Rich Lindie is an excellent guide with loads of patience and knowledge. He worked very hard to show us the birds and wildlife of Chile and would try and make sure everyone in the group saw all of the birds, when possible.
RL & PL, Taiwan 2018
Once again, Rich Lindie did a wonderful job showing us birds. His skills are really outstanding and added substantially to the trip. The local guide, Richard Foster, was also quite exceptional. He knew his birds, was very enthusiastic about showing them to everyone, and understood just how much cultural and social information to give us.…

Rich Lindie was skilled, patient and good-humoured. I also think he did a good job of balancing the different needs of the group. Rich also balanced the list I had shared with him of my target birds with the time we had available.
LH & MN, Indonesia 2018
Rich Lindie is a very skilled and enthusiastic guide, and has an outstanding talent for locating birds (during the day and in the dark!). He is also an enjoyable person to be on tour with, and is never short of conversation.
TP, Indonesia 2018
Rich Lindie was super; very funny, witty, with a good sense of humour, easygoing, knowledgeable and intellectual, and flexible. 10 stars out of 10!
BM, Malaysia & Borneo 2018
The ability of our guide, Rich Lindie, to locate the birds from the faintest movement or call under difficult and trying conditions was outstanding.
SP, China 2018
Rich Lindie did an outstanding job. He is an excellent birder/guide and did a fantastic job managing all our expectations… Overall a wonderful trip.
Our Rockjumper guide was Rich Lindie. The word “excellent” does not begin to cover the outstanding quality of his technical and interpersonal skills. Rich is the personification of enthusiasm for what he does. Extensively knowledgeable about both flora and fauna (in particular of course birds), he was at all times professional and friendly. In addition, Rich has a great sense of humor and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him and hearing about some of his amazing experiences in international travel, living, teaching and guiding. What an interesting and talented young man. We were very fortunate to have him as our guide.
I just have to write and tell you how much I enjoyed the N. India trip and how superb the leaders are… You know that, you only have world class guides. The last two days made the trip ‘beyond expectations’ with the birds we saw in Saital… Erik and Rich worked so well together and both are so funny, such a great combination. I especially have to thank Rich for taking pictures for me: I can immediately tell which ones he took: they make clear memories that are memorable…. With much gratitude to RBT for bringing birds and mammals into my life.
AB, Chile 2018
We had a rewarding Chilean birding and landscape adventure in December 2018 on a Rockjumper trip led by Rich Lindie, an excellent experienced guide.
AR, Indonesia – Sulawesi 2018
Rich Lindie was a fantastic guide and great fun as a leader. He was passionate and enthusiastic and did his level best to accommodate the various requirements of all the tour participants. He bust a gut to make sure we saw all the endemics, and I would thoroughly recommend him to potential customers and very…
DB, Chile 2018
Rich Lindie is an amazing guide. He seems to see and hear everything. The birds were even better than I imagined. I enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Chile. The group on this tour were great, all being experienced birders.

Rich Lindie was excellent and very helpful. His knowledge of the birds & wildlife of Brazil was phenomenal; in addition he told us much about other areas of the world. [W]e … had a great time.
LC & PD, Northern India 2017
We had a wonderful trip with Rich Lindie and Stephan Lorenz, and we would certainly be happy to travel with either of them again. They were both excellent with the birds, had a great sense of humour, and were helpful and patient when individuals required extra assistance. In addition to the birding, we enjoyed a…
EA & NA, Panama 2018
This was our first birding tour with a group and we both feel we started at the top. This tour was an excellent value for the price. Rockjumper did a first-class job with tour arrangements and we feel like we won the lottery getting Rich Lindie as our guide. Rich is a tremendous birding guide…
BB, Sri Lanka 2017
Rich Lindie and Stephan Lorenz were both excellent in both birding and handling of logistics, and were ever-resourceful if a problem arose. I would gladly bird again with either of them. We saw all of the endemic species and many of the regional endemics, most of them very well, and my list easily exceeded my…
PB & AB, Chile 2018
We found Rich Lindie to be knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to our needs and wishes. The tour was excellent and we achieved all that we hoped.
Both Wayne and Rich worked very hard to make this tour the success that it was. Rich was helpful in so many ways, and the two made an excellent team. Rich’s sense of humour was especially valuable.
I participated in the Jan-Feb [private] tour to the Philippines guided by Rich Lindie…. I have to say that Rich’s … indefatigable attempts to make our trip a success was exemplary in every way. His birding skills are definitely well above the norm in birding companies I am familiar with (including some very elite companies.) Rich is also enthusiastic, energetic, fun loving, patient and always in full control of his clients. In short, he is in the elite echelons of the guiding profession and should be considered a valuable asset to your organization. It is my intent to single out trips guided by him for my travel considerations.
Rich and David are very different personalities and from a client’s perspective, they were a dream team. Rich has unusual leadership ability (he was the main guide), he was unselfish, always put clients first and had patience even with the slowest – a good communicator and very good at getting people on the birds.
DB & RB, Panama 2018
Having Rich Lindie as the Rockjumper guide was a “known commodity”, as he was our guide for our Kenya & Tanzania trip in 2015. We have found Rich to be an excellent guide with undoubted birding skills, but also excellent people skills.
Recently back at home from our fantastic tour in Madagascar, I wanted to offer thanks to all for the excellent times we enjoyed. For us, the exuberant and superbly-skilled leadership of Rich Lindie was a delight and gave us such a greater measure of understanding to the natural wonders as well as a bit of the cultural aspects of the unique island. We had a great time, and we certainly saw a tremendous variety of the birds, mammals, and many other creatures as well as strange and wonderful plant life of the “Eighth Continent”. Thanks to Cuan and all the staff for assisting in the planning stages. Above all, however, thanks to Rich for giving his all to ensure a successful and thoroughly delightful tour…. From start to finish, a most memorable trip, and our highest recommendation to Rockjumper for the entire experience.
