We spent 6 nights travelling along the Amazon River from Belem to Manaus on the Amazon Star Ferry. The cabin was small with bunk beds and a small fridge but the beds were comfortable and bedding was provided. The attached bathroom was rusty but worked well. Days were spent sitting on the open covered deck watching the river life. Meals... More

August 16-23, 2014 We just returned from our 7-day cruise on the Aqua and it was one of our most favorite cruises ever. The service is outstanding! We went during the "low" season and yes you cannot get to many of the places that are available in the "high" water season. I was asked at our orientation if there were... More

Absolutely fantiastic - rustic, but beautiful lodge. Enjoyed every minute of our 3 night/4 day stay. The time spent on the river was so relaxing. Guide Hildo was so knowlegable, pleasant and made sure we saw wildlife. Saw pink dolphins, monkeys, caimans, farm, boa constricor, etc etc. Food at lodge was good. Staff is so reliable - picked us up... More

Oct 2012: This was part of a 18 day tour organised by Kuoni UK. The review concerns "Amazon Clipper Cruises and Wolf as guide" only. We had a 5 night stay on the "Traditional" boat (smaller than the 'Premium' with 8 rooms with bunk beds) in total taking 16 passengers. It turned out to be a very enjoyable 5 days... More

My family took a four-day boat tour of the Amazon in/near Manaus through Maia Expeditions and we had the most wonderful vacation of a lifetime. Our booking contact was Miles and we were met at the airport in Manaus in the evening by Daniel and taken to our hotel rooms at the Holiday Inn. In the morning, we were met... More

Just completed a tour on the clipper. Our guides Christoff and Wolf were exceptional sharing their knowledge and answering all questions! The staff was warm and friendly taking good care if us guests, and the good was excellent . Wish it would have lasted longer, would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a safe, once in a lifetime adventure!

Literally a once in a lifetime trip. Interesting once but would never repeat....basically a big long river with little else to recommend it except the outstanding trip to Devil's Island on the way back.

We took the Amazon Cruise on Princess in Dec., 2012-13. I don't have much to say about it other than it was excruciatingly boring. One tends to think of the Amazon as thick jungle and all sorts of exotic animals. We didn't see ONE. The thick jungle, much of the time, is pasture land for grazing animals with small shacks...

In November I took a cruise with HAL that included cruising up the Amazon River to Manaus and back to Ft Lauderdale. It was indeed a trip of a lifetime! Visiting the small villages along the way was by far the most interesting part of the trip for me; Manaus is such a big city, that it seemed no different... More
