  • On Trogon Tours’ services for his two tours with us to Argentina

    All of our experiences with Trogon were good. First of all, they are very responsive, answering queries promptly and honestly…that counts when you’re a long way away.

    On our first trip with them, to Iguazu and Ibera, two things went wrong, neither of which had anything to do with Trogon. On the first morning of our trip the flight from Buenos Aires to Iguazu was cancelled because of fog, after many hours of us waiting at the airport. Aerolineas Argentinas were useless in the circumstances but Trogon managed to get us the last tickets on an overnight bus and had their city representative come to the airport, take us to the bus station, collect our tickets and see us safely on our way. Miguel and his driver drove three hours to pick us up on arrival.

    My wife was taken ill on the trip and Miguel was wonderfully helpful, driving us to three different clinics and then rearranging things to move us out earlier than planned.

    Not to give the wrong impression…we have had wonderful experiences with Trogon…just to say that, if anything did go wrong, they will look after you completely.

    Our second trip, to Patagonia, was absolutely brilliant in all ways. Everything went perfectly smoothly, and our guide, Pablo, was so knowledgeable and so likeable that we now consider him a real friend…

    In summary, I can absolutely recommend Trogon. I don’t find them cheap, but Argentina is quite an expensive country for wildlife tours, compared to others I’ve visited. I think you will ‘get what you pay for’ however and have a great time with them.

  • On his 2017 private Brazil tour

    “I found Trogon incredibly friendly, honest and very helpful. I must admit I was a little anxious as I had not heard of them before but I need not have worried. We had a 4 week personalised trip where nothing at all went wrong. It went exactly to plan and was so well organised, that we maximised our wildlife watching and saw 518 different species of birds, 40 different mammals, many butterflies and several reptiles. I liked the fact that they could cater for both birders and people who enjoyed all aspects of wildlife. Our guide Regina was exceptional and went our of her way to add on and develop activities to suit our requirements.”

    …”Just a quick mail to thank you so much for arranging our itineraries to Salta and Iguazu. We had a wonderful time and both Mario and Paula were absolutely great guides. Of course we spent much more time with Mario and the pace and focus of the trip was perfect… my daughters both enjoyed the birding that we did do and one has taken some amazing photos with her new camera in the humming bird garden.

    Thank you for putting this trip together for us.”

    ”We have just arrived back in England after the most incredible holiday in Argentina and Antarctica. It has been a holiday of a lifetime. All our arrangements worked out really well and the days we spent with Trogon Tours truly added so much to our experience. Our only sadness is that we were not able to spend more time in Argentina and see more of the beautiful country and wildlife. We already feel that we must return and shall be looking to spend more time there before too long. Many thanks once again and hope we will catch up with you at the Birdfair in August.”

    ”My husband and I just spent a month in Argentina, in the capable hands of Trogon Tours. Everything worked without a hitch. All the hotels were excellent and I can’t say enough about the guides. They were knowledgeable, but, more important, they understood our expectations (photography was number one with us).

  • On her 2010 private Argentina birding tour

    ”Knowing that I could arrive in Argentina and that everything relating to my birding trip had been organised for me upfront took a lot of pressure off the planning phase. My guide, Lucas, was passionate about birds, committed to finding those stubborn or rare birds and made us feel at ease. I would recommend the experience of birding with Trogon Tours to anyone and would most definitely bird with them again should I find myself in Argentina again.”

  • On his 2011 private Northern Pampas birding tour

    ”I would like to tell you had a wonderful guide you have in Lucas Marti. He led us for your short tour of the northern pampas last week near Buenos Aires. His birding skills were superb. He has a great ear for calls and put us on almost everything we tried for. I was most impressed. On top of that, he very friendly, spoke very good English and was a pleasure to spend time with. I would love to be in the field again with him on any potential future trips. Thanks for such a good experience.”

  • On her 2010 NW Argentina tour with The Travelling Naturalist

    ”Valerie & David have both asked me to thank you again for our wonderful tour of NW Argentina. You looked after us so nicely & we saw more than any of us had expected. 61 Cacti was a magnificent total, finishing with that unexpected Pereskia but so much more besides. The scenery, particularly up from Purnamarca was stunning.”

  • On his 2010 Best of Argentina tour with Rockjumper Birding Tours

    “Just a note to thank you for a great trip. The countryside was wonderful, and the birds were over the top. Think that I particularly enjoyed birding the Ibera Marsh and El Palmar National Park. Favorite bird? That’s a tough one, although I’m always a sucker for woodpeckers. They also tend to stay still and are large! The Falls were far more impressive than either James and I expected them to be. We’ve talked up the trip to alot of our friends, And you and your expertise were a very strong part of the tour. Many thanks!”

  • On their 2010 southern Brazil tour with Green Tours

    ”Thank you Trogon Tours for a very productive and enjoyable wildlife trip to Brazil (Caraca, Canastra, Chapada dos Guimaraes, and Pantanal) and Iguazu. Our guides (Lucas and Martin) worked tirelessly on our behalf and we cannot praise them enough. The detailed organisation and execution of the trip was excellent. We have experienced many similar trips worldwide over the last 10 years and this was one of the very best. Importantly for us, photographic opportunities were excellent, particularly in the Pantanal and obviously at Iguazu. Flights throughout were punctual, food throughout was good or very good, no one experienced tummy bugs and lodges were chosen carefully for quality and/or wildlife. Overall, we saw 26 mammals, including a very mentionable cat (Jaguar) and 250 plus birds. So thanks again for a truly memorable experience.”

    ”Debbie and I have just returned from Argentina and Brazil where we had the great pleasure of having Miguel as a guide for part of the trip. We travel a lot and recognize a great guide when we have one. Miguel has the personality, knowledge and language skills to make a trip truly memorable. We will be returning to South America regularly in the coming years and plan to make Trogon Tours a part of our planning.”
