Manaus and the Amazon

I was in the Amazon in April 2010 and my tour was truly unforgettable! I arranged everything with Max from www.maiaexpeditions.com. and he took such great care of me! Since I was traveling alone a lot of tour companies turned me down, or told me that things were not possible. Max went out of his way to organize everything that I wanted to do, and even though I was the only one on the tour he still arranged it!

Besides this, I was able to stay with a family on the water, swim with the dolphins, and climb a tree 35 meters high! The food was amazing and everyone was very nice and helpful, even when I didn't speak their language. The entire operation was professional and the English speaking guides were not only perfect in their English, but informative about the area, the people, and the animals.

I definitely recommend this company, and their guides!! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or concerns about going there.

Thank you! That's excellent to hear, because Max is a good guy and I'm hoping he gets a lot of business in the future.

My husband and I will be on a small cruise ship, staying in Manaus for two nights. Does anyone have any ideas for tours off the ship that will make the most of our time there? Following the two night stay, we continue up the Amazon for another 3 days before exiting and heading north. Any information on Manaus itself or other Amazon tours would be appreciated.

I think most of the tours that go from Manaus into the Amazon are more than 2 days. It takes a few hours to get there, at least where I was.

However, definitely check out http://www.amazontreeclimbing.com/ for something to do 1/2 day. It's really a great experience, and the guy that runs it speaks perfect English.

You might also be able to get in 1/2 or 1 day of swimming with the dolfins. I would send Max and email and ask about that. It was one of the highlights of my trip and an experience you will never forget. Max can set up both things for you, just let him know your schedule.

Have an awesome time!
