        The tour combines piranha fishing and alligator spotting, which is a good option for those who want to enjoy exciting and authentic Amazon experience. The adventure begins upon leaving the river terminal in Manaus for Iranduba. For this adventure, explore interesting places and observe their palafitas, fishermen and a landscape ribeirinhos. Upon arrival in Coast Iranduba, search for a good place to fish for piranhas. The Solimões river is much richer with fish than the Rio Negro. When it gets dark, that means its time to search for alligators. The trained naturalist guide makes an effort to catch an alligator with his bare hands, so you can take pictures and get a closer look at the animal. After the explanations, the animal will be returned to their natural habitat. Aside from the piranhas and alligator, enjoy the igarapés and the Igapós (small channels). This tour is a fantastic experience for the first time visitors to Amazon!

        Happy day on the river.
        A day tour on the river. There were only 2 of us. The guide and boat pilot were very flexible, changing the plan to keep us safe on the water and letting us be quick or take longer in various places. Lovely lunch, plenty of choice. Clean toilets everywhere. They answered all questions and gave us local information We're staying with relatives out of town but the driver waited happily with us in the car so we were dry, until our Uber arrived. Great day. We felt involved and looked after.

        A 10/10 three-day Experience
        Our experience on the Amazon tour was nothing short of incredible! My friend and I were both amazed and would eagerly return for another exploration. Our tour guide, Collin, was exceptionally professional, friendly, and most importantly, trustworthy, which made us feel completely safe throughout the journey. We gained a profound understanding of the Amazon's nature and culture, thanks to the well-organized and thoughtfully scheduled tour. We wholeheartedly give it a 10/10 rating! A big thank you to both the welcoming staff in the lodge we stayed at and our tour guide Collin for such an enriching experience.

        Not to miss Inclusive half-day excursion from Porto deManaus
        What a great excursion, but the tour company under-described the day’s activities. We enjoyed the small, and fast, boat with only 12 passengers. We were pleasantly surprised to be offered the opportunity to swim alongside the dolphins(but not stated in the tour description) Many of our fellow passengers on the cruise ship’s excursion did not even see dolphins. Holding our hands in the water as the boat floated from the dark waters of the Rio Negro to the muddy Amazon provided a great surprise! The cultural stop was ok. The lunch provided a large selection of locally prepared dishes. I enjoyed the boardwalk through the forrest, a bonus was seeing monkeys up very close, and the lily pond overlook. the most un-advertised part of the tour was the chance to fish for a pirarucu fish (in a stocked pond) I’m not a fisherman, but those fish were large and pulled quite a bit trying to get the bait off my line!! I do have a complaint: The start time was not well-communicated; group members arrived two by two starting at 8am, we didn’t leave until 9 am.

        Longer than expected
        A beautiful trip, book the half-day tour but it lasted longer and we did more things than we thought. Fortunately we didn't have anyother plans that same day.

        Awesome Amazon sights
        This tour was a large group of people (60) but it was very well organized and it kept on track the whole time. The stops were first rate. Our lunch was much more than we expected and the Indigenous village had a very good program. The dolphin swim was amazing with at least 6 dolphins returning over and over. My only caution would be to those with mobility issues as it was a bit difficult getting up from the boat to the village. I would highly recommend this tour.

        Did not meet expectations, very badly organised
        Unfortunately, this tour did not meet our expectations from the description at all. We were in a large group (initially around 20 people, split into approx 10 each), and these groups changed daily so the guides were never sure who had seen what, or even who everybody is and what tour they are on! This created the additional concern that none of the guides knew about any medical conditions or dietary requirements that had been mentioned during the booking process - Vegetarians were not catered for. Our guide spoke very limited English (despite booking an English speaking guide), so we did not feel that we got as much out of the experience as Portugese speakers. There was not enough room at the lodge for everybody, so we stayed in hammocks for 2 nights, packed too close together due to the group size. We only got a room on our 3rd night by being fairly firm about it. Mosquito nets were provided but were generally too small and had many holes. We also felt that there was not much respect for the environment - guides were dropping cigarette butts, and we heard that guides were climbing trees to catch sloths for tourists to hold whenever the sloths were low enough. There was also quite a bit of litter around the lodge, and toilet paper around the camps.

