Owner description: It was a fresh start, a very difficult one; especially at a time when tourism in this region was limited to a few fishing trips planned for some directors of Panair do Brasil and a few foreigners who wanted to venture themselves in the Amazon jungle, which was known as GREEN HELL around here. In 1965, the idealist, Manuel Alcy Goes Barros, founded Amazon Explorers, giving his first steps toward the growth of tourism in this region, supported by Bulbol and Trados families, who also had a very futuristic view concerning this issue. Since its foundation, Amazon Explorers has been very proud to offer very nice tours with the same responsibility and lots of joy. Eury Barros, his brother and sister have managed the agency with a lot of responsibility to increase the number of services offered to their customers; services such as: Airline tickets, Domestic and International Tours, Language Courses abroad and the Reception of cruise liners at the local harbor. The name of the agency, Amazon Explorers, was suggested by Richard Brill, an American who fell in love with our region. And it is this spirit of affection which is required to explore the Amazon consciously in order to preserve its environment and to promote a better relationship between man and nature. This is how AMAZON EXPLORERS sees the future in tourism.

Reviewed 20 March 2012

We took the meeting of the waters tour and were pleased with the guide, the tour, and the experience. It was during the wet season, so we took "cigarette"-type boats to a secluded outpost as well.
