Our 4 day stay in the Amazon was amazing. Everyday there were multiple activities planned and all of them were really nice. Fabio was very kind and knew so much about the Amazon, he told us all kinds of interesting stories and facts and was always happy to answer any questions we had. The people who took care of the transport and the owners of the place we stayed at were also very friendly. Everyday we had great breakfast, lunch and dinner. There were some problems with floodings when we were doing the tour, but we think they did a great job at still making it a great and unforgettable experience for us. We would definitely recommend! It’s an experience we really enjoyed and is very special to us. Especially the night of camping in the jungle was so beautiful and special.

Great experience - our guides Frank and Joao did a good job making sure that we fully experienced the Amazon. We saw loads of river dolphins, tucans, sloths, tarantulas, and piranhas. The food was excellent. Although the activity description on GetYourGuide suggested that they may not be vegetarian-compatible, the kitchen team made delicious soy-based vegetarian options to accommodate our group. We were very grateful and the food was one of the highlights! One note - the activity description suggested that we would visit an indigenous tribe, which turned out to not be an option for this particular lodging. If that is important to you, another booking option may be a better fit. Thank you to the team for the great experience!

A truly unforgettable experience. Antonio and Adriano were lovely and extremely knowledgeable guides. It's not a hugely glamorous experience but it's one I would recommend to anyone who is able to do it

Nice tour in the jungle. I recommend to stay 4 days because it was an amazing experience, especially sleeping in the jungle and grilling food. Good balance between activities and time to relax.

The trip was amazing - exceeded all expectations! Everything was organised well and ran smoothly giving us an experience of a lifetime - thank you!
