What our clients say
“This week was basically what we came expecting, except that Gui was a better guide than we expected. Gui is very clear, exact and precise in his explanations. This makes him very good for beginning birder, as well as more experienced birders.”
“It was a wonderful holiday despite the weather being less than perfect. The care, love and attention from all at the centre, as well as a very good group of guests, made the experience one to remember. And the number of birds and extreme high quality of guiding was way more than I had expected. Thank you all so much” 9/10
"Wonderful week, with superb wildlife, fantastic food, a great guide, and the unique A Rocha community atmosphere - highly recommended!" 10/10
“Tony and I both agree this was the best birding holiday we had been on and I was surprised I never once felt all birded out !! Down to Gui's professionalism and expertise. People were great and I found the volunteers' and team members enthusiasm rubbed off on us.”,
"An excellent holiday with a superb guide who really knows his birds (thanks Gui). Also fantastic food (thank you Paula) and a great group of very friendly people." 9/10
We greatly enjoyed the Autumn Bird watching week finding nearly all the birds that we had hoped for. Both the number of species and the number of birds in the bigger flocks were quite impressive. We were impressed with the teamwork and community at Cruzinha. The accommodation in the village was magnificent and much beyond what we were expecting with a very pleasant walk to Cruzinha when time allowed. Gui was a most helpful and excellent guid. We would certainly wish to return one year for the Spring birdwatching week with Gui.” 9/10
“This was a wonderfully relaxing week. The birding brilliant. Gui not only a skilled birder but also gentle and courteous. I can't recall a holiday where I've not had to do anything except enjoy the birding/ scenery/ company." 9/10
“This was a great week! I really enjoyed the combination of time out birding and time participating in the life of the centre at Cruzinha. Gui was an excellent guide - probably the best guide I gone birding with. Although this was billed as "relaxed birding", we must have seen virtually every species of bird in the region at that time of year. Thoroughly recommended.”
“We had one of our most enjoyable holidays yet. That even as someone who is not what you would call a serious birder. We loved the country of course and the variety of places which we visited and the variety of birds and flowers we observed were wonderful. It was really good to be living in the hub of Arocha's daily doings and with the family and volunteers and see what is being done to help the ecology of this beautiful area.” 9/10
