Traveler Reviews

The trip was absolutely flawless. I was truly amazed that an itinerary as complex as this would come together with no issues at all. The transfers were there when promised and the guides were exceptional. We knew the trip would be good, but we didn't realize how far beyond our expectations it would become. It was the perfect itinerary for us – just the right pace with amazing sights and activities.

Our family of 6 had an incredible time on the Amazon Dream. We rang in the new year with a champagne and suckling pig roast dinner and a pop-up samba party on a beach in the middle of the Amazon. All of the guests agreed that the meals should be Michelin-rated. This cruise was extraordinary and Rainforest Cruises made the organization and reservation process very easy.

WOW!! What a wonderful trip we had to Peru – everything was amazing: the people, the scenery, the culture, the food, the wildlife and all our hotels & trips. All made all the more special by your excellent organizing, planning and support. Everything worked like clockwork. The colors and flavors of Peru will stay with us for ever as will all the memories we made.

We arrived home late yesterday after the most amazing vacation ever! I wanted to thank you for your excellent choices and for organizing the trip. Every flight and transfer went extremely smoothly and the selected hotels, tours, and the Galapagos cruise was fantastic. Again, thanks for helping us organize a vacation that we will never forget.
