I run both private guided day trips and wildlife holidays for the Travelling Naturalist and other tour companies.


Private trips can be booked on most weekdays. These can be customised to your own interests.


In addition I run a regular weekly wildlife day-trip on Tuesdays. The trip includes the Dordogne Valley and the Plateau de Faux (Black-winged Kite etc.) in the summer months. In winter the trip covers the Vézère Valley around Les Eyzies (Wallcreeper etc.).


Prices (2020) 60 euros per person (three persons or more), 75 euros per person (two persons) and 120 euros (one person) which includes a day's guiding (c. 9am - 5pm), transport and insurance. Normally we have a light lunch in a local restaurant which costs around 12-15 euros, although it is possible to bring your own picnics (but not for the regular Tuesday trip).


I am currently working with Travelling Naturalist, leading wildlife holidays in Dordogne: winter birds, spring birds, butterflies, orchids & general wildlife. For full details please visit their websites e.g. Travelling Naturalist here.
