    We did a one day bird tour with BirdsChile mid-April 2018. It was one of the best days of our three week trip in Argentina and Chile. The guide was very knowledgeable about the birds we saw and also about the habitats we visited and Chile in general. A very engaging and hospitable guide. We were staying at Puerto Varas and visited Vincente Perez Rosales NP and other areas, including the ocean nearby. We saw some 1000 year old alerce trees which were great to see. I would definitely do another tour with BirdsChile and recommend them. A great day out!

    My husband and I used BirdsChile for a two day birding trip based out of Santiago. One was up in the Andes and the second was near the coast. Both days were filled with birds. Our guide, Rodrigo, was knowledgeable, friendly, and very professional. His English was also quite good. Our driver, Claudia, was also very good. We felt safe and confident with her driving.
