Subject: Peru Amazon - need advice
Hello Ziners!

We are planning a trip to Peru next July, including the Amazon and the Sacred Valley/Machu Picchu, and I'm trying to choose a tour operator and specific location for the Amazon. Right now, I'm considering going to Manu, possibly booking directly with one of the local companies (Manu Expeditions or Manu Nature Tours, or Trek Peru), but I'm really having difficulty deciding whether Manu is the right destination or how to tell the difference between the tour operators. We're looking for someone that can arrange an independent trip, and we don't want to camp.

If you have had experiences in Manu or with tour operators either there or in the Sacred Valley, I'd be grateful for your advice.
