: Testimonial from John Morrison (john.morrison@wwwfus.org)
Yeo was extremely helpful and professional and I can recommend him without reservation. He was able to tailor our time together in order to assist me to find my target birds. The experience with the Malaysian rail babbler in particular was a lifetime highlight in a life full of wonderful wildlife observations.
