Great day spent touring the Amazon river from Manaus. Enjoyed being able to put hand in the black river and brown Amazon and feel the temperature change between the two. Had a great day.

My comments may duplicate the praise of other visitors BUT having traveled in forty countries I will add that viewing this remarkable sight is one of the top ten most interesting sights I have seen in the world. Given that traveling as far as Manaus takes considerable time and effort I would encourage every visitor to make a little extra... More

This subject can be used for a number of places in the world. Even with regards to the Amazon River, there are several spots where this occurs, but it has to be understood that the Amazon has to be the single greatest mover of silt and mud on the face of this earth. This is why the river appears so... More

This was my second time in Manaus and I planned another visit to the meeting of the waters. It is wonderful to be on the river to begin with, as it is comfortable and you can enjoy the scenery including the new bridge going over the river and the birds flying around (not to mention an occasional dolphin).

Not to be missed when travelling to Manaus... The feels of the two rivers are so different that it makes it a very unique experience to actually go to the junction... This is one of those experiences when seeing it is not just enough... So pay the guide :)

I recommend seeing the Meeting of the Rivers if you're in Manaus. I saw it as part of my tour at the Ecopark Lodge. The tour itself wasn't spectacular, but the actual site is remarkable.

A sight like nothing I ever saw before. Don't miss it. We saw it several times on our cruise up the Amazon to Manaus. It was breathtaking each time. Go see it!

I stayed at the Hotel Tropical, that was amazing and the trips were organized by Fontour. So my first trip was the meeting of the rivers and I will never forget it!!! The sheer size of the river makes you feel so small...fantastic...
