We did a walk through jungle to a waterfall and swimming area, then took a canoe ride down some mild rapids. Indigious people village was very interesting. Lunch was as expected a typical Ecuadorian meal with soup then beef or chicken, rice lentils, and fried plantains. The driver/guide Pablo was a good driver and spoke good English. Overall good day and we are in our 70s. 6 people in bus all got on well. Never felt pressure to buy anything or walk too much. Overall it was a great price and experience.

It was packed with many great activities from a beautiful hike in the jungle to a gorgeous waterfall. We got to see how chocolate was made. We got to swing on a beautiful swing over the trees and also go on a very fun canoe ride.

Hands down the best experience of our entire South Amercian trip. Being in the Amazon was surreal. The views were unbelievable. This tour has everything included. We went on the day that had a lot of rain in the beginning, so we missed the views at the first location (sad but we quickly forgot about it because of the amazing things that followed). It cleared up by midday. Make sure you go on a day with clear skies because the views you'll see in the afternoon are next to none.

It's definitely worth it! The guide made sure that we timed our stops well, depending on the weather. The Cascada Hola Vida is obviously awesome and very popular, but if you happen to be in that area on your own, I can recommend the Cascada Vida Natural. I was pleasantly surprised about the visit at the Kotokocha community, I hadn't expected much. They let you shoot a dart with a blowpipe. They paint your face with the easily washable red paint, but if you want you can also get a semi-permanent tattoo with the black color, it's supposed to stay on between 8 and 20 days. You will get the opportunity to pose with animals such as parrots and a baby snake. I really enjoyed the ride in the canoo, but leave everything that you don't want getting wet in the bus. It's definitely not for the faint hearted! The last stop was at Indichuris viewpoint, where you get an amazing view. There are also some caves to explore. Don't miss out on the swing there, it was a lot of fun!

Book this tour for me and my friends. I really liked what the community told us. The waterfall was also beautiful. The boots they gave us helped us a lot to avoid damaging our shoes.

This was such an incredible tour. I was not sure what to expect, but was blown away by the organization, the places we visited and the experience. From the swings, to the culture of the local tribe, to the waterfall hike, it was a wonderful day. Our guide was so lovely and provided so much information. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone going to Banos or Puyo. I loved it!

Sadly not a great experience: - despite the fact we were the first people to be picked up, the bus was 20 mins late. After that, the bus circled the city for almost an hour going by the same places over and over to pick up others - the driver drove in a manner that even made the locals on the tour feel scared. - no covid rules whatsoever were in place. Nobody, not even the staff, wore masks. At the tribe village, everybody was asked to drink from the same cup; same for the blow pipe. We didn't feel okay participating in either activity, which is a shame as we had been looking forward to it. - there was no translation to English for anything that was said by the tribe chief, which would have been interesting to us. Same for the chocolate making part. However, the tour had been advertised as English speaking. - at the tribe village, captured animals (amongst others a snake and a macau parrot) were passed around for people to take pictures with - a practice which is shockingly cruel and (in most countries) outdated. - children of the tribe which should have been in school at the time were presented to dance for the tourists, a tip was asked for their education. A bit contradictory. - the museum advertised on the tour was a gift shop. We left not having learned anything about the tribe. Sadly, we felt that it was very much a wasted day on our otherwise lovely trip to Ecuador.

1) The driver on this tour drove the passengers in a very unsafe manner. He continuously increased his speed to drive around and ahead of other cars in front of him. He continued to drive this way while it was raining at night as well. I was in fear the entire time that we may get in an accident. 2) The tour guide mainly addressed everyone in Spanish and left it up to other guests to translate to me in English. Thank God someone on the tour spoke English to help translate. But the purpose of marking that you speak English during the time of booking should be to assure that you are being spoken to in the language you will be able to understand the information . 3) The most IMPORTANT THING that I was not satisfied with is the visit to the indigenous community. Mainly because the tour guide continuously emphasized the importance of showing respect to the community of indigenous people who live in the Amazon by accepting a white colored drink as a sign of acceptance and tradition but I quickly noticed that every visitor on this tour was drinking this white colored drink from the same cup while we ARE IN A PANDEMIC! So it was very unsanitary and careless to say the least. The tour guide should do more to encourage the visitors about choosing to take the drink at their own risk, rather than informing the visitors that it is disrespectful to not accept the drink.
