We complete our series of tours by visiting several Incan archaeological sites, which also includes some very interesting birding. Starting in the Incan Capital of Cusco, we explore the Sacred Valley and other Incan heritage sites covering Sacsayhuaman, Qenko, Pisac, Moray, Lago Huaypo, Ollantaytambo and perhaps the most famous tourist site in the world, Machu Picchu. We also have very good opportunities of finding the localised endemic, Inca Wren, alongside other avian treats, including Chestnut-breasted Mountain Finch, Bearded Mountaineer, and Parodi’s Hemispingus.

What our clients say about us

Robert Williams
GW, Peru 2022

This is my first birdwatching tour organized by a company such as Rockjumper, but I have been on tours organized by my local Naturalist Society. Both Rob and Miguel were excellent. They worked extremally hard to keep everyone happy, find as many species as possible and get everyone onto each sighting.

Forrest Rowland
GR, Peru 2018

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.

Robert Williams
JH & CH, Southern Peru

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.

Robert Williams
UA, Peru

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.

Robert Williams
PM, Peru

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