Very very thanks to tripadvisor, because of it I found the Amazon Gero Tour from here. Lots of people wrote their trip experience and most of their reviews are very informative and useful. Most of them had a fantastic time in Amazon Jungle with Gero Tours. Therefore, I had no doubt to choose Amazon Gero Tour.
I am young-spirit adventurer so of course to choose the 6days/5nights package. Gero is really nice and easy-going person. Due to the delay of my bus he was waiting for me at Manaus Bus Station for nearly 4 hours without any complaints. His staffs and he kindly helped me to find a cheap and nice hotel which just 3, 4 shops away from his office. I was surprised his office how closed to the Opera Theatre and also not far away from the harbour. I become very pleased about my decision with them.
Whatever the guilds brought us in and out of Jungle or the local tour guilds, they all are so friendly and approachable. Especially the local tour guilds, I spent 6 days with them, we've already built up friendship. These people are so knowledgeable to the jungle such as the types of birds, floral, plants. Not only they are born in Jungle, but also they study hard, read lots of books to enhance their knowledge to make them professional. After one day activities, we always stayed in the lodge canteen to chat with them, listen to their jungle story, especially about Jaguar.
During the 6 days in Jungle, I have seen lots of birds, alligators, pink and grey dolphins, sloth, biggest tree and so on. The most exciting thing is fishing piranha and then cook them. We felt very satisfaction to catch lots of piranha. I think quite a lot of people have described the conditions of lodge. The lodge are really nice, comfortable and very jungle looking. I have to tell you a trick if anyone who would like to photographs. It is better to get up earlier like 5am in the morning; you will have a wonderful experience to see the sunrise, which is amazing. That is what I did, my friends and family they all like the sunrise in Jungle. It is not a word to describe.
6 days passed so quickly but every second, every minute, every hour spent in the Jungle is so irregretable. Gero's staffs and he treated me like friend. We still have constant contact with each other. I think I will come back to visit Gero and his family sometimes. I really like Brazilian enthusiasm.
PS: Maybe this is good news for anyone who consider spending Crhismas at Amazon Jungle. I heard from Gero days ago, he is going to make a Christmas time for the local people. He is going to give 20 % discount for 22nd, 23rd and 24th Dec10 and 2nd Jan 11 for those who want to bring the 20% discount by gift to the local people.
