Birdwatching/photography at ALL ANDALUCIA HOT SPOTS. Alvaro has in-depth knowledge of all the HOTSPOTS from Guadalhorce to Fuente de Piedra, Donana, Ronda, and Parques Nacionales throughout Andalucia. His recent trip lists are posted on Wild Andalucia.com website. I had a great day with him at Guadalhorce coldest day and drizzling 57 species in 3 hours. Very knowledgeable and knows the places he guides very well species-by-species. Over that past 50 years I’ve birded 32 countries. He is amongst the top 5 guides I have ever birded with. An affable pro!

Hi Mark! It was a pleasure to spend such a productive morning birding with you. You didn't mention that you spotted even more birds than me hehe. Thanks for such a kind review and see you next time!

Our day with Alvaro was our favorite day of our time in Spain. We worked together in advance via email to organize a customized itinerary. Alvaro accommodated exactly what we wanted to do, while also providing ideas to improve the trip (all of which worked out to be excellent suggestions). We were with Alvaro from 10:00 until 20:30 - a long day - and we enjoyed every minute. He was on time, extremely knowledgeable and professional, and so great to spend the day with. Our tour of Ronda was perfect. He took us to several spots that were very quiet with no other tourists around which we absolutely loved. Then, he took us to a vineyard for a tour and lunch (Alvaro picked the vineyard and made all of the necessary arrangements - we literally didn’t have to do a thing). We had the most incredible lunch at the vineyard - Bodegas García Hidalgo. It was the perfect break in the day, the location was beautiful, the couple that owns the vineyard was lovely and the food was superb. Alvaro then took us on a surprise visit to another small lakeside village that was so beautiful - we had never heard of it before and never would have known about it or seen it without him. We enjoyed a great coffee with a stunning view. Alvaro truly went above and beyond, we cannot recommend him enough.

We booked a birding trip with Alvaro to the mouth of the Guadalhorce River. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us to the site. We were all surprised at both the variety and number of birds observed in the short time available to us. It was a magical spot. Alvaro is very knowledgeable and fun. He showed passion for birds and for the natural environment in general. He named the species in both English and Spanish for us. We would go back with another of his trips next time we are in Malaga.

¡Hola Rolando! Un placer guiaros en el Guadalhorce, me sorprendió gratamente la cantidad de aves en plenos verano, de nuevo la suerte estuvo de nuestro lado. Nunca vi tantas gaviotas de Audouín juntas, memorable. ¡Un abrazo y hasta la próxima!

We had an amazing day with Álvaro. He picked us up with, and dropped us off with a smile. He was great company and always had something interesting to say about the wildlife, history or culture of Spain. He was also extremely flexible and helped us to make the best of the limited time we had to see Ronda and the area around it. I highly recommend a tour with him, he will make it a great experience.

I was lucky enough to book a trip with Alvaro with only a couple of days notice .He met us at our hotel and even before we had left the car park had heard and shown us a Firecrest and a Serin . This continued the theme throughout our trip , Alvaro was just so aware we saw at least 50 different birds Booted Eagles , Bonnelis Eagles , Vultures , Storks , Melodious Warblers,Bonelli Warblers ,Little owl, Shrikes .etc etc It was a packed trip and we finally got back to our hotel long after sunset . I couldn’t recommend Alvaro more , he’s charming , fun , knowledgable,has tireless enthusiasm and is relentless in his quest to ensure you see as much as possible . We went to 5 or 6 locations lots of different terrain . The best day Ever , I can’t wait to go again .

Hello Lesley! You're so kind! Thank you. Good that you didn't mention we almost were attacked by a bunch of bats coming out of that cave hehe. I had a great time too, and till now I haven't found so many birds in such a short period of time within the route we made. It'd be a pleasure to see you on board again!
