Simple jungle lodge in a spectacular setting, offering a flexible and varied programme of excursions.
The simple Eco Amazonia lodge in the Tambopata region consists of 45 individual bungalows, each with a balcony and hammocks. All rooms have en suite cold water shower and toilet; lighting is by kerosene lamp.
The lodge is particularly flexible about the excursions it offers, and will suggest options suited to the capabilities and preferences of each guest.
The surrounding jungle is very impressive, the highlight being the nearby Cocha Perdida lagoon, reached by a 6.5km trail through the rainforest. There's also an observation platform an hour's walk away which allows you to peer into the treetops and see the birds and monkeys that shelter there.

Highlights? :The Vistadome train journey to Machu Picchu and visiting the ruins themselves.ME, Maidstone
"It is difficult to pick out just one experience from such a plethora of new ones. There was so much to see and absorb in Peru which was fascinating, but Machu Picchu must rate very highly in our list of memorable events on the mainland as must the whole Colca Canyon experience including the drives through the Highlands to Chivay."ND,
Inca Trail: This was an incredible experience. The guide/porters were extremely helpful and knowledgeable.DH, Aylesbury
“The food in Brazil and Peru was amazing. This was unexpectedly the best foodie holiday we ever had.”NV, Bethnal Green
Highlights?: Visiting Machu Picchu and climbing the mountain. The hot springs at Colca Lodge. Seeing the condors in the Colca Canyon. Trying to walk 100yds at almost 5000m. :-)MP, London
Highlights?: Both the Inca Trail and Puerto MaldonadoCR, Morden
I really liked variety on this trip - amazing culture, history, nature all in one trip. Machu Picchu tour was great, excursions in rainforest were very memorable.
Highlight?: The train journey to M Picchu and seeing M Picchu - absolutely awesome and I got a seat on the left of the train (for best views!). The tour of the Salt Flats and journey to San Pedro were stunning too. Really good tour guide during this part. Hannah at JLA was a great help before and during the holiday. She made it possible to visit on the desired dates (e.g. so I could go on a star gazing tour in San Pedro during a change in mood cycle). Always replied promptly to my emails. Especially appreciated little extras - e.g. being on the left of the train to M. Picchu for the best views, being allocated window seats on planes, etc. All this meant I could really enjoy the scenary. Stand out hotels were in Urubamba, M. Picchu, and Uyuni - all exceeding my expectations. I didn't realise so many lunches / dinners were included which was a great bonus.MP, Amersham

Most memorable experience: "Impossible to pick! Machu Picchu, the floating Uros Islands, the Nazca Lines, and seeing the condors were all incredible experiences that we will never forget."KF, Reading
Most memorable experience: “Colca Canyon, Floating Islands on Lake Titicaca, Machu Picchu without doubt. The journey from Ingapirca to Cuenca was very beautiful.”CR, Truro
"The most enjoyable… having chocolate pancakes in the narrow cobbled streets of Cusco. And in the mountain village of Aguas Calientas. And in lots of other places. The kids having fun with the cats at the cat park of Lima. Meeting a mountain family and finding out about their way of life. This included meeting their guinea pigs – kept purely for their meat.”LBM, South Africa
The whole holiday was memorable and the flow and way it had been planned was excellent - we had a build up that allowed us to visit other parts of Peru, acclimatise and take in the history, culture and natural scenery before capping it off with the Inca trail and Machu Picchu!AB, Reading
Colca canyon really exceeded expectations and we hadn't been aware of this destination prior to arranging the trip.JA, Staines-upon-thames
Highlight?: The whole of the Ausangate trek - the best short trek we have ever done in terms of scenery and local culture with the added advantage of comfortable mountain lodges.AST, Berwick-Upon-Tweed
Highlight?: Too many to mention but the Condors and Machu Picchu were spectacular.GB, Westerham
Most Memorable Moment?: Arriving at Machu Pichu - seen the photographs could not believe actually there.CM, Bradford-on-avon
The Inca Trail with the 3 day camping has to be the most memorable part. It was an extraordinary adventure - tough, exhilarating, stunning and as a family with grown up children an amazing challenge to do as a group of 5. We all loved Peru and our holiday. Peru surprised us. It blew our minds. The country is stunning, the people charming, the history fascinating and the food absolutely delicious. We look forward to returning and maybe trying the Salcantay trek! We will definitely want to return to El Tambo for more chill time!GC, London
We were impressed by everything we saw, however the visit to Machu Picchu and the islands on Lake Titicaca were the most memorable The former is an iconic site and the guide, Freddie was excellent.

Most memorable experience: “Probably visiting the islands on Lake Titicaca followed closely by HB train and Machu Picchu"TS, Birmingham
A fantastic travel company for Peru. Highly respected locally. The whole Itinerary was flawless with extremely professional local reps in Peru. I believe the Inca trail company in Cusco to be the best there!JD, Swansea
