Amazing tour with ‘Godfather Paulo’

This was the most amazing way to explore the Peruvian jungle, mountains and of course the magical Machu Picchu. Thanks Paulo for all the fun conversations, nice information about the fruits, animals and all the other things we saw!

Inca jungle trail with Paulo

Great tour! Perfect mix of activities: rafting, hiking, mountain biking, zip lining and to relax a nap in a hammock after lunch or swimming in the hot springs in the afternoon. Paulo, the environment, the lodges and the food were all amazing.

Thank Ine V

We did the inca jungle tour and just took one backpack with us. It's just 4 days anyways. They gave us a liter of water every day that we just put in our backpack, but it's easy to buy water along the way.
