What people are saying about Manaus

It’s amazing experience to piranha fishing , tour guide is full experience and full of patience . it’s not only piranha and crocodile , there have belonging beautiful star night and firefly surrounding beside the tree, if you lucky enough you can see the owl is standing on the tree . I’m so satisfied with half day alligator tour, highly recommended !

Very adventurous but also very safe. I was actually the only one on this experience and had a private experience pretty much, I appreciate the company not cancelling it. Beautiful trip down a side tributary of the amazon, caught a couple pirahnas, and got to see gators up close and personal.

They were picked up from the hotel as described, driven to the port and from there we went with 2 friendly gentlemen and a small passenger boat to the Amazon region. Language only Portuguese, but no problem for this activity. Great and exciting experience to see this area with your own eyes

It was a great trip. I speak little to no Portuguese and my guide spoke very little English. But we are both fishermen and we’re about to communicate that way. He was a great boat captain, put me on fish and caught some crocodile. I would recommend it again.

Perfectly organized tour with professional Piranha fisherman and alligator hunter in tow who catches them with bare hands (obviously alligator cubs)
