There are a large number of factors that have to be considered when booking an escorted holiday, especially one that Involves birdwatching.The first must be whether you are dealing with a reputable company and will your money be safe. Ornitholidays is the longest established birding company in the world, having started in 1965. It has grown gradually over this period to offering around 70 tours a year. From 2018 Ornitholidays will be managed by SKUA Nature Group s.n.c., an Italian company that has collaborated with the old Ornitholidays managers for years. SKUA Nature and its partner IGOTravel are perfectly able to guarantee the best safe- guards for your money.
I Go Travel is associated with FIAVET (Italian Federation of Associa- tions of Travel and Tourism Company), the trade association par excellence of Travel Agencies and more generally of tourism busi- nesses. It was founded in February 1961 and it is by far the most well-established representative of Italian Travel Agents.
Our tours range from short breaks in Europe to three week holi- days further afield.To enjoy these holidays to the full, all you need is a love of birds and wildlife and the desire to travel.The vast majority of our holidays are run at a relaxed pace, but each tour has been given gradings to help you make sure you choose the right one. Our tours are escorted, so your leader is a very important ingredi- ent of the holiday.There are many companies offering escorted holidays, but few use full-time leaders. Ornitholidays has a group of professional guides who spend their whole year taking birding par- ties around the world – most of them have led over 150 tours and some over 250.Their job is to make sure you enjoy your holiday and see the wildlife.They are not taking their annual holiday, but are well paid, highly motivated and dedicated leaders who are there for you and you alone.When booking a holiday consider the advan- tages of being led by such a leader – there is no choice really! On many holidays we also employ local guides to accompany the group, providing valuable insight into their country, its history and traditions, as well as its birds and wildlife. What about the cost of the holiday – why are some companies cheaper than others for a similar itinerary? When you compare holidays think about what each company is providing.The accom- modation we use is often the best available, our tour leaders have years of experience and a very deep knowledge on the destina- tions and their fauna.All of them are excellent birders and some are exper t in other groups of animals too. In our team we also have skilled photographers, able to help you getting the best out of your photographic holiday.We have been organising holidays for a long time, so we know the best ground agents to use and the best areas to visit. How many other companies can boast they have been visit- ing many destinations for over 53 years?
