This unforgettable cruise-and-stay holiday reveals the sublime tranquility of the world’s greatest river and tropical rainforest, the Amazon, a haven for wildlife such as the spider monkey, scarlet macaw, caiman and the Amazon river dolphin.
This tour includes one night aboard aircraft.
If you're happy walking for three or four hours a day and you don't mind steep slopes and rough ground, these moderately-paced tours should be perfect for you. This rating also applies to some of our Active Explorer cruises, as there will be gangplanks and ladders to negotiate.
After taking Saga’s included UK VIP door-to-door travel service to Heathrow, depart in the morning for your daytime flight to Quito.
