Birds of Peru Tours

Tanager Tours is a leading tour operator for birding tours in Peru and other South American destinations. The company’s name alludes to the magnificent colours and diversity of South American tanagers and symbolises the richness and variety of their tours.  Active in Peru since 1999, Tanager Tours’ trademark is a high degree of reliability against relatively low prices. They offer tailor-made tours as well as standard routes.

Tanager Tours has a staff of professionals who love the birds of Peru and nature in general. This passion makes them explore and look for new routes to the delight of their customers. Tanager Tours have a small but stable staff working exclusively for their company which makes their services of high quality. All the birding trips and tours have been well designed, thinking about the various bird specialties by area, while their staff are continuously exploring new remote areas, finding new birding spots and giving you a true birding experience.

Tanager Tours are realistic in what is possible when birding – although they also do their utmost to show customers as much as possible of Peru’s splendour and do all they can to answer the clients’ wishes for endemic or difficult to find species, they do not create unrealistic hope or “build castles of air”. Their approach is to make a realistic plan, based through correspondence, to attain customers targets. Tanager Tours’ guiding principle is that the tours on offer should surpass your expectations, not to evoke unrealistic expectations that they cannot deliver on.

After all, birds remain birds, and that is exactly their attraction. The philosophy is that their customers will find Tanger Tours because they offer quality tours that result in satisfied clients.  If your passion is culture, wildlife and birding at the same time, contact Tanager Tours with your timeframe, targets and budget and they will design an itinerary suited to your needs.

Tanager tours conservation

Tanager tours is active in conservation programs helping to protect the local environment. They started with a small piece of land in the tropical rainforest, bought just 30 hectares with their own resource and just couple friends Miguel Lezama and Alex Durand helping. This land will be part of future biological station and in the close future, supported by a tourism program, you will be able to visit this amazing place.

Part of their incomes directly involves this project. Unfortunately logger’s have more resource than their conservation project, but they are fighting for better future in the area. Tanager tours hope to expand this land because illegal mining and logging are threatening this invaluable resource. If you apply for one of Tanager Tour programs, you will be helping this initiative, forest and wildlife, giving it an extra opportunity to survive.
