    El servicio de los guias y la tripulacion es realmente muy bueno. Todos atentos a responder las preguntas, muy preparados en cuanto al lugar, animales, costumbres d la zona, la fluidez con el ingles para los turistas extranjeros hizo q sintiera orgullo!!! El barco LA PERLA nos dijeron q era el mas nuevo del grupo y sin ser el mas lujoso tenia todas las comodidades q uno puede esperar: comedor, bar, patio c hamacas y mesas al aire libre habitacion y baños impecables y c detalles. Todos c vista al rio y a la selva. Itinerario. Perfecto. Recojo del aeropuerto y trasslado a nauta y d alli al barco.

    Zafiro, 2022

    I had the opportunity to do the 4 day cruise ... and I must say it is one of the best experiences I have ever had! Although it may seem like a high cost, it is not if you consider that it includes everything! Meals, drinks, excursions everything! And of the best quality!

    From the facilities, each of the delicious and varied meals and especially the perfectly organized excursions! The bath in the river is memorable, the walks through the reserve impressive!

    It is a success wherever you see it! Recommended a thousand times! Luxury service; you feel cocky from the first minute! Once you step on the cruise you don't have to worry about anything!

    And the perfect beds to regain sleep! Wherever it looks 100% recommended.
