Here's what people are saying about our birding adventures...
“This was a fabulous program. The scenery was magnificent, the food and accommodations were outstanding, and the birding was excellent. We had great up-close views of Andean Condors, lots of beautiful hummingbirds and tanagers, many different flycatchers, close encounters with seven different species of elusive antpittas, and many other good looks at over 250 species of birds. I don’t see how it could be improved. Highly recommended.”
“Even if you are a first time bird watcher, you will enjoy this program. Great instructors, great meals, and awesome birding opportunities make this program a great value.”

Highlights include the brilliantly-colored Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, as well as antpittas, unique hummingbirds and tanagers.
