Simon is a terrific guide -- the eyes, the ears, the knowledge all packaged in the most delightful person with the patience to herd cats!
Simon Thompson is one of the best trip leaders I have had the pleasure of being with. He has excellent birding skills as well as people skills. I would go anywhere on this planet with him. The pace was perfect - pleasantly tiring at the end of the day, but up early the next day with enthusiasm and energy.
