What Our Guests are Saying

We went on the 7-day cruise with the Aria Amazon. A truly wonderful trip. Luxurious ship, well-kept, great cabins, nice dining room, really nice bar/lounge, out-door jacuzzi and even a small gym with a treadmill and an exercise bike. All members of the crew were extremely nice and helpful. Cruise directors Fiorella and Jorge are outstanding and extremely professional. Impressive food. It is hard to understand how chef Juan Diego can create meals of this quality and variation considering all the challenges with delivieries in this somewhat remote area. The four naturalist guides George, Alex, Juan Luis and Roger are all extremely good, very knowledgeable and really nice to spend time with. The excursion programme is well composed, varied and interesting. The highlight of our trip was the early morning birding excursions with George and Roger. Four years ago I went on a 7 day cruise with the Aqua Mekong  from Saigon to Siem Reap. This cruise with the Aria Amazon was just as great.

Sawubona – South Africa

“An Amazon river cruise on the Aria Amazon will take you deep into the Peruvian jungle in five-star luxury.”

Wanted – South Africa

“Gillian McLaren hits the bucket-list big-time on a thoroughly exotic, luxury adventure along the Amazon River with Aqua Expeditions.”

Conde Nast Traveller – UK

“One of the high points of the trip is visiting a Buddhist temple, where we speak to a pair of monks, who then bless us individually and give out good faith bracelets. Afterwards, a speed boat whisks us off to a sandy stretch of riverbank where a makeshift bar has been set up, just in time for the sunset. It’s the perfect moment to reflect on a trip that offers an incredible chance to delve deeper into this fascinating country.”

Cruise International – UK

“Aqua Expeditions specializes in river ship cruises and sails the Mekong in Cambodia and Vietnam as well as the Amazon, with its two boutique ships, Aqua Mekong and Aria Amazon.”
