Anaconda!
Never know what you'll see on a jungle walk.

We had booked this trip in 2019 to celebrate in 2020 our 40th Anniversary, obviously delayed until 2021. It was unique, different, immersive, small ship cruising (which we like), we loved the whole trip. In our case we booked through Uniworld Boutique River Cruises which took us from this ship to Cusco, to Machu Picchu and back to Lima. When originally booked I thought this was a lot of time on a ship without touching land but each day had a special touch, a different plan and the week past by very quickly. We loved each & every day on board with the days activities. We did not miss any activities because we knew that is when they would see something special. The crew & staff are amazing, you can see they truly love their profession. The Naturalists were excellent, thorough, interesting and were never at a loss for the answer to a question. The crew on board took care of us, our rooms, food, the bar & every detail you could think of. Our very first time to be without wifi or cell service for most of the week, it was so relaxing! The Naturalists George with his awesome photography & energy beyond belief, Julio with enthusiasm that is contagious, Ricardo who was quick to spot wildlife they all worked together as a team making sure we saw as much wildlife as possible. The on board crew from the food with Alexandra, the bar with Robinson all the staff knowing what you wanted before you could speak. The rooms were made up the minute you left & we all loved the towel origami each day! The skiff drivers, the health technician, everyone chipped in to make our trip memorable. I highly recommend this once in a lifetime experience.
