Here is a review from Carol & Robert Witkiss - Brits who have set up home in Australia. They did a 4-day Amazon cruise aboard the M/V Aqua, as part of a 4-week South America tour:

Hi Miles,

We had the most fantastic holiday!! After touring China in 2011 we thought it would take some beating, however South America certainly met up to the challenge.

The cruise on Aqua was a most welcome rest in the middle of our 4 weeks' holiday. Allowing us to see the Amazon, its wildlife and people without having to pack and move all the time.

The boat was brilliant, a home away from home. As they had security on the boat, we were able to leave our rooms unlocked and enjoy the freedom and total relaxation knowing everything was taken care of.

The bedrooms were spacious, the staff so accommodating and the food sensational. Each night we enjoyed a degustation dinner of local dishes.

Each day was planned with trips out on the skiffs, usually 6-8 persons in each skiff. We explored the waterways, visited villages and saw so many pink dolphins it was amazing.

We returned to cold towels and welcome back drinks, and every time we left our rooms for more than 1/2 an hour someone had tidied up for us.

The third day was a bit short as we left at lunchtime, other people on the trip left at 9am, which I felt was a bit early considering the cost of the trip. I was pensive about this part of the trip as we had persuaded our friends to go along with us, but as we had nearly 3 days and 3 nights we all agreed it was worth spending that bit extra for the fantastic service and facilities.

On the last night the crew band performed for us and we had a great time.

I would certainly recommend Aqua to anyone wanting to see the Amazon, but still be in secure luxurious surroundings. Our memories will last a lifetime, many of them assisted by the fantastic guides we had.

Thank you for your patience in our booking process, your service was great.

Kind regards,

Carol Witkiss.'
