Can't believe I did this, but I did. I can now say I survived in the Amazon!

Cool tour, I leaned a lot about how to survive in the Amazon! Ate some odd things but it was fun! Definitely worth doing.

This was an interesting tour. Learned about plants, how to trap animals, shoot a blow gun, and climb some trees. It was a good experience. The tour guide was decent. They hustled us at the end for some "sacred ritual" for R$20 a person. I guess a way to help the guide and tribe make some extra cash on the side that Viator probably doesn't know about. Lunch was basically rice and beans and some bone in chicken. Overall, not bad, dont like getting hustled by the guides for some "sacred ritual"
