“Bill Grimes is the living embodiment of genteel hospitality. He is quick with a kind word, self-effacing, thoughtful, kind, funny and articulate. I always head to the Dawn On The Amazon café when in Iquitos, partly for the very good food, but much more for Bill’s most excellent company and conversation.” - Chris Kilham

Dawn on the Amazon Tours and Amazon cruises on the upper Amazon River and its tributaries from Iquitos, Peru. Study rain forest flora and fauna. Add over 100 tropical birds to your list bird watching. Watch for pink dolphins. Catch the fiercest freshwater fighters on the planet, peacock bass. Or just get away from it all with a jungle walk in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. The Dawn on the Amazon riverboat is big enough to be comfortable and small enough to access the tributaries and lagoons where larger cruise ships can not go.

Bill and lovely wife Marmalita, are also the proprietors of Dawn on the Amazon Café, an oasis of great food and stimulating conversation in the river city of Iquitos on the historic riverfront promenode. “They make excellent salads, which you can eat safety, and they make a great iced coffee. They're vegetarian friendly, and also feature foods that fit the Ayahuasca diets.” – Zoe Helene
