Q: What is the difference to the other ordinary Expeditions of Amazing Tours Agency?
A: Our ordinary tours are designed as jungle expeditions. They typically have a longer duration

small (maximum 3 participants per guide), the program is more flexible. On the other hand,
the costs per person are higher. Manaus Jungle hostel is an excellent alternative for
backpackers travelling on budget, who do not mind the “hostel athmosphere”.
