Unique experience

Reviewed March 6, 2020

If you are looking for a real adventure, Demion is the man for you! His knowledge of the jungle is unique. The time we spend together was not touristic at all, he learned me how to hunt, to build a camp, he knew so much about the nature and the traditions. It was one of the best experiences I ever had! Even after the trip he took care about me and my brother when we had some trouble. To really feel what it means to live in the jungle you have to contact this guy!

Thank you so much!

Excellent guide

Reviewed October 4, 2019

Demion is very thoughtful and passionate. We had a 3-day tour with him. The journey was a bit longer than we expected but worth traveling. The inn was a floating house far inside a branch of the Amazon River. From there, Demion led us go fishing, jungle hiking, bird watching, alligator spotting. Then when back to Manaus, he booked a good day-trip for us to see pink dolphins and visit Indigenous people. Before we go he took us to some market where the price is fair. The most touching part is, I went to swim with dolphins and was about to took a night bus back and had nowhere to change. He let me use his shower which is very kind.

5 days in the jungle!!

Reviewed June 12, 2018

I recently did a 5 day jungle trek with Demion the absolute legend! We did a survival tour, so we had to catch our food daily. He showed me how to catch a variety of fish in the river using traditional methods he learnt growing up, we even caught some fish with a spear!  We also went and caught caimans by night which was an experience ill never forget.

Demion taught me how to identify a wide variety of edible fruits in the jungle, i was climbing up trees and fetching some amazing and delicous fruits unique to the amazon.

Demions knowledge of the jungle is astounding,  hes like a jungle encyclopedia.  He also introduced me to some small comunitys along the river of which he has a strong relationship, to be welcomed in with such open arms into these amazing little communitys was a really unique experience. After the 5 days sleeping in hammocks and living off the land i found a true friend in Demion, hes an all round great guy with a massive heart. I wish you all the best Demion and look forward to seeing you in the future ✊

3 days in Manaus with Damien

Reviewed May 24, 2018

Damien is an excellent guide. We spent 3 days with him in Manaus. First in a hotel on the borders of the Amazon. He took us to the jungle, showed us a Manioc factory, introduced us to fishing with just a reed, showed us how to catch a baby crocodile in the middle of the night. Then in Manaus where we visited a market, then rented a boat to visit an old rubber factory, meet natives in a typical village and finally swim with pink dolphins. Damien was very protective, very professional and of a remarkable kindness. In reviewing the photos of this trip, I often think of him and keep these days, one of the best memories of my 3 weeks trip to Brazil.
