I recommend the trip with Gil Serique. You can be sure that there will be a lot of very interesting stories about the PARA region, wonderful stories about the biodiversity of the Amazon. My husband and I decided to take a few days trip around the Amazon. Initially, we considered the trip from Manaus or Santarem. I can definitely recommend Santarem, which is a very charming little town. Unlike Manaus, it's enough to drive a few kilometers out of town to see the beautiful nature. We spent less than two days at Gil`s house, who lives in the charming Alter do Chao. Due to the events taking place, it is necessary to visit the town square both during the day and in the evening. In the center you can get unique jewelry and regional products both from local sellers and in the gallery. Gil took us to the Tapajos National Forest, where we could explore the unique species of trees and animals for us all day. Alex - a guide from the Park demonstrated to us, among others how the rubber was collected. In the clearing in the National Park we slept in hammocks, at night we heard the voices of the howler monkeys very loudly. We saw a beautiful starry sky over the Amazon (if you have a telescope, be sure to take it). We have never seen so many stars of the Milky Way so clearly. We were also on a full-day Amazon cruise with overnight stay. Gil gave us valuable advice and helped us buy tickets for a cruise on the Amazon from Santarem to Manaus. A wonderful addition - worth every price - was the food prepared by Sal. This guy really has great culinary talent. I highly recommend the trip with Gil!

Gil Serique provides a unique and engaging experience. It is obvious that he is enthusiastic about the Amazon and it's biology. You begin the experience on his large boat, but later transfer to smaller craft to experience the jungle and it's wildlife. We were able to see pink dolphin, water buffalo, egrets, three-toed sloths, iguanas, piranha, and many more birds. We also saw the Meeting of the Waters and giant water lily pads. It was a very full day and a wonderful trip.

Gil met us on time and made us very confortable about to except. His crew was very informative and well organized. They provided us with snacks and beverage which was extremely helpful. The day was fun and we were able to learn a lot about the Amazon from he and his staff.

Gil's "new" cruiser was at the dock when we landed and we went straight on board and enjoyed his hospitality and knowledge before we left on a voyage of discovery. As we travelled away from Santarem he filled us in on the locality and the accompanying wildlife and plantlife. His knowledge is second to none and his way of imparting it made the day amazing in all ways. Once out in the wetlands we transferred to small boats and made our way into the depths of the landscape only accessible in these boats. We saw all types of bird and wildlife and enjoyed a constant commentary all day long. He is a very interesting man with a very chequered life history which he managed to impart in a way that gave substance to our views of Brazil. The practical parts of the day ie food, drink and facilities are all catered for in excellent form and, overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this day to anyone . He will tailor it to time restraints eg cruise stops and make sure you get back in good time. We did, in fact, do a second days trip with Gil in Alter do Chao, this time a land based trip by minibus into the Rainforest which was also, although different, just as good and informative. It also emphasised to us the problems of deforestation etc which is one of his enduring passions. To finish, a fantastic pair of trips, made our cruise.
