Client Testimonials

  • PanamaIan Brown, Australia

    I could not fault the arrangements for my Panama segment and Ignacio and his team were outstanding. Full credit to Ignacio for his patience with my obvious lack of photographic skills, especially in low light conditions, which was magnified by the damage to my equipment in Costa Rica. He was constantly advising on how I could make the most of all conditions and even went to the trouble of downloading the Nikon User manual so that he could fully understand my equipment.

    The two guides were amazing with their expertise and patience as well as an extraordinary ability to find birds. They were always offering to help carry my equipment or to make a pace that allowed me to keep up.

    Nando was a very caring and knowledgeable and his excellent English and driving skills would make him a valuable resource both as a driver/guide to Ignacio in photographic tours but also as a highly skilled bird guide. I would have no hesitation in using him again should I return to Panama.

    Ito was amazing in his home town and his ability to find rare and interesting birds almost at will were a skill that should be appreciated. The finding of Quetzals at any time either by location knowledge or call ups were very impressive. I felt very comfortable in his company and appreciated the skill set he brought which made this segment to the western highlands, so memorable.

    I have used guides in many parts of the world and these are at the top of the list and were far superior to my Costa Rican guide.

    Best wishes to the ORYX Photo Tours team!
