If you take a tour with Herman you won't regret it; he is a first class guide and sees things that, to the untrained eye, are seemingly invisible! Both he and his crew are utterly trust-worthy and extremely friendly and efficient. The food on board is plentiful, wholesome and tasty...but of course, it is local! Remember you're not on a...

Our family with daughters of 13 and 17 y. was luck to get Herman as a guide to visit Amazon life around Manaus. He knows these lands, people, plants, animals from scratch. That is why it was easy for us to visit it, to get in contact with it. With a ship we moved 4 days on the water, enjoyed... More

Booked a 2 days tour with Oropendola Tours while our cruise ship was in Manaus during our trip to the Amazon River. Reserved the tour on Internet prior to our arrival without having to pay a deposit or give information’s for my credit card. We were 10 persons in Herman’s boat. The first day, we went to a small Indian... More

Six of us shared this tour during a cruise stop. We elected the sunken forest and meeting of the waters option which included a local lunch and piranha fishing. Although the tour operator (Herman) I had been dealing with was busy with a documentary crew form the UK, the native guide he assigned to us was excellent and well suited... More

We went to Manaus a few days before our cruise ship was set to leave. Herman showed us many places in and around Manaus. He was very knowledgeable and polite. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

I stopped in Manaus on the way back from a business conference I had in Sao Paulo last month (09/2012). Wanting to explore the Amazon for a few days with a focus on fishing for the legendary tucanare (peacock bass), I connected with Herman Birley. While other tours had trouble accommodating all of things I wanted to do in three... More
