“Fantastic 2 birdwatching days”
Reviewed by Jari A*******      Finland  20-07-2017
In general, I was happy with both trips. I don't like of surprises what comes to booked deals but, in retrospective, the last morning's change did not affect the birding so much (i.e. I saw what I was expecting to see). My guide Özcan still needs many years of birding to become a legit birding guide. He has a very good eye of finding them so he has hope.

Hopefully I don't sound rude. As I said, I saw amazing birds and wildlife with help of Özcan and could recommend your company as a cost-effective birding organiser.

Man kann den Fischuhu aus nächster Nähe betrachten und sehr schön fotografieren. Der Guide ist super, sehr fachkundig und hilfsbereit. Ich hab noch eine weitere Tour nach Akseki mit ihm gemacht und auch das war fantastisch. Nächstes Jahr werde ich das nochmal machen. Absolute Empfehlung!
