The activity itself is amazing and really a special experience. You can get in contact with local people and a nice special way to travel. When it comes to the organisation of the tour operator i was not totally satisfied. Of course things might change. But there were too many things unclear and uncoordinated. I booked and payed a hammock, they first did not know about this. On the day itself 3 different driver contacted me and the one that got me put me first on the wrong boat. I then had to change and learned that i was placed on the cheapest boat possible. I was informed by the tour operator that we stay 6 hours in Santarem, but that was wrong the schedule was one night and half a day in the port. I would have arranged it differently if I would have been informed correctly. Again the trip is very nice, the organisation from the organisator should be improved.

We enjoyed this unique experience on the legendary Amazon River. Unfortunately, the absence of information on the boat is regrettable: where to go to eat, the names of the ports and the duration of the stops, advance notice of the time of arrival in Belém, etc. This information would have made the experience more enjoyable and beneficial. Also, despite the information provided by Get your Guide, there was no mineral water provided on the boat, nor a shuttle to our hotel in Belém.

The trip from Manaus to Belem was a really cool adventure!! As there are just few tourists on board, you get in touch with the local people. I had so much fun with some of them, while drinking a beer together, or just having a chat about some myths about the amazonian river. Luckily we saw both kinds of the river dolphins and got fresh shrimps to eat. I can just highly recomend the trip, it‘s a beautiful experience!! Just check the date of the arrival for Hotel reservations in Belém. The ticket says „5 days journey“ but in our case it was just 4 days... We left Manaus on a Wednesday at about 10:00 a.m. and arrived on Saturday at about 04:00 p.m. In Belém.
