Highlights Of One Week In Guyana With Guided Cultural Tours part 1 of 2
Join Americans (from Tennessee) Michael Drake and David Galluzzi as you view just a few of the highlights of their May 18-27 2012 tailor-made combined Adventure, Culture & Nature Tour of Guyana (the ONLY English speaking Amazon Basin country in South America) - booked with guidedculturaltours.com. As we are proud to boast - these intrepid young men became the FIRST outsiders to see a waterfall near the Bununi River (among other firsts) that only 5 local tribesmen have ever seen! They camped right next to a tree being clawed by a Jaguar as a territorial marker, and bathed in a river inhabited by Giant Black Caiman, Amazon stingray and Electric Eels - and they caught by hand over a dozen species of snakes during their nightly guided hikes. They also did mountain-bike riding for several miles and drove cattle on horseback in a Makushi Tribal Village, filmed a Giant Anteater, monkeys, and saw Toucans, Hawks, Vultures, Macaws, Parrots etc. The Jaguarundi wild cat pictured was caged briefly for filming purposes and to determine it's gender then released back into the wild. If you want a run-of the Mill Guyana experience go with one of the many other options available to you...but if you want to go OFF the beaten track and see things & places NO-ONE ELSE has - contact us via our website at www.guidedculturaltours.com Every single tour we have done has been unique, we offer you an Adventure not a vacation!

The Centre for Fortean Zoology expedition has
turned up some amazing information and strange
creatures never before heard of in the west.
The team interviewed witnesses to a strange race of
undiscovered mountain dwelling pygmies, These tiny
red faced men appear to inhabit caves and have
been seen in both north and south Guyana. At 3.5
feet tall the pygmies may be related to Homo
floresensis discovered a couple of years ago in
They also heard tell of the Di-Di (pronounced
'Die-Die') a yeti like hairy giant 8-10 feet tall. As

We also heard tales of what must be a new species of
tiny red Caiman that emits a loud bellowing totally at
odds with it's diminutive size.
We were also the first human beings outside of the
Makushi tribe to see an ancient cave burial site
discovered by a local hunter in 2005 and seen by only
a handful of tribesmen from one village.
The group intends to return in 2008 to seek out a
monster anaconda said to lurk in the remote Corona
The expedition was guided by Damon Corrie, a
descendant heir of the now ceremonial hereditary
Chieftaincy of the Eagle Clan of the Arawak tribe.
Damon (who literally chased down a Giant Anteater for
us so we could get close-up footage) runs the
excellent 'Guided Cultural Tours'. This company allows
explorers to see the real Guyana and meet the true
people of the country, the Amerindians. If you want a
taste of the real Guyana, off the beaten track and
away from tourist traps then 'Guided Cultural Tours'
is the way to do it.
Guyana is a true lost world and Damon Corrie a
real life Professor Challenger."
