Picchu by Train

Diana Reiser (Peru Adventure, May 2016)

I was amazed at how great the guides were and what a treat it was to have everything arranged. Everyone we came in contact with from Adventure Life were so helpful and friendly. It was an incredible trip thanks to all. Kassi and Kate did a wonderful job of getting us everything we wanted out of our Peruvian Trip!

Peggy Singleton (Peru Adventure!, May 2016)

Edwin in Cusco was an excellent guide. Very accommodating (stopping to look for birds) actually brought a bird book to help me in my passion. Made sure we were able to climb Huyana Picchu, one of our goals, by preparing us on hills and steps. Nancy did not feel confident to do the climb so he gave her acceptable alternative and accompanied me. Both my sister and I were impressed with how Edwin and Lima guide kept all visitors to the rules. Edwin was not inclusive, ready to help out other tourists. We thought he was great. Also, Ericson on Delfin was an excellent naturalist. Thank you to the Deflin for not leaving us when we were late. Would love to do Inca Trail with friends with Edwin as guide. Thank you.

Wendy Fletcher (Peru and Ecuador!, May 2016)

Excellent organization. Wonderful guide, Giovanni! He was very pleasant and very willing to accommodate any changes we wanted to make. We have had a great experience and we will certainly recommend Adventure Life.

Matt McMullen (South America - Trip of a lifetime!, Dec 2015)

Frankly put, everything about the trip was fantastic. It was truly the trip of a lifetime and Adventure Life's planning made all the difference in the world.

Wild Tambopata

Troy Coberly (Wild Tambopata, Jun 2015)

Everything went as planned. Had the time of my life. The only thing that I would suggest is that you need an extra night in Lima before you get on the plane home, to clean up and get your gear cleaned..no matter how hard you try, you still smell like a 10,000 year old rain forest...

Ecuador Adventure

Evan Leibner (Ecuador Adventure and La Selva Lodge, Aug 2015)

Great trip. Adventure Life did a great job of adjusting our trip since our itinerary needed to change with the eruption of Cotopaxi. Our Naturalist guide and local guide were both great at La Selva lodge.

Sacha Lodge

Wendy Fletcher (Peru and Ecuador!, May 2016)

Excellent organization. Wonderful guide, Giovanni! He was very pleasant and very willing to accommodate any changes we wanted to make. We have had a great experience and we will certainly recommend Adventure Life.

Bobbie Thompson (Sacha Lodge, Sep 2015)

Just a wonderful experience..everything was exceptional. Guide, Fousto was the best..we will miss his smiling face!

Nancy Braun (Sacha Lodge, Nov 2014)

Everything was just great!!!! Eduardo was amazing!!!! Giovanni (Cotopaxi guide) was great and so was the hike. We were very lucky and had a clear day. Everyone made it so easy for us. We loved Sacha Lodge and the people were great. Thank you!!!!

Andes and Amazon

Jane Wright (Andes and Amazon, Ecuador, Oct 2014)

Well, we’ve arrived back in the UK after an absolutely fantastic holiday in Ecuador to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.

It would be impossible to pick out our favourite parts of the trip – it’s all given us such a wonderful taste of Ecuador, but we’d love to go back to the Amazon, the Rainforest and have a go at the summit of Cotapaxi.

We were so touched by the celebrations that you and Betty organised for us at Papallacta. The wine, card and chocolate pudding were lovely, and the waiters made sure we had a wonderful evening – not difficult when you have 24 hour access to the fabulous hot springs! It was so thoughtful of you, knowing it was a celebratory adventure, thank you very much indeed.

The accommodation throughout the trip was superb, and we felt very spoilt! We did a lot of travelling, and this was a great opportunity for us to see Ecuador. The itinerary worked really well, and we can’t think of a single thing we would change – except to go for longer next time! Adventure Life is a really excellent company, but only because it has people like you and Betty in Ecuador, working together to organise fabulous adventures for people like us.

We can’t talk about our wonderful experience without mentioning our guide in Ecuador – Giovanni. He’s a perfect guide – cheerful, endlessly helpful, informative and ... Read All

Aqua Amazon: Luxury Amazon Discovery

Roy Fruiterman (Aria Amazon Cruise and Machu Picchu, Mar 2015)

The attention to detail, and the feeling of security we had while we were with Adventure Life staff and guides, is unparalleled. Your guides are passionate about their homeland. Their love for the Amazon, the Andes, and the people therein, is contagious and exhilarating.

It was a wonderful trip! The guides and local staff were always on time, knowledgeable, good company and flexible to our needs traveling with kids.

Jennifer Martin (La Selva Lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon, Jul 2015)

Had a great time - our guide Andreas was very informative. enjoyed pirhana fishing at the lodge. The community visit was an interesting experience - we all ate the larvae and attempted the blow dart.

Amy Lam (The Galapagos Islands and La Selva Lodge, Feb 2015)

Erin was great in helping me plan the trip. Her suggestion of going to the Amazon PRIOR to the Galapagos was spot on. The local liaison was extremely helpful and everyone on the ground in Ecuador was wonderful.

Cynthia Doerr (La Selva Lodge, Nov 2014)

I wish I could give the La Selva food additional stars!!! Oh, and the grubs from the local village were awesome grilled!

Cotopaxi Trekking

Susan Richardson (Galapagos Cruise on the Galaven + Amazon and Cotopaxi, Nov 2015)

Loved it, loved it, loved it. The ship in Galapagos, the Galaven, was perfect size (20 people), food was spectacular, and, of course, the scenery couldn't be better. The trip to the Amazon, with Roberto was life-changing. I've traveled all over the world, and he's the best guide ever! Also loved trekking in the Andes.

Angelito: Eastern Islands

Jennifer Miller (Huaorani Lodge and Galapagos Cruise on the Angelito, Nov 2015)

If 'eco' is your thing, Then Huaorani Lodge is the one for you. I can not fault any aspect of this trip, the journey there is a trip in itself, (still grinning from the Cessna flight), our guides were wonderful, the accommodating is brilliant (considering you are in the depths of the rain forest), the food outstanding and you just have to keep pinching yourself because you are in the Rain Forest with the Huaorani. A humbling and wonderful experience, visit whilst you can....it might not be there for much longer! Galapagos is a must if you have the time/budget our stay aboard The Angelito was brilliant, immaculate boat, spacious cabins, hot showers, great food, lovely crew and our guide was a font of knowledge and twinkly humor. Highly recommended!

Celebrity Xploration: Southern Islands

M/V Anakonda: Ultimate Amazon

Alice Friedenson (The Ultimate Amazon, Mar 2015)

Avel Coquinche (or Coguinche) and Robby Delgado are the best guides we have ever experienced. Avel is Kichwa, grew up in the jungle and somehow made it out. After majoring to be a guide in a university in Ecuador, he was sent to the U.S.A. to learn English. He is fluent in Kichwa, Spanish, and English. He imparts with great pride the customs and knowledge of his people from showing us medicinal flora of the jungle to demonstrating how to create a roof or a basket from palms as we hiked. Robby grew up on Quito, is very cosmopolitan, learned English in London. They work well together as a team not only imparting their knowledge of flora and fauna, history, and science, but also catering to our individual desires. I held a wooly monkey and kayaked several times, including the day other tourists left and came. My husband and Avel fished and enjoyed photography from the motorized canoe while I paddled a kayak feeling I was a real explorer. Trips to a community, a school, and a home were wonderful, giving us a better understanding of the indigenous people.
