Amazon River Cruise
Experience one of the greatest voyages in natural history as you navigate more than 500 miles of the Amazon and its tributaries.
WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
This trip was exactly what we were looking for - a good introduction to the nature, history and culture of the Amazon Basin in Peru. It served to whet our appetite for more explorations into the vibrant, colorful watery jungles of the Amazon.”
We loved the naturalists, the crew, the local food, and are convinced the boat was the best on the Amazon. We learned so much about the natural environment, had new experiences (I caught my first fish - 3 piranhas!), swam in an amazon tributary and identified over 130 birds and participated in a shaman ceremony. Our fellow travelers were interesting and we enjoyed meeting the Ribeneros along the rivers. Truly an unforgettable experience!”
The enthusiasm and knowledge of nature guides was second to none. They truly cared.”
One of our best trips ever!”
