An included tour of the city.

An included tour of the city. While the city is interesting, it is large and we only had one official stop at a lookout. Taking photos through a bus window was not great.

We saw all of the highlights, including a tour of the Opera House, and learned about the history of Manaus. Our bus was cool and comfortable and our guide was entertaining. We had time at the end of the tour to wander through the marketplace, which was built of decorative iron back in the late 1800's and was recently completely restored. The wares being sold were interesting with a mix of tourist and local items, with many different food items. It was not a high pressure market. atmosphere. Read Less

Nice overview of the life and city. City run down, but full of bargains which kind of tricks you because there’s a 25% tax.

Sail Date: December 2017
Very poor and a waste of time. We wanted to get a good overview of the city and its history. Our guide was more interested in showing us how the poor people live and the government housing provided for them.

Really only see a Rubber Baron's home and the Opera house and then, only from the outside. Others who went on their own were able to walk into both buildings and even got a free tour of Opera House.
