Welcome to Birdtour Asia

Birdtour Asia are specialists in Asian birding tours, offering organised and tailor-made travel throughout the region.

Our tours are planned to optimise the birding opportunities at each site visited concentrating on the most enigmatic, localised and hard to find species. By allowing time for comprehensive coverage we will give ourselves the best realistic chance of locating these speciality birds of the region.

We aim to offer the best possible bird-tour experience through a combination of small group sizes, experienced and knowledgeable leaders, a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and of course some of the finest birding in the world. All of our leaders have extensive experience of the birds of the region and have spent prolonged periods exploring all the tour destinations.

Please visit our tours page for our 2018 - 2020 scheduled departures or contact us via e-mail or telephone if you would like us to organise one of our popular custom tours or for further information about any of our services.

Thank you to all our tour participants who took part in the Birdwatch magazine online survey regarding readers experiences with bird tour companies. See Birdwatch February 2010.
