We did a 5- days tours visiting the cloud forest (Mindo, humming birds, tucanes, Antpittas…) and highlands (condors…) as well as Cotopaxi. We had some great days seeing lots of things (landscape, birds, etc) in this short time frame. We combined this tour with diving in Galapagos beforehand. Ecuador can be easily reached from Switzerland over Amsterdam. Regarding Covid we felt very secure - all people wear masks. We would definitely recommend this company.

Hi Barbara and Christopher, Thank you very much for your review. On behalf of ECUADOR BIRDS TOURS we want to thank you for choosing our services and that you have enjoyed the different birding Hotspots and Reserves in Antisana, Cotopaxi, Mindo, Tandayapa and other strategic sites. It was a pleasure to share many stories in our excursions and the climb to Cotopaxi Base Camp and glacier at 4,850 mts, plus observing the Andean Fox and the Ecuadorian Andes was for sure one of the best highlights. We hope you visit us in the future and enjoy our top lodge Hacienda Jimenita as well. Cheers, Daniel

I loved this trip; guides Ivan and Daniel were so knowledgeable about the birds and prepared to weather any situation or circumstance to get us where the birds were going to be at the time we needed to be there. They were so thoughtful about our needs for food or water or warmth, even lending us jackets when what we had brought along was not going to prove enough. My friend and I got upwards of 150 new life birds. Andean Cock of the Rock and ant pittas at their gathering places at 6 a.m. were a definite highlight. I can't say enough about how wonderful this trip was.

Excellent day trip visiting cloud forest in the Mindo region. My guide Ivan was very knowledgeable and friendly. The Refugio Paz de las Aves was incredible. One of the owners, (Angel) is able to call out of the forest difficult Antpitta and Wood Quail species to see. He also called in a Cloud Forest Pygmy Owl. Great views of all these birds.

We worked with Ecuador Bird Tours as our local outfitter for a valued repeat client's 34 day birding journey through Ecuador. This was a very serious birding client, with a specific target list and years of experience birding throughout the world. He had traveled with us throughout Costa Rica so we knew he had very high expectations. I worked directly with Diego to create a well planned itinerary to give our mutual client the best chance to see the birds he wanted to see. Diego did an amazing job with complicated logistics (made more difficult by Covid), and he was professional, efficient, and simply nice to work with. The first week of the client's time in Ecuador was challenged by rain, but the team at Ecuador Bird Tours made sure that our client still go to the locations he needed to go and still saw the birds he wanted to see. All of the plans were executed perfectly and the trip was a huge success. A lot of planning, organization, and re-confirming goes into a trip of this length but I had 100% confidence in Diego and his team, and he did an amazing job. In the end the client saw over 600 species of birds and got 360 life birds. He even saw the Harpy Eagle nesting, which was one of the most wanted birds of his life. Needless to say, he was thrilled. Thank you Ecuador Bird Tours. You are our "go to" in Ecuador. We look forward to working with you again!

Hi Joan, Thank you very much for your comments and feedback. It was a pleasure to plan and create your client's birding and wildlife trip and we are very happy that Carsten observed all his main target birds including the sword billed hummingbird, andean condor and the harpy eagle. We hope that our lodge Hacienda Jimenita was a great base for most of our day tour in the Andes and our other accommodation in the Amazon and Cloud Forest were outstanding as well. On behalf of Ecuador Birds Tours we look forward to have your clients with us again.
