The driver and tour guide FRANCISCO MAIA introduces to the several local attractions including the famous Amazonas Opera Theater, the church in front and the square sorrounding the area. Then, the Cathedral area featuring the pictouresque clock and later the Central Market, where Francisco tells local anecdotes, which really help in understanding the Manaus "milieu" in the historical centre. Crossing the giant bridge is an amazing experience and the conclussion in the Ponta Negra beach and residencial area makes this tour the mandatory foreword to deepening Manaus...

A very dynamic guide took us surprisingly in a private tour to Opera, to the fascinating market over the Big Bridge and to the beach of Manaus. We learned a lot about the city but also about the life of the people here. Our guide has also been to Switzerland and is a talented speaker. He also asserts himself for his guests when a restaurant is already busy and there is hardly any space. We think it's worth booking through GetYourGuide because the quality and price/performance ratio has always been right for us.

Manaus is in need of some TLC as buildings are generally in need of a power wash and a paint job, this is true of both private and public buildings. The most interesting thing to see was the beef and fish markets.

It was an excellent tour Joseph was very thorough and knowledgeable about the city. I would highly suggest taking this tour

The guide was very good, had good knowledge and always looked after us.
