Get up close and personal with the real Iquitos on this tour. One of my highlights in all of South America. If you're in Iquitos and want to see the floating houses of Belen then this tour should be no 1 choice.

I have been to Iquitos many times and have used Marlon often for guiding me or people I bring to him. He always does a professional but very cultural trip. I can highly recommend him.

We chose to go to Iquitos rather than Manu because we wanted to see what a jungle city was like. It’s crazy to think that over 400,000 people can only get in and out by boat (well Ok plane as well). It was certainly unlike...More

I wouldn't normally take a guide just to go to a market, but I am really glad that we went with Marlon. He explained what we were seeing -- the jungle fruits and meats, the medicinal plants and preparations, and the ritualistic items. He also...More

We were very glad that we met Marlon and set up two trips with him. We usually don't take guides but this time we were happy to do so. With Marlon you feel very comfortably and safe. He's very friendly so you can have a...More

I never hire guides, and that is mostly because of my distrust. So when I found myself trusting Marlon, I was surprised! He offered to show me the lower, poorer part of Belen, the house on stilts community. An older gent down the way said...More

To visit Mercado Belén and the floating village of Belén were high on my list of must do activities in Iquitos. I visited Dawn on the Amzon tours to see if I could do a tour with them, but being a solo traveller they had...More

I was alone for 1 week in Iquitos and really wanted to visit Belen. I didn't want to go alone because I wanted someone to be able to answer all my questions about all the different things you find in Belen. I looked online and...More

Marlon's a stand-up guy and an awesome guide! He showed me around Belen Market, but not the area tourists usually visit. Instead he'll take you on a boat tour of the lower part where you can see how the people of Belen really live. Cool...More
