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. Others On Sundays and Mondays, the Amazon Theater is closed. Tourists will be able to visit the panoramic section but will not be able to enter the theatre. Redeem informationVoucher type: PrintedPrinted Voucher.
