Acerca de nosotros
Amazon Trails Peru is committed to do real Ecotourism. We have our own vehicles and boats as well as experienced staff. As we operate all Manu tours directly we have good control over their quality.
You will spend most nights of your tour at our lodges, Rio de Oro Lodge and Maquisapayoj Tapir Lodge, in double rooms with private bathroom. Camping options or expeditions are also available.
With more than 10 years experience in operating Manu tours we have constantly improved our service and itineraries. Itineraries are flexible enough to maximize your chances to see wildlife and our guides will do their best to show you the marvels of the rainforest.
ATP works hard to limit the environmental impact. We return all waste to Cusco, buy local or peruvian products wherever possible and avoid buying tins or other material that is difficult to recycle. We recommend the Manu Biosphere Tour, which requires less boat fuel.
Working in Manu also means to work with local people, our boatmen and lodge staff are from Manu. We want to help build consciousness about the importance of the rainforest and promote rainforest conservation.
We work with experienced, english speaking naturalist guides with many years of guiding experience in Manu. Most of our guides have grown up in Manu and have been working (in research projects) and living in the rainforest. They are very experienced in wildlife spotting, recognizing birds and mammals by sound and sight. They can imitate the animals to call them closer, as well as giving you the scientific names of the animals we see.
For further information about our guides see below.
We use binoculars and telescopes so that you can get a closer view of the animals, without disturbing them.
Our guides take one of the following Telescopes on the Manu tours:
- Zeiss Diascope T FL, 85 mm
- Leica Televid, 77mm
- Kowa TSN 2, 77mm
- Kowa TSN 1, 77 mm
- Kowa 37 TSN, 77 mm
- Kowa TSN 500, 68 mm
Our office is situated in San Blas, Cusco, only 3 blocks from the main square ( Plaza de Armas). From Plazoleta San Blas turn left into Calle Tandapata, it is only 200 m to our office.
Our guides are bilingual (English/Spanish) and on request we can provide guide tours in German and Japanese.
