    Wait wait I changed everything!!! I did a few tours with Milton!!! Book with him!! 150% recommended!!! Milton is out of this world stupendous!!! He made me feel 100% safe, taken care of, and he and his team of local guides showed so many great things!!! I felt for 4 days I was a local who had an inside track on EVERYTHING in the area!!! He was very trusting, very thorough, fast on his feet, in a place that does not lend itself to any of this. It felt like I booked one simple “Rubber boom tour” and through many small bumps in the road and twists and turns due to unforeseen circumstance like the pandemic. and weather, and logistics, instead of those things derailing my plans with Milton and his crew of locals it actually made the trip blossomed into a multifaceted multi day event of many tours which allowed me a behind the scenes tour of nearly all the highlights of this amazing part of the world called Manaus!!! MILTON AND HIS CREW ARE THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spending the day with Milton exploring Manaus' fascinating rubber boom history was a definite highlight of our stay in the city! He knew his stuff and put together an interesting itinerary that included not only the well-known (and very impressive) opera house but also an outdoor museum of the rubber baron era to which we had to take a boat. I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to know why Manaus is Manaus.

Really good guide in Milton Fernandes made the trip very enjoyable, informative and interesting. Able to all answer questions and would recommend him highly.
