We've spent 3 days in the jungle with Josuel. It was an amazing experience, Josuel is a very hardworking, sympathic and enthusiast guide. We had a chance to see a lot of different animals, he introduced us to a local family and we spent a night in the middle of jungle where we built our own shelter. We would do this tour again without a doubt !
I did not participate to any tour, I am just hosted for free by Josuel in his home in Manaus.I would like to write how much I am impressed by him, his kindness, his discretion, his calm, his sincerity.He is a really really good person, and, for me, the experience of living with him and his family is, in itself, an unforgettable adventure.I have no time to go in the jungle, but I understand why he gets so much praise in the other reviews.I don't know the other guides, but for sure Josuel is fantastic.If you have the luck to have him as a guide, you will experiment both the experience of the true nice nature, and of a true nice human.
Josuel was an excellent guide in Amazonia. He showed everything he could for us. We saw an anaconda, a tarentula, some caimans and a lot of others animals! So beautiful and impressive! He explained everything about plants (for medecine or food for example) so very interesting! We fished piranhas and we ate it the day after, so funny and tasty!
I really recommand Josuel, Amazonia was one a my favourite memories of Brazil !
Josuel was a fantastic guide on our tour in the Amazon. He made sure all our needs and requests were met with, and was always willing to take us around. He is very knowledgable about the jungle and was very informative, he made us feel safe and in good hands at all times. My wish was to see a sloth up close and Josuel made sure I got the chance to do that. If I ever return to the amazon I will most definitely search for Josuel as my tour guide and I highly recommend him.
Me and a Friend made a very pleasent Dschungeltour with him.
It was realy comfortable to listen to him, because he´s a native english speaker and knows many interesting things about Plants and Animals.
He is a born Guide and you can feel that he loves the Rainforset.
