      Had a marvelous half day birding the Llobregat delta with Carles in April 2017 - just outside BCN, perfect for the birder vacationing with non-birding family as I was. Carles is a superb and highly efficient guide.

      Carles showed up outside my door on time and proceeded to show me a great many birds. Our day list topped 100! Communication was excellent both beforehand and in follow-through. Highly recommended.

      Highly recommended! Carles Oliver is an expert birder, professional, personable, and exceptionally patient. He picked us up very early at our hotel in Barcelona and we explored the steppes and marshes starting with a Gryphon Vulture sunning himself in a field and culminating in sightings of Little Bustard, a life bird. A great day!

      We had a wonderful morning birding around Barcelona with Carles. He knew the sites perfectly and found us many new birds on our first trip to Spain. He even waited for us outside our hotel for a long time when we overslept having arrived late the night before! Highly recommended.
