Wonderful Amazonas Adventure

Our trip, guided by Emilson, was very interesting and simply wonderful. We liked everything about these three days. Emilson has great knowledge about the nature and the animals living in the Amazon and speaks very good English. The lodge is comfortable, nice and is a good starting point for short trips into the rain forest. The food (3 meals a day) was very good and they also offered drinking water 24h. We had a lot of fun and can only recommend it to everybody, who is interested in an Amazonas Trip. It was very adventurous for us, but never dangerous. It was perfect! Thank you!
