Pantanal, Chapada & Emas Natonal Park Tour 11D/10N November 2016

Nancy W. from Bertem - Belgium

Through circumstances our original tour operator couldn't do the trip to the Pantanal anymore. When we wrote to Igor from Gasparetour to book a new tour, he had only a week to organize it. And he did an amazing job. Our guide Alex was the best. Every question you asked, he could answer. His English was excellent and he did his best to find every animal we wanted to see. Even if this meant that our night drives or boat tour took a little bit longer. We saw 4 jaguars, several giant otters, two giant anteaters, a tapir and a lot more. Our driver was also a guide, so we actually had two guides. Even if he couldn't speak English, he was very capable and also spotted animals very well. The chosen accommodations were excellent and in good locations and the food great. Our time in the Pantanal was an unforgettable experience. I would recommend Gasparetour to everyone. Igor goes out of his way to make his clients happy. Even if this means that he has to change something at the last minute to make it happen

Pantanal Full Experience Tour 8D/7N October 2016

Natasha Burns from Thonon-les-Bains - France

I spent 8 days in Pantanal with Gasparetour and I had unforgettable experience. Pantanal is an amazing place for wildlife enthusiasts and simply a paradise for birdwatchers. The experience was made even more enjoyable due to impeccable organization of the tour by Igor, who did a fantastic job organizing it on a short notice, and also due to enthusiasm, knowledge and experience of the tour guide Alex, who was a great company. Well done for doing such a professional job and providing such a high-quality service.

Pantanal Tour 4D/3N October 2016

Julia Dennis from Porto Alegre - Brazil

Spending time in the Pantanal, whether you only have a day or can stay a week, is an incredible experience. The flora, fauna, and wildlife are varied, unique, and exquisite. Gasparetour has very knowledgeable and personable guides who make the trip very enjoyable. There are many activities and great places to stay throughout the tour. Highly recommend this trip!

Pantanal and Chapada dos Guimarães Full day Tour October 2016

Camila Nunes from Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

Estive em Cuiabá durante uma semana e meses antes entrei em contato com a Gasparetour (Igor), que sempre foi muito solícito e atencioso respondendo com riqueza de detalhes sobre os passeios. A ida à Chapada dos Guimarães superou as minhas expectativas, pois a empresa é pontual, os carros são novos e o guia trouxe muitas informações interessantes. No Pantanal não foi diferente, pude viver momentos maravilhosos e de fato ter contato com tudo que havia na propaganda da empresa. O preço é super justo! Não só recomendo como pretendo voltar e refazer os passeios com mais calma!

Combined Tour 5D/4N Pantanal, Chapada and Nobres September 2016

Carolin & Thomas​ from Frankfurt - Germany

Wir haben eine 5 Tage/4 Nächte-Tour Pantanal, Chapada & Nobres gebucht.
Wir waren eine tolle Gruppe von 4 Personen. Unser Guide Alex war einfach genial. Er war sehr aufmerksam, konnte uns sämtliche Fragen beantworten und hat versucht, uns jeden Wunsch zu ermöglichen. Dadurch haben wir sehr viel erlebt und auf unserer Tour auch sehr viele Tiere gesehen. Alex ist mit uns zweimal extra früh aufgestanden, damit wir den Sonnenaufgang beobachten können und die Chance haben, nachtaktive Tiere zu sehen. Er hat sich für uns so richtig ins Zeug gelegt :) Leider haben wir auf einer anderen Tour in Brasilien miterlebt, dass die Guides die Tiere nur für die Touristen eingefangen oder sie vom Baum geschüttelt haben. Das wäre uns bei Alex nie passiert. Er hat immer darauf geachtet, dass die Tiere nicht von uns gestört werden. Man hat gemerkt, dass er sehr naturverbunden ist, was uns sehr wichtig war. Wir waren sehr froh, dass wir so einen tollen Guide hatten!
Die Unterkünfte waren sehr schön, komfortabel und klimatisiert. Das Essen war landestypisch, lecker und es war für jeden etwas dabei. 
Der E-Mail Kontakt im Vorfeld mit Igor lief einwandfrei ab. Er hat uns sofort auf unsere Rückfragen geantwortet.
Wir haben uns bei Gasparetour sehr wohl gefühlt und können diese Tour jedem empfehlen, der das Pantanal besuchen möchte.
Vielen Dank an Igor, Alex und natürlich auch an unseren Fahrer (dessen Namen wir mal wieder vergessen haben ;) )!!!

