In september i e-mailed back and forth to a jack at Manaus Booking who it turns out works in the office of Amazon Backpacking. I arranged a trip to go Peacock bass fishing with him when i was in Manaus on another river tour. Jack told me he would pick me up at the dock, transfer me to lodge, fishing with guide, meals and lodging and transfer back. I asked cost and he gave me a figure. I paid him via paypal. On the agreed time his agent was an hour late in picking us up and lied as to the reason for his lateness. We were than driven to the Amazon Backpacking office and met Jack who than demanded more money. I refused showing him the e-mails. He wanted me to stay longer and said it was a long way. To make a long story short he refused to do what he had agreed unless i paid more. He is a crook! He would not do what he had agreed too and tried to get me to pay double the amount he originally stated. In the end he did give me money back less the taxi cost which i would not have needed but i did not go fishing and was stuck in Manaus for two more days. Do not do business with this man! I have booked hundreds of trips all over the world and have never had this experience.
