The tour was guided by Aldinei Cruz who is an excellent guide. He brought us to different places while taking the boat. He explained clearly to us the different type of plants and their function in the forest. Aldinei was able to answer all other questions we had around the Amazonas, the people and their culture. We enjoyed the different stops during the tour and even saw more than what was part of the tour description, Very good, strongly recommended.

The guide was very prompt he picked us up at the hotel on time. His English was good and he was very knowledgeable I highly recommend this tour