Pantanal Full Experience Tour 8D/7N August 2016

Matthew Dryden from Andover - UK 

I did the 8 day Pantanal eco trip at the end of Aug because I love wildlife and remote places. Igor and his team did a fantastic job all the way through from the booking to the meeting and the trip itself with guides Alex and Jose. They were great company and really knowledgeable. We saw jaguar every day in the deep Pantanal and so much other wildlife and about 150 species of birds. I really recommend it. Food was good. Places to stay basic and very comfortable. We had some heavy rain so jackets essential but also hot sun! Great wildlife photography opportunities.

Combined Tour 6D/5N Pantanal, Chapada and Nobres Tour August 2016

Sebastian and Maria from Amsterdan - Holland 

via google kwam ik bij Gasparetour terecht. Last-minute bij Igor via Whats app een Pantanal tour geboekt. deze snelle service was geweldig. Daarna enorm genoten van de 5 daagse Pantanal trip. Alex de gids in de Pantanal was super, en met de kleine groep (5 volwassenen en 2 kinderen) kregen we alle aandacht. Zoveel vogels, kaaimannen, capibara en andere dieren gezien. En genoten van de gastvrijheid in de lodge. Echt een aanrader!

Combined Tour 6D/5N Pantanal and Chapada Tour August 2016

Maud Debs from Paris - France 

We had a really good time in the Pantanal. Igor is an amazing guide who is really passionate about nature and animal. He also adapted the tour our needs which not commun when you book a tour. All my family and I loved all the activities we did in the 5D/4N. I really recommend to book with Igor!

Pantanal Full Experience Tour 7D/6N July 2016

Nadja Hammani from Hamburg - Germany 

We stayed 6 nights in the Pantanal, inkluding Nobres. Everthing worked perfectly fine. To be onest, I was a little bit nervous about booking a tour in Brasil via Internet/email contact, but the good recommendations regarding Gasparetour calmed me down. And: the tour was absolutly perfect!!! Although our flight time and number changed and we hadn't got the chance to inform anyone about that, Igor was still waiting at the airport in Cuiaba to pick us up.
The Pantanal itself was spectacular. Although we booked as part of a group, it ended up being a private tour as no one else had booked at that time. We spent many hours driving along the Transpantaneira, stopping to view hundreds of different birds and caimans along the Highway. Alex, our guide, knows the area like the back of his hand. We couldn't have found any better guide - his knowledge of flora and fauna is simply extraordinary, we loved his sense of humour, and he always made it in time for mealtimes :-). We took about 2.000 Pictures, not only of our Jaguar spotting (two times a mother with cups, hunting!!!) but also from all the other wildlife, including giant antbear, monkeys, armadillo and iguana.
Thank you so much, Alex and Igor, for all the expierences and fun you shared with us. We can absolutely recommend Gasparetour!!!

Combined Tour 4D/3N Pantanal and Chapada Tour July 2016

Tom O'Reilly from Auckland - New Zealand

I went on the 4 day 3 night Pantanal Tour and a day tour to Chapada National Park. with Gasparetour. It was one of the most enjoyable tours I have been on. This was due in large part to the superb hosting by Igor.
Igor was great, he was attentive, caring, helpful. He went out of his way to ensure success.
The organization was excellent as were the facilities provided. A great tour...thank you Igor

