One of the best experiences in River Cruises with amazing boats in South America, in the heart of the Peruvian Amazon, and in SouthEast Asia, in Vietnam and Cambodia. The guides are the best, the food is amazing and the views always breathtaking. In both regions Aqua offers us the opportunity to get in visit with almost untouched communities. An amazing way to understand a destination as a traveller, not a tourist.

Stride Review

Founded in 2007, they operate luxury river cruises around the world.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Their two luxury ships, the Aria Amazon and the Aqua Mekong sail (as you might expect) down the Amazon and Mekong. Focusing in just these two areas, Aqua Expeditions allows you to truly get to know a destination through their expertise. They also approach their travels from a sustainable approach, incorporating responsible activities into their shore excursions.

Who Travels With Them?

River cruises are ideally suited to, and popular amongst, older travelers. However younger travelers may enjoy the more adventurous locations traveled by Aqua Expeditions. 

Where Do They Operate?

They focus specifically on Peru via the Amazon, and Cambodia and Vietnam via the Mekong River. Along their cruises they operate shore excursions  

Why Travel With Them?

For a luxury cruise along some of the world’s most entrancing rivers. Should you like to extend your stay, for a hike to Machu Picchu for example, they have a number of preferred operators they work with which will help arrange this for you.

From Aqua Expeditions

Aqua Expeditions was launched in 2007 by founder and CEO, Francesco Galli Zugaro, to fulfill his dream of bringing unparalleled travel experiences, in the utmost comfort, to modern-day adventurers cruising the world’s greatest rivers.

Beginning with the Peruvian section of the Amazon River, one of the world’s last great unexplored regions, Galli Zugaro commissioned the custom design of the Aqua Amazon, the first cruiseship to set sail on this stretch of the Amazon. With 12 outward facing suites, and entirely customized by acclaimed Peruvian architect Jordi Puig, the Aqua Amazon offers a level of luxury unprecedented on the Amazon. With hand-crafted Amazon River itineraries from and to the remote Amazonian city of Iquitos, the Aqua Amazon carries travelers to the source of the Amazon and the remote Pacaya Samiria Reserve. NIGHT MONKEYExpert professional naturalist guides lead guests in small groups by skiff up Amazon River tributaries to first-hand encounters with Amazon wildlife from pink dolphins and piranha, to capuchin monkeys and three toed sloth hiding in the rainforest canopy, and hoatzin, toucans and macaws gliding seemingly effortlessly across the cloudless, cerulean sky.
