He can distinguish each bird species and give its name in different national languages. Unfortunately, however, this is the only positive point we can mention. The Pantanal Tour is completely overpriced. We booked the 3 day tour for 3690 rias per person. We want to start with the car. The car is a VW Passat! Since the roads in the Pantanal are off-road roads, the ride is very unpleasant. All the other vehicles that came to meet us were jeeps. In our opinion, it is an imposition to offer a tour, which is carried out with a Vw Passat, especially for this price. Second, the lodge (Rio Claro) is completely run down. The shower is teeming with ants and other insects. In addition, the staff does not speak English. The food, however, is delicious. Last to the excursions. On the first day you drive the VW Passat through the Pantanal in the morning and see many bird species. In the afternoon you go on a boat tour which I think is the best excursion. The night tour is a disaster, you don't see anything! It does not correspond in the smallest way to the description regarding Rizardo's website. On the second day you go on a "hike" that lasts 1.5h. The walk is boring because there are no animals to see and the trail is not marked by scenic beauty. Again, we have to mention that it does not correspond to the description described on the website. Then you return to the dilapidated lodge where you have to gammble around for 6h until the 2nd boat tour is done, which lasts only 2h and is the same as on the first day. If it rains, the boat tour will not be carried out! That's the way it is with excursions. Finally, we would like to advise against this tour. We felt that Rizardo is just out for the money (no sooner did we get into his car did he want to have the money). We have already done many tours and this was the most boring and deceived tour with distance.
Astonishing how much Rizardo knows about the beautiful nature in the Pantanal. We really liked the tours! He is a guide with a passion for his job. more »
