We had booked Gil Serique from England and on our arrival at Santarem, Gil was waiting at the harbour gate. Unfortunately several other persons from the ship failed to turn up however this did not cause Gil a problem and we started our trip. He was so enthusiastic right from the start about what we would be seeing and experiencing throughout the day. Initially going to the local fish market we saw pink dolphins being fed but the water of the Amazon being cloudy it was only when they surfaced you had a view of them. After this we went to the quay and boarded our boat. The boat was large and spacious with more crew than passengers but again this did not affect the welcome, enthusiasm or friendliness of Gil and the crew. We were served fried fish and drinks soft and alcoholic whilst we travelled further into the river passing other boats from our cruise ship who were fishing for piranhas. As we travelled Gil gave a talk on the rubber plantations and the slavery which existed there showing paintings relating to this time. After mooring we went on smaller canoes and was able to land at other points on the river. After returning to the main boat we had barbecued fish and returned to Santarém. All in all a wonderful day with a man so into the environment it was great to see. On returning to our cruise ship and hearing what other passengers had experienced from the local trips it was apparent how much more we had experienced. I have since returning recommended this trip to our friends who will be going to the Amazon next year without any worry.

Nous avons découvert Gil grâce a internet...nous lui avons demandé d'organiser une aventure sur mesure, avec nuit en forêt et découverte de l'amazonie en bateau...le tout en famille avec deux enfants de 15 et 11 ans.. Nous sommes arrivés avec 2 jours de retard...suite a un problème d'avion...Résultat ? Quelques jours inoubliables gràce a une organisation fiable et sur mesure répondant parfaitement à nos rèves d'amazonie. Que dire de Gil dont les connaissances n'ont d'egal que l'anthousiame et la bonne humeur... Nous avons également rencontré son cousin, cuisinier, qui prit soins de nos apprit à pêcher le piranha a notre fils ...que du bonheur pour lui..... Bref je souhaite a tous de rencontrer Gil et son equipe...pour des vacances plus que parfaites....l'appareil photo totalement débordant d'images, d' de bonne humeur... Cyril
