M/Y Tucano 8-Day Amazon Cruise
The trip [Tucano 8-Day Cruise] was just fantastic and well organized from start to finish. They had planned a great itinerary which fit active types like myself. We had 4 excursions a day (by boat or by foot) including nature walks, nature floats in the canoes, visits to typical villages, and even prihana fishing. It was full days to get the most out of being in the Amazon.
The itinerary also took us to a remote area where we did not see other boats or people very often. That helped to make it the adventure of a lifetime - to get that far off the beaten path!
The food was very delicious and plentiful on board.
But the best part was the guides. Edgy and Souza were AMAZING. They seemed to work 24/7 to provide us with comfort on the boat. But they really shone when they were guiding us in nature. I learned SO much about the plants and their uses and also learned a lot about the birds and animals and ecosystem in general. They were so knowledgeable and answered our ENDLESS questions with a smile every time.
Overall I would recommend this trip highly (although I have not been on any other trips on the Amazon!). But I had very high expectations of the trip and they were all met. It was one of the best weeks of my life :) (and PS I caught a really big piranha)
Hope that helps out!"
