I had an unforgettable time at Refugio Amazonas! We were very fortunate to see so many different kinds of wildlife, including a jaguar on the river bank! Very knowledgeable guides, and it remains my favourite place that I've visited yet

Started off with a smooth boat ride to the lodge where we were met by Tania Olarte the lodge manager who treated us like royalty. She did everything from answering all our questions to serving dinner. Our room was open to the jungle and very comfortable. Our guide Boris was outstanding and very knowledgeable. He took the time and effort to ensure we saw all kinds of wild life and plantlife. This is a must see lodge.

This is a wonderful place to relax, unwind and really appreciate the natural beauty of this country in a sustainable manner. More so than a commercial operation it is an educational project allowing locals to learn how to earn a living from the rainforest without destroying it. Truly amazing. Thank you.

I was very impressed with the Family Adventure company in terms of the holiday delivered which was exceptional. The booking and pre-holiday experience was fine although it would be better to have a specific contact to email rather than just to phone the general number with queries.

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective

Booking and customer service were good. From a child's perspective, FAC were not as welcoming. Another company we have travelled with sent a welcome pack with a travelling companion (soft toy) and activities to do while travelling. When on the holiday this company also catered more for families needs e.g. more frequent stops when travelling for food and toilets, without parents having to ask. The stops were also at more sensible times e.g. making sure there was a stop at lunch time (12.30ish), rather than early afternoon (1.30 onwards). Children (and adults) get irritable if they've not eaten making the journey more stressful.

      About Rainforest Expeditions

      Specializing in Peruvian ecotourism since 1989, they operate tours with a strong emphasis on education and conservation.

      What Makes Them Standout?

      Science and education based tours with a strong destination focus in Tambopata, Peru. Your tour will dive into the local flora and fauna and their expert guides will ensure you see as much wildlife as possible for the time of year.

      Who Travels With Them?

      If you’re interested in experiencing nature up close and personal throughout your travel experience, and supporting local conservation initiatives this is the company for you. Trips involve being outdoors a lot, and participating in activities requiring various levels of physical fitness.

      Where Do They Operate?

      They specialize and focus in Tambopata, Peru where you’ll experience the Amazon jungle and rainforest. Operating trips throughout the year, you’ll stay in special eco lodges on your trip and spend every day exploring the region.

      Why Travel With Them?

      They’re dedication to one region and rainforest protection is what sets them apart. They care about making sure the local economies benefit from your tourism so this is one of the best companies for responsible travelers. Prepare to leave energized from the surrounding nature, physical activity, and wildlife spotting every day.

      About The Family Adventure Company

      Founded two decades ago and based in the UK, The Family Adventure Company specializes in small group family adventure vacations. The company is now part of the global adventure travel operator Intrepid Travel, and trips are offered through Intrepid as well, allowing them to greatly expand their range.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      With more than 20 years’ experience, The Family Adventure Company helped pioneer the concept of small-group adventure travel for families with young children. Activities are wide-ranging, from river rafting and kayaking to cycling, sailing, camping, and wildlife viewing, all geared to the ages and interests of the family travelers.

      Who Travels With Them?

      A wide variety of families, including solo-parent, single-child, multi-generational families -- parents, children, and grandparents traveling together -- and families with teenagers. The latter have dedicated trips of special interest to teens.

      Where Do They Operate?

      Much of the world: Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the Americas.

      How Does it Work?

      No matter where you travel, The Family Adventure Company provides an English-speaking, family-friendly local leader. Lodging, transportation and activities are also included. Tours typically consist of three or four families with kids of similar ages or interests. (You can also put together your own trip with just your family or other families you’re friendly with.) Children 14 and under get a ten percent discount off adult prices; large families (over two kids) get another price break.

      Why Travel With Them?

      The award winning company offers a wide range of trips for a wide variety of families. Because they only cater to families, they know what kids like – and as any parent can tell you, nothing is more disastrous than a family tour not geared in any way to kids. The company also supports responsible and sustainable travel practices and gives back to local communities.
