This was my first Rockjumper experience and it was excellent. Dušan Brinkhuizen was amazing at finding birds.

This was an excellent tour. The itinerary was really good, the guides – both main and local – were all very good. I would have no hesitation being on another trip with Dušan Brinkhuizen, as he is an outstanding guide. It was all very well organised. Many thanks to all involved in organising the trip.

Special thanks to Dušan Brinkhuizen for his care in helping me to locate birds on my camcorder.
CB, Cuba 2018
Honestly, this was a tremendous experience! The tour was extremely well organised and balanced, the guide, Dušan Brinkhuizen, was excellent and very professional, and the local guides also impressed me. I look forward to travelling with Rockjumper again.
SH & PB, Ecuador and Galapagos 2018
We had a great time, both Dušan Brinkhuizen (all 4 trips) and Andrés Trujillo (Galapagos) were excellent. We were very happy with the accommodation, transport and the variety of wildlife that we saw.
We really enjoyed the tour and being with Dušan again, as we were in Argentina with him in July of this past year. He was one of the good reasons for taking this tour. He is a great guide and fun to be with.
The tour was great. It exceeded our expectations. We got more than our money’s worth. Part of that was Dusan making everyone feel welcome. He was a great guide and worked really hard at locating Cuban Endemics for us. We also saw, surprisingly, many other North American Warblers. He was very friendly and didn’t mind being asked over and over, “which bird is that,” even though he had named the bird many times before. Talk about patience!

[To Dušan Brinkhuizen] Truly, it was the very best birding trip I have ever been on, including several other Rockjumper trips which have all been great. As I think back on it, I can only marvel at your amazing ability to hear and identify the “chips” and “tsits” of birds calling or singing from deep…
We had a great time birding with you. Thanks for working so hard making sure we saw all the target endemic and near-endemic birds. We very much enjoyed being around you because you have an upbeat and positive demeanour. Thanks for pointing out so many wintering warblers that we, on the west coast of US, do not get to see. Will always remember the Tody and the “G” Hawk.
KM, Dominican Republic 2018
This tour may have been short, but it was not easy, so thank goodness our guide, Dušan Brinkhuizen, was so much fun to be with and so knowledgeable.
BS, Guatemala 2017
Dušan is an exceptional guide in all respects. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, is courteous and diplomatic with the clients, and excellent with the local people. I could not ask for anything more. Thank you very much for providing this tour. For me, it was a success in every way. I will…
MY, Papua New Guinea 2018
Dušan Brinkhuizen was very personable, great birder, keen on helping us all see the species.
CM, Ecuador 2018
The tour was very good and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Dušan Brinkhuizen is an excellent guide, a superb birder whose enthusiasm is infectious. We had members of our group with differing levels of birding skills, fitness and expectations. Dušan showed a high level of professionalism and went out of his way to meet everyone’s expectations…
TN, Ecuador – Galapagos 2018
I really enjoyed this trip, it’s probably the best one I’ve been on! I loved the knowledge and personalities of both our guides, Andrés Trujillo & Dušan Brinkhuizen, as well as the naturalist guides and the boat crews.
SF, Ecuador – Galapagos 2018
Our guides, Dušan Brinkhuizen and Andrés Trujillo, are excellent in their jobs. They are very helpful and kind. All our tour members were very happy with them.
NL & CL, Cuba
Dušan was an extraordinary guide. His birding skills, humanity, and concern for all of us was beyond reproach.
GW – Papua New Guinea 2019
This has been an incredible tour with Stephan Lorenz and Dušan Brinkhuizen as amazing guides. Experts in their knowledge of the New Guinea birds and wonderful companions who looked after the needs of all the participants. We all worked as a team under their guidance and saw many challenging as well as beautiful birds.
AB, Ecuador 2018
Dušan Brinkhuizen is a fantastic guide! He is incredibly talented as a birder but equally important, he is very patient and he managed our group perfectly. We had a great time together based on his leadership. He is an asset to Rockjumper.
Dušan was great. He took charge of the group with enthusiasm. His birding skills are excellent. The office staff were super in responding to emails and answering questions. I have told my birding friends to consider Dušan and Rockjumper when they schedule their next trip.
Dušan is an excellent field ornithologist with an encyclopaedic knowledge of bird song, taxonomy, and field identification marks. Ornithology is Dušan’s passion. He is also excellent with the clients – friendly, courteous, patient, and anxious that everyone sees all the birds and enjoys the tour. It was a great tour!
JM, Ecuador 2018
I was particularly impressed by Dušan Brinkhuizen. His knowledge of Ecuadorian birds, both visual and auditory, was amazing. He showed an unflagging energy and was sensitive to the myriad of special interests of our participants.
