Why Choose a Private Guide?

Choosing a private guide over a group guide has its benefits compared to settling with a group guide. Here are our suggestions as to why choosing a private guide may be better suited for you.

Personalized Itineraries

If you have any special interests, a private guide can create a more appealing excursion according to your likes and dislikes. Insects aren’t your thing? No problem, your guide won’t even mention the busy spider spinning its web nearby. Enjoy the rainforest at your own pace. Take as many photos as you want without disturbing other guests and even choose the excursion length as well.

Excursions by Interest

Maybe you’re not quite into the whole birdwatching thing and you’d like to learn more about the geological history of the Amazon and its importance, or vice versa. No worries, with a private guide you can tell them your exact interests and things you’d like to learn more about and see. Guides are much more sensitive to your needs and are more open to serendipity when on a private tour.

Deep Rainforest Experience

If you are looking for a deeper and more meaningful experience in the rainforest, a private guide is the best option for you. With a private guide you can ask as many questions as you want without hesitation or holding the rest of the group back, get more in-depth explanations and enjoy the rain forest at your own pace.

Wildlife Sightings

Wildlife in the rainforest is unpredictable, so why not improve your chances of spotting a certain species of monkey or bird with a private guide? A smaller group or personal guide will give you more time specifically dedicated to a location where you may find what you are looking for. Of course, opting for a private guide may cost a bit more, but overall, it is definitely worth it.

Please note: Private guides cannot be provided at the Lodge, they must be hired during the booking process.
