JOSE GREIFO
Hello everyone! My name is Dr. Jose Greifo, I am originally from Peru - Iquitos, but I have educated myself in the USA. I live now in Moosup CT, but my dream passion was to help to protect the Amazon jungle since these areas have hundreds of species between birds, monkeys, snakes, butter fly among other wild animals that inhabit this Amazon Jungle. Therefore, I love showing people around the world what we have here in Peru. I personally thank you for taking this tour with me.
