    Enjoyed a six-day custom tour of Northern Colombia led by a fantastic guide Jaruen who is local to the coast. Choosing an operator can be a daunting task but Chris Calonje of Colombia Birdwatcher put together a beautiful trip full of mountain/ocean scenery, birds and fantastic food! We stayed at El Dorado which no birder should miss, where else can you see Blackburnian warblers picking moths off a glass dining wall while you eat? We requested stops too at Tayrona Park and La Victoria Coffee Farm (see for yourself the colorful birds who benefit from sustainable, organic coffee farming) in addition to hotspots the company offered. Our guide Jaruen was even a former ranger at Tayrona! At La Guajira we met an additional local guide, just one of the extra touches that made this trip special. It was a joy to see local indigenous folk on this journey too, members of kogi and wayuu tribes. Each stop added new habitats! Come for the birds and stay for the food, fresh fish from the coast was incredible, these guys know best the places to find birds AND to eat! Cannot thank enough Chris, Jaruen and all the people who made this a very special tour! We'll be back!

    This was an excellent private tour for my wife and me. We saw well over 300 bird species, which is a lot more than we saw on any of our other travels (including Brazil, Peru, Ecuador). Our guides, Jose Luna in the Cali region, and Angel Ortiz in Santa Marta, were knowledgeable, keen-eyed, and extremely helpful. The food was good, and so were the lodges. All in all this was a first-rate birdwatching tour.

    The group of 4 friends from UK and Canada were escorted around the some of the principle birding sites over 3 weeks on a private tour organised by Chris Colonje- Bogota/La Florida/Chingaza, Cali/Km18/San Antonio/Sonso Lagoon/Tatama NPk/Rio Blanco/Los Nevados, Baranquilla/Minca/El Dorado Lodge/Tayrona NPk area/Los Flamencos NPk.. Our 3 guides, Juan Carlos,Jose and Angel were excellent birders and were very attentive and considerate to our individual needs. The accommodations were good to excellent, much better than anticipated and meals very good throughout. We saw almost 500 species including over 50 endemics/near endemics and over 60 hummingbirds. Apart from the essential early starts each day, the birding was relaxed and leisurely to suit our particular group, the organisation was superb and the guides adapted the itinerary to our needs; had we wanted a more intense experience and our guides were capable of finding us many more species. Colombia is a fantastic country for birding, the infrastructure was much better than anticipated and the scenery wonderful.
