Rio Negro House Boat Tour

I went last summer with my husband and 10 year old son on this tour. It was really fantastic!! Mark was incredibly helpful with planning our trip and knowledgeable about the river systems and ecology of the area. The food was fantastic. Do not expect to lose weight. My son had a great time fishing and boating. My husband got to relax and I had an opportunity to really dive into learning about the rain forest. The boat was clean and beautiful and the staff was lovely. We had lots of adventures but always felt safe. Couldn't recommend this travel experience enough: the best vacation we ever had as a family.
Manaus area tour

We enjoyed an excellent houseboat tour on the Rio Negro during a very brief 2 day stop in Manaus as part of a 27 day Amazon and Caribbean cruise. Although Swallows and Amazons Tours specializes in longer houseboat tours, co-owner Mark Aitchison was able to arrange a special tour for 5 of us from the cruise ship. The tour included all of the highlights of the area near Manaus including the meeting of the waters, Lake Janauario, piranna fishing, an evening cayman hunt, walk through the jungle, a village tour, and much more. We had an excellent English speaking guide and a friendly boat crew. The houseboat was comfortable, clean, and the food both delicious and plentiful. We can't think of a better way to see the natural areas around Manaus in a short time and I highly recommend Swallows and Amazons Tours to anyone.

Everything was outstanding. I even caught a piranha. Loved the Camen hunt. Must have been the best time to go. No bugs.
Thank yall again for a great time.
