Tour Bird Quest Company Reviews

Stride Review


Comprehensive birding tours for all levels.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Considerably small group size means you have more time with the guide to learn about spotting different species and how to capture them in a photograph. They focus on quality with their tours - not just the end game of spotting a new species. Tours focus on bringing you to exciting new places for rare animal sightings and stunning landscapes. Birds are the star, but they incorporate finding other incredible wildlife as well.

Who Travels With Them?

Birding enthusiasts interested in a small group experience led by expert guides. They have a generous loyalty program for returning customers as well! All ages will enjoy traveling with them, though birding tends to attract an older crowd. Most of their tours are moderate intensity, with either easy or easy to moderate grade walking requirements and comfortable accommodations and transportation. However, they also offer harder and more extreme tours for the more adventurous souls.

Where Do They Operate?

They have tours around the world, including the polar regions.

Why Travel With Them?

The trip price is largely all inclusive leaving you with the headspace to relax and destress, simply enjoying experience of birdwatching, hiking, photographing, and meeting other birding enthusiasts. Their guides are not only birding experts, they truly help every tour go off without a hitch.

From Birdquest Tours

Why do so many birders choose Birdquest? Why have we become one of the largest and most successful birding tour companies in the world? Here is a simple summary of the features that make us stand out from the crowd:

The world’s most comprehensive repertoire of birding tours, including easy-going bird and wildlife adventures that can be enjoyed by everyone, exciting birding tours to just about every popular birding destination on our planet and even pioneering and sometimes demanding journeys to the world’s last birding frontiers. We have shown our clients and friends more species of birds than any other birding tour company in the world: around 10,000 species using the IOC checklist (and not that far off the total for all other birding tour companies combined!).

Our trips consistently do exceptionally well, owing to the excellence of our guides combined with our carefully thought-out trip logistics and itineraries. Just take a look at our trip reports for confirmation.

Expert, helpful and friendly guides and office staff, with unsurpassed experience, whose aim is to ensure that every participant has a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding tour.

Low group size limits (typically ranging from 6-12, as appropriate for the birding conditions) and, as a direct result, a superior birding experience.

Superlative trip materials, whether it is our tour descriptions, our checklists, our pre-tour information or our tour reports.

Fully inclusive tour prices that offer the highest standard in birding tours. Our tour prices generally include all transportation (including all internal or other flights that are part of the tour itinerary), all accommodations, all meals, all field excursions, all entrance fees, all tips for guides, drivers, boatmen, porters, restaurant staff and others involved in providing local services for our groups, bottled water (where appropriate) and some drinks. (Internal flights and/or tips for guides and drivers are often excluded by other birding tour companies, and these items can often be very costly.)

Price reductions for our regulars through our Birdquest Loyalty Bonus Points scheme.

Financial security. Birdquest is a birding tour operator of very long standing (founded in 1981), with a high level of assets and the financial resources that can provide our clients with peace of mind


The Nature of Birdquest Tours

Birdquest tours are designed specifically for people who want to spend their entire tour birding (and watching other wildlife) while exploring the world’s wild places.
