Wait wait I changed everything!!! I did a few tours with Milton!!! Book with him!! 150% recommended!!! Milton is out of this world stupendous!!! He made me feel 100% safe, taken care of, and he and his team of local guides showed so many great things!!! I felt for 4 days I was a local who had an inside track on EVERYTHING in the area!!! He was very trusting, very thorough, fast on his feet, in a place that does not lend itself to any of this. It felt like I booked one simple “Rubber boom tour” and through many small bumps in the road and twists and turns due to unforeseen circumstance like the pandemic. and weather, and logistics, instead of those things derailing my plans with Milton and his crew of locals it actually made the trip blossomed into a multifaceted multi day event of many tours which allowed me a behind the scenes tour of nearly all the highlights of this amazing part of the world called Manaus!!! MILTON AND HIS CREW ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you love the nature - I highly recommend do this tour. The tour guides are real masters about the jungle and provide so much knowledge and expertise. I saw animals from monkeys, pink dolphins to green parrots and Tarantulas. We hiked trough the jungle, built bow and arrow from the trees there - it was incredible. The food what Maria and her team is providing is delicious - they even provide vegan food if you want. Furthermore we visited a local farmer and got to know the process of Manioka. The accommodation is lovely. You have a bath in every room and a fan or an AC. The team was so welcoming and warm hearted. It was just beautiful and I will definitely come back. It is NOT A SAFARI! We are in the jungle so mostly the animals are very well hidden!
Traveling to the lodge was an adventure in itself. Boat, followed by a ride in a old, but reliable VW van, followed by another hour-long boat ride through the rain forest. Our guide, Kennedy, was knowledgeable and insightful. We really enjoyed a peaceful, pre-dawn, boat ride on the lake with time to listen to jungle sounds including, numerous birds and haunting howler monkeys.
Super trip. An excellent guide who organized our activities throughout the days of our stay. We saw 2 species of monkeys, sloth, iguana, dolphins, various birds, caiman. In Manaus itself, there are many tour agencies offering tours of the Amazon, you can order right on the spot. But how big is the difference in price, I don’t know.
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!
