This tour is amazing and absolutely worth booking! It is adventurous for sure but there still is comfort, the lodge is cozy and the food is great! Also it is a good mix of activities and time to rest and enjoy nature. The overall atmosphere in the amazon rainforest area is just overwhelmingly beautiful and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our guide James was the best, he knows a lot about the nature and explains and shows many different plants, animals and more…. We did boat trips for bird and dolphin watching, piranha fishing and kaiman spotting but also two hikes to two different types of forests… The highlight for everyone was the night in the jungle, so make sure to book this! No need to be afraid, we felt safe and happy the whole time!

We had a fun day filled with activities. The guide was great and he was gracious and explained everything in English every time, after the Portuguese announcement, even though we were only 4 who dint speak Portuguese. That made the trip worth it as we were able to follow everything. The visit to the indigenous village was good and the pink dolphins were fun.

The experience was really nice! Well organised. Nice lodge and food. Everything was professional. But the bestttt part was the kind guide Roman . Present and really willing to make everyone happy. Couldn’t imagine nicer really. Thank you for the experience and the nice guide.

Very good. We went fishing and fish some piranhas. The guide also captured a small alligator and explained about it. Then, we took a walk into the florest and saw many animals. The last night we made a camp a slept in the florest.

The guide who goes by James Bond is the most interesting man alive, non stop entertainment being around him. Don’t go into the jungle without him!
