WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

This trip was exactly what we were looking for - a good introduction to the nature, history and culture of the Amazon Basin in Peru. It served to whet our appetite for more explorations into the vibrant, colorful watery jungles of the Amazon. 

- Barbara T.

We loved the naturalists, the crew, the local food, and are convinced the boat was the best on the Amazon. Truly an unforgettable experience!

- Carol M.

Our trip to the Amazon River was far greater than we expected! Not only did we get to learn a lot about wildlife and Peruvian culture, but also enjoyed delicious fresh food and an exceptional service!

- Arianna B.

The trip exceeded my expectations. I chose Smithsonian because my friend and travelling companion had been with them on a trip down the Nile, but I had no idea how wonderful this trip would be.

- Smithsonian Journeys Traveler

The staff on the trip are the best I have ever encountered, and I have been to Antarctica, Galapagos, Alaska, in the Mediterranean.

- Joan S. & Peter T.

Additional Information 

This itinerary serves as an example of a typical experience and may vary based on wildlife sightings, water levels, and navigability. The order of events, tributary streams cruised, and villages visited is intentionally varied to reduce the impact on any one area. Each departure is a unique and exceptional experience. The order of land-based activities may change based on air schedules.

This tour requires that participants be in good physical condition: you must be capable, without assistance, of walking at least one mile over uneven terrain, climbing stairs without handrails, and have sufficient stamina to keep pace with an active group of travelers on long days of touring. 

Prices are based on rates of exchange, airfare & fuel (where applicable), tariffs, taxes and other costs as of the tour publication date. We reserve the right to correct errors and to increase program prices to cover increased costs, tariffs, and taxes received after prices are published and to reflect currency fluctuations.
