New review about my special cruiseship tour

Ich buchte den Ausflug von Deutschland aus über email. Gil war schon super bei der Beschreibung seiner Tour. Er holte uns direkt am Pier ab. Er ist ein Wahnsinnstyp, der seinen Amazonas einfach liebt. Mit Leidenschaft, Witz und hervorragenden Kenntnissen, war er der beste Reiseführer den ich je erlebt habe. Und ich habe wirklich schon viele kennengelernt. Die Tour war das Beste, was wir im Amazonas-Gebiet erlebt haben. Wir sahen endlich Tiere im Regenwald und die rosa Delphine waren auch zu sehen. Super, Super, Super. Vielen Dank Gil. Wir wünschen Dir alles Gute für die Zukunft.

New reviewwww

“Wonderful tour of the Amazon flood plains, highlight of the entire cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW
We went on a tour with Gil Serique when our cruise ship docked in Santarem. It was a miserable day in the morning with constant rain but that did not slow Gil down. The rain eventually stopped in the afternoon but it really did not detract very much form our expedition. We boarded a river boat and took off down the Amazon and then branched off into smaller creeks in the flood plain. Gil is without a doubt the most enthusiastic person you will ever be around. He promised we would see all sorts of wildlife and we certainly did. Birds, sloths, monkeys, fish, dolphins etc. were everywhere. Gil and his helpers did an excellent job of spotting and identifying the wildlife and moving the boat in for a closer look. Additionally the snacks of local food and drink he kept bringing up were great. I had been on a tour provided by the ship earlier in the trip but it was no comparison to Gil's offering. We spent about 5 to 6 hours on the boat and enjoyed every minute. Gil is such a nice person and extremely knowledgeable of the area and it's history. This tour was without a doubt one of the best things I have ever done. It really gave me a better idea of what the wild Amazon is like. I highly recommend Gil. I felt safe and comfortable at all times and the tour was worth every penny.

M/S Adonia and Seabourn Quest in Santarem, maybe the very best tour ever!

Oops another new and jolly nice Review on Trip Advisor

“The best day trip of our 2 week cruise”
Google Tradutor
Before our cruise my husband and I booked a tour with Gil Serique for our day in Santarem. The rest of the party comprised 3 couples from our ship who had booked independently.

We had an extremely enjoyable day with Gil; on his boat, ashore and in small boats. We saw an amazing amount of birdlife and wildlife including many 3-toed sloths and rare pink river dolphins, and were thoroughly entertained and educated throughout the day by Gil. We don’t think we have ever met a happier person on the planet than Gil, and his enthusiasm for birdlife, nature, local history and providing us with local delicacies and drinks was infectious.

Gil was ably assisted by the boat captain, his cousin who roasted cashew nuts for us in the forest, and a local guide who could spot a 3-toed sloth a mile off!

Thank you Gil for providing us with a very memorable day.

If you intend to spend the day out with Gil, and we recommend you do, don't forget your camera and binnoculars.
