Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services on an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area.
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 Peru 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:
o Local ground transport is included. This includes a large transport van (and/or jeep as needed) for most of the trip.
o We also have a driver or guide pick you up at airport upon arrival, and transfers for internal flights are included, and we arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip.
Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of most of our customers an acre (and sometimes as many as 200 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 fun way to support bird conservation around the world. For our latest fiscal year, we saved an average of 80 acres for each booking.
Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven to eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than six participants.
Possible Additions to Basic Trip Pricing:
With Lelis Navarrete as Lead Guide: Add $200 US Dollars (or £160 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 Peruvian Sol climbed about 20% against the US Dollar from 2009 through 2015, gaining value by about 5% each year. This trend has stopped with the recent strength of the US Dollar, giving stability to the price of this trip. We have based 2018 pricing on an exchange rate of 3.24 Sol versus the US Dollar. Prices are fixed in US Dollars, and all lodges and operators are now giving us pricing in US Dollars. So the trip price is fixed in US Dollars. If the US Dollar weakens significantly against the Sol, we do reserve the right to make price adjustments. We have not charged a price increase in US Dollars for any Peru trip, after an invoice was given to a client, in the last decade.
Pricing in British Pounds: The GBP price indicated above is based on the April 9, 2018 exchange rate of 0.71 GBP per US Dollar. The trip price is fixed in US Dollars, and the final charges for the trip will be based upon the actual exchange rates we pay.
Bank Fees: Though we work to minimize bank charges with banking in Canada and in the United Kingdom, banks do often charge about 1.5% to for making the exchange.
Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include three meals per day during any full day of the trip. The arrival day does not include any meals, as most flights arrive after 7 PM. 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 meal time. 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 which 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 7 to 8 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size.
Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:
Single Room Supplement: $440 USD or £340 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.

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