When Michael first guided us many years ago, he was already an accomplished and knowledgeable guide. His skills are even better now. His English is excellent, and he is very accommodating to his guests. All in all, it was a great day of birding.

Gonzalo picked us up two mornings for birding, one along the canal and pipeline road and another by boat. Both were great birding days. He knows the birds and where to find them and is a pleasure to be with all day.

We went on a half-day birdwatching tour with Gonzalo Horna along the Pipeline Road in Panama. Gonzalo is a superb guide with an uncanny ability to find and identify birds (and a spotting scope to let you take a close-up view). Highly recommendable!
