I booked 3 days in the Amazon with Amazon Riders, in May. I booked through Internet in order to gain some time in advance 'cause our plaine landed in Manaus late at night.
Rafael, our contact through Internet, was very responsive to our several mails and he was in charge of welcome us to the airport, book a hostel and leave us the next morning to the river. To the river to meet the rest of the group and the guide, before we get into the Amazon.
Mutante was the name of our guide. A very nice guy who was born in the Amazon and guide us with an eternal energie and explaining all the time plenty of things about the jungle, even those we couldn't see at first sight. He speaks very good english and some times tries with italien and french.
Basically, we discover the jungle by boat and by foot in a several hours treeking. At night, we slept in a very nice hut made it by wood for 2 days, the 3d one we slept in the jungle. Such a nice experience! The food was all in charge by Mutante and his daughters. Basic food to keep going in the jungle, rice, chicken, farofa, bread, butter and pastry.
Rafael get in charge as well to pick up us to Manaus and then to the Airport. Very well organised.
We have experienced 3 inforgeatable days in our trip. I'd recomend you to chose Amazon Riders.
