New Review on Trip Advisor

“Amazon River Cruise and Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW
We did a half day group tour off of our cruise ship with Gil for a short distance out of Santarem. There are two things that you should know. First, though we did not visit an unspoiled national park area (you need to go a much longer distance for that), Gil nevertheless did a great job exposing us to native flora and fauna, as well explaining the sociopolitical ups and downs of local Amazon society. Second, Gil is tremendously entertaining. He goes a mile a minute with his thoughts, and you may have some trouble following his weaving of threads, but I guarantee that you will learn more in an hour with him than you would in a day with somebody else. Gil's depth of knowledge is bottomless, and his good nature relentless. Get him to tell you about the travails of his family attempting to adjust to the region's new economic reality - fascinating and sad. If you are in the Santarem locale, Gil is your man!
