TESTIMONIAL by The Dodaros
Our family was fortunate to be able to spend a day with Gil Serique while we were on a very long cruise from Ft. Lauderdale to the Caribbean, Amazon, Africa, and Mediterranean. We organized a day excursion with Gil during our ship's call in Santarem. What a wonderful experience this was! Gil took fantastic care of our entire family (he even had to rearrange our outings at the last minute due to our ship changing it's time in port - but this was no problem for Gil). We were able to see so many things in the beautiful area surrounding Santarem - sloths, monkeys, iguanas, countless birds and beautiful plant life. Gil attended to every detail such as a wonderful riverboat; a friendly skipper of the boat; a fantastic cook; canoes to do our side trips through flooded jungle in; even a local boy who delighted in showing us his "backyard," which was truly the most beautiful place we have ever seen - a lagoon-type area surrounded by beautiful flowers and filled with giant waterlilies and majestic birds. We have travelled all over the world, to every continent with our three teenagers and grade-schooler and our entire family agrees that we have never had a better experience than we had with Gil in Santarem. It was truly magical, and Gil is now a dear friend who has taught us all a very valuable lesson in the thrill of loving the life we have been given.
Gil, if you ever need a reference please feel free to give our email address to anyone! We sincerely feel very fortunate to know you and hope that other people will get to have the same wonderful experience we had with you. You are a very special person!
