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.

Excellent day with a very nice guide who knows his subject well. Very rewarding visits on all levels: Amazonian forest, meeting of waters, people ... the buffet lunch was very varied and everything was good.

Really good guide in Milton Fernandes made the trip very enjoyable, informative and interesting. Able to all answer questions and would recommend him highly.

Great tour with Milton, we got to see Manaus on land and by boat. Excellent trip!!

We paid for two events but the second was closed. I still had to pay full price.
