Testimonials

This 7-day tour is just right for us. The rustic accommodations were fine and warm. Your lodge is beautiful. Both Jose and Michael were great guides – both very knowledgeable and personal. The cook Hubert was very special – creating wonderful meals on a rustic stove. Never got sick eating or drinking the water, so Hubert was very good at preparations. The first William was a smart and cautious driver on the old road to Manu and with traffic.

And, then there is you and Eric…
Your Manu guide book was very informative while reading it on the river boat passage and reliving what you wrote at the same time and place. It is a timeless, just right length journal of your own Manu adventures. We liked all the activities you put together while exploring Manu yourself so many years ago. The Kapok tree stairs and platform was a wonderful way to end the adventure. I recorded a Toucan song and played it back to him – and he flew right to us on the platform to have a look.

The last day was a long journey returning to Cusco – but, did not diminish the overall fun adventure we had with our small group.
Thanks very much

I realize the “rustic” atmosphere is part of the jungle experience! The food everything was timely, delicious and creatively and beautifully served, quantities were overly generous. Nicolas was fantastic, very passionate about his work, so very knowledgeable, and attentive to our needs. We want t come back! We did not know quite what to expect…… next time we will be better prepared. When we return would like to visit the RESERVE AREA, we hope we can have Nicolas as our guide again. Also the book we received was very interesting and informative as well as humorously written. Thanks for a GREAT experience!

Terresa Gray

The food was incredible! Absolutely no complaints, food is not the main reason to take any trip to the jungle; but it makes it great overall when it is good, i cleaned my plate every time! Guide had great knowledge overall of rainforest in general. Very friendly and very patient with the crew. Organization and amount of tour mixed with rest time was perfect, even thaugh there was less sleep at times than maybe needs..

Tour de 5 dias y 4 noches

Mi novia, mi hijo de 11 años y yo tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer y aprender mucho del Manu gracias a un completo y apasionado equipo como el de Pantiacolla. Comenzando por la vision de Pantiacolla, liderada por Marianne van Vlaardingen. Una apasionada Holandesa que es desde hace muchos años lucha para conservar la esencia del Manu y el de sus pueblos. Esto quiere decir que ella no quiere cambiar cosas en el Manu, sino ella quiere vivir con lo que ya existe en el Manu. Esto incluye no solo defender los derechos de los indigenas en esta zona sino tambien vivir en harmonia con la zona.
Desde el primer momento que pisamos la oficina de Pantiacolla en Cusco nos sentimos bievenidos y como en nuestra casa. Ella tomo todo el tiempo necesario para explicarnos lo que significa hacer un tour por el Manu. Ella tiene una gran experiencia y conocimientos de toda esta zona.
Durante el via tuvimos la oportunidad compartir de estar con un fantastico, divertido y muy variado grupo. El grupo estuvo conformado por un Holandes que tenia 60 años que en su vida diaria es profesor de Frances y un apasionado fotografo. Una chica Argentina de 30 años que en su vida diaria es biologa, ecologista y a viajado por muchas partes del mundo. Y nosotros (novia de 30 años, hijo de 11 años y yo).
Nuestro guia fue Nicolas (biologo de profesion). El tuvo la paciencia de enzeñarnos a reconocer los diferentes animales que encontramos en nuestro camino, sus cuentos sobre todo lo que él a visto en la selva y con su buen humor hizo que la pasaramos relajados.
Tambien estuvo en este viaje presente Juancito, el chofer que nos llevo hasta Atalaya. Un conocedor del camino Cusco – Atalaya. Else detuvo durante todo el camino todo el tiempo necesario para poder ver a los diferentes animales que encontrabamos en nuestro camino.
Tambien formo parte del equipo Cesar nuestro conocinero que durante todo el viaje estuvo preocupado y atento que tuvieramos sufienciente comida y bebidas. La comida estuvo formada de fruta fresca, granola, yogurth, verduras, carnes, cafe fresco y todo lo que puedes esperar en un hotel y restaurant. Todo el grupo estuvo asombrado de la calidad de comida que recibimos con 5 dias!.
El ‘loco’ Milton en Herbert fueron los dueños del barco que nos llevo al Pantiacolla loodge. Dos personas con un buen corazon, alegres y grandes conocedores del rio.
Lo que hizo este viaje sea un poco ‘diferente’ fue que tuvimos la oportunida de hacer el tour hacia el pueblo de Shintuya. Esa mañna tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer a uno los ‘abuelos’ del pueblo que nos conto sobre el origen del pueblo y como poco a poco se fue formando en lo que es. En ese tour conocimos tambien a Walter y su padre Julio. Tanto Walter como Julio luchan dia a dia por conservar la historia, la magia y el conocimiento Shintuya. Ese contacto tuvimos la oportunidad de ir con Julio hacia una catarata. En el trajecto nos conto mas acerca de las curativas plantas que encontramos a nuestro paso. Tanto Walter y Julio son personas realmente para admirar. Nosotros estuvimos mas que agredecidos por haber tenido esta oportunidad.
Durante el via de 5 dias estuvimos alojado en el Loodge San Pedro y Pantiacolla. En San Pedro encontramos agua caliente y las facilidades para pasarla bien. En Pantiacolla no solo encontramos muchas facilidades sino tambien la paz que se vive en el ambiente. En este lugar pudimos avistar muchos animales.
Resumiendo: El viaje estuvo fantastico. Hemos regresado lleno de muchos recuerdos, experiencias y conocimientos. Nos sentimos cada vez mas comprometidos con el Manu y admirados por la vision de Pantiacolla . Todo esto no hubiera sido posible sin la ayuda de todo el equipo de Pantiacolla. En nombre de todos nosotros, muchas pero muchas gracias!

