Aqua Expeditions Makes Presentation of Luxury Cruise on Amazon River
Francesco Galli Zugaro, CEO of Aqua Expeditions that operates luxury cruise on the Amazon River, made his first call to Japan and hosted a dinner reception for the Japanese travel industry. Zugaro made an ardent appeal for a river cruise, saying that travelers can enjoy both exciting adventures along the Amazon River and pleasant river cruise at the same time. The river in the Peruvian territory has clear water and is abundant in wildlife. Travelers who take the voyage are likely to have a chance to come across pink dolphin. Masao Egi, managing director of Condor Travel Japan, who helped arrange the reception this time, says, â€œPeople will enjoy traveling in Peru in a quite different style,â€ persuading travel agencies to market tours that incorporate the cruise.
Zugaro proposes a tour that combines excursions to Machu Picchu, Colca Canyon, and Lake Titicaca with Amazon River cruise, explaining that Iquitos is easily accessible from Lima by a direct flight. Global Youth Bureau Co. has released a tour that features visits to the monuments at Sican, Sipan, Machu Picchu, and Cuzco in addition to the cruise, and has a good response from consumers, so it is going to repeat the same tour next year. The cruise is operated on the luxury cruise ship â€œAquaâ€ built in 2007 which, rather small in size, accommodates 24 guests and is boarded by 21 crew and three professional guides, so that the guests, mainly wealthy travelers, can enjoy thorough and elaborate services on board. There are three courses of three-night-four-days, four-night-five-days, and seven-night-eight-days, each starting from Iquitos, Peru. Now, Aqua Expeditions is having a new ship â€œAriaâ€ constructed with 16 cabins for 32 guests, which goes into service in April 2011.
