      This was definitely a trip of a lifetime and has made me want to return to India with Hillstar Nature tours. It was a chance to see a different diverse culture, enjoy the food, and the beautiful countryside and wildlife. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is curious, flexible, and loves the outdoors.

      Overall a great trip! Hotels were spectacular, especially Termales del Ruiz. Our guides were among the best and the group was awesome. Highly recommended.

      Fantastic trip with an uber number of bird species observed every day. Top notch guides, Josh and Christian, were not only knowledgeable but patient and helpful to those of us with less birding experience. Choices of locations and places to stay were excellent. Working with indigenous guides added a great dimension to the trip. I highly recommend this trip to any avid birder!

      If you want to learn huge amounts about the birds, mammals, ecology, and culture of India - and have a total blast while doing it, THIS is the trip for you! George Armistead is a gifted teacher. He makes people at all levels of learning feel welcome and excited about what they're seeing. Out in the field, he keeps up a regular commentary, naming birds and mammals as they're seen (are there any he can't identify?) and adding fascinating commentary from the world of ornithology. The trip was organized to a T. It's hard to make a trip like this go smoothly, but ours certainly did. Manisha, our Indian guide, was a wonderful complement - extremely knowledgeable about birds and mammals, full of local information, and a great addition to the fun of it all. Accommodations and food were outstanding. Overall: 10 stars out of 5!

      We really enjoyed the trip. The Asiatic Lion encounters were terrific. The birding was great, too. The accommodations were very nice and the staff at the lodges were wonderful. The food was delicious! Thank you, George, for a great trip!
