About Birdquest

Founded in 1981 and based in Lancashire, United Kingdom, Birdquest is one of the world's top bird tour companies. Offering more than 100 tours each year, from our extensive repertoire of over 150 tours, we have shown our clients and friends more species of birds worldwide than any other tour company!

We offer exciting, friendly, small-group birding holidays that are guided by a team of leaders whose professionalism, experience and knowledge are unsurpassed, leading to the best birding experience possible: 'The Ultimate in Birding Tours' . Our carefully planned itineraries, small group sizes and the remarkable field expertise of the Birdquest leaders have earned us a reputation for consistently showing our groups more of the bird specialities of the regions we visit than others achieve.

Our tours are specifically designed for those who want a focused birding holiday whilst enjoying the chance to travel to wild and often beautiful parts of the world. Whilst on tour, we will of course also take advantage of opportunities to view mammals and other wildlife and on some tours, visits to cultural sites are a prominent feature too. We cater for all abilities. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, as long as you have a strong desire to spend most of your holiday birding, you will find our tours to your liking. And you can book a Birdquest tour with complete peace of mind as Birdquest is a government licensed and fully bonded tour operator.

Birdquest tours are varied, and as well as offering some very focused birding tours, our programme also features a large number of exciting but easy-going birding and wildlife tours.

This website has full details of all of our forthcoming tours and has a wide selection of our previous trip reports. Take a look and see for yourself what we have to offer and what we have achieved in the last few years! The full contents of our brochures are here, but if you would find it more convenient to look through an actual copy, please request one by clicking on 'Brochure Request'.

If any of our tours interest you, please feel free to email us and check on availability. If you wish, we will hold space for you and send you our brochure, which includes a booking form that you will need to complete if you decide to go ahead. It is also possible to book on-line by filling out and e-mailing in the on-line booking form and we have a printable booking form that can be downloaded as a PDF file and mailed to us.
