PERSONAL TOURS BY MOTORBIKE OR CAR, WHATEVER YOU LIKE.

ALL TOURS ARE INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED TO SUIT YOU, THERE IS NO PACKAGE WITH ME. I AM ALWAYS ABLE TO CHOP AND CHANGE IF YOU DECIDE YOU WOULD LIKE A BIT MORE OF THIS OR A BIT MORE OF THAT.

Five different species of Eagle in a week.  Great back roads and lost villages. Gorges and Castles, Cathedrals and the best food. The birdwatching is just a good excuse for a great time in Northern Spain.  

Castles and Cathedrals.

 

A selection of the best in Spain from Avila to Cordoba or Olite to Zamora. There are so many fabulous places to go and see. 

Battlefields of the Peninsular War.

 

Follow the route of Wellingtons battles from the lines of Torres Vedras to the Arapiles (this photo) the site of the battle of Salamanca.

We had such a great time with you,  It's hard to believe it was only a few days!! Thank you for all you did to make our trip such a pleasure. Its marvelous that we got to visit your home-- a real treat and just a hint of the marvels of Aberystwith.  My guess (knowing how our travel patterns go) is that we might get to Spain near Bilbao  before we get to Wales again.  But we will keep you in the loop-- no question.

Well, all settled back here and off to boring reality in Manchester tomorrow..ugh! It was a great week and life seems quite flat away from our merry routine of seeing and experiencing so much. I thought that without any doubt it was a really excellent week and your knowledge of the area, the history and your considerable Naturalists talents all gave a dimension to it that we would have missed completely on our own. Hasta Luego Charlie.

What I am really writing about is to highly recommend a guide if you organize future trips to Wales (and you should; it is a spectacular area).  My wife met his sister-in-law at an arts conference in Ironbridge, UK last spring and he turned out to be absolutely the best.  His name is Duncan Gough (email above), about 49 yrs. old, is very artistic (theatre set design, etc.) an ornithologist, delightful personality, and very knowledgeable about things Welsh as well as other subjects. An example of his diligence: as an avid motorcyclist, he traversed our entire route in N. Wales 10 days before we arrived to be sure it all made sense and that the logistics would work. This he did without even having met us; believe me, it just guaranteed a trip that went like clockwork. Incidentally, he also does motorcycle trips in N. Spain looking for raptors! Our group of six couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
