Santiago is one of the most knowledgeable people we have ever traveled with. Not only does he know birds, he knows history and geographic info, info about volcanoes and ecological issues in this area and much more. We saw birds we will never see again - the rufous bellied seedsnipe, Andean potoo, several unusual hummingbirds and more. He is very personable and we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darryl, Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure sharing the day with you; thank you for choosing me as part of your time in Ecuador. I look forward to our next trip!

Santiago was a superior guide - it is obvious that he is very proud of his country and more than eager to share his knowledge about history, cultures, and many more topics. We were interested in photography of birds and mammals and he worked tirelessly to find new species for us. Although we didn't see the spectacled bear, we returned to the same viewing spots several times in case a bear was visible. Santiago speaks excellent English and is a very safe driver. We would highly recommend him!!!
He was knowledgeable, adapted the tour to suit my age and followed up with emails concerning the birds we had seen. On top of this he was a very pleasant person to spend the day with.
