Last minute World Cup: an Amazon cruise to England’s first fixture
With fewer than 50 days to the World Cup in Brazil, England fans still have the chance to soak up the tournament’s unique atmosphere and see one of the world's natural wonders with an Amazon boat trip that arrives in town for England’s opening fixture.
Accommodation for the duration of the tour is a traditional Amazon riverboat, and itineraries are conveniently built around the tournament. They include a tour of the city, a stop at the lavish Opera House, and a visit to a colourful Manaus market on match day. Plus, the boat’s bar is equipped with a flat-screen satellite TV so you can watch the drama on board if you haven’t got tickets.
A five-day World Cup Cruise with Rainforest Cruises, departing 11 June, starts from £1,299 per person and includes all meals, snacks and drinking water. www.rainforestcruises.com.
