Pantanal/Bonito/Iguazu/Amazon with Onno
I did the Pantanal/Bonito/Iguacu itinerary recently, and it was a blast! Incredible nature and lots of animals made this trip an absolute highlight. It was great to find a travel company that can advise and help you plan your trip to match your own needs.
I had an idea of what I wanted to do in Brazil (in only 10 days) and the Green Toad Bus created an itinerary for me that was perfect. I could visit the Pantanal, spend a couple of days in Bonito (don't forget to do the cave tour there! It's magical!) and visit Iguacu in the short time span that I had. The few things that could not be booked ahead, they gave me detailed advise on how to arrange it myself at the location, and it all worked out perfect.
When one of the optional activities had to be cancelled due to technical difficulties (from the operators side, not GTB) I got a full refund without a problem. It's really nice to have this close support from your travel company, including an emergency phone number in case something goes wrong. All in all it was a great trip for me, and I look forward in booking my next trip with GTB!
Onno actually did come back to Brazil to do a trip with us, he just completed our 2 night 3 day Amazon Ecological Expedition which departs from Manaus, and this is what he had to say about it:
Was again a very nice trip! All things went perfect, and It was all very well arranged and organised. Friendly people and a great guide! Unfortunatly didn't see as many animals as we hoped, but that probably has a lot to do with the season as well as with luck. Did see the dolphins, a cayman and a lot of insects. The night in the jungle was great fun, and very relaxed as there are hardly any mosquitos. Great weather too, just got hotter and hotter, just as it is supposed to be in the jungle right?
Thanks again GTB for the nice organisation from your part!
