We love guiding tours and it shows.
We gauge a tour's success not by the birds seen or the revenue generated but by the smile on your face at tour's end. Tours are not scientific expeditions--they are vacations. At Field Guides we never forget that the quality of your experience comes first. And that is a great motivator for diligence and thoroughness in every tour we plan, with each guide or tour manager we invite to join our community of professionals, and for every lodge or transportation provider with whom we choose to work.
"Thank you Dave, Tom, and staff for a wonderful Field Guides travel and birding experience! Sightings of many special bird species including the Montezuma Quail, and many close-up and personal encounters with birds and other wildlife brought this tour beyond my greatest expectations. It was a lot of fun."

"The enthusiasm, kindness, birding knowledge, and patience of your guides is amazing to me. How they can stay organized and on 24/7 is a true talent. I am looking forward to my next trip with Field Guides."

"The level of birding skill, knowledge, and professionalism of the guides for Field Guides is so far beyond that of other companies I have birded with that there really is no comparison. Megan exemplified this to the fullest. And, obviously, this translates directly into the extremely high quality of the birding experience of this trip."
--T. G., Guyana
"The Field Guides experience has made a huge difference in my life. Through the recommendation of a friend, I found Field Guides and went to Costa Rica. I've just been to Ecuador... and to be able to travel to interesting destinations, make new friends who share my love of birding, and see phenomenal birds all within the confines of a safe, extremely well-run trip is priceless."
--J. G., Holiday at San Isidro, Ecuador
"I have never been disappointed on a Field Guides tour and this was no exception."
