Turmalina Amazon Cruise
We are indeed back from our trip, and savoring all of the wonderful memories of our trip to Peru! So some feedback …
Our guide, Eric Flores and his assistant, Luis Rodriguez, were fantastic. Over the top fantastic! Eric had so much knowledge, worked so hard so that we could see as much as possible, answered endless questions etc. They made the entire experience an awesome adventure. I cannot begin to say enough about how wonderful they were.
The crew on the ship [Turmalina] was fantastic! They worked so hard to make everything as perfect as could be. They were pleasant, fun and positive. Amazing young men! The food was fantastic! They ensured everything was prepared with bottled water etc, so no need to worry about what to eat. Fabulous meals!
And what can you say about the experience itself….other than absolutely amazing! The Amazon region, the wildlife, the people who live there: we thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the experience.
Our village visits were perhaps the highlights for us: such friendly, welcoming people who know such poverty and hardships, yet are some of the seemingly happiest people we have ever met. Gives us so much to reflect on!
In other words, Miles, it was all, and so much more, than we had even dared hope for!
We feel so fortunate to have had this fantastic experience! While in Peru, we had also visited Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Arequipa, and Lima. What an amazing country!
Thanks for asking about our trip … we love telling anyone who will listen about our fantastic time in Peru!
