My whole experience was truly excellent. Before booking my tours I read the reviews online and am pleased to report that the experience is just as great as everyone says that it is! Being a younger single woman traveling in a foreign country I had multiple barriers to contend with. For one, I didn’t have the largest budget. Thankfully The Birding In Greece Team was willing to work with me so that I could afford to bird two full days which I deeply appreciated. Secondly, I don’t speak any Greek! Fortunately my guide Nikos spoke English very well in my opinion and we were able to communicate comfortably. He was incredibly respectful and considerate towards me which meant a lot. I genuinely felt very safe and at ease with him. We saw so many species it feels like a dream now after the fact. I had sent him a list of 52 species that I wanted to see during my time in Greece. When he picked me up around 7:30am our first morning birding, the race was on! Over the course of two days we ended up seeing all of the species on my list plus many more. I could not have been more thrilled or satisfied. I definitely recommend Birding In Greece and would be honored to tour with them again in the future.

What a wonderful day he had birding in Athens with Nikos Probonas! We enjoyed seeing the greater Athens area and especially enjoyed our time with him at Schinias National Park.

Nikos was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about birds, and he helped us keep our list. He helped us see a Hoopoe (top of our list), and we were lucky enough to see a Roller in Schinias!

We plan on doing a three day trip with him hopefully next year as we so enjoyed our time with him!

The booking process was easy and the price for our day was very fair (I would pay more!).

My family and I spent a day birding in and around Athens with Nikos. We have younger children so we weren't sure how the kids would do, but Nikos was very patient, giving us plenty of time to take turns watching the birds at each location while the kids played. Nikos is very knowledgeable in the birds of Greece and in excellent locations to see them. We did our birding tour in late February, and identified 51 birds, many of which were new for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. It was an experience we couldn't have had without Nikos' knowledge of the Athens area and its birds.

This was an extraordinary experience - really a lot of fun birding with Antony Tsaknakis. Great knowledge of birds and where to find them plus unbelievable enthusiasm and tenacity, and patience and generosity. He was very adaptable and flexible and we got MANY good photos and some really great ones. Everything worked out just as he said it would; totally reliable and trustworthy.

Christos took us on a great tour in the center of Athens. We are a father and a son (11 years old), where the son is the avid birder and the father can't tell a pigeon from a dove. But even I was getting into it. We saw some history of Athens and alot more birds than I ever thought possible in the centre of a big city. Christos set a good pace, listened to what we were interested in (scenic sites for the papa and birds never seen before by the son) and made sure he delivered. Highly recommended.

Chris and Antonis were the perfect choice for me and my sister when we came to Greece. We told them where we were going to be, how much time we had, the dates we were available, and what kinds of birds we wanted to see. My sister and I love raptors, and we were happy seeing every one of the lifebirds we got to see. Some highlights were Griffin Vulture, Redbacked Shrike, Sardinian Warbler, Kentish Plover, and so many more. This was the best birding experience I have ever had, because Chris and Antony knew where to take us, what time to get there, and how to get us in position for the best view and photographs. I would highly recommend them to anyone anywhere in the world. The birding experience was seamless and we genuinely had a great time with them. Donna Kayne Owen, Cleveland, Ohio.

I did a one-day tour around Athens with Nikos and Antonis, who were both great company and top notch birders. We recorded nearly 70 species, in a variety of habitats, despite my visit not coinciding with the best season for birding. I certainly recommend Birding in Greece, for their friendly and professional attitude, as well as their extensive knowledge and experience as birders.

We spent a day with Antonis birding around Athens. He is an excellent birder and was also able to incorporate photography into our experience. He took us to four different habitats and we saw a wide variety of birds. It was very interesting to see birds that are not here in the US.
Antonis also gave us some good tips for places we were going later in our trip - and they were very helpful.
If you are interested in photography along with your birding we would highly recommend Antonis.

What a wonderful time we had in Lesvos island!! One of the most beautiful islands of the Aegean Sea with a wide and interesting variety of birds! Many many thanks to Chris Vlachos and Birding in Greece who has given us the opportunity to photograph many wonderful birds and other creatures that we didn't know they existed in Greece! Lesvos!! The whole trip was very well organised, starting from the tips about the equipment, the choice of the hotels, the right places to visit in order to meet the birds! Chris is a great teacher to all of us the amateur wildlife photographers!! With his guidance, skills and rich experience he is constantly giving us the opportunity to visit so many beautiful places and learn about the Greek fauna!! A highly recommended experience with Chris!!!

In one sentence:
Chris Vlachos and the entire birding team are very professionals!

Our trip (my friend Nikos and myself) to lake Kerkini (4 days by the end of October) has been perfectly planed.
The organization of this trip was so good, that we enjoy the photographic tour in lake Kerkini and the surroundings every single moment!!!
Chris Vlachos accompanied us as our guide. He is not only best familiar with the Kerkini lake but also his photographic skills gave us the opportunity to get our photos to a very high level. His superb advising and his engagement to show us how to get the best possible shots out of the place, amazed us!

The Lake Kerkini is a magnificent place in Europe to photograph BIRDS.

We thank Chris Vlachos and the Birding Team for their support and we will be happy to book the next photographic trip again with you guys

We highly recommend Birding in Greece for your activities!
