Did the trip: On both sides of the Andes

As an avid nature traveler (as well as a biodiversity researcher retired from the Canadian Wildlife Service), I'd like to personally congratulate you on your outstanding tour-operating skills. I was personally impressed by your professionalism during a tour led by an outstanding connoisseur of nature and Andean birds in Ecuador. The latter, Mr. Xavier Amigo (a former French Catalan) runs 'Nature Expérience', an Ecuadorian travel agency remarkable for the diversity and exceptional quality of its nature tours in Latin America. Thanks to the ornithological and ecological knowledge of our two guides, our group of 12 “birders” were able to observe over 500 species of birds (in just two weeks!) last March. Personally, my training in ecosystem ecology and biodiversity has enabled me to marvel even more at the biological richness of the many Andean natural environments we visited [from subtropical rainforest 'altitude (700m) to paramo (4200m). I must also mention the excellent communication and animation skills of these two remarkable guides.
