About Amazon Explorers - Private Day tours
It was a fresh start, a very difficult one; especially at a time when tourism in this region was limited to a few fishing trips planned for some directors of Panair do Brasil and a few foreigners who wanted to venture themselves in the Amazon jungle, which was known as GREEN HELL around here. In 1965, the idealist, Manuel Alcy Goes Barros, founded Amazon Explorers, giving his first steps toward the growth of tourism in this region, supported by Bulbol and Trados families, who also had a very futuristic view concerning this issue. Since its foundation, Amazon Explorers has been very proud to offer very nice tours with the same responsibility and lots of joy. Eury Barros, his brother and sister have managed the agency with a lot of responsibility to increase the number of services offered to their customers; services such as: Airline tickets, Domestic and International Tours, Language Courses abroad and the Reception of cruise liners at the local harbor. The name of the agency, Amazon Explorers, was suggested by Richard Brill, an American who fell in love with our region. And it is this spirit of affection which is required to explore the Amazon consciously in order to preserve its environment and to promote a better relationship between man and nature. This is how AMAZON EXPLORERS sees the future in tourism.

This tour is fabulous! They picked us up at our hotel, drove us to the meeting place where we met up with the rest of our tour group, and off we went! They pack so much fun into one day, yet we never felt rushed....More

This was a great tour for our family of 3. I had hoped for a longer swim with the pink dolphin, but understand the regulations are to maintain safety for the animal. Everyone was very professional on the boat. We were provided a great translation...More
