We had an incredible day!! Our guide Fabio was fantastic! Hiking through the jungle he told us so much about the different trees and pointed out small details, like the poisonous foam from a frog. Swimming with the pink dolphins was amazing, the lunch in the village was great!! Thank you so much Fabio for this wonderful day!!!

if you have just one day to experience the Amazon, **THIS** is the one to book! Driver delivers you 46 minute drive out of the city, where you board a small boat and head along the river for a comprehensive and SAFE jungle trek experience. Followed by swimming with dolphins, fishing for piranhas, local lunch, sunset and caiman spotting. Small and intimate group. My tour was 5 people. would HIGHLY recommend this experience as the one you want for the full package day length experience. Top 3 adventures for someone who has been everywhere and done just about everything. You will NOT regret it! Book it now!!!

Fabio was our guide, he knows the forest so very well, I learned a lot during the walk in the forest. Hé appreciated contribution of the group, but was quick to correct us where we were mistaken, and all in such a nice and gentle way. I loved swimming with the pink dolphins, and it was also a rare chance to see the Pirarucu alive and jumping to their food. Fishing is not so much my thing but the kayman hunt was fun. We had a great day
