Inclusions:

  • 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. 

  • 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 the 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 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 prices mentioned above are for the following tour group prices:

      14 days and 13 nights: the price is based upon a group size of 7 or 8 participants.

      All Extensions: the price is based upon a group size of 5 to 7 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 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: (1) Our 2024 (and late 2023) price estimates are mostly based on US Dollars; so, our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of .79 GBP (British Pound) per US Dollar (the exchange rate on May 8, 2023). (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. Please contact us anytime with questions here.   

  • 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% 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 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 7 or 8 participants for the main tour, and pricing is based on this group size.  

      All Extensions: the price is based upon a group size of 5 to 7 participants.

 

Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:

Single Room Supplement: $480 USD or £380 GBP* 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.

 

  • Extension 1: Hummingbird Extension: $100 USD or £80 GBP*

  • Extension 2 (best as Pre-Trip): Penguin Extension: $160 USD or £130 GBP*
