Private Guided Bird Watching Trips & Holidays Throughout Eastern Spain
We are based in Valencia, Spain, one of Europe´s best birding destinations. We provide private guided Bird Watching trips and holidays throughout Eastern Spain, encompassing Valencia, Castellon, Alicante, Costa Blanca and Castilla de la Mancha. This region 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 trips for individuals, couples, families, small groups, associations and specialist nature holiday providers. Our local knowledge ensures that our clients can make the absolute most of their time in Spain by depending on us to take them to the best sites.
Thanks to the support of our clients, and the kind reviews they have posted on Trip Advisor, we are proud holders of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. 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, focussing firmly on delivering top levels of service.
Our approach is what makes us different…Our business model is unlike that of most professional Bird Watching companies. We provide our services on a very flexible basis, working closely with our clients to design their trip or holiday. We have a range of single-day trips, but often work with our clients to design bespoke trips ranging from 2-day to 8-day packages.
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´s to say that it´s purposely designed to afford maximum value across all group sizes. We clearly understand that some clients will be travelling alone, whilst others will be part of a group. Therefore we 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. Contact us to discuss options and we´d be very happy to quote specific rates (without obligation).