A number of years ago I participated in an Earthwatch volunteer trip to research hummingbirds. The hummers were spectacular and numerous. The lodge employees were easy-going and very helpful. We slept in elevated huts like lean-tos because the walls stopped short of the thatched roof ceiling. Toilets and showers were in a central building. The food was good and I can confirm there are 101 tasty ways to fix yucca ?.
At the time, Pantiacolla was very isolated. We were working, but I recommend it as a place to enjoy nature, wildlife and quiet.

Chiky is really good captain. Many times the meals where very special. Orlando knows how to cook. Our guide found so many animals for us.

For Orlando, the food was truly amazing every time. I think Rive knows really a lot, and was very good in showing. He also made a lot of effort to find wildlife ( this is also true for the boat captain).

Again i loved this trip.Thank you so much for providing this opportunity. I had an amazing time and an certainly in love with Manu.

Pantiacolla is one of the most beautiful places i have visited! Very special place and well looked after add hammock to new huts.
Excellent options and quantity, well done Emerson. Alex is a fantastic guide; very nkowledgeable and looked after everyone in the group. This trip surpassed my expectations. Manu is a wonderful place and Pantiacolla tours made my first visit to rainforest a life long memory. Seeing a Jaguar topped the experince off! Thank you to all and i hope to be back again.

Facilities are wonderful considering the enviroment. Beds are confortable. I slept like a rock.
Good job from the cook. The snacks throughout the day was very appreciated.

It is obvious that Fredy is passionate about his job. He has an incredible knowledge about Mtanu and knows how to share it. Best guide during my stay in Peru.

Michel was an excellent guide with very good english, broad knowledge of area, plants, insects, animals; very pleasant man just to sit and talk with. Very kind and caring, would make a great friend pointed out many things, we would have missed.

Great job by chef in making meals creative, interesting and tasty. Rive was outstanding, always felt we were in capable hands, great sense of homour.

The quality, expertise and knowledge of your guide and transport can make your trip. We were very fortunate to have a great crew that handled every thing so well and seemed to enjoy their work.

Cook and good provided was good every one’s needs very well catered for. Good guide with good knowledge and easily approachable.
Good activities and birding. Adding spicy sauce with the other condiments would be nice sometimes the boat didn’t slow down for an interesting bird, but other than it was an awesome trip.

