Aqua Expeditions is a Peru luxury tour operator. Moreover, it is the first ever adventure
travel company to begin five-star luxury cruises on the Amazon River in Peru. The
cruise company was launched in the year 2007 and its founder and CEO is Francesco
Galli Zugaro. The cruise was a dream of Galli Zugaro, who earlier used to work with a
boutique cruise tour operator in the Galapagos Islands. This long dreamed cruise takes
guests to one of the world's most beautiful and remote regions – 'the Amazon River in
Peru'. This Lima, Peru-based tour operator operates its first custom madeluxury cruise
ship, 'the M/V Aqua' year round, sailing on 7, 4 and 3 night itineraries - from and to -
Iquitos, Peru and taking passengers on a lavish journey to the sources of the Amazon,
the remote Pacaya Samiria Reserve and outside with fascinating wildlife watching and
shore excursions into the Amazon rainforest and jungle.
In April of the 2011, 'the M/V Aria' joined the M/V Aqua as a second luxury cruise ship on the Amazon. This custom made ship for Aqua Expeditions is built by Peruvian architect Jordi Puig to provide an amazing level of comfort for the guests. All of the beverages (non-alcoholic, beer and house wine) are included during the cruise voyage.
