New Reviwe on TA

 I really like and appreciate when people write dissertations on TA, but this brief one makes me really happy. It may have been written by my previous boss and good friend CM.

Gil is hands down the best guide I've ever had. Born in the area, he is extraordinarily engaging and knowledgeable. He remains a good friend despite the distance between us

New review o TA

5 of 5 starsyesterdayReviewed by David A
Having grown up in what is now the National Forest and with 35 years as a tour guide, Gil Serique offers a tour that is totally authentic and quite different from any other. We saw three-toed sloths (ought to be called three-clawed), pink dolphins, too many birds to count, iguanas, giant Brazil nut trees, rubber trees, and so much more. We also caught piranas and were treated to fresh Brazil and cashew nuts, tasty fish snacks, fresh lemonade, caipirinhas (a unique Brazilian drink), and even nice cold local beer. What a fantastic tour led by one of the most knowledgeable and certainly the highest-energy guides in the world!

Cruiseship SPECIAL tours

New Review

5 of 5 starsyesterdayReviewed by Betsy A
Gil Serique's Floodplains Exploration was the highlight of our Crystal cruise on the Amazon--in no way comparable to the superficial excursions offered by cruise lines. Gil was born in the area and has an in-depth knowledge of not only the flora and fauna but the history, politics, people and culture of that part of the Amazon. As other reviewers have mentioned, we saw most of the birds and animals pictured in his colorful guidebook, including pink dolphins, sloths, toucans, and the prehistoric Hoatzin. There were only 13 of us on a big river boat, so we had plenty of room and lots of time to chat with Gil when he wasn't delivering his commentary. He occasionally mentions celebrities and other famous people he has guided through his favorite places, but I am confident that those celebrities receive no more attentive treatment than we did. If I had the ear of the right officials in Brazil, I would tell them to make Gil Serique a National Treasure. Do not miss this tour!
