Our birding tours take you from being in the middle of somewhere often to the outer reaches of nowhere and back again.
The Urban Birder Tours (TUB Tours) differ from other birding and wildlife tours because we always include an urban element. Despite urban birding being in our blood we are not shy to wander into the middle of rural idylls in search of wildlife. We always try to choose destinations that are overlooked, unusual and unexpectedly rich in birding. And even with the more familiar locations, we always try to find the sites that others don’t think of or visit often. The TUB Tours ethos is based on leisurely birding and certainly does not involve rushing around ticking lists and chasing after rarities. We’re into fully enjoying the wildlife that we discover and we also love having fun, soaking up the local culture. There is also a very strong conservation element too. Often within our itineraries will take the time to visit a small organisation carrying out vital work that is often not known about in the wider world. We will certainly always give you the conservational back stories to the places we visit and the wildlife that we encounter.
We at TUB Tours are proud to announce our tie-up with The Inglorious Bustards. The Bustards are a successful tour operator who particularly specialised in trips to The Straits of Gibraltar, Southern Spain, Morocco, Gambia and Senegal. They share the same level of customer care and are passionate about organising tours that revolve around leisurely wildlife watching and having fun. We have joined forces to create an even more special tour experience.
The various TUB Tours offered are all conceived, designed and organised by TUB Tours but not necessarily led by David Lindo. We have a brilliant team of experienced leaders headed by Niki Williamson and Simon Tonkin (The Inglorious Bustards) who are all experienced urban birders that know and love their birds and other wildlife. Our leaders will fully cater for you making sure that you don’t miss a feather, tuft of fur or antennae and will always lead tours at your pace putting your needs first.
Where we use ground agents in other countries we personally put these companies to the test. We visit all the locations and do the tours ourselves to make sure that all is well. Please be assured that we consider your safety, enjoyment and peace of mind as paramount. Terms and conditions, travel insurance advice and healthcare guidance can be found within the booking details of each tour.
