Ausflüge in Manaus - Manus City Tour.
Ausflüge in Manaus: Opulently bold architecture, a rich historical and cultural heritage and an unbeatable location in the middle of the Amazonian jungle makes this city tour of Manaus an unforgettable experience.
This 3-hour tour begins with an exhilarating 11-mile riverfront drive along the Ponta Negra towards the floating port of Manaus. Manaus is the Amazon’s largest city and a major port. The rags to riches story of Manaus will intrigue as you learn how this city was at the centre of Brazil’s rubber boom that lasted between 1890 and 1920. The city experienced 30 years of huge prosperity that was short lived because foreigners came and poached the rubber seeds for their own benefit! Evidence of this lavish golden age can be seen in the sumptuous architecture dotted around the city. A fine example is the Rio Negro Palace, old official residence of the government and once residence of a wealthy rubber merchant, and where we start our tour.
As the tour continues you will visit the Indian Museum and the Salesiana Congregation to understand the traditions, habits and behaviour of the indigenous people. To bring your tour to a close we take you to the Justice Palace and the Teatro Amazonas. Financed by wealthy rubber barons, this fantastic theatre opened in 1896 and is considered to be a highlight of Manaus. It is an extraordinary example of the wealth and greatness of the age of the rubber boom and still hosts concerts to this day.

Ausflüge in Manaus - Marvelous Waterfalls.
Ausflüge in Manaus: Journey deep into the heart of Amazonia and visit some of the most sensational waterfalls in the Manaus region. Pay homage to Mother Nature at the Sanctuary Waterfall followed by a traditional Brazilian lunch before heading to the Iracema Waterfall for the afternoon. Expect lots of water, lots of spray and lots of noise!
Leave Manaus in the morning and travel through the rainforest towards Presidente Figueiredo, a bustling town on the River Urubui. From here, make the trek to the famed Sanctuary Waterfalls (Cachoeira do Santuário) which is a complex featuring three cascades, with the largest some 5 metres high. The strong currents mean that as the water crashes against the rocks, the splash produces a fine mist, creating a truly beautiful sight. Despite the force of the water, small pools are formed on the banks of the river, allowing for a more leisurely bathing experience. As it contrasts with the vegetation, the water seems to take on a variety of colours while the banks are a mix of rocks and a dense tangle of roots. A statue of St Claire nestled behind one of the falls is the source of the name, Sanctuary Waterfall.
Head to a local restaurant and feast on a typical Brazilian lunch before continuing your jungle adventure with a visit to the impressive Iracema Waterfall. This 8 metre-high cascade is much wider than the Sanctuary falls and you can stand under the overhang to ‘take a shower’. During low tide, small natural pools form and you can enjoy a natural hot tub.

Duration: Eight hours.
Start/opening time: 8am.
