At the stops along the route, native English-speaking guides will show you the amazing variety of the Amazon’s wildlife.

This cruise and tour was awesome. It was a perfect balance between relaxing and activities. The guide and crew were fantastic. The food was really good and plentiful. I especially loved swimming with the pink river dolphins, visiting the indigenous village, and the jungle trek with the elder. It was low season in the Amazon when I went, so the tour was pretty much private, giving me free range of the boat and full attention from the guide. I loved this experience so much. Memories for life.

This is DEFINITELY the highlight so far of my South America trip. After 8 weeks of very fast-paced, city-based activities, so it was VERY welcome to have some chill-out time on the water. The gentle pace of the boat travel was just SO peaceful. We got close up and personal with Alligators and Pink Dolphins. Incredible! And even though there were three of us fishing for piranha, I was the only one to catch one! And the boat's chef cooked it up perfectly for lunch! That brings me to the crew! All the meals were simple, tasty and FAB! Ship's Captain & Assistant just SO professional. My Guide had all the info I asked for and did some Karaoke too! They were all just SO friendly and knew exactly when to ask me what I would like to do, and also when to just give me space and time to relax. If you want a great mix of Nature and learning about Culture - this is it! Meeting locals and seeing traditional dance & music on the final day was SO special. Make this tour a priority.

We booked the 4-day tour in the hammock for two and were alone with the crew. The guide always explained everything in a super understandable way (both in Portuguese and in English when our Portuguese skills were no longer enough) and the crew did their best so that we could have a nice time. Overall it was more than we expected and a wonderful experience.
