Magic birding circuit is the perfect name for it was truly MAGICAL. The owner George greeted our group of six at the airport and off we went. The accommodations at the San Jorde Eco-Lodge & Botanical Reserve in Quito were nice, the scenery beautiful and the al fresco lunch among the humming birds amazing. The staff was friendly and accommodating.... More

We started our vacation week at the highest elevation of the trip and loved the cool weather and great accommodations. The rooms were very nice and the spaceheater kept them comfortable at night. The meals were outstanding ( as they were the whole trip ) and the coffee was the best I've ever had. The trip to Yanacocha was definitely... More

I must take a moment to thank you for your great friendship and hospitality on our recent visit to San Jorge - The Magic Birding and Hiking Circuit of Ecuador. It is no wonder you have been awarded by Trip Advisor the Certificate of Excellence for the past three years. The entire trip from beginning to end was very well... More

We recently returned from the Magic Birding Circuit in NW Ecuador. As we are in our seventies and no longer as agile as we once were, we chose the Senior Tour with easier walks and more leisure time to enjoy the lodges and surrounds. Dr. Jorge Cruz was our host and guide. He is, of course, an excellent birder as... More

Our tour was in early July of 2013, and it is still a vivid pleasant memory of an enjoyable experience. Our tour was arranged through Natural Habitat Tours and included a day at San Jorge before going to the Galapagos. We extended the tour for an extra day at San Jorge. In addition to the beautiful grounds and tasty meals,... More

Trip Adviser My brother and I had tickets to Ecuador with the idea to travel on to the Galapagos Islands. We got a late start and as we researched our options mainland Ecuador emerged as more and more appealing for its highly concentrated biodiversity and unique and wildly varying geography. As life-long ardent amateur nature-lovers and hikers we agreed that... More

My sister and I took a 7 day tour staying at all three lodges. The tour was perfectly pre-arranged by Luis before we started for Ecuador. He also recommended superb hotels in Quito where we stayed before and after our tour began. Hacienda Jimanez near the airport had its own small nature reserve to explore, and Patio Andaluz in the...

Our visit to Tandayapa lodge by two couples in early December was excellent. The location in the cloud forest was well suited to seeing a wide variety of birds – especially hummingbirds! Booking over the internet was straight-forward and efficient, and the arrangements for transport from our Quito hotel to the lodge, and then to the Quito lodge and on... More

With 6 friends we stayed three days at the lodge in Quito and one couple spent a day at Tandayapa. We are not all birdlovers, but the accomodation was adequate to adapt to high altitudes after our trip to Galapagos Islands. The lodge in Quito is surrouded by wood and it is a nice area to hike and spot birds... More
