California Birding: Resident Specialties and Fall Migrants 10 Days Tour Pricing

2023 Pricing: $2,990 US Dollars, or £2,580 GBP* for 10 Days and 9 Nights



  • Tour package includes all lodging, some meals* (see below), and access fees to reserves, parks, and other birding sites.

  • Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services of an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area. 

  • Top-Rated Preparation ServicesWe support your preparation for the trip. We provide information on the birds you will see and all the travel details, including all logistic details (arrival plans, trip itinerary, lodging details, and more), information on entry into the United States (if applicable), and information on travel health issues, packing information and more. Most of our clients comment that our Trip Participation Guide is the best they have ever seen.

  • Transport and Airport Transfers:

    • Local ground transport is included. This includes a van throughout the trip.

    • The tour price also includes the pelagic birding tour price as well, by boat.

    • For the first night of the trip, we use a hotel that provides free airport transfers. However, in many cases, we have the trip guide pick you up at the airport upon arrival. 

    • We arrange for a transfer back to the airport at the end of the trip, or to a hotel that will provide you with free transport service.                                                                                  

  • Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of customers (for each booking) at least one acre (but averaging between three and four acres) of wilderness to support bird conservation. As our trip prices are often 20% (and often even a better deal) less than our competition, this does not really cost you more and it is a great way to support bird conservation around the world.

  • Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven to ten participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than five participants.


*Pricing Notes and More Details:


  • US Dollar Pricing: The price is fixed in US Dollars (USD).

  • British Pound* Pricing: Our 2021 price estimates are mostly based on US Dollars; so, our GBP/British Pound pricing is based upon an exchange rate of 1.25 US Dollars per British Pound for both 2020 updates and 2021. I suspect most bookings these days (early May 2020) will be for 2021 anyway. The true exchange rate as of May 11, 2020, was 1.25 USD on the British Pound.  We will charge you the actual transaction rate here, but please note that we work to minimize transaction costs here. Using Transferwise, we usually pay under one-half a percent (and sometimes less) on the actual exchange. Please contact us anytime about questions here and/or just google “Transferwise USD to GBP”. Note: I just did an example on a 1000 USD transfer with Transferwise (market versus Transferwise cost), and the true cost was only 1 cent (May 11, 2020).

  • Bank Fees: We do not charge bank fees for wire transfers for clients paying into our accounts in the United States, the United Kingdom, and/or Canada.

  • Note on Meal Inclusion: Meals include breakfast as provided by the hotels each day following Day 1 of the trip. 

  • Note on Beverage Inclusion: Each day, we provide water for refilling your personal bottles during the birding day. 

  • Group Size: We anticipate a group of 7 to 10 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size.


Optional Costs for Booking the Trip:


Single Room Supplement: The single supplement for this trip is $780 USD (or £670). This is the price we charge for the additional cost of anyone not sharing a room with another birder (and/or a spouse). If you want a single room, please let us know.  We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room with a person of the same sex.


Tipping for Meals/Lodging: Gratuities for drivers, hotel staff, and restaurant staff are not included in the pricing for this tour.

  • You will need to pay for any flight costs involved in this trip.
