BIRDING TOURS, BIRD PHOTO TOURS
BIRD PHOTO WORKSHOPS
We offer quality ANYTIME birding tours and bird/wildlife photo tours for any dates you wish to travel. Our ANYTIME tours are basically private tours offered at a price similar to many comparable group tours to the same destinations. We also offer SCHEDULED birding tours, bird/wildlife photo tours, and bird photography workshops for pre-arranged departure dates. All tours are led by an expert birding guide who is highly knowledgeable about birds and other animals in the destination country. Photo workshops are conducted by a highly qualified expert photographer, Laura L Fellows, whose images adorn our website.
ANYTIME TOURS & SAFARIS
Our ANYTIME tours are designed with you in mind. You choose the dates you wish to travel, we make the arrangements, you enjoy the tour. You can select any of our pre-planned itineraries for the destination country of your choice. If you'd like to customize our published itinerary to suit your preferences, we can usually accommodate that as well. When you contact us with specific dates in mind for one of our tours, we'll check availability of the guide and accommodations. Once availability is verified, you can confirm your reservation with a deposit. This deposit will be non-refundable if you request guaranteed departure or choose not to list the tour on our website as a SCHEDULED tour. If you choose to list the tour as a SCHEDULED tour for your dates and additional people sign up, your tour price will become the usually lower group price instead of our ANYTIME price. If no one else signs up and you did not request guaranteed departure, you retain the option to do the tour at the ANYTIME price or have your deposit refunded. To ensure availability of dates, you should arrange your tour as far in advance as possible. We recommend at least 6-12 months advance notice depending on your destination since guides and accommodations often book up early, especially during high season. Also, the earlier you register, the more time we have to attract additional participants if you want your tour published as a scheduled tour. For details please refer to our Refund Policies. Group prices automatically apply when 4 or more persons enroll in an ANYTIME tour even if it's not offered as a SCHEDULED tour.
SCHEDULED TOURS & SAFARIS
In addition to ANYTIME tours, we offer SCHEDULED tours for pre-arranged dates. Our scheduled tours may be tours already arranged as an ANYTIME tour for other clients, in which case the tour is guaranteed to go unless someone cancels and puts us below the minimum, or it's a tour we scheduled that requires us to meet our group minimum. If you sign up for a scheduled tour that fails to meet the minimum, you'll have the option of either converting the tour to an ANYTIME tour at the ANYTIME tour price or receiving a refund of your deposit, whichever you prefer.