JASON GRUBBA
17 November 2018

Orlando was a great cheff!! Very good.
Rive was so knowledgeable about eveything. He made us ful safe, answered all of our questions and gave us a great trip. We had an experience of a lifetime. We did not know what to expect of the jungle, but it exceed our expectations. All the service was great from our initial contact till the last day. Thank you for your profesionalism.

HELEN CERNIK
17 November 2018

Orlando is a magician! His Lomo Saltado was the best. We have had in Peru, his pancakes were our favorite breakfast. We ate like kings in the middle of nowhere.
Rive did an excellent job, his love of Manu and depth of knowledge helped to make our trip a great experience. Thank you for a great Manu experince.

MELI BISHOP

Michel was my favorite guide in Peru so far. He is knowledgeable and makes sure everyone is confortable, but is also patient, makes sure we all see the animals, birds and is friendly and funny. Thank you for a great trip!

MADELINE GRAHAM

How is it possible to serve such excellent food given the conditions it is prepared in?
Michel is wide ranging knowledge, personable and always up beat!

Thank you for making my experince in this unique part of the world, so enjoyed and memorable!
I heard about Pantiacolla from a fiend and will also spread the word!

RANDOLPH GRAHAM
17 November 2018

The food was excellent! ¡The food varied from the cultural peruvian food to many other types. When you leave the dinning room, you leave with a full stomach too.
If you want to know about the history, trees, plants, flowers, animals or culture about Manu ; the guides are the best option to ask on top of that they bring positive energy. This 5 days trip with Pantiacolla was really nice and definitely a highlight my trip of Peru.

VICTORIA PARIZOT
17 November 2018

I really loved Rivelino. He is a very dedicated and knowledgeable guy.
The trip was an exceptional experince so exceptional that i promised myself to come back in my life.

MONIKA
17 November 2018

The road was terrifying, but the driver skillful and experienced. We spoke Spanish, a little slower would have helped – I missed some things. Jose is very knowledgeable about both forest ecology and the social/cultural/historical aspect of forest use.
I will recommend the tour very highly to my friends. Overall rating: Excellent!

ROBERT COATS
17 November 2018

The boat trip was very relaxing. Nice to have a hot shower in San Pedro. Super rica la comida! Sometimes even too much food for me (not used to have warm meals twice a day and to eat meat/chicken/fish every day. The tour was in Spanish. Seems like our guide really knows every bird and every other anmial in Manu! He was able to find the smallest little insect to show it to us! Thanks for this amazing tour, I really enjoyed every day 🙂

JENNIFER
17 November 2018

We stayed in a beautiful lodge which was very well maintained and there were even hot showers! The food during the tour was great, I was pleasently suprised by the variety of ingredients given the location and difficulty of obtaining ingredients in this region. During the 5 and 7 day tour there was a hike included. I would have liked to have this hike included in the 3 day trip as well.

JAY SANGANI
17 November 2018

The transport was excellent and the accomodation was very clean and cozy. There was a great variety of food and the proportions were good as well. The guide we had, Michael, had a lot of knowledge and could identify birds quickly and spot them right away. The hike on the second day was great!

JAM QIV
17 November 2018

Great food especially enjoyed lots of fresh fruit and guacamole! Excellent guide, friendly, approachable + good explanations. Liked having book available to show pictures of different birds we saw. Overall an excellent trip, well organised, good pre-expedition info. Lots of info learnt from guide + from talking about Manu book. Would recommend to friends!

ERICA NEWBERY
17 November 2018

The bus journey out to Manu was a little treacherous, passing across some mountain road which was in need of repair! The boat journeys were great, giving perfect opportunity to see the birds & wildlife. The lodges we stayed in were all fabulous, starting off with the most basic & working up to the ´luxury´ Tambo Blanquillo. Those in the reserve zone definately allowed us to feel at one with nature. I was amazed at the quality and variety of food we were given over the 7 days, especially when we were staying deep in the reserve zone. We were definitely treated like kings! The guides were great, especially Nico with his enthusiasm and knowledge at the wildlife in Manu. Being in a large group of 7, it must have been difficult to ensure we all saw what we wanted to see, but Nico was very well organised. I thouroughly enjoyed my trip to Manu, it was a truely humbling experience, especially visiting the untouched reserve zone – it was so serene and beautiful. From the moment we left Cusco I felt like I was in safe and good hands, which allowed me to enjoy the experience more. Would have enjoyed more night hikes though. Will definitely recommend Pantiacolla to others, Manu has to be seen!!

