Very much enjoyed our morning with Maria as our guide to the Tagus estuary. We were picked up punctually from our accommodation in Lisbon and transported over the Vasco da Gama Bridge - very near to Lisbon but lovely to see the countryside outside of the city. Maria was friendly and enthusiastic and took us to some great birding locations.... More

Our birding Tagus estuary tour with Bernardo will live in the memory for a very long time. Bernardo's knowledge of his subject is encyclopaediac and he has the ability to communicate in a quiet,engaging manner. Over the course of the sunny afternoon, we experienced around 60 bird species, a number which far exceeded our expectations. The sightings of the spotted... More

The Tagus estuary tour with Helder exceeded my hopes for the day. Helder's knowledge is impressive, & he shared this in a gentle engaging manner. At the end of the day I had seen more species than I expected, developed a deeper appreciation of local birds & ecology, acquired more understanding of the social & cultural history of Portugal, &...

We weren't hard core birders and it was so helpful to have someone to take you to the right places, (three very different habitats} provide the necessary gear and explain what things were (and all in excellent English). Helder was an excellent guide and 79 species including quite a few new ones for me was a respectable tally. Even my... More

Our guide, Bernardo, couldn´t have been better. Not only is he very knowledgeable but his enthusiasm is infectious. He clearly loves sharing Portugal´s birds with his guests. Though he sees these birds every day, his excitement in identifying them for us was fresh and alive. His spotting scope allowed us a close look. We saw a wide variety of birds... More

We did the birdwatching tour with Bernardo in the Tagus Estuary and it was a great experience! Thanks to Bernardo we have seen many species as he knows exactly where to find all of them. We were glad that we have chosen this tour and if we visit Portugal in the future we will definitely take the tour again!

Birding in Tagus Estuary with Birds and Nature Tours was a highlight of our Portugal trip. Bernardo's advice concerning which tour to do, and his absolute proficiency with bird/nature species and the language, as well as his preparedness and easy-going personality made for a fine day. He knows where to find the birds/animals, is eager to share them, their habits,... More
