Pantanal Expedition Reviews

“This trip exceeded all my expectations in the number of species seen and the quality of those sightings. We were not rushed and were able to “be” in the moment and appreciate the wonders of that ecosystem. This trips rates as one of my best expeditions. The weather was perfect which was an additional plus.”

“We were grateful for your willingness to provide a tour of Sao Paulo for us – and thrilled with the quality of the guide. Fernando was a true professional. We would be delighted to travel with him again as well.”

“We loved Rio and the Iguassu Falls were spectacular. The guides, Marcello in Rio, and Carlos Barros at Falls were very fine. Carlos was exceptional in making the tour of the Falls about wildlife and botany as well. Accommodations were great both in Rio (Ipanema Inn) and at the Falls (Hotel das Cataratas). All good suggestions by Daniel. Many thanks for T-shirts, caps, book and map!”

“I never once in my life dreamed of going to Ethiopia. A cancelled trip and a timely email changed that at the last minute, and it turned out to be one of the best trips of my life. New Paths Expeditions showed us the many faces of this country: the vibrant city of Addis Ababa, the ancient relics of Axum, the incredible carved churches of Lalibela, the Blue Nile Falls and Lake Tana, the Gelada baboons, and the colorful tribes of the south, with their lip and ear plates. The scenery was beautiful, the food was delicious, and even I, a non-birder, enjoyed the beautiful and unique birds we spotted every day. We did not just visit the carved churches; we observed the church ceremonies for the Feast Day of St. Mary, complete with drums, colorful umbrellas, and ululating parishioners. We did not drive past a group of Gelada Baboons; we sat in their midst. We had experts in architecture and painting to instruct us and we talked to and learned from the ordinary Ethiopians every day. We shopped in local markets, even tracking down a tiny shop that sold the embroidered trim we had all been coveting. In this fascinating and diverse country, New Paths Expeditions brought us to real people and allowed us to make connections that we will never forget.”

“This Ethiopian trip includes all important areas and cultures, sights of historical significance with opportunities which defy description. The archeological sites are remarkable and not in your Art History class. Reading Ethiopia’s history through today is remarkable and not covered in your history classes. The guide was excellent. The people are wonderful, beautiful, happy to see tourists. Having looked at some other options for travel in Ethiopia, Jorge’s program includes every place of interest with nice accommodations and a minimum of unimproved road travel making good use of our sightseeing time. What an education and escape!”

“The NPE Ethiopian expedition was one of the best trips we have taken. Ethiopia is so diverse in its regions and we pretty much covered all of them with NPE. The most exciting part of the trip is that each and every day was a new experience, and we were anxious to see what the next days would bring. The countryside changed the people and the architectural sites. Traveling over land, we were able to see a lot of the land. The accommodations were better than we expected! And of course, the southern trip to see various tribes was outstanding. At first, we were skeptical about making the journey, but now we classify it as one of our best experiences!”

“Ethiopia is truly an enchanted country with warm friendly people. The diversity of cultures is amazing. New Paths Expeditions did a wonderful job of making sure our experiences were the best possible. From the north of the country to the southern part of the country the trip is awe inspiring. The best!”

“We’ve been on four expeditions with NPE and are looking forward to our fifth –Wild Mongolia! NPE goes above and beyond to make sure your expedition exceeds your expectations. We love the small groups, unique accommodations and surprise features. We get to see things and do things not usually included in other tours. Outstanding local guides and the best expedition leaders in the business!”

Past Guest Comments

“This trip is a true highlight of my travel experiences. The time spent at the Island of Tierra del Fuego was magical. The vistas unexpected and beautiful. Visiting a working sheep ranch, having lunch with the family and birdwatching were unforgettable. After embarking on the M/V Australis, it was one visual wonder after another; disembarking each day for shore excursions was made so easy by the helpful and knowledgeable sta. Of course, one of the highlights was landing at Cape Horn!

Time spent at Torres del Paine was unforgettable. The vistas from our rooms, the food, excursions, horseback riding and, of course, the excellent guides.

None of this trip would have been as magical without Jorge as our expedition leader. His experience and expertise are unmatched in the travel world. He is always on top of any changes and the needs of each of his travelers.”

“This was our fourth visit to Patagonia, and we decided to go again because of Jorge. Boy, I am glad we did! Non of our previous experiences match at any level the one we enjoyed with New Paths Expeditions. The amount of content, the quality of guides and accommodations, the food, the fun. Of course, the destination is amazing, and I agree with Jorge, it is the most beautiful place on earth.”
