Sunbird has arranged private tours around the world — from one day to more than 30 days and for groups of one to 20 persons from bird clubs, universities, audubon societies and collections of friends. If travelling when and where you want, alone or in a company of your own choosing, is appealing, a private tour may make sense for you.
Sunbird can organize private tours over any itinerary we’ve operated in the last few years. In certain cases, with local help, we’ve run successful private tours using itineraries with which we were largely unfamiliar.
As a general rule, planning for private tours of more than a few days should begin as early as possible. Sunbird leaders’ schedules for any given year are normally set six to nine months before the start of the year. Private tours organized before that time normally will not encounter as many date restrictions as will those commenced after Sunbird leaders’ schedules are set.
When Sunbird organizes a private tour, a senior Sunbird leader must accompany the group. Large groups often ask for the services of a single Sunbird leader and provide a second (and sometimes third…) leader themselves, a significant economy.
As a rule of thumb, private tours for groups of seven or more can often be offered for less than the same tour as it appears in our website. Private tours for larger or smaller groups will normally be less or more expensive respectively.
