Comments from our customers about our natural history tours

Our air-conditioned coach with a window seat for everyone (42 seats for 19 people) was sheer luxury. The guided tours by our interpreter of some old town centres and historic sites, and photo stops at picturesque villages all added to the cultural experience in addition to the nature. Within a day or two the group had gelled and a party atmosphere made the whole experience so much more enjoyable. To be with people of similar interests and outlook was a joy. Nearly 80 species of butterfly and 216 species of bird were identified in addition to many flowers, beetles and some mammals.
