Our guide was very passionate about everything to do with the forest and very informative about the Bison. This will remain a treasured highlight of our trip. Thank you.

We did the Heart of Biolowiza tour with Zenen our guide. This is how a forest should be, untouched by human hands, the last (unfortunately) real forest in Europe. Zenen guided us for 4 hours through this amazing forest, where we experienced the forest in all its phases. Zenen also enlightened us with nice facts and details in English, and there were some jokes in between. His spoken English was sufficient but not all of our questions came through.

I don't know where to start! Thank you Arek! Everything, from the price, communication, the tour was absolutly perfect! And we are a tough crowd to please.. if you are really interested in nature, plants, birds, fungy, wildlife or history you can ask arek. He is a biologist with decades of experience and a true love for bialowieza. This is not your regular guide with basic information but an enclopedia of information! Recognizing birdsounds, insects, anything that you cross on your way. We are verry curious and inquisative souls and were completly satisfied after the tour. I can recomend this to anybody trying to make a choice wich guide to choose! And as a litle extra for people from the netherlands, arek has memorized most species of birds, trees and plants in dutch!

Pygmy Owl Tours helped us choose from a range of tours and come up with an itinerary that gave the best chance to see what we most wanted to see. We took three tours: Pygmy owls and bison with Mateusz and Strict Forest Reserve with Mikhail. Both men are great ambassadors for the Bialowieza Forest and speak English fluently. They were well equipped including a telescope which provided great viewing. We had an amazing time wildlife watching with them. We suggest that the company looks to buy a vehicle as most visitors will not want to provide their own car. We recommend this company to all nature lovers from beginner to expert.

It was 3.10 am and we were going to safari after European bison. Mateusz, the guide from Pygmy Owl Nature Tours met us in the hotel lobby and we were off surfing the highways and byways of Białowieza in search of bison at their breakfast buffet. Mateusz was excellent and interesting with such a well of knowledge. And for us who barely understand the Polish language (our loss), Mateusz speaks excellent English. We did find bison who found their breakfast in a misty early morning meadow. It was an unforgettable experience. I hope I can make it back for a 'birding' tour with Mateusz!! This is the best that Białowieza has to offer now that you can't drive into the park anymore on your own.
