Sara planned a great trip for us. The tour guides were all incredible in both the Amazon and Rio. Lima was our guide in the Amazon and he was very knowledgable and went out of his way to improve the experience every way he could. In Alberto was phenomenal. He knew plenty of history and trivia and also is very well traveled himself, relating other countires to Rio. He also connected us with his son who took us to a playoff soccer game. Incredible experience. Sara's communication was superb.

Hotel Review
Amazon Turtle Lodge

Everything about the lodge was great except for the initial transfer. There was a several hour wait for the ferry but the guide chose a non ac car (it had ac but they wouldn't turn it on, maybe broken? I asked and they said no). Which in the heat was absolutely miserable. A warning to purchase cold water or something would've helped butac would've been better. Anyways, the lodge itself was great. Delicious food. Great staff. Our guide Lima was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Made us things from the rainforest. Showed us plenty of wildlife. Really had a great time with him.

Dear Naveed!
I was really excited to read this report of your Brazilian holiday, I'm really happy that our organization has contributed to making this holiday unforgettable and that you had a good time with our trusted guides! Your feedback is essential for us to understand in which direction to go for constant improvement, so I will bring up the question of the transfer without air conditioning so that it doesn't happen again!
I hope to hear from you again in the future if you want to discover other areas of the huge and very interesting Brazil!
Warm greetings from Rio
