We had a 3 day Amazon tour with G Adventures after 4 day Inca Trail trekking. Amazon may give us an impression of survival tour and dangerous encounter to predators and I was fully prepared with malaria medication, Deet, cholera vaccine, etc... and it was definitely good for peace of mind. We saw tarantulas in their nest during night rainforest walk and a jaguar and Caymans from boat tour. Our guide Elvis appeared to be quiet, but he was a real jungle boy, spotting rare creatures and animals instead of just talking about them!
The lodges had no ceiling under the roof and we felt indescribable freedom in nature! We had an afternoon nap, listening to birds, insects and some monkeys, which was really comfortable and relaxing. As my friends and I are from Queensland, Australia, many trees and plants in rainforest are not that special, but there are a few interesting plants like the one you get bright purple colour dye from just a squeeze of a few green leaves. I was personally relieved because the tour was physically not too hard on us and it was rather relaxing instead.
