Private Guided Bird Watching Trips throughout Eastern Spain (Valencia, Alicante, Costa Blanca and Castilla de la Mancha)

TAWe are based in Valencia, Spain, one of Europe´s best birding destinations.  We provide private guided Bird Watching trips throughout Eastern Spain, encompassing Valencia, Alicante, Costa Blanca and Castilla de la Mancha. This area is blessed with an incredibly diverse range of habitats and excellent birding sites, many of which are virtually unknown!

We cater for all levels of bird enthusiasts and provide a bespoke guiding service at very reasonable cost. Our local knowledge can ensure that our clients can make the absolute most of their time in Spain by depending on us to take them to the very best sites. We are recommended on Trip Advisor.  You can read our clients´reviews here.
Our objective is simple…to provide our clients with a value-for-money service that is exactly tailored to their wishes and requirements.

Birds of Valencia

Our approach is what makes us different…Our business model is unlike that of most professional Bird Watching companies. Our approach is not simply to sell holidays purely dedicated to Bird Watching. Instead, we provide our services on a much more flexible basis, giving the client the opportunity to design their own holiday.

For example, if you´d like a holiday that would comprise a full week of guided Bird Watching, that can be easily arranged.  Alternatively, if you´re planning on spending some time in our area of Spain, and quite fancy a day or two Birding as part of your holiday, that is just as easy to organise.

If you´re new to Bird Watching and would like us to arrange a specific beginners´trip that´s also possible. Therefore, by being totally flexible and listening to your requirements, we can tailor our services to ensure that you gain maximum enjoyment without necessarily having to commit to a vacation that may not suit all the members of your party or family.  In this way, our clients have the option of combining Guided Birding with say a city break in Valencia or a holiday in the mountains or at the coast.

Our pricing structure is competitive, great value and fair…Here at Valencia Birding, we wish to make our guided Bird Watching tours available to all. Therefore, our pricing structure is thoughtfully and carefully designed. That is to say that it´s purposely designed to afford maximum value across all group sizes. We clearly understand that not all parties will comprise 8 people so have endeavoured to structure our pricing to provide superb value for smaller groups, couples or even individuals whilst still offering fair and competitive rates for larger groups.

    It´s hard to believe that we´re already in August! The year so far has been a very busy one and once more, I feel privileged to say that I have met some super clients with whom I´ve shared some very special birding moments. As always, it´s especially gratifying when people make return visits, and the year has seen some returning clients who over time have become friends. This year I´ve also been fortunate enough to welcome many clients from beyond Europe, mainly from USA and Canada. More importantly, I´d like to thank everyone for their support and for choosing to [read more]

    Last week, I had the pleasure of spending a day with a great couple from North Carolina.  They were visiting Spain with friends and had previosuly contacted us to arrange a day of guided birding from the city of Valencia. Having met them in the beautiful historic quarter of Valencia, we made the short journey to a local coastal wetland reserve where we began the day with a coffee and a chat about our trip and the species that we were hoping to see. The first coastal lagoons held Pochard, Little Grebe and Coot, whilst the surrounding reed beds gave [read more]

    Last week I had the pleasure of providing a trip for a group of local birders. We were joined by a guest from Canada who was spending some time in Valencia as a volunteer, working on various environmental and conservation projects.  One of our key priorities is always to gear our trips to the wishes and needs of the client. As this was her first visit to our region of Spain, we modified the trip to provide a blend of nature and cultural tourism in Valencia. We began the day with a walk along the coast not far from the [read more]

    Last week I provided a two day guided birding trip for a couple of great clients from Canada.  They were touring Spain and had previously arranged some guided bird watching in Valencia with us. Day one was a trip to the steppe and lagoons.  Having collected them from their hostal in the city of Valencia we made the short journey inland.  After a morning coffee we ventured out across the plains in search of one of their target species, the Great Bustard.  Our first stop did not reveal any bustards but the day did begin superbly with great views of [read more]

    I recently enjoyed a fabulous day with two wonderful clients from California, USA. They were visiting the city where they were performing in a music festival and had previously organised a day of guided bird watching in Valencia with me.  Both very keen and experienced bird watchers and photographers, they were very eager to see some of the amazing species that our wetlands hold, especially during the breeding season. Having driven the short journey through the beautiful city of Valencia, we arrived at the reserve and began our walk.  Almost immediately, we had views of a pair of Turtle Doves. [read more]
