Saul is an excellent guide and great company. We did tours of both Pipeline and Plantation Rd, with him guiding us to 98 species seen and an additional 15 heard. Very fair on the price as well.

Saul has a superb knowledge and know-how of finding birds in Panama. You won't regret a tour with him and his technology in finding the birds of Panama, especially the Gamboa and Pipeline Road area. A half day well-spent.
