Some birdwatchers prefer to watch birds not in large group but individually. This way allows to pay attention to special species, and means apportunity to customise the itinerary. We offer the tours for 1-2 customers at the reasonable cost. Our customers are mostly middle-age (40-60 years) birdwatchers who prefer to take photos of birds.
