We have had a fantastic and very educational experience. This is primarily due to the very involved, passionate, helpful and flexible guides. Everything was arranged down to the last detail according to our wishes. The motto “customer is king” is 100% applicable here. We leave the Amazon rainforest with a lot of knowledge about nature and the people. I recommend everyone to take this five-day tour!

This was the trip of a lifetime. Joshua and his team were highly organised and punctual and ensured the entire trip ran smoothly. As we went in low season, we had a guide, Kennedy, all to ourselves. His passion for the jungle and river was incredible and he ensured we experienced as much of it as we could in the short time with him (about 3 experiences per day). The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the air con worked well. The staff spoke very little English but they were clearly having a good time and were very accommodating. The food was some of the best we’ve had in Brazil, which is saying something after coming from São Paulo. Hearty breakfasts of fruit and cake followed by huge portions of fish for lunch and dinner. We opted for the night in the jungle. It was a great experience with a tasty bbq, stargazing, and waking to a beautiful sunrise. But be prepared to be hot and not get much sleep. Overall, I’m very glad we chose Joshua’s Amazon Expeditions!
