Your trip begins with a pickup from your hotel. Head to the marina where a boat will be waiting for you. Depart upstream on the Negro River to visit an indigenous tribe that came from the border with Colombia and still keep their traditions, language, and rituals. Learn from them about their lifestyle and watch as they demonstrate their traditional rituals. Afterwards, visit a project that takes care of the freshwater pink dolphins.

It was absolutely amazing! The tour was exactly as it's been promised n even better. The weather was ok in the beginning but as it seemed that is going to change I asked my guide Milto, I believe his name, to start from the dolphins as that was and my priority and he agreed. In general the guide was very informative, flexible, calm n fluent jn English! He didn't mind to extend the 4 hours that the tour was supposed to take and drive us as smooth as possible through the waves because on our way back there was a storm. I totally recommend the tour with this guide who actually is running a private business in Amazon so he knows how to treat tourists.

I took the half-day experience just because of the unavailability of time (I had time to leave the hotel). It was very worth it, everyone involved was very attentive and kind. Being close to the dolphins is amazing, the meeting of the Negro and Solimões rivers is very interesting, very good lunch, anyway, I loved it!