Combined Tour 3D/2N Pantanal and Chapada Tour July 2016

Vibeke Skauerud from Luanda - Angola

We participated in a day-visit to Chapada dos Guimarães and a 3 day / 2 night Pantanal tour in July and had a wonderful time! 
Pantanal is beautiful and we truly enjoyed all the activities - gliding silently upstreams in a canoe at dawn, fishing pirana, horseback riding amongst deer and colorful birds - and the breathtaking sunsets. 
Ours was a very mixed group spanning from 49 to 81 years of age, and from three different continents. Some only spoke Portuguese, and some only English... But with Igor personally taking care of us, that was no problem at all! Everything went really smooth and Igor made sure that alternative solutions were found when some activities turned out to be too strenuous for the older members of our group. We were even treated to live entertainment at night, singing along to traditional songs from the Pantanal - great fun! 
Thanks to Igor and Gasparetour, Pantanal became one of the highlights of our visit to Brazil! Will be back to find the jaguar :-)

Pantanal Tour 4D/3N July 2016

Victoria Sorooker from Tel Aviv - Israel

The trip was to Pantanal. I and my teenager daughter spent 4 days in the lodge.
The experience started already on the way as we entered trans Pantanal road. Sitting on top of safari car enabled to observe wildlife along the way.
In the lodge the schedule was intensive starting at 0530 almost till 2200. It included walking tours, car safari and boat trips. But still enabled long siesta. The trips enabled to observe animals' and birds' behavior as well as taking pictures. All was accompanied by an excellent professional explanations. We saw many beautiful birds and unique mammals. It is absolutely necessary to take with you camera preferably with tele zoom lens , walking shoes, sun screen, insect repellent and something warm for night safari trips.

Combined Tour 4D/3N Pantanal and Chapada Tour June 2016

Christopher M. Hobley  from London - England

My husband and I went on this tour with our two kids (5 and 6). Igor and his wife Glauce could not be more accommodating. We wentr on the three day/2 night tour in the Pantanal and went on boat trips, pony trekking, walking through the Pantanal, horse riding and piranha fishing to name but a few things. The accommodation was clean with air con (we had a large family room), the food varied and delicious (as a vegetarian, there was plenty of choice) and the company excellent. Igor was a walking encyclopaedia and never tired of our questions. We also did a day trip to Chapada from Cuiaba where Glauce was our tour guide and again very knowledgeable about the area and extremely accommodating. I would highly recommend this tour company as they made us feel as if we were part of the family - even helping us out with translation at our hotel in Cuiaba.

Combined Tour 5D/4N Pantanal, Chapada and Nobres May 2016

Harrison Carter from Sao Paulo - Brazil

I am an American living in Sao Paulo for a work rotation. I had some vacation coming up that my boss was reluctant to approve. Pantanal was definitely on my to do list while living in Brazil, and I was lucky to find Gasparetour at the last minute. I hitched my wagon to a tour that consisted of me and 1 Brazilian during the slow season (Late May).
Igor kept us moving at a manageable but good pace. We got to see a lot of places most Brazilians have never even heard of. I would definitely recommend the combined tour with Nobres. We did Nobres, Pantanal, and Chapada do Guimaraes. If you get the chance, definitely reach out to Igor and let him know the kind of trip you want. He was well organized and efficient with good English. what else could you ask for?

Combined Tour 5D/4N Pantanal, Chapada and Nobres May 2016

Felipe Lungov from São Paulo - Brazil

Everything was at its best, I really can't think of anything to criticize. I just wish I could have stayed longer. Both Igor and José were very helpful, I had nothing to worry about. Make sure you don't miss Chapada dos Guimarães.

