What Our Clients Say


Tom Holden, UK

We were looking for a completely different and original rainforest experience away from hordes of other tourists so that my wife and I could really appreciate the beauty of the deep jungle and enjoy a more personal experience … this kayak trip surpassed even our wildest expectations! The whole trip from start to finish felt authentic, with nothing special laid on for tourists – we saw the forest, wildlife and small communities exactly as they really are. I would highly recommend this trip to any active person looking for a genuine adventure!
