Incredible trip & lovely family business
Larissa_Z, July 2022
This trip was truly incredible! My boyfriend was more experienced than me, so I was quite scared at first, but our guide ("Bob") made me feel so at ease, he was very experienced and kind. And it was amazing to see the wildlife from this perspective, we even saw a monkey swim! Besides, he made some really nice pictures and videos for us/of us which we received for free. Also his family was really kind by the way, because (I think it was) his wife cooked a lovely meal for us and he showed us how they prepare their food, such as sugarcane. He also showed us the river from their backyard, which was a beautiful sight. Super grateful for this amazing experience! Definitely recommend!
