Tadorna Tours are a birding tour company based in South Wales who specialise in friendly and informative tours. Our tours are catered to both experts and amateurs, with our small group sizes allowing us time to spend watching the birds and enjoying the experience. All of our guides are experienced bird watchers all across the British Isles and further afield. Not only do we cater for those who love birds, and other nature on our tours. We also run a number of Children’s Wild Days and Family Tours.
Not only do Tadorna Tours specialise in bird and wildlife tours, we are also conservationists and conduct a number of projects across South Wales. We have a passion for birds, and a drive to conserve them.