LEILA DU TOIT

The food was very impressive given the conditions.
More guacamole would be good – everyone loved it.
Nico the guide, is fantastic in every way.
An experience we will never forget – Thank you.

JOEL RAFFEL

All 3 guides were excellent in their own way. Good variety of wildlife. Right amount of breaks – never felt like we were travelling for too long. Everything I hoped it would be!

VICKY BRAMWELL

Jose is a fun and knowledgable guide, the drivers we had were amazing.
I really enjoyed the tour, Manu is a magic place!

SANDY GRIFFITHS

The hikes + the catamaran rides on the river, as well as the bus rides were great! I had a wonderful time and learned a lot, many thanks!

ROBERT LUKE
17 November 2018

Loved the accomodations. Would hate to see it get an more western.
Very impressed with the quantity and variaty of the food. The trouble the cooks went to with just basic equipment + no refrigerators.
Loved Josés (guide) enthusiasm, like it was his first time in jungle. Also loved his humour. Never lost patience or intrest even when asked the same question for the hundreth time!

WALLEN CLINSTENSEN
17 November 2018

The quality of the food was good and more than enough. The guide spoke English quite well and had good knowledge of the surroundings. The trip was a unique experience in a unique rainforest. Besides the water supply in one of the lodges I am very satisfied about this trip.

REMO BREEHBüHL
17 November 2018

All drivers / boatman were very skilled, helpful and courteous.
Early in the season has fewer tourists, but also lodge etc. are not recovered from the rainy season and makes for flooded trails i.e. rougher trip, still beautiful!

MATTHIEU (AGE 9)
17 November 2018

The bus the first day was very uncomfortable.

The food was great, especially diner. The quality was good en there was more than enough. The sack lunches could improve though.

Our guide Darwin was very knowledgable and took care of everyone very well. In our group were also children. Perhaps not all activities are appropriate for all age groups, like birdwatching on the clay licks.

My favourite part of the tour was the walk we did in the cloud forest, it was lovely!
Would have been great if it was longer.

KAREN JOOKS
17 November 2018

Boat people were very helpful and considerate. Boat trips excellent for spotting wildlife etc. Bus was functional but didn´t contribute to the experience (while the boat did). Good to have a range of lodges and different places to see wildlife from. Pantiacolla had excellent trails, a nice dining area, info and bits of wildlife, an outside space to sit – all the facilities while still ´rustic´.

The food far exceeded expectations and chefs/service was first class! Most people would be happy to eat like this at home! Compliments to all those involved – Please thank them once more for us.

Manu is an amazing place and the tour provided an excellent range of activities to enable us to get a glimpse of what it has to offer.

KELLY MOYES

Everything was excellent during this trip.
The food, the transportation, the lodges and the guide.

MIMI TRAN
17 November 2018

The bus was comfortable and spacious but the ride to the cloud forest was very tough. The boat rides were great, it was nice to see the wildlife along the river. The boatman was very skilled.

The San Pedro lodge is what I imagined the accomodations to be like. The camp site at San Pedro was in a beautiful setting, and the rooms and showers were clean. The rooms at Camp Salvador were small though.

Our guide Darwin was great. He was excellent at spotting and identifying animals along the way, as well as explaining how the plants in the rainforest survived and competed with each other.

We travelled long distances to see a lot, but I would liked to have some more downtime at the campsites. Bu All together is was a very enjoyable tour.

MARK GELDAPP
17 November 2018

The bus was always on time and was very safe.
Accomodation during the trip was clean and well kept.
José our guide had wide knowledge and was always willing to help or answer questions.
The food was excellent.

