What people are saying about Manaus

This tour was indescribably beautiful! Fabio is a great, very experienced guide: he really did everything to show us the natural beauties of his homeland. That's why the tour (2 people, private) became an unforgettable experience for us. The hike through the rainforest was very instructive thanks to his explanations: he knows the plants and animals inside out and because of his great experience you feel very safe. The boat ride through the flooded rainforest was also fantastic! The dense vegetation glided past us, through the silence we could listen to the sounds of the animals and watch the birds. A special highlight was meeting a sloth, which we were allowed to hold in our arms. Fabio cooked the lunch with fish and rice for us: very tasty! After that we were allowed to rest in his hammocks. The later sunset and the silence on the river at night were indescribable! A thousand thanks for everything, dear Fabio!

The tour is definitely recommended. I saw a lot of the rainforest and was able to observe many wild animals. The activities were super interesting and very well organized. The guide was really great, very experienced and he explained everything very well.
