What a day

We had a group of 12 that took a 6 hour tour of the Amazon with Gil. It was fabulous to say the least. We started out by seeing the pink dolphins at the fish market dock and then started our cruise up to the meeting of the waters and then the floodplain. The weather was perfect and we were able to do 2 canoe trips that Gil had arranged in the floodplain.

On the first trip we saw sloths and various species of birds plus fantastic sights on the numerous tributaries that we visited. The 2nd afternoon cruise was even better because we saw a Great PeToo which is a rare find because they are so well hidden in the trees. Gil made sure that everyone had a chance to the bird. Then Gil found a Boa constrictor sitting in a large tree above us. He was as excited ti see this as we were.

The whole day was fantastic and I would highly suggest that anyone looking for a tour in Santarem book Gil. You will not have any regrets.
