1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


Traveling in the Amazon, unfortunately they had the worse floods in 60 years which made getting ashore more difficult but exciting!!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Go for it!! But plan well ahead and take the appropriate clothing etc.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


When in Rio a trip to the Flavella'a was beneficial to the local people, as I understand that the tour operator paid a percentage, plus the visitors purchased drinks in their local bars. Also when at the Eco Lodge in the Amazon visit the indigenous people and buy souvenirs from them.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Trip of a life time!!
