The world’s largest river is filled with mystery and adventure: churning rapids, giant waterlilies large enough to fit a child, alligator-like caimans, narrow tributaries that stretch for miles through the dense rainforest and an incredible variety of wildlife.

My father in law decided to take the family (guys) on a fishing trip and I was to choose the place and set the whole thing up. This floating cabins, private water, etc seemed to be the way to go. I was very disappointed in the whole set up. There were days where we caught 6-8 fish per boat with... More

We started our Amazon river experience out of Manaus aboard the "Amazon Clipper". An oversized house boat capable of handling 16 passengers. Out of Manaus we cruised up the Amazon till there was virtually no visible civilization left. I was surprised how many people did actually live along the river. It was everything I had hoped for......2-4 shore and river... More

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

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

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.
