Doug and Judi Helsby (from Tring) - April 2013
We could not find fault with anything about this trip to Extremadura, from the initial booking right through to departure at Madrid.We received a very clear and well thought out itinerary which provided us with a chance of seeing all our target birds. William and Juan Pablo clearly have a deep understanding of where to find the birds throughout Extremadura and at a pace to suit the individual. The various lodgings were excellent and provided us with good local fare.To add a touch of finesse we were exposed to great Spanish hospitality and culture. We will be returning as it was one of the most rewarding birding trips we have been on.
Doug and Judi put together a tremendous DVD of their visit and have kindly allowed us to put it on YouTube. It lasts 15 minutes and gives a good taste of what you are likely to see. Click here.
David and Pam Manger (from Ashford) - April 2013
Now we have had time to reflect on our visit to Extremadura last week, we consider it was one of the most enjoyable weeks we have spent for some time.The number and variety of birds we saw exceeded our expectations, with 21 species we had never seen before. The wildflowers and the colour of the countryside and hillsides were amazing; photographs can never do justice to the real thing. The holiday was made so enjoyable and memorable largely due to the kindness and friendliness shown to us by yourself and Juan Pablo. Both of you offered us insights to your vast knowledge of the local flora and fauna and showed great patience with our own lack of expertise. We thank you for looking after us so well throughout the week, and to Ana as well, for providing the wonderful picnic lunches.

Comme nous le disait chaque jour, Juan-Pablo, ce séjour a été vraiment "Fantastique".Nous nous sommes régalés de randonnées dans de magnifiques paysages et vu de quantité d'oiseaux qui ont comblé notre curiosité. Bon souvenir des repas et de l'extraordinaire pique-nique. Nous en remercions chaleureusement William et Juan-Pablo. Nous avons apprécié L'Estrémadure et ses habitants, qui nous ont marqués au point que nous envisageons, déjà, d'y retourner. Merci une fois encore à William et Juan-Pablo pour leur organisation et leurs compétences.
