Very interesting trip with a good diversity of habitat and landscape. The hotels were both excellent, the Ammersee extremely good with more birds on this lake.

Mary E went to Germany, Europe in June 2015

My most memorable Travelling Naturalist trip ever. It had everything: spectacular birds, coral reefs to snorkel, sun, sea and warmth.

Penny B went to Trinidad & Tobago, Latin America in January 2015

I am so very grateful to you for making a dream come true – I am full of whale love. The swim with the whale sharks was not only very unexpected but mind blowing.
