The Ultimate In Birding Tours

Forthcoming tours that are already operating and have space

December 11, 2020

Quite a lot of countries have now reopened for tourism.

To us, it would seem sensible to book on tours to destinations that are already open, or will reopen again, rather than on tours to places that are still closed and may not reopen in time. By doing that you can avoid disappointment later.

The following Birdquest tours in 2021 can already operate and still have one or more spaces available:

Please contact our office if you would like to join any of these tours.

Travel insurance is available for all these destinations (we can provide contact information to those booking), but kindly note that Covid-19 medical cover is, for many destinations, only available for those under 60.

We are, of course, operating additional tours and expeditions in 2021 to open countries, but these tours are already fully booked and so do not appear in the above list. You are welcome to ask to go on a waiting list.
