Amazing experience. Got to swim with pink dolphins, go piranha fishing at sunset and a night time boat ride to spot alligators. Rambo the guide pulled a baby alligator out and we got to take pictures before releasing him back in. Lodges were comfortable and understandably basic given the location. Expect to see plenty of wildlife including around the lodges such as tarantulas and snakes, but all part of the experience. Thank you to all involved!

We had a fun day filled with activities. The guide was great and he was gracious and explained everything in English every time, after the Portuguese announcement, even though we were only 4 who dint speak Portuguese. That made the trip worth it as we were able to follow everything. The visit to the indigenous village was good and the pink dolphins were fun.

The experience was really nice! Well organised. Nice lodge and food. Everything was professional. But the bestttt part was the kind guide Roman . Present and really willing to make everyone happy. Couldn’t imagine nicer really. Thank you for the experience and the nice guide.

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

It was an excellent tour Joseph was very thorough and knowledgeable about the city. I would highly suggest taking this tour
