My time with Amizade GSL and West Virginia University volunteers

When I was contacted by Lais Amoeba Alexander to organise this day tour I bluntly accepted the mission and I kew it would an easy and fun task. The Idea was a brief visit the meeting of the waters between the Tapajos and Amazon Rivers then explore Maica river. Several Toco Toucans, flocks of short-tailed parrots, rauvcous Festive Amazon, Potoos, Pink Dolphins, Egrets, Herons, Kingfishers, Horned Screamers, Hoatzins and several sloths are on our birdlife list. Lots of other great moments to remember.

Although I am reluctant to operate in the other ports in the Amazon I am improving my tours in Santarem and Alter do chao area. My challenge is to provide a great Amazon Experience at the shortest time, enjoying Nature while addressing environmental issues, History and above all having a bit of fun in the safest way.
There is by far enough information about our work on Cruise Critic, Trip Advisor, Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Trip Wolf or my website (www.gilserique.com) but dont hesitate to write and ask for more

Join us and live a memorable Amazon Experience.
