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.”

On their 2010 private nature photo adventure in Southern Brazil.

…”We have just returned from a wonderful trip to Canastra, Das Emas, and the Pantanal and thoroughly enjoyed each place. The guides and drivers were superb, and we enjoyed their company. They were very knowledgeable, caring, and patient with us. The trip exceeded our expectations. We saw animals we never thought we would encounter. We got within ten feet of an anteater, photographed a tapir at night, and even met up with about fifty white-lipped peccary crossing the road.

Regina and the park guide, Tony, found the beautiful and strange giant anteater, which allowed us to come very close and take amazing photos of him. They were very helpful in spotting some impressive birds and showing us the physical beauty of Canastra. We loved the park very much. Lucas has a very keen eye and after much searching, located two jaguars for us. It was an exciting moment. We even saw more river otters than we ever expected. Lucas brought us to a hyacinth macaw nest so we got very close shots of the birds…

…It was a unique trip because both Regina and Lucas made us feel at home and comfortable with them, providing us with a very special adventure in Brazil. They are genuinely lovely people. We highly recommend Trogon Tours”…

Warmest regards and many grateful thanks for a well-planned adventure.

“Bolivia was fabulous! There were breath-taking views from the moment of landing until the day of departure. The cultural experiences of the Carnival, the local band and dance performance and the parade will forever put a smile on my face.

Miguel, it was great traveling with you once again. You are so willing to share your knowledge whether it be about birds, the local fauna or Bolivia in general. And you always seemed to know where to look for that hard to see bird!

I look forward to traveling with you again.”

“Kristine & I arrived on-time back in NYC this Saturday morning. We have so many wonderful birds, places, people, and feelings of Argentina fresh in our minds and hearts. Thanks especially to you & all of the others, with good wishes for many more great tours and success with all your ventures.

I feel we were very lucky to be on this tour with such a nice group so “simpatico” in enjoying nature & the many wonderful places you brought us to.

Until we meet again…

“Just wanted to thank you for a great trip. We had a wonderful time and our guide Patricio was very good. He is very knowledgeable of the birds and was fun to have around. He took very good care of us. The Hotel Orchedea was perfect accommodations for us and we had lots of fun in town on our free day. The hotel staff, cab drivers, Paula – our guide in the park, were all kind and caring and made our trip special. And a special thanks for the lunch we had prior to our departure. It was the perfect place to eat before leaving.