        Good but not to organize
        I contacted this agency via Whatsapp to book 2D1N at Ipanema Lodge + ayahuasca ceremony and the communication was very scarce and little. I had many doubts before making my reservation given their poor attention to detail. On the day of my activity they were late for me and communication was still very poor. Once the experience began, everything was amazing. To be honest, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the jungle. The guide David and Ever were super nice and I really appreciate that they take care of nature, respect it and teach us about its wonders. The stay is very modest, don't expect an amazing hotel...live and enjoy that you are in the middle of the Amazon and you have a roof to sleep under. Meals are sufficient and fully covered. Be prepared for plans to change as weather, light and jungle conditions can change itineraries. On my return after my stay in the jungle I had to cancel the ayahuasca ceremony because the organization and lack of seriousness that the agency gave to this activity was terrible, they had scheduled me for another day, they did not know how to give me the instructions to prepare me to do the ritual, they did not know who was going to pick me up, they did not know how many people would do it. I asked for my refund and they told me they would not do it...even taking into account that the times they coordinated themselves did not allow me to arrive on time for the ceremony. That bothered me a lot but I decided to keep the good experience in the middle of the Amazon. If you want to do activities with this agency, I recommend that you go for the adventure without stressing about the itinerary, schedules or conditions and just live it. They are good but not to organize

        Beautiful and scenic, a lot of amazing experiences, but some alterations were made to the schedule and some things on the agenda we did not see.

        Amazing Amazon experience
        This was an amazing experience. we stayed 3 nights, 1 in the jungle where you cook dinner over a fire and sleep in hammocks, and the other two in Ipanema lodge. The guides were very friendly and we felt as though they really cared about delivering a fulfilling and enjoyable experience for us. We went alligator spotting, fishing for piranha, sloth spotting, where we got to hold the him, met people from the local communities, and also went on educational walks through the jungle. Overall it was an incredible experience and we made memories to last a lifetime.

        Beautiful day on a rubber farm
        To understand why Manaus became one of the richest cities in the world, you should visit this museum, know a lot of interesting things, unique, the tour guide was very competent and nice, he was very open, gave you a lot of background knowledge, not only about the museum , but also about her work and the Amazon and how important it is to protect this unique place and the people.

        Not worth the money because of little information in English and false advertisement of the waterfall
        As with almost all other tour operators, tours and guides - almost no English. Tour guide with dreadlocks not very interested in the group. Best part of the tour was the walking part to the cave with an amazing english speaking guide called Mario. The waterfall itself is definitely not what you expect. A pool is built around it so there's not a whole lot of nature. Lunch was very good in terms of quality and quantity. The tour is definitely not worth the money, but it gives you something to do if in Manaus for a few days.

        Once in a Lifetime Experience
        The most amazing tour! The best accommodations keeping in mind you are in the middle of the Amazon. The air conditioning in the room worked great. The food was wonderful. The tour guides have everything planned out well. The excursions are so much fun. One of the best trips I’ve been on. Highly recommend. Pink Dolphins, caimans, piranhas, animals, indigenous tribes, boat rides. The adventure doesn’t stop. They even have great wi-fi in the lodge thanks to Starlink. Don’t hesitate to book this once in a lifetime experience.. The Tucan Lodge and Joshua’s adventures did not disappoint,

        Wonderful day in the jungle.
        We had a fabulous trip. We had read some reviews suggesting pick ups being an issue and not having enough time at the various waterfalls but for us, we had no issues, at least none due to Amazing Tours. Some of the other guests were inconsiderate and late but that was not this companies fault. We loved the trip, had enough time at each stop and despite the rest of our group being Portuguese speakers, Miguel (our guide) gave us individual commentary and explanations in English which was great. We would recommend this tour.

      This package is very terrible. They don’t go and fish at solimoes river and They just stopped at Negro River and restaurant. And then we went and fishing there. We complained that we bought the package with fishing at solimoes river. However, they didn’t tell us anything about that. Guide can’t speak in English too.
      They were finding the alligators at night, but we didn’t see any alligators. They can’t find anyone. It is not worth with price. It was absolutely terrible.

      Complete and absolute absence of communication from Tour Agency. They don't answer the phone nor their chat service in any language. Hotel tried to call them many times and so did I. Good luck if you need to cancel your reservation. It will be absolutely impossible. I did not want to cancel so I waited from 2h40 to 4h00 and they did not show up. Tour was supposed to begin at 4pm. We got back to our room and got a call at 4h20 PM saying they had finally arrived at the lobby. We had given up by this time and even started to make other plans but we ran downstairs and went on that tour. Our guide was good, friendly and knowledgeable. We knew he had nothing to do with how badly the tour was managed. We caught many different fishes, not always piranhas and the alligator watching tour was fantastic. Our guide managed to make our tour a lot better after a bad start.
