Overview

Marvelous Spatuletail, Royal Sunangel, Koepcke’s Hermit, Gould's Jewelfront – and that’s just a few of the mind-blowing, highly sought-after hummingbird species we’ll be looking for on this humminbird focused tour of northern Peru. From our base in Tarapoto, we search for the rare Koepke's Hermit before moving slowly northwards, taking in the hummingbird rich Waqanki and Moyobamba area before culminating in the stunning forests of Abra Patricia.

Tour Pace & Walking
Our Family tours are dedicated to the enjoyment and appreciation of specific bird families. Whilst we will certainly not ignore other bird families and species, we will not be going out of our way to find them. These tours are slower paced, allowing for as much time as appropriate to be spent in hides, feeders or similar such sites. There are rarely early starts or late finishes to the day. These tours are suitable for all birding interests and experience levels, avid photographers and in some cases can accommodate those with mobility or health challenges.
Accommodation
comfortable
Ease of Birding
moderate with some tough species
Photographic Opportunities
good to very good

Rob Williams is right up there among the very best tour leaders. His vast experience from lots of research and conservation projects and intimate knowledge of the country add lots of value compared to a tour leader who is "just" a good organiser, birder and guide. He is also great company, with a sublime sense of humour.

The tour was fantastic. Forrest Rowland, did a terrific job spotting birds, giving us clear directions to actually sight the birds and displayed plenty of patience in the process.

This was an excellent tour! We saw so many great birds, and had many delicious meals from pizza to ceviche. The time spent birding and touring Kuelap was a highlight. To top everything off, Forrest Rowland is an awesome leader. In addition to hearing, seeing and getting everyone on the birds, he told wonderful stories and kept everyone laughing. All in all, we had a terrific time.

The tour met all of my expectations. Rob Williams is an excellent tour guide - knowledgeable, manages logistics well, interacts with participants in a fun and caring way, and strives to find the birds that are on participants' "wish lists".

Our guide, Rob Williams, was exceptionally well qualified, good humoured in all circumstances and remarkably diligent in accommodating all levels of birding skills within our group. He went out of his way to make sure that each member of the group realised their expectations for the trip. We would welcome the opportunity to join him on additional trips; he is a quality individual with sound values and a superb representative of Rockjumper Birding Tours.
