Our trip to Peru was the BEST holiday we have ever taken . Every facet of our trip was well organised & we had no stress or worries as all details were taken care of by youself.
The butterfly collecting was very good , moths were okay - & your knowledge of suitable collecting sites was great . The accomodation was very pleasant - in Tingo,Lima & Cusco .        Read more

Before I left for Peru, I knew I missed one tour and my schedule was very critical. However, Manuel still designed one special itinerary merely for me to Tingo Maria according to my all requests for collecting plan and equipment.
The tour guide and his colleage 120% meet my all demands, whose working attitude remains even at very night time. Consideration is Amazon Insects' biggest merit.
You think of insects; they think of you.             Read more
