What our clients say about us

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.” Mike Addis – UK

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.” Gary Ludi – Atlanta GA, USA
