What independent birders say about CAYAYA BIRDING helping to organize their trip

November 2016, semi-independent birding loop through Guatemala
"We generally travel independently but had little time to organise a birding trip to Guatemala. Claudia & Knut organised a fantastic birding trip that met all of our expectations. We birded alone in some places and with guides in others and saw all of our target species and more. Great logistical organisation and Claudia & Knut helped ensure that we did not waste valuable birding time when our flight to Tikal was delayed. Guatemala is a fantastic country and we would thoroughly recommend using CAYAYA BIRDING. Thanks very much Claudia & Knut."

My Wife and I used CAYAYA BIRDING to arrange all of our ground transportation, lodging and guides for our trip to Tikal, Guatemala. Claudia was wonderful to work with and everything from the van driver to our birding guide Luis were absolutely top notch. The trip was an outstanding experience. I would give my highest recommendation to CAYAYA BIRDING for anyone traveling to Guatemala.

We have just returned home from Guatemala and I wanted to send you a note to express how thoroughly we enjoyed our travels in your country: our trip was everything and more than we had imagined and wished for!! We feel fulfilled by the beauty of the land and the kind spirit of the people. We are extremely grateful for your help in making our trip come together; every service which you arranged for us was wonderful, without exception.
By far, the absolute best part was your wonderful guides: Josué and Luis!! At our request, our tours with them were conducted in Spanish. They taught us so very much, generously sharing their knowledge and expertise, as well as their love for nature, community and their homeland. They listened to our interests and fine-tuned the touring for our needs. They were patient and professional and fun.
The drivers were all professional, punctual and conscientious about our safety and comfort.
Guatemala is now in our hearts! Thank you, Claudia.
Laura Werner and Joe Rivera, USA.
