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.

We enjoyed the excursion very much. The organization is at the highest level. We contacted the guide before the start of the tour and clarified all the important nuances. Due to the restrictions due to the pandemic, we did not visit all the planned places, but thanks to our guide, the trip turned out to be as rich and interesting as possible. The guide was very attentive and patient. I told a lot of interesting things. The food was delicious home-style. In two days we saw all the most important and interesting! We were very, very satisfied!

It’s been an extraordinary day in Amazonia with Milton. We saw beautiful waterfalls, walked through the jungle and also saw couple caves. We made so many beautiful pictures and also made many unforgettable memories. Bug thanks to our amazing guide

Milton was awesome. Very knowledgeable and very accommodating. He also cares about the community which is wonderful to see. He adjusted the trip to our wishes and made the whole experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend him!

One of the best tours ive ever been to. Truly an amazing experience. When im back in Manaus I will book with the same company again. Thank you so much Amazon Private Tours!
