Full description
Day 1: Start the tour with pickup from Puerto Maldonado Airport. Your guide will be waiting for you right in front of the exit with a sign with your name on it so you can find them easily. After a short office visit, head to the river where a boat will be awaiting you to take you to the lodge. Check in to your bungalow then set off for your first jungle tour. Walk for about 2 kilometers through the jungle searching for monkeys, brown agoutis, and butterflies as you learn about the trees and plants which grow there. When it gets dark, begin your night adventure on the river to go in search of caimans and capybaras. Enjoy this exciting tour with the opportunity to learn all about the animals and take pictures.  Day 2: On the next day, visit Lake Sandoval which is located in the heart of Tambopata National Reserve. Here, observe the many bird species, caimans, turtles, monkeys, and giant otters that live here. Return back to your accommodation for a short rest before embarking on your next night activity. Later, head into the rainforest at night, following your guide through the dark jungle in search of night monkeys, tarantulas, frogs, insects, and other nocturnal animals.  Day 3: On day 3, embark on a kayaking adventure, heading downstream to the Monkey Island. When you land on the island, go for a walk searching for monkeys and observe them in their native environment. Enjoy the opportunity to feed and take pictures with them. After lunch, visit a local indigenous family and learn about their culture and way of life.  Day 4: Start your final day pretty early and head to the clay lick to see the parakeets, parrots and 2 species of small macaws. On the way back, search for sloths. After breakfast, your guide will take you to the perfect spot for bird watching and take you for piranha sport fishing. By around 11 AM, head back to the main office from where you will be taken to the airport or bus station and your tour concludes.

We stayed at Green House Tambopata for four days and we really enjoyed it. We have undertaken countless excursions, all with very friendly guides. The advantage of this accommodation is that they organize the excursions themselves and not just arrange them. Accommodation is very basic, cold shower, simple but tasty food, bit small portions. If you want a little more luxury and at the same time want to support the local nature conservation projects, you should take a look at InkaTerra. Overall, 3 days / 2 nights would have been enough to get a good impression of the rainforest.

I really enjoyed the tour everyone was very nice and helpful! But I think the communication with Get Youre guide was very bad my emails were almost never forwarded to the guide I didn't know certain information 1 day before the tour. Also the website does not show enough information for me about when the tour starts and ends such things are important to then de. When I sent several emails to book a flight/bus, I got rather weak information, it's a bit complicated and not that easy. But when I didn't get an answer from the emails, I wrote to Charlie, who answered me very quickly and informatively after 5 minutes. Everyone there did a really great job, but you can improve the communication.