Pantanal Tour 3D/2N  April 2016  The Pantanal tour report to the British Website CAPX

Rachel Cunliffe from London - England    

                         

If you have to choose between visiting the Amazon or the Pantanal, choose the Pantanal. We were there off-season, when it is harder to see animals, but just on the drive to the lodge we saw capybaras, caymans, an iguana, and hundreds of beautiful birds. Later we were lucky enough to spot otters, bats, foxes, macaws, and many other creatures. Igor Gaspareto is an incredible guide, and is able to spot animals out of nowhere. He knows everything about the landscape and the wildlife, and we would have missed so much without him. The tour itself (3 days, 2 nights) was perfectly organised, from our pick-up in Cuiaba to the Rio Claro lodge on the Transpantaneira highway (which serves great food, and blissfully has air-condinitoned rooms) , including boat trips, night safari, and horse riding through the flood planes. We were looked after with extreme care and consideration, and there was something to see at every point. A good guide is essential for exploring this unique and wondrous ecosystem, which is unlike anywhere else in the world. Definitely organise a tour in advance, to avoid being ripped off by big companies in Cuiaba. I would recommend Igor and his guides at Gasparetour to anyone wanting to see something of the incredible Brazilian wildlife.

Combined Tour 5D/4N Pantanal, Chapada and Nobres March 2016

Lora Hargreaves from Vancouver - Canada

 

We organized this tour from Vancouver, Canada. Igor was excellent at answering my questions. Our driving and guide were great, the activities and accommodations were as promised. Riding horses through caiman and pirahna waters was a highlight,, as was seeing the many different types of birds, the Crocodiles, iguanas, catching a piranha, seeing many many Capybaras. We travelled with two children, ages 10 and 12. Trip was excellent for them too.

Chapada and Nobres Full Day Tour February 2016

Vivian Del Buono from São Paulo - Brazil

 

Conheci a agência através do TripAdvisor. Concordo com tudo de positivo que foi falado. O Igor, proprietário, foi muito gentil e paciente, respondeu com eficiência, precisão e rapidez os vários e-mails que enviei enquanto escolhia os passeios que ia fazer. A mesma rapidez em responder os e-mails aconteceu depois de escolher e fechar os passeios a Nobres e Chapada dos Guimarães. Muita gentileza e profissionalismo, pois os e-mails são claros e precisos. Os vouchers foram enviados imediatamente após a confirmação do pagamento. Em cada um dos passeios, o guia de turismo que nos acompanhou eram extremamente competentes e conhecedores da região ( valeu Vitorio, obrigada José!). Recomendo a Gasparetour!

Michele Petersen from Porto Alegre - Brazil

 

Fui ao Pantanal e à Chapada dos Guimarães com a Gasparetour e fiquei super satisfeita. O bom atendimento do Sr. Igor começa já no planejamento do passeio, super atencioso, dá todas as dicas e informações necessárias para o máximo aproveitamento das atrações. Os guias são especializados e experientes, possuem bastante conhecimento sobre os locais visitados e os transmitem para os turistas. Indico como a melhor opção em turismo Mato Grosso!

Pantanal Tour 5D/4N February 2016

Hui Ye Zheng from Los Angeles - USA

 

I did the 5 day / 4 night tour with Igor as my guide. Overall, the tour was organized seamlessly. 
From the beginning with the tour booking, I was impressed by Igor's responsiveness and thoroughness in answering my e-mail inquiries. The airport pick-up and drop-off were also smooth.
Even though I visited during the wet season (as I planned to partake in Rio's Carnival post-Pantanal tour), I still had the opportunity to view a multitude of wildlife in its natural habitat. I saw caimans, jabiru storks, capybaras, crab-eating foxes, etc. I also lucked out and saw two baby ocelots. Compared with the dry season, the pros of the wet season are that it is less hot and less crowded (my group tour involved one other solo traveler, and plus Igor, we had the entire lodge to ourselves). The cons are that you need to bring luck with the weather (although the rain tends to not last more than a few hours, and on my tour, 4 of my 5 days were sunny all day) and there can be some mosquitos (so repellent is a good idea).
In terms of tour guides, Igor is a consummate professional. He is very dependable, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about the Pantanal and its wildlife. I also had the chance to have Jose (another tour guide who works with Igor) conduct my first wildlife spotting. Jose is very sweet and experienced (15+ years). Although his English vocabulary is not as comprehensive as Igor's, it is sufficient, and he also helped me improve my Portuguese. In summary, both Igor and Jose are excellent tour guides, and if you are nature lover, I would highly recommend the Gasparetour Pantanal tours.
