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 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

I got to know about the agency through a local friend, because I didn't remember about it on TripAdvisor, since others had more reviews. It happens that it's actually one of the oldest ones, if not the most (1965!). And they have offices at the...More

This was a brilliantly organised trip with a wonderful buffet lunch. Julio (our guide) was brilliant - full of information but not too pushy - just the right combination of information and letting us see things for ourselves. I'm sure that there are more economical...More
