Northern Peru 2016
We want to thank you and your colleagues for a very successful Northern Peru birding trip. You and Vidal helped us to see 79 new birds in northern Peru and push our South American bird list to almost 2,000. We really appreciate your patience and perseverance, and the helping hand negotiating some of the trickier trails.
It was a new experience to be on a tour with a cook. Ciro was not only a terrific cook but enjoyable company and always ready to lend a helping hand. We were impressed by his ability to produce delicious meals while in the field, and many times, under difficult conditions (for example, in the dark, with only his head lamp for light!) The driver, Juan, got us safely to all the birding destinations.
While not pleasant during the time, we will not forget our expedition to Plataforma for the Scarlet-banded Barbet. You all worked incredibly hard to get us safely back after a marathon return journey. It was all worth it, given excellent views of the barbet!
Thanks again for helping us see so many wonderful birds.
With best wishes,
Sharon and Barry
Northern Peru Birding Trip
"Both of my birding trips to Peru have been with Tanager Tours. I can throughly recommend them for running excellent birding trips with great attention to detail, and logistics that were second to none.
Miguel and David were excellent guides, who really knew the birds and the calls. The drivers Juve and Juan were very professional, and the excellent 3 course meals that Ciro magically produced in the middle of the jungle were top class.
The service provided overall was very professional, and I would have no hesitation in traveling with them on my third visit to Peru, which hopefully will be in the not too distant future.."

We went in summer 2015 with them to look for goodies and beauties at the coast, Andes and the Amazonian Forest.
Their guides are excellent, organisation is very good and they arrange field picnics at the most beautiful places.
In total we saw almost 600 species with Razor-Billed Curassow, Humboldt Penguin, Andean Condor, Pale-Winged Trumpeter, Diademed Plover, Blue-Headed Macaw, Crested Owl, Great Potoo, Lyre-Tailed Nightjar, Wire-Crested Thorntail, Bearded Mountaineer, Purus Jacamar, Long-Billed Woodcreeper, White-Bellied Cinclodes, Banded Antbird, Black-Spotted Bare-Eye, Black-Faced Antthrush and Red-and-White Antpitta, to mention just a few of the many highlights. Highly recommended. [email protected]
I have been on three birding trips to South America with Tanager Tours. On all three trips Miguel was our guide. Miguel is a superior guide in all respects. He has excellent acuity in recognizing the birds and their calls, and is especially attentive to ensure that all participants see the birds as well. I felt the trip was highly successful for me as a birder. Additionally I enjoyed the sense of camaraderie with the guides and camp tenders and the comforts provided by Tanager Tours. These trips were the best I have experienced in my many years of birding in South America.
"In August 2015 a friend and I carried out a 2 week tour of Central Peru with Miguel and his team. It was e very successful trip and Miguel proved to be a very knowledgeable guide and I would have no hesitation in recommending Tanager tours, Miguel and the rest of the team to anybody considering a trip to Peru.