JEPPE NIELSK AND LOUISE MADSEN
17 November 2018

The boat drivers were extremely competent and careful including in rainy conditions.The assistant boatman was very helpful particularly in taking us on the lake visit and helping us through the rivers. The bus driver was awful and we felt in very safe hands on a difficult road.

The accommodation was very comfortable and beautifully situated. The managers clearly looked after them well and they were always clean and neat.
Orlando is an excellent cook and we couldn’t believe what excellent meals he produced across the entire trip.

Jose, the guide, was very knowledgeable and generous in explaining things and lending binoculars and very patient with us trying to see things!! It was a privilege to have such a great guide.
We really enjoyed the trip and felt very lucky to see this beautiful area and be looked after so well.

DIANE AND ANDREW BARCLAY

He is very knowledgable which made it great. We loved how everyone went out of their way to make this an incredible experience for us. It truly was a wonderful experience and we are so greatful that you put this together for us. Thank you so very much.

Jose is a top notch guide. Very knowledgable. We saw over 100 bird species including a harpy eagle, 8 species of monkey, giant river otters, capybara, numerous frogs & lots of insects. Very satisfied.

GREG GRYNIEWICZ
17 November 2018

Our 7-day birding tour to Manu Cultural Zone was excellent, with the guidance of an excellent guide. Alex shepered us around with care, knowledge and an endearing playful quality. We saw over 200 species of bird plus assorted animals and insects. Ramiro, the cook, did a great job! His cooking was considerably better than the food served elsewhere.

PATTY NORTH
17 November 2018

Boat trips were excellent – driver (Ricardo) & helper were skillful and very considerate & helpful. Also slowly so that people could take photos – very helpful. The lodges were all excellent the staff at Pantiacolla Lodge were particularily helpful. Excellent trip. Would do it again and would have no hesitation in recommending the company. Was also impressed with the way Jose managed the varied interests of the group.

BELINDA FAULKNER
17 November 2018

Blanquillo had little privacy and the bedding was very musky and old smelling. Others were good. Always lots of food served. We certainly never went hungry! Overall, the food was excellent given the circumstances. The guide was very knowledgable about the wildlife in the park and was great at spotting wildlife that we would have watched right by. However, sometimes I wishes that he spoke up a little more, especially on the drive out to Manu. Overall, we find Pantiacolla to be very trustworthy and we enjoyed our trip to Manu Park.

LISA BLOUDEK
17 November 2018

More blankets and candles in San Pedro. I was very surprised about the food; I loved the soups. Nice job. The guide Miguel was very accommodating and enthusiastic. Good company too. I wish I had planned more time. I would recommend Pantiacolla very highly.

CRAIG SCHWEINHART
17 November 2018

Nicolas is a very nice person generous of his knowledge, aptient and attentive. The cook was excellent, doing miracles with food. For the boat: inform people (men in fact) that it is necessary to have a supplementary shoe to go into the river… Thanks we had a good time in Manu!

MARTINE COULOMBE
17 November 2018

San Pedro gave a feeling of being in the heart of the jungle. Darwin and Miguel have an excellent knowledge of the jungle and its creatures and were at all times helpful & enthusiastic. It would appear that it is necessary to have a guide present for longer treks as visitors do not have experience of handling jungle conditions and like our 3 got lost.

JOSé MIR
17 November 2018

Excellent and fast ride home in truck. Never change or improve the lodging -Just right. I wrote on the form that I hate bananas, and yet bananas were served to me. Why? Guides were very knowledgeable about birds and animals, but not a lot of cultural or botanical information was discussed. Not everyone wants to identify 150 species of bird. However, the guides were excellent, they were just not able to answer some of my questions, and I had a lot.

BRANDON MCELROY
17 November 2018

Alex Duran’s knowledge of Peru’s birds superb. Ability to find birds almost uncanny. A really great way to experience the Amazon and its wonders. Thanks so much!

The entire adventure was wonderful! Thank you so much for providing this opportunity to see Manu. Please recomment our boat captain (Chucky) and his crew, Carlitos aswell. They are a wonerful team. Nico is also a super guide. Very knowledgable and thorough, kept us informed at all times. Best night sleep ever at San Pedro!
