What people are saying about Belém, Brazil

Very nice outing, we docked at several ports. For water lovers, I recommend, it's very soothing. Only downside, the boat left 2 hours late, this is apparently often the case but it's good to know. The room has the minimum, a double bed, a single bed on the mezzanine, a mini fridge to store your provisions, and a bathroom with a toilet and a shower. There is also air conditioning. It was a good experience. Taxi from the hotel to the port included, with accompaniment to the boat, and taxi from the port of arrival to the hotel also included. I recommend.

Going to Combu Island is a wonderful experience. I loved the boat ride and the tour at Dona Nena‘s chocolate production. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour for everyone who wants to experience the sourroundings of Belém.

This expedition with Patrick was very pleasant. The surroundings of Belém are really worth the detour and we are very happy to have discovered this pretty corner of the Amazon.

Thank you for an amazing bout and jungel tour. Super nice and clever goud! We recommend!
