Right choice choosing St. Lucia Wildlife and Birding Ambassadors - SLBWA for our private day out
4025NOMAR, 06-02-2019
Communication between us and this operator were easy, I wanted a private day of birding for myself and my husband while in port on a Cruise and it all went as planned. Vision met us at exactly 8am and we started with the lower forest areas, saw many great birds and then by afternoon we drove a short distance to do some hiking in the rain forest for some additional birds like the St. Lucia Parrot and the St. Lucia Oriole to name a few. The hike was somewhat challenging so be prepared the rocks are slippery, made more difficult by the large camera and lens around my neck but the view and seeing the Parrots in the wild were definitely worth the climb. If I had to guess we probably identified 20-25 birds on our adventure and day birding.
Good day of Bird Watching at a very expensive price! see why below.

We saw 15 different bird species including a Cuckoo, shiny cowbirds, hummingbirds and doves to name a few. Also, our guide Vision identified many indigenous plants and trees. It was a very windy day so some birds were not seen that usually are. Our Guide Vision was raised in the area we bird watched so he was extremely knowledgeable. Be warned the price you pay on Viator is only for the transportation! We were charged an extra $90.00 for the guide!!!! Had we known this up front we would not have booked as in total was too expensive.
A nice half day of bird watching
thompso2, 12-12-2019
As beginner birdwatchers, we were looking for a half-day private tour and this one seemed to fit the bill. Even before we arrived, St. Lucian Taxi & Tours was very communicative and flexible in confirming our pickup time from our villa in Soufriere. The driver arrived on time in a clean car and was pleasant. We stopped to pick up the guide along the way, which made things a bit tight in the back seat (as there was an unused car seat). The tour took us to Enbas Saut rather than Millet, but we were fine with that. We had a nice three-hour walk on a mostly gravel road with our guide (Smith), who was very good at spotting and identifying birds, even repeating their whistles. We saw at least a dozen bird species, including all five endemic birds of St. Lucia, though not all up close. At the end of the tour, there was some confusion about who was responsible for the US$30pp park entrance fee, but the tour operator promptly made things right with us. All in all, we had a good time and were happy with the tour.
Hike but no birds
Barry T, 21-05-2022
We saw very few birds on the Millet hike so you must be sure you are booking the early morning bird watching tour not the later hike. However we saw many birds at our hotel (Regency La Toc). Storming Norman made things right by us and he is a gentleman and very professional.
Bird watching was a nice experience BUT BEWARE we were charged an extra $90.00
Barbara S, 19-06-2021
The Bird Watching was a great experience. Because it was a very windy day our guide, Vision, said many birds weren't seen. We saw 15 different species including a cuckoo, peewees, shiny cowbirds, humm6ingbirds and more. BUT here's the complaint we were told our initial payment of $64.62 per person (there were two of us) was only for the transportation. And then we were charged an extra $90.00 for the guide! A big surprise and not worth this experience.
