It was absolutely amazing! The tour was exactly as it's been promised n even better. The weather was ok in the beginning but as it seemed that is going to change I asked my guide Milto, I believe his name, to start from the dolphins as that was and my priority and he agreed. In general the guide was very informative, flexible, calm n fluent jn English! He didn't mind to extend the 4 hours that the tour was supposed to take and drive us as smooth as possible through the waves because on our way back there was a storm. I totally recommend the tour with this guide who actually is running a private business in Amazon so he knows how to treat tourists.
This was my favorite tour I did of the Amazon. I saw some gorgeous plants, some fascinating animals, and the tour guide was great. You will definitely see bats and enjoy swimming with some fish. Bring clothes that are easy to change in or wear your swimsuit under! The only comment I would have would be to request the tour use a more environmental food place. The place they take you to serves animal products and animal products are highly destructive to the planet. With a plant based restaurant or at least plant based food for everyone on the tour I would say this tour was perfect.
Spending the day with Milton exploring Manaus' fascinating rubber boom history was a definite highlight of our stay in the city! He knew his stuff and put together an interesting itinerary that included not only the well-known (and very impressive) opera house but also an outdoor museum of the rubber baron era to which we had to take a boat. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to know why Manaus is Manaus.
Great experience, the tour was very well organized, all the activities were professionally done. The meeting of the waters was impressive, the lunch and the show unexpected good, the Visit and interaction with indigenous people were unforgettable. The tour guide, Neto, is knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly. However the English explanations were limited. But still OK. Highly recommended.
A great trip walking through the Amazonian rainforest. The trail was short and not very difficult. The cave system is very interesting, waking in the water along the cave’s walls was also a great experience. The lunch was good but the guide, Lucivaldo, was even better. He is very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and he helped me when I needed it. Highly recommend.
