for 15 Days and 14 Nights

 

with Northeast Brazil Extension: From $1,590 US Dollars or £1,210 GBP* for 5 Days and 4 Nights

 

Inclusions: 

 

  • The Tour package includes all lodging, meals*, and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites. 

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. We often use Lelis Navarrete on these trips.

  • Top-Rated Preparation Services: We support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into Brazil, and information on travel health issues, packing information, and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.

  • Transport and Airport Transfers: Local ground (by vehicle and often large transport van) transport as described in the trip itinerary.   

  • Acre for Bird Conservation:  As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small-Group Pricing: All the above prices are for tour groups of five or six participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than five participants.

 

Important Note: 

  • Depending upon interest and group size, we can develop Amazon tour extensions in several other locations

 

Possible Additions to Basic Trip Pricing:

  • With Lelis Navarrete as Lead Guide: Add $100 US Dollars (or £80 GBP*) to the basic trip price for the additional costs of using South America's top birding guide.                         

 

*Pricing Notes and More Details:

 

  • US Dollar Pricing: The US Dollar has been fairly strong against the Brazilian Real in the last few years. Most pricing for the trip has been in US Dollars with most lodges switching to US Dollar pricing in recent years. Thus, we use US Dollars as the currency for pricing this trip. 

  • Pricing in British Pounds: (1) Our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of 1.31 US Dollars per British Pound (the exchange rate on March 8, 2022). (2) We will charge you the actual transaction rate here, but please note that we work to minimize transaction costs. Using Transferwise, we usually pay under one-half a percent (and sometimes less) on the actual exchange. (3) Due to costs related to UK travel regulations, our tours booked and paid through BlueTailBirding.com (for the UK and European clients) will cost 200 GBP more (and this price is reflected in our website pricing). Please contact us anytime about questions here.   

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom, and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does have supper, as we arrive at the lodge in the afternoon. The departure day includes only breakfast, as most flights leave in the morning.

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Most of our meals are provided by the lodges, and we follow their practices in providing beverages at mealtime. Breakfast usually includes coffee or tea and/or juice (as provided by the lodge), and box lunches include either bottled water or juice. Other beverages served at supper are your choice and are an additional expense that you pay to the restaurant directly. We provide water at the table for supper. We also provide bottled water during the birding day.

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 5 or 6 participants, and pricing is based on this group size. We will offer a moderate and reasonable small group supplement for 3 to 4 participants. Even 2 participants can be accommodated fairly easily here.

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

Single Room Supplement: $930 USD (or £710 GBP*) for the main trip and $270 USD (or £210 GBP*) for extension is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know. We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room.

Notes on Other Tour Costs: Exclusions:  

  • You will need to pay your international flight cost for getting from your local airport to Rio de Janeiro or Sao Paulo in Brazil. Internal flights are about $450 to $600 USD (£325 GBP to £430). Internal flights for extension are about $150 to $200 USD (£110 GBP to £145)

  • The tour fee does not include taxes/fees for entering or exiting the country, telephone calls, laundry, and other items of a personal nature.

  • Tips for birding guides and trip drivers are not included in the tour price. You can choose to pre-pay trips to meal service and housekeeping staff.
