    Spent an incredible week in the Amazon on the Zafiro. The crew made us feel right at home. They were caring and attentive to our needs. Angela our cruise director was adorable. She did everything to make our stay over the top enjoyable.

    Our naturalist we spent each day with were so knowledgeable I learned a ton. Thank you Daniel, Juan and Segundo for taking care of us and teaching us how precious our world is and how we need to do our part to preserve it. Thank you for sharing your home country with us.

    Thank you to all the staff on the Zafiro for all your kindness. Thank you chef for the awesome meals, wait staff and Herbert for making our room clean and tidy all the time and especially for bringing our clothes back fresh and clean. Couldn’t have made it with no luggage without you!!

    A must while you are on board is a massage by Romy. Very relaxing after a day on the skiffs. Plus she is always there to give you your life vest. Romy was delightful and always had a smile on her face.

    When we arrived we were strangers, when we left we were family.

    We have been at El Zafiro de Jungle Experiences from December 28 to January 04, 2020. It has exceeded all our expectations. It has been a journey that we will never forget. We thank all the staff, we do not mention names so as not to leave us to anyone, all their dedication, efficiency, kindness and details. Great food.

    When I booked and read the comments, I thought that maybe people were exaggerating, but the truth is that it is a spectacular trip and everything I had read fell short. Also, to round off the trip we have met some fabulous travel companions.

    Thank you, thank you for everything

    Zafiro, 2021

    We went on a trip that we did not know how it could turn out, it was something short, interesting and close to our country so we did not have greater expectations, but we never imagined that it could be like in the movies, we took 1 night in Iquitos and the Sapphire Cruise of 3 nights, the infrastructure of the boat very nice, its dining room, bar, terrace etc; from the reception at the airport, then the next day they picked us up at the hotel, all very punctual, and correct, the reception on the boat, needless to say. our guides: Daniel and Edgard on the excursions, they are exceptional, their wisdom at another level, a truly luxurious organization and precision in everything; the concern in making Spanish and English speaking passengers have the opportunity to understand everything in their languages, kindness and professionalism of the entire ship's crew, starting with Fiorella its director, El Capitan, Charles, Milton, Romy, Allison our driver From the boat in the reserves the chef with his delicious meals, really, forgive me those who did not retain his name but thank you all very much for an unforgettable experience; all WONDERFUL and unique,
