recommendations of Magnificent adventure in Manu
We spent 4 days / 3 nights in Manu with Andean Great Treks. We wish we could have stayed longer, but that's all time allowed, but we still love the experience. The pickup was perfect on time, the bus was very comfortable and the trip to Manu park is long but fun. During the trip, you will get enough stops at nice places! You will see hundreds of hummingbirds during this trip! The accommodations themselves were simply amazing. Imagine sleeping in the lodges in the middle of the jungle with (bug-proof) sleeping with all the sounds of the jungle. Truly amazing experience! The lodge itself is very clean, well maintained and above all has a very nice shower! I wish I could sleep with the sounds of the jungle every day, such a special place. Day/night activities are a nice variation of jungle walks, boat rides, visits to the clay lick early in the morning (to see the magnificent birds). Sailing on the amazon rainforest river with all the sounds of the jungle and beautiful views was such a peaceful, truly wonderful experience. Our guide Willy impressed me so much, his eyes could spot animals so easily, very impressive, worth every second and penny to stay a little longer and let him create this jungle bubble for you.

recommendations of Best Walk to Machu Picchu!
To start, the one day express trek to Machu Picchu is some of the most excitement and activity that my wife and I have ever packed into a day. We were very impressed by this entire operation. Elmer has everything from start to finish fine tuned. Every single transfer and detail was figured out and transitioned nicely so that all you have to worry about is enjoying the Inca Trail and taking in Machu Picchu. There were other groups on the same hike with a lot of people that did not have nearly the same intimate experience as we did. They try to keep the groups between 2-4 people to maximize the experience for the hikers and personalize the pace of the hike which we were incredibly grateful for. Our guide, Gilber, had such a great attitude, was a wealth of knowledge, and had answers for every question we had along the way. I think the one thing that I didn’t find in other reviews and didn’t fully understand prior to booking was how the fee structure is broken up for this trip. I initially had sticker shock, but after seeing what goes into the entire experience, you wonder how they can do it so cheaply. As a breakdown - The AGT team picks you up from your hotel in the morning and drives you ~1.5 hours to the train. The train tickets are around $60 depending on when you go. The permit to hike on the Inca trail is only sold to guide companies but from just doing some quick googling, they’re around $80. The ticket to enter Machu Picchu is $45. Then you add in the porter that brings your delicious lunch to the halfway point, a full time guide, a very nice dinner in one of the most expensive towns in Peru, a bus ride back Cusco, and personal taxi back to your hotel you realize that it is worth every penny (or soles)! It is an early start and late finish, but I would recommend it to anyone. Buy the ticket, take the ride!

recommendations of Una experiencia unica en el Manu
Este viaje fue espectacular! Los animales, la comida, el alojamiento, el transporte en los botes y autobuses, los guías y las actividades fueron increíbles, Gracias a Andean Great Treks todo estuvo perfectamente planeado Edson, nuestro guía, estaba muy bien informado, era adaptable y ayudó a que el viaje fuera tan bueno como lo fue. Realmente apreciamos su capacidad para adaptar las actividades a nuestros intereses al incluir caminatas adicionales para encontrar más animales, ya que estábamos muy entusiasmados con esto. Fue hermoso ver tantos animales como nosotros en sus entornos naturales. ¡La comida fue muy rica! El personal hizo un gran esfuerzo para hacer de las comidas una experiencia cultural y nunca decepcionó. Si no tiene miedo de ensuciarse las manos y está interesado en una aventura con animales, hermosos paseos por la jungla, deliciosa comida y alojamiento en medio de la jungla, ¡este es el tour para usted!.Fue toda una aventura que no olvidaré, y por eso, me alegro de haberlo hecho.

We booked a 4 day trip to Manu National Park with Andean Great Treks. From the briefing to the return to our hotel, the whole team looked after us very well. You could tell they thoroughly enjoyed what they were doing. The chef made a variety of delicious Peruvian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's hard to imagine a better guide than Fernando: he was SO knowledgeable about the region and everything we saw - his enthusiasm was so infectious that he made things like ants and tree bark exciting. We came to visit Manu National Park with very low expectations, but we went home with impressions. Thanks to the crew we were able to observe a great diversity of wildlife. The range was from countless birds to insects and mammals. My personal highlights were the macaws clay lick. The variety of scenery from the road into the deep jungle was also impressive. I am very happy that we went into the jungle with such an experienced team. All in all, a truly impressive Manu experience with diverse landscapes, delicious food and lots of wildlife.

recommendations of Best Natural Wonder
This Amazon jungle that preserves its life culture and is full of wild animals is recommended for any wildlife lover. I traveled to Manu in November with Andean Great Treks and they filled me with great joy by showing me this natural jewel. Honestly, we had some fear before to book with them but once in Cusco we met Elmer the manager of this agency who was very friendly and he cleared all our doubts and questions. Also, we met Ricardo our guide one day before our trip starting. And the main reason we booked Andean Great Treks was Elmer told us that they provided job to local people and during the trip we realized that.

recommendations of La Selva Amazonica de Cusco
El viaje que realize a la selva de Manu fue muy buena. El Parque Nacional de Manu cuenta con muy buena vista, cerca a las trochas para avistar diversas especies de flora y fauna. La atención A1, alimentación balanceada y sabrosa, los lodges cuentan con electricidad en determinadas horas del día. Además, se aprende bastante sobre la gran biodiversidad del Amazonas, de hecho, que volveré otra vez a esta hermosa región del Perú. Después de Machu Picchu, este es un lugar que no deberías dejar fuera de tu itinerario en Sudamérica.

recommendations of Paisajes bonitos, mucha  flora y fauna!
Maravilloso lugar, cálido por el trato y acogimiento. Los lodges son cómodos y con actividades de inmersión en la selva amazonica. Ideal para desconectar el lado racional y acelerado de la ciudad y conectar con tu lado intuitivo interno. Pude observer muchas especies de aves, arboles gigantes, lo mas resaltante del viaje fu eel paseo en la balsa por la laguna Machu Wasi, disfrute Tambien la caminata nocturna. Senti que el tiempoo paso volando, junto al major guia de Manu, Thomas. Valio la pena decidirme por este viaje a la selva de Peru, muchas gracias amigos de Andean Great Treks.

Tuve la oportunidad de visitar el Parque Nacional de Manu, apreciar la belleza natural, la tranquilidad que se puede apreciar a simple vista, lo importante de la flora y la fauna hace que sea un lugar único y especial en todos los aspectos. Pude sentir como mi corazón se desconecta un momento de todo y sentir lo marvilloso que es explorar un mundo completamente distinto al que conocemos. Aún con las cosas mas simples, todo puede cambiar en un segundo. Muy aparte el servicio de calidad y profecionalismo que brinda el personal. Fue una experiencia indescriptible. Lo recomiendo en su totalidad, estoy segura que visitor el Manu Jungle, no se arrepentira!!!

recommendations of Visita el Manu, todo un Paraiso!
Yo junto a mis amigos visitamos este lugar unico en el Cusco, no sabiamos mucho sobre el atractivo natural, pero Elmer nuestro asesor de viaje fue muy bueno al brindarnos toda la informacion. Durante el corto tiempo que duro nuestra expedicion, pudimos apreciar muchos paisajes de los andes, bosques, aves, insectos y reptiles. Nuestro guia Tomas, un gran tipo, super informativo. Las caminatas por los bosques son una pasada, simplemente me enamoro todo, nuestro chef El chino, un admirable professional, nos deleito con los mejores platillos del peru. Definitivamente los recomedamos ir con Andean Great Treks.
