Our Team & Guides
Amazon Trails Peru (ATP) is passionate about the tropical rainforest and committed to protect the Amazon rainforest – we will take you on an exceptional tour of Manu.
ATP works with experienced, professional English speaking naturalist guides who have more than 15 years of guiding experience in Manu. Some of our guides have grown up in Manu, some of them are biologists and all have been working in research projects and living in the rainforest.
Our guides are very experienced in wildlife spotting, recognizing birds and mammals by sound and sight and they can imitate the animals to call them closer. Your guide will explain about ecology and biodiversity of this fascinating tropical rainforest. He will also provide detailed information about the animal species you will observe and give you an insight into indigenous peoples’ lives.
In 2005 ATP was the first company to introduce the use of binoculars and spotting scopes on our tours so that you can get a closer view of the animals, without disturbing them.
Our guides take one of the following spotting scopes on our Manu tours:
- Leica Apo Televid 77 mm
- Zeiss Diascope T FL, 85 mm
- Leica Televid, 65 mm
- Kowa TSN - 2, 77 mm
