yeah,

run by Gunnar Engblom

nice bloke

trips are very 'budget birder' oriented. he can get you to the birds cheaply but it might be a bit of an adventure. some don't like it that way, others love it... a bit of net research should yield some interesting results!

Since earlier years they've changed quite a bit and now offer trips at various levels; from the very basic to the luxurious (as "luxurious" as possible in some of these regions - don't expect 5 star hotels in the Amazon! Indeed, at a few of the top birding localities in Peru camping is the only option). The most luxurious tours are sold under the sub-name "Marvellous Spatuletail Tours". When it comes to showing people the birds they're as good and reliable as the other well established companies. Gunnar Engbloem has also been in the very front when it comes to finding areas that previously were unvisited by groups. BTW; Gunnar is a member of BF...

your idea of 'budget' and mine I very different Tim! Budget for me is buses and a few trip reports.

Do recommend their pelagic as there is probably no other reasonable way to get the see birds.

me too Steve

I've never been on any of his trips and have always done it myself. But he is a lot cheaper than the major operators...by a long way, and invilved in conservation projects on the ground over there too which counts for a heck of lot

Thinking about it I do have some opinions about Kolibri - which I think I'd rather share by PM.
