A great experience, primarily because of our guide, Edison Edy. He is Extremely knowledgable, not only about birds... which is the purpose of the trip after all, but also willing to share his expertise on plants and wildlife. Edy customizes your trip to fit you. This is not an outdoor adventure performed by rote. Rather your guide if it is Edy, expands the tour to accommodate your interests and abilities. And, at 12,000 ft. Elevation your abilities WILL be a factor. Edy will make sure that you see birds. You will also have a most enjoyable tour. Oh yes, he is fluent in English.
