Because our explorations are very different than others - they are the real thing!
The many aspects of the Tucano experience make our cruises the best way to get to know the Amazon. But the simplest and most important answer to the question of Why Travel with Us is that, as true expeditions, our cruises are, above all else, authentic. We make great efforts to avoid the touristy make-believe that is very common in tours because we know that travel without meaning is empty and pointless. We also know that it doesn't have to be that way.
Everyone on our expedition cruises, both travelers and crew members, is part of the Tucano Team in exploration. And when venture into very remote areas we are well prepared with the knowledge, energy, passion, perspective, and the dedication necessary to have the best experience possible in this natural paradise. Every aspect of the cruise, from the boat design to the way we use our time, is carefully crafted to enable us to observe the astonishing Amazon environment. For these reasons we often observe flora and fauna that are missed by other travelers. Every trip is a one of a kind, once in a lifetime experience.
But in the end there is a simple answer to the important question "Why Travel with us?". It comes down one simple fact: that there is really only one way to travel on a vacation or in a life, and that is with authenticity, and that makes all the difference. (With apologies to The Road Not Taken, Robert Frost).
The Road Not Taken, By Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
