We arrived at the Zafiro boat on a beautiful sunny afternoon, and were welcomed aboard by the crew forming a band singing songs and making lively music with local instruments. We were greeted with cocktails. We checked into our Zafiro suite, and our two children checked into their balcony suite adjacent to our room. Zafiro is the newest luxury boat... More

The Amazon experience on the Cattleya was excellent and recommended. We booked it through Rainforest Cruises and it was a pleasure to deal with Remi who was so responsive from beginning to end. The vessel itself is very finely designed and built, the right size for an intimate and personalized trip up the various rivers in the upper Amazon. With... More

A very full and interesting week on the Amatista which was one of the old wooden boats, extremely comfortable and the food was excellent. Visits to villages, jungle, tributaries full of flocks of birds and other animals.
