Rob Williams is the best guide I have ever birded with - wonderful birding and people skills.

Guides were awesome. Found lots of birds; guide was way too knowledgeable about the bird species and taxonomy.

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.

Forrest Rowland is a terrific guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable of the birds we encountered on our trip. Further, he is very friendly, engaging and enthusiastic. I’d be quite pleased to join him again on any birding tour in the Neotropics.

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".
