It is a pleasure to thank you for the tour, it was very enjoyable to us both. It was very special to meet the birds and plants of the Mindo area with your help. We appreciated your knowledge in every matter - it enriched us very much. The tour was a highlight of trip. If I have another chance to visit in the area I will be very glad to enjoy your company and knowledge again.
Many thanks for a wonderfully organized trip that showed us so many different habitats in Ecuador, and so so many birds! I continue to be impressed with your skills and patience to show every person new birds.
Thank you very much indeed for a wonderful tour down the east slope. We all very much enjoyed your company as well as your formidable identification skills.

It is so exciting to see birds, to watch you find them and to hear you talk about nature in the tropics. Joanie and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip.
Wow, Charlie, and thank you for all this great info! You've been busy since our departure.
thank you for a marvelous time -- all the terrific birding and botanizing, all the great general conversation and neotropical education, all the plain FUN. Many, many priceless additions to my memory bank.
Charlie, thanks to you for such a wonderful time ...your knowledge of flora as well as fauna is outstanding!
Wow, what a trip. Ecuador is simply the most fascinating place to go birding - and Charlie Vogt is absolutely the best birding guide possible. Moss-backed, Blue-and-Yellow & Glistening-green Tanagers today! Plus many other great birds. ...much thanks to Charlie.
Thanks for everything. ...you planned a great two weeks on the road, with the visit to Antisana being the icing on the cake. The birding and wildlife watching was great, you certainly know the birds and where to find them!
Just wanted to say thanks again thanks for all your hard work and efforts in finding some great birds on our trips.
Excellent. Other than our delayed flight into Ecuador everything went beautifully.Roger Ahlman did an unreservedly exceptional job: amazing birding and people skills, helpfulness, patience, perseverance, humor, indefatigability.
a HUGE thank you for so patiently and expertly arranging our trip and guiding us with your encyclopaedic knowledge of all the flora and fauna, especially the BIRDS, and helping us to understand so many facets of Ecuador as a country and of Ecuadorian life. You were an amazing guide. I have come back with marvellous memories.
Thank you so many many times for the wonderful trip you organized and orchestrated for us. I can't believe the sights we saw, the variety of habitats and inhabitants, floral and faunal. And you taught us so much about their interdependence and co-evolution. Fascinating. I can understand your attachment to your adopted country and your profession.
I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful adventure and great company! I have been thinking about the weeks events and candidly the day spent with you was definitely a major highlight and most memorable. I will most assuredly recommend you highly to my brother who will be visiting the Galapagos early next year. Again, I wanted to thank you for a wonderful time.
I just wanted to say thank you for helping me out, your page will be a great addition to the material I plan to reference during our club meetings and field adventures. I am very grateful for all the information and resources you took the time to post.
