What people are saying about Pará

Going to Combu Island is a wonderful experience. I loved the boat ride and the tour at Dona Nena‘s chocolate production. It was a lot of fun. I highly recommend this tour for everyone who wants to experience the sourroundings of Belém.

Excellent tour, super sweet guide. The tour was great, we got to know a little about the fauna of the region and saw a demonstration of açaí collection straight from the foot by a gentleman from the local community.

This expedition with Patrick was very pleasant. The surroundings of Belém are really worth the detour and we are very happy to have discovered this pretty corner of the Amazon.

Thank you for an amazing bout and jungel tour. Super nice and clever goud! We recommend!
