I am writing on behalf of Robert Wall from Australia... Before arriving in Puerto Varas I booked a birding tour with Birds Chile; One objective was to see some of the locel birds, the other was to visit Alerce Andino National Park, particularly to see the famed Alerce trees. From the initial booking with Teresa, everything was easy, well-organized and... More

We did two of their day tours -- one for general hiiking and visiting the main park, and one for birding Chiloe and visiting the penguin colony. Teresa was wonderful to work with in getting these trips organized, and the guides (Carlos and Ha) and driver (Jorge) were quite knowledgable, professional, friendly, and spoke excellent English. Everything went great and... More

What a memorable trip with BirdsChile--the beautiful birds, the stunning landscapes, the knowledgeable guides who made birding look easy. Our trip included two days in the Santiago area, four sunny ones in the Lake District with Raffaele (even seeing the rare Pudu deer) and four in Patagonia with Natalia, where we had almost perfect weather in Torres del Paine National...

Had two great days hiking in varied terrain around Puerto Varas with Birds Chile, one on the flanks of Osorno volcano and one in the temperate rainforest of Alerce Andino NP. Both walks demonstrated a variety of flora and fauna across several different habitats. Guides (Marcela & Isabel - one day each) were knowledgable about a broad range of subjects... More

De vacaciones en Puerto Varas, tuvimos una gran experiencia en el Parque Nacional Alerce Andino, con una experimentada guía, quien compartió con nosotros sus conocimientos y amor por la naturaleza. Todo muy bien organizado por BirdsChile, gracias a Tere, Alejandra y Gabriel. Fue un lindo día y de todas maneras repetiremos la experiencia en otros parajes tan hermosos como este,... More

A nice lady guide (Marcela) but not a bird expert by any means. We saw less than 20 species of birds in an area of more than 200 species resident. She was 20 minutes late at the cruise terminal. Had virtually no playback help. Very casual and not intent or urgent on seeing birds after we spent (must be paid... More

We loved Marcela!!! She bonded instantly with my 8 year old son, my 70+ year old parents loved her too. She knew so much about where to go look for different birds, and shared her knowledge about trees and habitat and animals. We learned so much and saw so much. The penguins and sea lions at Punihuil are a must... More

Even though we experienced some typical Lake District weather (a few showers, some pretty heavy!) we still had a great time with Raffaele who helped us see some of the local specialities in a range of habitats. We were also very lucky to see the rare Pudu (very small deer) in the rainforest. Raffaele was an excellent, enthusisatic guide and... More

We found everything we were looking for on this day trip to Chiloe: penguins and many other bird species, beautiful scenery, and natural and cultural history. What a lfun, interesting, and entertaining day. Raffaele is an expert guide. He has a detailed knowledge of Chile's natural wonders, was happy to answer our many questions, and also has an easy-going attitude... More
