This is a small and fairly new business enterprise that has aspirations to gain a larger part of the international birding market and if our (wife and I) trip is anything to go by, they very much deserve to succeed. Firstly they are reliable and trustworthy, essential when you have to pay upfront as you will be required to do. Omar is the main man but he can hardly be a better guide than our appointed guide - Cesar. In a word, he was amazing. He could spot a bird in a tree across a wide valley and have the telescope (his second wife!) on it before we could find it with binoculars. In fact, never known a guide so proficient with a telescope. Closer by he would hear a bird call in the bush, that we never even detected and was immediately able to identify it and, usually, find it. Cesar's English was impeccable, which together with his amiable personality and intelligence, made for easy and pleasant conversation over meals for instance.
We only did a 4 night trip over the Manu road but still produced over 200 good sightings - we only count good sightings! This is not the safest of roads but the driver gave us absolutely no cause for concern.
In conclusion, I can thoroughly recommend this outfit for any birding trip in Peru and wish them every success in the future.

My husband and I wanted to see the birds of southern Peru so we choose Peru Birding Tours, operated by Omar Diaz. There were many combinations of places and length of time, so we did a 19-day trip which included Machu Picchu, Manu Road and the Amazon basin. Omar did not disappoint us as the birds abounded wherever we went. We stayed at comfortable lodges and in some cases, quite remote, where the only way to reach the lodge was by motorized boat. There was limited electrical power in these areas so candle light was necessary in the evenings, but we didn't mind since we were tired birders by then. Meals were also good as we enjoyed Peruvian cuisine. Omar is a fantastic guide and with a somewhat flexible schedule, he tired to maximize the opportunity and experience of our trip.
