The leader was very knowlegable. Our wildife highlights were seeing Arctic & great skuas in breeding habitat, white-tailed eagle and black-throated divers.

Peter W went to UK, Europe in July 2018

Organisation on the tour was faultless. Achieving sight and/or sound of 179 species cannot be anything but excellent. The sighting of Ural owl was exceptional.

Keith R went to Hungary, Europe in May 2018

One of the best overseas trips I have been on, and I’ve done a few with TN now. The leader Abelardo was outstanding; his enthusiasm and excitement at seeing birds was infectious.
