Full description
Spend a day in the Amazon, the world’s largest river basin and the source of one-fifth of all free-flowing fresh water on Earth. Its rainforests are the planet’s largest and most luxuriant, and home to – amazingly – one in ten of Earth's known species. Containing nearly 40,000 plant species, the Amazon sustains the world’s richest diversity of birds, freshwater fish and butterflies. One of the world’s last refuges for jaguars, harpy eagles and pink dolphins, its thousands of tree species are home to southern two-toed sloths, pygmy marmosets and Goeldi’s monkeys. Your tour will begin with a pick-up at your Manaus hotel, or airport. From there you will enjoy a boat cruise to Lake January to see the meeting of the waters at Negro and Amazon Rivers. Switch to canoes and enter the waterway for dolphin observation and to visit the famous Victoria Regia water lilies. Sail by speedboat to an indigenous village, where you will interact with the indigenoue peoples of the Dessanos and Tucanos. Visit a jungle pharmacy and watch villagers going about their daily activities. Meet the shaman of the tribe, and see and purchase lovely handmade indigenous handicrafts.

We had a fun day filled with activities. The guide was great and he was gracious and explained everything in English every time, after the Portuguese announcement, even though we were only 4 who dint speak Portuguese. That made the trip worth it as we were able to follow everything. The visit to the indigenous village was good and the pink dolphins were fun.

Great experience, the tour was very well organized, all the activities were professionally done. The meeting of the waters was impressive, the lunch and the show unexpected good, the Visit and interaction with indigenous people were unforgettable. The tour guide, Neto, is knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly. However the English explanations were limited. But still OK. Highly recommended.
