If you love the nature - I highly recommend do this tour. The tour guides are real masters about the jungle and provide so much knowledge and expertise. I saw animals from monkeys, pink dolphins to green parrots and Tarantulas. We hiked trough the jungle, built bow and arrow from the trees there - it was incredible. The food what Maria and her team is providing is delicious - they even provide vegan food if you want. Furthermore we visited a local farmer and got to know the process of Manioka. The accommodation is lovely. You have a bath in every room and a fan or an AC. The team was so welcoming and warm hearted. It was just beautiful and I will definitely come back. It is NOT A SAFARI! We are in the jungle so mostly the animals are very well hidden!

The tours were excellent, the guides know a lot about nature: Favio and Jefferson were excellent guides and greatly facilitated the experience. It is advisable to pay attention since the person who runs the bar is very bad with customers and usually wants to charge more. I recommend asking the price of drinks before consuming and keeping track of how much you consume. The hotel is very comfortable and the experience of spending a night in the jungle is incredible, do not miss it !! One detail is that we did not go to the inn of the Juma River, but that they changed us at the last moment to a hotel called "Anaconda"

My experience was fantastic! I recommend it to everyone, I keep talking about it because my friends are looking to see if they can do it with that company. From minute one, the service was excellent, the workers always attentive and close. The spectacular food and the best place impossible. Fabio is a wonderful person, dedicated to the conservation of nature and species. I would go back a thousand times, it was a pleasure to meet you all. See you on the next adventure!

Super trip. An excellent guide who organized our activities throughout the days of our stay. We saw 2 species of monkeys, sloth, iguana, dolphins, various birds, caiman. In Manaus itself, there are many tour agencies offering tours of the Amazon, you can order right on the spot. But how big is the difference in price, I don’t know.

It was great experience, worth the money spent.The staff and company very attentive to all the needs of the tourists. We have had a pleasant experience, definitely do it again.
