Testimonial
A.G., Oxon United Kingdom 12-06-2009 - "This was a fabulous trip. The organisation in Venezuela was terrific. We were met at every point and the Ecuadorian guides and hotel staff were extremely helpful and thoughtful, but we were extremely impressed with the bird finding abilities of our guides, Oscar and Byron. I personally clocked up about 450 species."
