I highly recommend this as a wonderful way to start the day - a virtual tour great for novice to seasoned bird watchers. The hosts were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and happy to answer any and all questions. As they should, the birds stole the show - so many varieties! I plan to join again and to add Panama to my must-visit list once in- person travel returns to normal.

I have done several remote experiences during 2020 and this was one of the best. I was excited for this (hey I was willing to get up at 6:00 am) and it surpassed my expectations. The team cared so much about what they were doing and went above and beyond in sharing their love of birding and sharing Panamanian wildlife.

My partner and I went out with the boys early morning, absolutely stunning. The guys were more than willing to tailor the tour for specific requests which was awesome!! The boat ride was really impressive, more so seeing the sustainability of what is happening in the Canal and the minimal effect on the ecosystem. Our visit to Monkey island was dominated by Tamarins the slightly more aggressive Capuchins. The Howlers were a bit more stand off-ish but very vocal!! Our guides were really knowledgeable and the drive through of the old American Gamboa district was cool. Is really recommend this tour company, they were well versed in their tour and couldn’t be more helpful!! We’ll be back!!

Just like being in the field yourself, even when the birding was quiet there was always the anticipation that something could suddenly appear in view. The guides worked hard to provide a thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours of birding, and even finished off with showing us a sloth. Wonderful experience...!

I'm new to bird watching community and it was truly a life changing experience for me as I saw different kinds of birds, two mammals and a reptile. I really loved to see Green Iguana and also the Red Crowned Woodpecker. Also, the team is truly incredible and they give such a terrific explanation, I really loved it. PS- The cause behind it is nobel and phenomenal, I wish you guys more power and positivity 🧡
