Amazon Golden Snake Reviews
We spend one nigth and 2 magnificent days. The group was really good and the excursion well organised by the office Amazon Golden Snake(Ruth and Vicky are great people and well trusted 😉 . The food..... more »
The overall punctuality was terrible. Always late for pickups, always late for arrivals. And always taking 2-3 hours to get ready for a meal. I mean how is that even possible? The tour guide says... more »
I would actually recommend this company even though we didn't get what we payed for and our experience in some ways was bad. So, we actually wrote a list on all the things wrong with our trip, presented it to the agency and demanded 25% of what we payed back to us. They gave us 12,5%, which is good according to me. Why? A few reasons were: * We were supposed to go 2 persons with a guide, assistant and driver but was paired up with two others and didn't get the assistant. * The ones we were paired up with were fishing-lovers and we are vegans. We were promised not to fish. * The guide didn't understand English very well, which the company promised. * The guide was really sexist and lied (or joked, hard to tell at times) a lot. + Quite much more That aside. It was obvious that the guide was very used to the jungle. He didn't communicate with us enough, though, even if we requested it several times. What we realized when we talked to the company was that they didn't even know about most our problems before we told them. It was all on the guide and those who arranged it in the reserve. What to learn from this review: Ask who the guide is. If his name is Edwin: refuse to have him. They actually promised not to hire him anymore.
I had an excellent 3 days camping in the Pacaya Samaria reserve with Golden Snake. Our guide, Lander, was second to none on his knowledge, English, enthusiasm. While Jim in the office was really helpful organising my onward travel when I was in the jungle commissions free. I think they are very competitive on price also. Note though that trips to the reserve require a certain degree of roughing it but you are in the middle of the Amazon after all.
