Species:

The birds and/or mammals and butterflies named in any tour description are representative of species seen on past tours and pre-tour trips and as such are what is expected to be seen on the tour you have selected. Whilst every effort will be made to ensure you see as many of the species listed, it is not always possible to see everything named in the tour description. This is beyond our control and may be due to environmental and habitat changes, breeding seasons, weather conditions, location availability and as we must not forget these are wild animals and so free to roam. You may of course see additional species to those listed over the course of the tour. No guarantee of species can be offered but you do have the Barcelona Birding Point guarantee of the best possible sites providing the best chance to see these birds in their natural environment.

Tour content:

All tours are the result of a hard coordination with local specialists providing best locations. Barcelona Birding Point will do everything possible to ensure that your tour is as advertised. However in the case of events beyond our control, i.e.: closure of designated visiting area, strikes, adverse weather conditions etc, ., we reserve the right to alter the advertised itinerary to provide the best available alternatives. Any alterations made to the itinerary under these circumstances will, in the opinion of the tour guide, ensure locations as close to the originally planned destinations, thus providing the same opportunities to see the species advertised in the tour description.

Tour Information:

Tours arranged by Barcelona Birding Point do not usually include any difficult or distance walking. However should any tour cover what is considered more than easy or moderate terrain you will be advised at the time of booking. Wherever possible we will provide sites which are on even ground. If you have any physical limitations or health problems please advise us prior to booking. We will always try to accommodate all levels of physical ability and no one will be excluded from any tour if an alternative site/venue can be arranged, unless it is unsafe for them to participate. In order to cater for all levels of birdwatcher we may have to incorporate early starts, late finishes and some travel of more than 150km in any one day. This is, of course, subject to the tour itinerary.

Barcelona Birding Point take great care when planning all itineraries; however mistakes and variations of detail may occur. If any mistake or variation to the advertised tour will make a considerable difference to the content or quality of the service we provide, we will inform you prior to your date of travel. No refund will be considered for mistakes or unavoidable variations that cause little or no difference to the overall tour value.
