    CUSTOM TOURS

     

    Custom tours are our specialty. Travel is a very personal, individualized experience. There are indeed many tour companies offering a variety of tours to Brazil, but very few companies have the willigness or expertise to set up trips to any and all corners of this vast country upon request. We feel that putting together a customized tour for our clients is the best way to turn a potentially good trip into a really great trip. For our custom tours we consider your input carefully, listening to your requests to determine the length, pace, intensity, difficulty, and variety of the trip. From nature photographers, to birder-botanists, to hardcore listers, and all points between, we have run successful tours throughout Brazil catering to a wide variety of interests.

     

    In addition to our customized private tours, we act as ground agents providing logistical support for birding tour companies running trips to Brazil. If you are a birding tour company looking for a reliable local operator based in Brazil for your tours, please contact us. 

     

    WHY NO SET DATE DEPARTURES?

    Joining a group for a birding tour is a great way to meet new people and to take a trip to a country if you can't afford a private trip, or can't convince your birding friends to go abroad with you. However, birding in a large group can be frustrating, especially in dense rainforest where the light is usually poor and the birds can be quite shy. At Birding Mato Grosso we prefer to focus on our custom tour offerings, as we feel that we can provide the highest quality of service and experience when working with smaller groups and tailor-made itineraries designed to meet the demands of each our of discerning clients.

     

    We may occasionally offer a set date itinerary to showcase an exciting new destination, to form a group for a infrequently run expedition, or if our clients specifically request help in filling out a group for a trip. In these cases, we will post the itinerary and dates here on our website.

     

    OUR FAVOURITE TOURS

    Choosing to take a customized tour is just the first step. Brazil is a massive country (it occupies just under half of South America), deserving of as many as a half dozen or more trips to do it justice. Below we list some of our favourite and most popular itineraries for custom tours. By no means is this a comprehensive list of where we can go, but it should serve as a very useful starting point in your choosing the right trip for you.
