We took our first bird watching trip to Colombia, with Cheeseman's, and LOVED it. The guides were excellent (and fun! we are still in touch on FaceBook); the accommodations and travel arrangements were perfect (clean, quiet, pleasant). We saw hundreds of new bird species, loved walking throughout the jungles of the Andes ... and also got to sample quite a bit of Colombia itself with visits to several iconic towns such as Cali and Manizales; working with local guides; meeting a local botanist at his organic farm. The food was a little drab, but that's simply the local fare in Colombia and not to be helped at small lodges way out in the middle of the forest ... but happily our guide brought along some delicious spices for those of us who like more flavor.

My old prof from DeAnza is the best. If you are interested in wildlife and have a thing for biology, this is the group for you. I went on countless whale watching trips and safari in Tanzania. Every trip was awesome.

My husband and I went to Tanzania and Kenya with Cheesemans' in February 2014. There is no substitute for experience . Doug and Gail Cheeseman created an exceptional and flawless experience for us. We trusted them with our lifelong dream trip to Africa, and they did not disappoint. The majority of our safari-mates had been on one or more safaris with Cheesemans' previously. I will be going to Africa again with them in 2015!

I was here with my friends last December and I must say, our expedition to Everest base camp was one of the most memorable moments in my life!

Suresh was very accommodating to us and he was a great host while we were in Kathmandu. I highly recommend getting Rakesh as a guide, he is the epitome of greatness!
