"The tour was a good introduction to what photographic possibilities the boat offers and next time we'll be able to concentrate on just a few subjects: Snail Kite, Anhinga, and so on. We had a good day on the lake, and I would certainly recommend the experience to anyone."  James A. Christensen  <james.a.christensen ( AT )>

"...We had a great time on the tour. We saw the most birds on your boating tour.  It was nice just to sit and  look for the birds... Thank you for being part of our wonderful trip to Panama and the          memories we have ot it..." Eva Gonyer, <Legonyer ( AT )> 

"The Rio Chagres is a great place for birds and the best way to see them is with Gonzalo. His boat is purpose built, roomy and stable, and Gonzalo knows where to go. He is also a nice guy"  Michael Bruxner < mbruxner ( AT )>

"It was nice to have someone that spoke proper English, and was very courteous and easy to work with. I highly recommend Gonzalo for birding by boat and land. Panama was a wonderful trip and having a friendly travel guide made our trip even more enjoyable seeing Panama. He knew the areas extremely well. We felt safe and comfortable and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend his personalized travel tours he offers to avid bird lovers and it will be a wonderful memory to last a life time."  Carol & Robert Poole
