I rate this trip outstanding in every aspect. The three lodges we stayed at were surrounded by acres of protected habitat and were a joy to experience. The food and service were superb at each lodge and all staff members were eager to attend to any requests from us. My group of four birders of medium ability were treated like...

My wife and I have taken a number of bird photography trips to South America and San Jorge Eco Lodges turned out to be top notch from beginning to end. Our accommodations, food, guide and transport were all excellent. We wanted this to be more of a bird photo trip and less of a birding 'tick' trip – we weren’t...

My husband and I are very interested in birds and photography. We decided to go to Ecuador because of its close proximity to the US. Our time was limited to only four days. From the start we planned to go to San Jorge Eco-Lodge in Tandyapa. Cheryl was our organizer from the US. She helped us plan out what we...

Beautiful older property, but very well maintained. Very quaint, lots of restored antiques. Numerous hummingbird feeders and hummingbirds. Lots of places to walk on the property and good birding. Great local cuisine cooked fresh and served in the dining room. Lots of fresh fruit and juices. No WiFi in the rooms, but available if you find a place to sit...

The San Jorge Quito Lodge is part of the "Magic Birding Circuit" and if you want to see many birds this company has expert guides. Dr. Jorge Cruz and and fellow guide, Miguel worked very hard and showed remarkable skills in finding birds often going out of their way to locate a target bird when requested. We appreciated that the...

We went to three lodges. Lots of birds at all the lodges. Our guides were great. The food was so good I could talk about for hours. Our rooms were good but at Tandayapa and Milpe they were super. They took care of everything. We would go back in a heart beat. PS We got to photograph the Condor. Bob...

Very beautifull lodge, very good food, good birding and very good service. Lovely place to stay. Many hummingbirds at the feeders (six different species). Walked around with a very good birding guide and saw lots of birds.

We stayed at San Jorge Quito as part of a package that included stays at the other lodges at Tandayapa and Milpe as well. San Jorge organised everything which included all transfers and a number of day trips to a range of locations such as Otavalo and Antisana. The lodge at Quito met all our needs and the staff were...

Vacation. Experience. Adventure. Education. San Jorge Magic Birding Circuit was all of the above and more. Indeed, the San Jorge Magic Birding Circuit is a diamond in the rough…it’s relatively hard to get to but once you are there it shines with all the beauty and diversity Ecuador has to offer. My wife and I spent time in three of...
