A best seller 20 years ago!

 This was the best seller tour when Merida received many backpackers in the 90's and early 2000 before the Venezuela's collapse.  Since I enjoy giving my clients the opportunity to experience authentic and fun experiences I decided to include it again in the catalog under this "tours with departure dates" formula. 
January- May will be just perfect, almost guaranteeing the infamous Anaconda and seeing plenty of Wildlife when the dry season is on. 
One thing I know, you will be happy to join such experience just as many people did back in those days

Our clients always ask/ we answer: 

 
Is the helicopter tour worthy? 
A. Yes! It is a lifetime experience. 
 
Why is the helicopter tour so expensive? 
A.  Canaima National Park is a remote place. Venezuela is still going under some difficulties and fuel can be a big issue plus they have no competitors / not too many pilots available (they all fled overseas during our crisis) , etc, etc. 
 
Can you include it in the tour? 
A. Yes! 
 
I am traveling alone! I don’t want to pay for the full helicopter. What can I do?
