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 2017 - 2019 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.

We are now on Facebook and Twitter! Click here to visit and 'like' the Birdtour Asia Facebook page to read and discuss comments or follow our 'Tweets' here. It's a great way to see where we are, what we are currently seeing and getting to know more about us.

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. We were the only tour company with multiple votes to score 100% in every category. The categories covered leaders knowledge and experience, value for money and recommendation. It's great to get such unbiassed feedback, and we can assure you that we will continue to strive even further to give you the best holiday birding experience in such a wonderful part of the world.

Latest News - 22/05

2017 tours. Due to a recent cancelation we have two spaces on Carlos's late summer West Papua tour, along with a space on James's Tibet and Xinjiang tour in July. Please contact us for further details.

2018 tours. We have a custom tour to Myanmar in April looking for extra participants, tour is designed to see the endemic and near-endemics following our well-trodden route

Also, we now have most of our 2018 itineraries online, with limited spaces already, including a recent cancelation for our Borneo tour. With such high demand we will try and run more tours, otherwise 2019 is already on the horizon! We do still have a handful of spaces available tours.

2017 tours. Our first tour reports of the year are now available, with the latest uploads including James's recently completed Eastern Himalaya tour, Dave's two custom Malaysia tours and Pete & Mark's Philippine custom tours. With Mike's recently finished Borneo tour and Java & Sumatra tours, there will be plenty more to follow in late May.

Exchange rates. Since the 'Brexit' vote in June 2016 the value of Sterling has decreased significantly, and, unfortunately, there is no sign that it is likely to recover in the near future. Since most of our tours are paid for and costed in US Dollars, this will have an impact on the Sterling cost of tours. We will do our best to absorb some of the increase but cost increase are nevertheless inevitable for those paying in Sterling and Exchange Rate Supplements will be added at the time of balance payment based on current exchange rates at that time. We will of course keep any increases as low as possible and our prices still offer excellent value for money compared to the post-brexit costs of other companies.
