    We had two fantastic tours with Annette going from Brisbane to O'Reilly's then later a return tour back to Brisbane. Annette took us to birding hot spots to see birds and nature we would missed without her expertise. She had a lovely morning tea or a tasty glass of wine for us as part of the tour. Great conversation and we did not have to drive. After the tour we received an emailed list of the birds we indentfied and some great pictures of some of the birds we encountered. We highly recommend using this service to see what you would otherwise miss. Thanks for two wonderful tours.😁
