Reviews for Amazon river cruise, small group


review 31 Dec 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The early morning, 6:00AM, and night wildlife excursions. We went out in small boats up small rivers to look for birds, monkeys, sloths, reptiles. Even at times when there was no wildlife, the sounds of the jungle were captivating.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Manage your expectations. The trip is for good travelers, not tourists. The Motor Yacht Tucano is amazing, but if you expect the luxuries of a modern cruise ship you will be disappointed. You will have the opportunity to make four excursions each day. During the rainy season you will get rained on during three of the four. Your clothes will dry out.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The 6-person crew and the 2 guides are all local people with families who benefit from the jobs. The boat was operated in an environmentally sensitive fashion- solar water heaters, solar panels, composting and recycling.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent. Very glad that we did this trip.
