What birders say about
Birding Antigua Guatemala with
Knut Eisermann & Claudia Avendaño

"Claudia Avendaño and Knut Eisermann are likely the two most experienced bird guides in Guatemala. I have been birding with them several times at El Pilar and Finca Filadelfia near Antigua. Both are extremely knowledgeable, organized and delightful to be with. As they are local, they have detailed knowledge of birds, birding sites, transportation and logistics of Guatemala that no international tour organization could possibly compete with."
Kevin Omland, Baltimore, MD, USA.

"I have been on guided bird watching trips in Africa, Europe, Central and South America and the United States. My day with Claudia in El Pilar, Antigua, Guatemala was absolutely one of the most enjoyable of all of them. She was very professional, both as an ornithologist and a guide. She asked questions and listened to what my objectives were and delivered on those objectives. She spent the day not just trying to impress me with her knowledge and skills, although she was terrific at both, but ensuring I had an enjoyable experience, and my birding objectives were met. She has my full endorsement for birders of all levels."
Peter Konrad, Colorado

"Knut Eisermann and Claudia Avendaño are the true “Bird Whisperers” of Guatemala. My two days of birding with them absolutely exceeded my expectations. They made themselves available before and after my trip to answer all of my bothersome questions. I’ve birded the world and rate them two of the best."
Bob Loy, New Mexico.

"Had a fantastic birding with Knut in El Pilar. Organizing the day was very easy through website and followups in WhatsApp. The birding day was tailored to my desires and we had 70+ species for this day including some fantastic time in a blind getting great looks at warblers. Highly recommend and would repeat!"
Joseph McKenna.

"My wife and I spent a wonderful day with Claudia Avendaño birding at the end of a weekend stay in Antigua. We have gone birding with world class guides in Ecuador, Peru, Costa Rica and Panama, and I can say without hesitation that Claudia is in that class." Joel Rosenthal, Miami, Florida, USA, 2019.

"Birded with Knut Eisermann one day in Finca Pilar close to Antigua. Would have to say he is one of the best birding guides I have ever hired. The Guatemalan Pygmy-Owl and the Ocellated Quail were just two of the great birds we saw that day. Without him as a guide I would have found very few birds. I have also birded with Claudia Avendaño, and they are both great birding guides."
Mike Parker, USA.

"Five days in the company of Knut Eisermann birding the hills and valleys of the countryside surrounding Antigua, Guatemala was an absolute delight. Knut is as much an ornithologist, with a special interest in owls, as he is a birder and this made the trip extra special. I am a serial guide user in the Americas and Knut is up there with the best of them." Kevin Buckley, New Jersey, USA, 2018.
