Highlights were Iguassu Falls, particularly the Argentinian side, the lodge in the Pantanal and the bird sanctuary at Iguassu. But there were 18 on the trip which was far too many for any 'small group' tour and hopeless for a wildlife tour - we were too noisy and by the time the people further back got to the place where the wildlife or point of interest had been, it had gone, or the guide was out of sight and we didn't now what we were looking at. It also caused other problems - some of the hotels didn't have rooms for us, we often got middle seats in boats or on jeeps so couldn't see anything - and I suspect the numbers affected the internal flights ie we were always on awful connections (really tight, or very long waits, and often at inconvenient times of the day). Explore actually dropped the price at the last moment to attract more people, so it wasn't an accident that there were 18 of us. It also meant we were on a wide variety of international flights so the first half day tour just didn't happen because not everyone had arrived, and it was moved to the 2nd day so we lost our free day without warning (we had been planning to book another full day activity - just as well we hadn't already paid!). In the Pantanal the 'Jaguar Express' day trip where there is an almost guaranteed chance to see jaguars was not booked by Explore, and couldn't be booked for such a big group anyway, Diego was always helpful and patient and worked very hard to overcome the difficulties posed by the organisation of the tour and the numbers. Don't. Go to Brazil with a tour operator who genuinely offers the small group experience and isn't just aiming for bottoms on seats.

We’re sorry to read that you were disappointed with the group size on this trip, and that you felt it created issues throughout the itinerary. We do list the group size as 12-18, but we’ll take your comments on board during our annual review of the Pure Brazil departure.

The lodges in the Amazon were amazing. Iguazu falls were fantastic, we visited both sides, the Argentinian and Brazil both different views, both worth doing. There were lots of birds and butterflies but not many animals. Great holiday, it went too quickly, lots of internal flights though, but that is the only way to do so much

Not really that happy with response and offer on return from trip as Amazon experience was very poor! As long term customers will now be considering other agents

1. Pantenal - fabulous, really interesting and unspoilt so a great way to see wildlife with few tourists around.
2. Iguaçu falls - amazing! It speaks for itself! But it was great to be able to see both the Brazilian and Argentinian side, wildlife here was also very good.
