My family stayed at the Amazing camping for three nights and we had an amazing time. The camping is very basic (after all you are in the middle of the rainforest) we such trip as:jungle walk,fish for piranhas and the best thing of our trip was over night in the jungle!!!

The entire staff was wonderful, extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We were busy from morning to night on tours and actually we swiming with the dolphins the trip was worth the additional cost. I would highly recommend it.

My daughters (14 and 11 years old) especially loved the cute little monkeys on the property. They came right up to us and even jumped on us!

This trip was a wonderful experience that my family will always remember.

We can also change emails:stefanbukkel@hotmail.de

I cannot say enough good things about Amazon Mystery Tours. We spent two days in Manaus and five days on a yacht charter they arranged, and it was one of the best trips of our lifetime. (We have visited 69 countries, so that's saying something.) They are very well organized, honest, experienced, and they really know the Amazon well. We sailed up the Rio Negro on our large, comfortable yacht... then up one of the tributaries, where we "anchored" the boat (tied it to a tree), and took to kayaks, canoes and a small aluminum fishing boat. We chose to sleep in hammocks in the rain forest (if we had know how great it would be, we would have spent more nights that way).... we fished (for fun, not for food).... we hiked in the rainforest.... and we laughed for hours every day. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna (we felt completely safe everywhere), and the food was amazingly good (and varied). We are going back next year, but will spend more time on the river. We wouldn't think of using anyone else to arrange our tour.
