Welcome to Tadorna Tours, a birding and wildlife 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 as well as time for photography. Both of our guides are keen birdwatchers with experience of birding in remote places all across the British Isles and further afield, as well as insight into working on conservation projects.
What makes us different? We only visit locations that we love and have vast experience of birding, allowing us to share our passion and enthusiasm for the birds and wildlife we’ll encounter. Experienced in the field, we have extensive know-how of working with experienced tour individuals and conservation organisations. Another huge benefit of booking with us, we are qualified in SEN and Additional Needs and offer specialised wildlife days to suit these requirements; just look for the SEN on tours.
We are fully covered with Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance as well as being fully DBS Certified.
