Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our guide was Camilo and we had a perfect morning with him! Camilo is the kindest of souls, with a deep understanding of the area’s birds and many other living things. It was so easy to converse in English with Camilo and our group really enjoyed asking him all sorts of questions. He knew the answer to all questions- he’s a magician! Our group had no experience with bird watching but absolutely loved the whole experience. What a great way to engage with nature in a patient, thoughtful way. Camilo brought us to this hole-in-the-wall breakfast spot in the middle of the tour for an excellent, authentic Salento meal. Camilo really made our day and time in Salento, and I could not more highly recommend his services!

We had a wonderful experience! Ivan was a great guide - very friendly, astute at finding birds and making sure everyone in our group got to see them, and had fantastic English. Our group was a mix of folks who have lived in Colombia for a long time and those for whom this was a first trip, and we all thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Beautiful, relaxing setting and a great variety of birds!

We had an awesome time on this tour. It was a total of 6 hours; 4 bird-watching and 2 at the coffee bean farm. Highly recommend!

Spent an awesome morning with Juan who was very knowledgeable about all the Colombian birds (and also knew lots about plants too!). The weather was really nice which definitely helped our luck - heads up that Salento is quite a rainy place and I think that would impact what you saw so check the forecast before booking if you can! We were delighted to see a hummingbird within the first 5 minutes and we also got to see a female andean cock of the rock! Thanks to Juan knowing where she was nesting. Juan also managed to spot a spectacled owl nestled deep within the trees which was awesome. Overall a great day. Maybe consider packing swimming stuff in case you get the chance to swim in the Santa Rita waterfalls!
Knocked a star off as it was the most expensive thing we did in Colombia by a really big margin! I've paid a similar amount for a similar tour in Extremadura in Spain so it could just be that this is what it costs but it just felt a little incongruous with everything else we did (coffee tours, a three day trek which cost a tenth of one we did in Chile, thermal springs, etc). But absolutely no disrespect intended to Juan's wonderful bird expertise and good sense of humour 😊

We loved this trip. Ivan was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and very good at pointing out the birds to us. We saw approximately 35 different birds and had a wonderful walk round Salento too.

We went on the Yellow-eared parrot tour (not on Tripadviser, but the Advistando Aves Andina website) that went to Carbónera. Awesome experience. We saw a lot of fascinating and beautiful birds with the easily usable equipment that was great for my friend with little experience with binoculars. Our guide, Ivan, was fantastic. Clearly loves his job and sharing his passion for birds with the people on the tour. Our driver Jorge was also great with driving the Willy. I recommend standing when in the back of the Willy and getting close to Carbónera. It’s just like being on a roller coaster, but with better scenery and you feel very safe with Jorge driving. The breakfast and lunch at the finca was delicious—even the vegetarian option—and can’t beat the scenery there. Just make sure to bring a wind breaker or jacket/sweater because it can be chilly up there with the wind. This tour was definitely the highlight of our two-week Colombia trip!

One of my favorite experiences on our trip to the coffee region! We had a wonderful morning in Santa Rita with John, who helped two beginners see nearly 80 species. He knew the answer to every question I could think of, about the specific species as well as the ecology of the area — and lots more I would have never thought to ask about! He was also great company for a half-day excursion. The hike itself was also enjoyable and we took a quick dip in the waterfall. The team that puts together this tour is very active in conservation efforts and their enthusiasm is infectious. Highly recommended!

I had an incredible experience Birdwatching with Ivan from Andean Tours this morning whilst Salento was mostly still in bed. Not only incredible for the 5.6 richter Earthquake that shuck us on the Salento Bridge (?!) but for the 53 different species of birds we managed to see thanks to Ivan’s wonderful expertise. Highlights ranged from the colourful Toucanet, Rose Breasted Grosbeak and the Andean Motmot to the more muted house wren. Ivan was great company too. Highly recommend this.

It was a great way to end our trip in Salento! Ivan is very knowledgeable and accommodating. We were able to do the tour for 3 hours since we had a flight to catch later. The highlight was seeing a toucanet! Will definitely come back for more birding!
