Yes, the birding -all ten days in southern Portugal- was fine,with our excellent guide Helder Cardoso. Highly knowledgeable, totally accommodating about scheduling, helpful about other interests we might have, with excellent English, a good driver - we couldn't ask for more. Indeed, we crossed paths several times with other birding groups and it must have been obvious that we were... More

Bernardo picked me up from my Lisbon hotel. We decided to go to the Sado estuary. Rice harvests attracted many birds. We sighted more than 50 different species & Bernardo knew exactly where to go to find each bird. His English was excellent & he also found us a fantastic local seafood restaurant for lunch. The flamingoes were special. I... More

Bernardo picked us up from our hotel at eight o'clock in the morning and we returned at seven in the evening very happy bird watchers having seen over eighty species on our day trip. Using Bernardo's expert knowledge we visited a variety of habitats and had good views of a range of birds - the highlights being a pallid harrier,... More

We stopped at various other points - the muddy shore as the tide went out, rice fields, a cork farm, and saw spoonbills, avocets, storks, egrets, stilts, herons etc. Our guide, Betty, was... More

A good guide. I saw 70 different birds, most of the ones, that are only seen in southern Europe (one day trip).

We did the 1/2 day Tagus Estuary tour with Bernardo in early September. Bernardo picked us up at our Lisbon hotel in the morning and within 30 minutes we had crossed the river and were birdwatching at the salt marshes. Bernardo was knowledgeable and personable. We saw about 60 species of birds that morning, including many flamingos, spoonbills, various types... More

Must complement Maria on a great half a day of birding around the Tagus estuary and farmland.around Lisbon. Maria was enthusiastic and took a lot of trouble covering quite a distance to show me the birds I showed an interest in seeing. I do not keep a list, but was sent one by Maria. Was surprised that we had clocked... More

Wonderful tour where we saw many birds new to us. Helder Cardoso was our guide. His knowledge of the birds and geography of the area is outstanding. He looked after us very well over the 5 days.

We went for a day with Maria Joao. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was wonderful. She took us to many places, each with different habitat and species, ensuring that we saw many great habitats and wide range of birds. Thank you!
