Esteban was terrific at finding the birds we sought. He will customize the pace and flavor of your tour, depending on if you're a nature lover who wants to see a range of birds, or a lister seeking target species. We saw over 60 species in one morning at Curi Cancha and near Santa Elena - and this was after he sprung to action making me numerous phone calls to help me search for my binoculars that went missing on the public bus. His English is excellent and in addition to being an informed naturalist, he has a good sense of humor and knows how to create a terrific adventure. I highly recommend him.

Esteban was great!! He took my boyfriend and I on a private night tour and made a large effort to show us everything we asked to see! He's not only incredibly knowledgeable of the wildlife, but we really benefitted from the private, small group! All the other night tours were so large, you can tell people can't hear the guide! It was quite an amazing experience that I would definitely recommend!

Our guided tours of SantaMaria and Curi Cancha with Esteban were among the highlights of our trip. Esteban is professional, punctual, a first-rate naturalist, and a nice guy. We saw a number of quetzals, a sloth, a kinkajou, and much more. We learned a lot and had a great time-- a win-win! Thanks Esteban!

Our last trip was better than our first two. We met him on our first trip and we made arrangements with him on our 2nd and 3rd. He led us four days; he knows where the birds are, and calls them in; he imitates them so precisely they can't resist him. He remembered what we had seen and took us places to find different birds. He is planning a fourth trip for us in areas we have not explored and is eager to show us even more exciting birds. He's the best...funny, professional, and can tailor trips to any family. His connections may help you get access to lodges the general public does not.

One of the best parts of our trip! Esteban was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. Responded very quickly to emails. Really took the time to explain the cloud forest and found lots of animals. We took a morning tour and were even able to see Quetzals!! My only regret is that we didn't get to take a night tour with him. We will be back for sure!! Thanks Esteban
