Ventures runs longer international tours to a wide selection of international destinations. Because we are a small company, most are offered every other year and of course concentrate primarily on birds. A few combine birding with other nature activities and cultural sites, for example our Jordan tours have to include the ancient Nabotean city of Petra. Every year we usually offer at least one tour to each major region of the world, such as Europe, Asia, South and Central America and we also try to add new, safe and interesting destinations to our international program.

"Hummingbirds, Antpittas and Tanagers and much, much more"
August 2 - 12, 2013
Our 11-day hummingbird special tour takes us across the Andes from the west slope and Choco endemic hummingbirds such as Velvet-purple Coronet and Empress Brilliant to the east slope endemic hummingbirds such as Rufous-vented Whitetip and Black-throated Brilliant. We also hope to see one of the most endangered and range-restricted hummingbirds, including the Black-breasted Puffleg on Volcan Pichincha. With over 135 species of hummingbirds and feeders at most ecolodges, Ecuador is an ideal hummingbird-watching destination.
"The Best of the West Indies"
November 16-25, 2013
Trinidad and Tobago is THE place for a first time exposure to birding the New World Tropics. Members of almost all of the South American bird families are found here and unlike in many of their mainland haunts, the birds of T & T are easy to photograph and seem to have little fear of people. It is often said that a first timer to the islands will add thirty species to their life list before breakfast. With over 430 species, a warm West Indian climate, excellent food and rich island culture, these twin islands are a perfect nature destination.
