Texas: Rio Grande Valley Winter Birding Break Tour Pricing
2021 Trip Pricing: $1,790 US Dollars*, or £1,310 GBP* for 6 Days and 5 Nights
Tour package includes all lodging, meals* and access fees to reserves, parks and other birding sites.
Premier Bird Guide: All of our tours use the services on an excellent bird guide, often a well-recognized expert on birding in this area.
Top-Rated Preparation Services: We 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:
o Local ground transport is included. This includes a van throughout the trip. o For the first night of the trip, we use a hotel that provides free airport transfer. 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 a free transport service.
Acre for Bird Conservation: As part of our efforts to support bird conservation, we purchase in the name of most of our customers an acre (and sometimes as many as 200 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 fun way to support bird conservation around the world. For our latest fiscal year, we saved an average of 80 acres for each booking.
Small Group Pricing: All the prices mentioned above are for tour groups of seven or eight participants. We are happy to provide pricing for private groups with fewer than seven participants.
*Pricing Notes and More Details:
US Dollar Pricing: The price is fixed in USD, and the price in GBP should remain about the same. We do not expect price changes for either of these currencies in 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 or 8 participants, and pricing is based upon this group size.

We are often able to find a roommate for those wanting to share a room with a person of the same sex.
