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

I will simply describe the entire experience as FANTASTIC as the crew, the accommodations, the food, the drink and the security were first rate and second to none! Let me begin by describing the boat. We were... 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

The customer service provided by the booking company, Rainforest Cruises was top-notch. Remi, the agent we worked with, made the entire booking process easy and seamless. Our cabin was very nice with a big river-view window, comfortable bed,... 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.

We boarded the Delfin II and instantly fell in love with the boat, the staff, and the river. Many people speak about the food on these reviews and it was excellent. However, I wish to speak about the experience itself of being on the Amazon River. From piranha fishing to kayaking, swimming in the river, seeing pink dolphins, getting up... More
