Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises ranks number one on TripAdvisor

Good news.

I joined TripAdvisor over seven years ago, in October 2007. It took a lot of time to figure out how to list Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises, and I agonized over which category was most appropriate, (there is no cruise category), and after much thought and worry, I listed Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises under Things to do in Iquitos – Activities.

I paid almost no attention to TripAdvisor back then. It was over a year before we got our first review, and over another year before we got our second review.

It wasn’t until I listed Dawn on the Amazon Cafe that I realized how much influence TripAdvisor has over tourism. Our first 13 reviews were 5 stars, we went straight to number one. Many of our customers told me “We came because we saw you rank number one on TripAdvisor.”

Gasp, what about Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises. I think we ranked number four. Our next ten reviews were excellent 5 stars. We moved into third place and then eventually second place, but guess who had always been number one under Things to do – Activities? The Butterfly Farm! That nearly every one loves…How many times did I tell myself there is no shame being behind the Butterfly Farm? I was resigned to be number two forever.

Then last week it happened. Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Cruises became the number one Thing to do – Activity in Iquitos, at the same time Dawn on the Amazon Cafe is the number one restaurant in Iquitos. This is a great accomplishment for the Dawn on the Amazon team, from the night watchman to the riverboat pilot, from the waitress to the head cook, thank you all for your dedication to excellence…and thanks to our clients and customers for appreciating our products and services.

With your help, we can continue to rank number one. If you have enjoyed a tour or cruise with Dawn on the Amazon, we would appreciate your reviews on TripAdvisor and Facebook. Thank you for your support.

All of the cruises were great!! Love the boats – and the crews were a lot of fun.

(I am glad you also did the tours of Belen Market – getting a good overview of the market was great as it made it easier to go back by youself for a day of shopping.)

You’re number one for a good reason, Bill. You’re a first class person who really cares about people. And everything you do is “First Class.”
