About Think Birding Ecuador

Think Birding is a British based company which specialises in creating outstanding bird watching and nature holidays. We organise holidays for individuals, families and groups.

What makes Think Birding stand out from the rest?

Whilst there are lots of travel companies offering birding holidays to Ecuador, Think Birding are exceptional in that we specialise only in Ecuador (and with it of course Galapagos) and we understand the birding market extremely well. Think Birding founders Rachel and Santiago, have decades of experience living and working in Latin America – and along with one of the leading bird guides in Ecuador, William Perez and the well-travelled conservationist Fiona Perez, we  will personally plan and create your trip with you. This means a very high level of expertise, knowledge and service offered to you at every step. We have a team of hand-picked expert birding guides and tourism specialists on the ground in Ecuador with offices in Quito, providing superb service and support throughout your holiday in Ecuador.

Our ethos is simple and lies at the heart of everything we do: Nothing is too much trouble. This ethos has been central to the success of our sister company, Think Galapagos, who specialise in trips to Galapagos.

Think Birding know this vast and varied country inside out and are passionate about sharing the amazing birds, scenery and wildlife with others.

We believe your trip to Ecuador should truly be the holiday of a lifetime – and we plan each trip in meticulous detail. Some people want to bird until they drop, others would prefer to enjoy birding at a more leisurely pace and it is no problem to accommodate either when we design the trip with you. Our expert knowledge allows us to select the best possible routes, guides and accommodation to suit you. Each trip we create is tailor made, which means your holiday itinerary is designed around your interests, abilities and budget, allowing you to explore what you want to see at your own pace and staying in accommodation that suits you. 

Our main focus is on birds but we consider conservation a priority in Ecuador and would like to encourage people to learn about both whilst visiting.  With our specialist teams on the ground in the UK and Ecuador, we provide unrivalled knowledge and impartial advice to create the ultimate birding holiday for you. 


We tailor your holiday to your budget and our prices at all the hotels are the same as if you booked direct. This means our holidays are competitively priced as well as offering outstanding levels service and support.
