Since our tour guides are the locals of the Amazon rainforest, you will be exposed to the authentic cultures and way of life here instead of the tourist-centric experience.
Over the decade working as tour guides, we have built an extensive network of trust with various lodge operators, boat captains, and locals in the area. Our deep knowledge on different archipelagos areas have to offer a customized experiences that is suitable for all ages, interests, fitness and budgets.
Our tours are guided by the locals with the intention of providing sustainable income as an alternative or supplement to farming or commercial fishing. We strive to maximize utilization of the existing local marketplace and we believe in fair wages and profit sharing with the local community.
Magno was our guide in a trip/stay at the Rio Negro. We had lots of fun with him and he taught us a lot about the local wildlife. He is a human swiss knife! Great trip and experience. 100% recommended!
We are an American family with two 10 and 12 year old children who travels extensively, so to have my boys say it was the best vacation speaks volume, and Magno made it happen. We booked via Gero tour and we're lucky to be paired with him. We spent 6 days at the height of the water level, so most of the tours were by boat. His easy going friendly attitude, his knowledge for the rainforest (wild life, botanics, local traditions, jungle survival skills, etc.), his eagle eyes, his caring for my children's safety, and his amazing language skills (he speaks 5 languages and even reads and writes Japanese and Chinese!) all made us feel safe, well informed and have so much fun. He worked seamlessly with a local guide Fabiano, and went above and beyond to ensure we have a good time. He and Fabiano even taught us how to make crafts with palm shoots. We feel we now have a friend in the Amazon, and we can't wait to come back to see more of this amazing place with Magno.
We are a group of 5 British/Brazilian people (age 23-25) who went on a 4 day 3 night Gero Amazon tour with Magno and Fabiano as tour guides in June 2022. We met and travelled with Magno from Manaus and spent a lot of time with him over the tour. Magno was such an amazing tour guide, his knowledge about the rainforest and its animals was astounding and he went above and beyond to ensure we all had an interesting and fun time!! We did a range of hikes and boat trips, saw some amazing animals (pink dolphins, cayman, sloths, range of birds etc), saw beautiful sunsets and camped overnight in the jungle. Magno was such a fun, friendly person and meeting him on the tour was a real highlight of our time in Brazil. We would highly recommend him as a tour guide and thank you for such a great trip!!!
The Amazon was an amazing experience, but Magno made the entire trip what it was. Best tour guide in the Amazon! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
The trip with Magno was extraordinary. He knows so much about the Amazonas and the animals and presents it to you in a way that is easy to understand. The trip in general was perfectly organised by him and I highly recommend doing it.
