Wonderful trip to Manu National park We made the three day trip to Manu with eco Peru tours. From the very beginning we were met with great professionalism from Jesus and his team. We were two adults and two children age 8 and 11. They insured that adults as well as children were well taken care of and shared their vast knowledge about the different ecosystems from the Andes to the rainforest.The food we were served the entire trip was delicious and served in amazing locations along our route.The lodges where we spent the two nights were very nice and also had the luxury of an internet connection so we could upload pictures on social media.All in all well worth the money and we will be back for the six day trip in a few years.

Peru Travel with an Outstanding Guide We spent 3 weeks touring Peru with Eco Peru Tours. This is our second visit to Peru with Jesus Glhemm. He is a great ambassador for Peru and everything that we love about it: a rich cultural legacy, gorgeous geography with many varied habitats for plants, birds and animals, delicious food, in fact, rated in top five in the world. Peruvians take food seriously. We found this to be true both in Lima and in Manu Reserve and places in between. Part of our trip was spent in Manu Reserve from high montane forests descending to lowland tropical areas and Madre de Dios River. The second half was spent in Sacred Valley among the many cultural sights. Jesus is very knowledgeable of birds, plants, mammals and insects. He is equally well-informed of Peruvian cultural history. In addition he speaks English very fluently. Jesus is one of the best guides that we have traveled with. He makes the travel seem effortless and he is fun, with a great sense of humor and intelligence. He would be at ease with older visitors as well as young people and children. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Excelente experiencia por Manu Contratamos a Jesús para que nos hiciera un tour de birding y animales por Manu y fue una experiencia única. Jesús tiene una vista brutal con los animales y sabe muchísimo de aves, junto con Walter (el chofer) son el combo perfecto para hacerte pasar unos días inolviables, pendientes de cada detalle. Son cercanos y ayudan en todo lo que está en su mano. Sin duda recomiendo pasar unos días con ellos si eres amante de la naturaleza.

Wonderful Jesús is the best guide I ever had!!! I will give 6 stars if possible. We had a one day sacred valley trip and a one day Machu Picchu trip with him. Before arrival, he arranged well about our trip and ticket. At Machu Picchu, I ended up climb to the top of mountain and saw the most beautiful view with his courage. We also encountered some unexpected situation that I had very serious elevation sickness. Even our trip already ended, he still came and help us communicate with local clinic and solve the missed train ticket. Without the help of him, I feel like we could not continue our trip in Peru. BTW, he is also pretty talented at taking photos, we love the photo he took for us in Machu Picchu.

A superlative Peruvian guide It is my pleasure to be able to write a review about the quality of the day tours we took with Jesus.Jesus is an excellent guide who was knowledgeable, well prepared, flexible with our changing needs and above all patient with our thousands of questions and a 60+ year old's less than high speed pace.His knowledge of the Incas, Peru and its wildlife is astounding as is his ability to communicate it all in very fluent English.I cannot imagine a better guide for anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience in Peru!

Excelente relato, bilingüe, atento a los detalles que elevó la experiencia de Machu Pichu. Para empezar, debo decir que a Machu Pichu se debe ir con un guía para poder entender todo lo que se ve y aprender de la historia de esta civilizaciónJesús nos contactó al llegar a aguas calientes para ir a Machu Pichu. Desde el primer momento nos ayudó en todo, nos acompañó en el bus y nos ayudó a resolver un mal entendido con la entrada. Habla muy bien inglés, lo que hizo que mi esposo entendiera todo el relato. Hasta nos sacó las fotografías!Jesús elevó la experiencia y ofreció conocimientos y relatos que no hubiésemos sabido para entender lo que ocurrió allí.

Great knowledge and nice person The guided tour of Machupichu was done at a nice pace, with strategic stops for photos. The guide took us some so that we could all be on the photo. The information given about each spot was very interesting and well transmitted. He also answered additional questions, engaging in a conversation that added value to the experience. Additionally, he was funny and emphatic. Highly recommend!
