“Amazing Experience!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Well worth the experience. I did the 5 day and 4 night package and spent three of my five days camping in the jungle with the other two in the riverside lodge. The lodge was comfortable and simple and do not expect a 5 star luxury experience, there are other options offered for those seeking those kinds of accommodations. Marcelo, our tour guide, was phenomenal; a very cheerful and intelligent man, always willing to go on an adventure. I went during the height of the quiet season, so the hostel and the entire area was empty, it was a very intimate and personal time. For 5 days, we payed about 380 dollars each, with everything, but alcohol, included (food, water, transportation and accommodation) Claudio is a fantastic owner and a great guy! I HIGHLY recommend this company if you are seeking an adventure in the amazon. Well worth the price!

“4 days amazon tour with amazon backpackers”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

My friends and I(16 people) did the 4 day 3 night Amazon tour with amazon backpackers tour. We research several companies as most do, but from the customer service and insightful knowledge claudio and elmo and mageno provided pre-trip it was a no brainier that we made the best decision to choose Amazon backpackers Tours. This was just the start, thay was waiting for us at the airport with a sign and made the trip a breeze.elmo showed us around city of manaus. they showed up early the morning our tour started which is almost unheard of when in central or south America. elmo is a true professional all around and this job is his biggest passion (you can tell from the excitement in explaining all the wonderful things about his native land. He showed us sloths, monkeys, cayman, tarantulas, iguanas, went piranha fishing, spear fishing, saw pink dolphins, sunsets/sunrises, camped a night in the jungle and everything comes from the jungle. Words can't explain the adventure and hospitality Elmo and claudio and mageno bring to a trip.we had great time with them.amazonbackpackers tour is amazinggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg.

“We had a good time, but others' may not have...”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We went for 5 days 4 nights on a boat for 6 people. When we arrived we were informed that the boat did not have enough rooms to accommodate us as the email communication had promised. Nevertheless, we continued and the trip was good. Our guide was knowledgable, but did take us for a sleep in the jungle one night advising us that there weren't many mosquitos... my 100+ bites proved otherwise. We went during the rainy season, which wasn't rainy, but limits the amount of wildlife you'll see. The itinerary provided by this company looked great, but comprised of similar activities - most of which were trying to spot elusive wildlife. For the most part, we were able to chill on the boat and swim in the river as much as we liked, and that was fine for us. However, if we had been a group that was looking for more activity, we may have been disappointed.

Reviewed March 12, 2013

I am pleased to recommend Claudio, and all the guys who work for Amazon Backpackers. We had an unforgettable tour and lovely experience with Claudio. The professional and capable guides made a force to showed us the best of the wild life( animals, plants) and the way of surviving in the jungle. We were 3 days and we needed more definitely . I want to point out that we get everything that we agreed, food, water, transport, guides useful information and help about accommodation in Manus as well as free transport from airport. To sum up.. We felt Amazon in the best way.. THANK YOU Claudio.. We recommend the agency for everyone who want to expire the Amazon .

“Amazon tour”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Amazon backpackers provided us a great tour to Amazon. The trip to there (about 100 km from Manaus) is really something special. It is a wild place, just like you expect to see. There you will get everything you need, great tours, swimming in the river, bout rides where you can see Macaos and other wild birds. Unfortunately, you cannot see a jaguar, but there is a lot of dolphins. They are wild and it is not possible to come close to them (like they show you can see at the photos, that is some special place where they feed them...).You can sleep in the forest, which I would definitely recommend for all nature lovers. Guides are really excellent, they will how you everything there is to be shown: trees, fruits, poison frogs, they will catch a caiman, show you how to fish piranas (it is really easy), explain where anaconda can be seen, explain you the ecosystem,...
I would definitely recommend them for the tour. And try to get a good price, it is really possible.
