I want to sincerely thank Tamas for a wonderful winter's day birdwatching in many sites in the Kiskunsag area. Tamas collected me from my hotel in Budapest and was ready and waiting before our scheduled meet up time of 7:30.

During the day we covered many sites in the Kiskunsag area and Tamas was a safe and diligent driver at all times. He has expert knowledge of the area, built on years of experience and is able to tailor a trip particularly to your needs - even if, like mine, they were quite diverse.

As an example of this I was looking for old woodland species - Black Woodpecker, open grassland - Great Bustard, Rough Legged Buzzard, swamp / reed bed - Penduline Tit, deep water - Red Crested Pochard, Stew etc. Tamas was able to come up with an itinerary that covered all these bases and use his expert local knowledge to add further specialities - Saker Falcon, Imperial Eagle, Red Breasted Goose and so may more. In just one day we counted 76 species including 8 lifers and this was a day of less than 8 hours good light!

Not only did I find Tamas to be a great guide but a kind, friendly and sociable person who could speak with authority on a wide range of topics, from Hungarian ecology to history to sports etc with an amusing brand of humour combined.

I would have no hesitation in strongly recommending a trip and Tamas mentioned that spring time - especially May is particularly strong. If I saw 76 species and 8 lifers out of season, imagine what YOU could achieve in peak season!

My dad and I were treated to expert birding and expert leading by Tamas. He is incredibly kind and incredibly skilled at not only seeing and hearing the birds but showing them to you as well. He even offered sandwiches and cold water. I highly recommend going on a tour with him as you will come away with a new, amazing experience that you will never forget! Thanks for the great bustards!

We were picked up at 7am from our hotel in Budapest by Tamas from where we drove south to the Kiskunsági National Park. We had a wonderful day with Tamas, who's knowledge of the area and its natur is outstanding. We stopped at a local restaurant and had fantastic local food. Truly a day to remember, thank you Tamas!

Tamas was a very down to Earth individual and really easy to get along with . He tailored the trip to our needs by picking up on dropping us off at our Airbnb and even provided cool water, sandwiches and snacks. He clearly has years of experience in birding and his knowledge is excellent. The experience itself surpassed our expectations as Tamas utilised his local knowledge to help us see as many species as possible (which was a lot). Would definitely recommend.

When I contacted Tamas through the Wings of Hungary website, he was very responsive and answered all my questions. He picked my husband and I up at our hotel in Budapest which was very convenient for us, and we were off to explore the Kiskunsagi National Park. We enjoyed this half-day trip and found Tamas to be very knowledgable of the area, a very keen and enthusiastic birder, and an all-around personable guy. Although the forecast called for 100% rain all day, with a bit of luck the rain held off just long enough and Tamas reconfigured the route so we could dodge the impending rain clouds and make the most out of each location within the park. We saw a lot of great birds, and Tamas made sure we got some good looks at them with his spotting scope, which he set up with such speed and skill. We never felt rushed and moved along at a good pace. Being a birding tour guide myself in the USA, I recognize what makes a good guide and would certainly recommend Tamas for your next birding trip!

Superb trip with Tamas exploring Kiskunsag National Park. Tamas' keen eyes and ears along with his expert local knowledge ensured we encountered 101 species in the day including imperial eagle, great bustard, saker falcon, bluethroat, roller, cattle egret, spotted redshank, golden oriole, lesser grey shrike, white-tailed eagle....

I stayed in Kecskemet, a lovely town with the added advantage of being within 30 minutes of the park.

I only discovered the ‘Wings of Hungary’ website earlier this year, so by that time the two spring group tours were full. So, I contacted Tamas Vass and he was able to offer me two days guided birding in June. Tamas met me at the airport and took me to my hotel in Kecskemet, which is ideally situated for visits to the Kiskunsag Nemzeti National Park. The following day we went to the Pusztszer area in the south of the Park and spent several hours at a network of fishponds. En route we saw numerous shrikes, Rollers and Bee-eaters. The fishponds were alive with birds, including herons, terns, waders and other wetland species. We saw or heard 113 species including both my main target species – Eastern Imperial Eagle and Saker. The next day we visited the Upper Kiskunsag NP area, where there were more fishponds as well as vast expanses of open steppe grassland. It was great to see so many wildflowers in the unspoilt countryside and we saw Ground Squirrels, Great Bustards and many species of birds of prey.
Tomas spoke very good English and was extremely knowledgeable about the environment and birdlife in Hungary. His careful planning made the two-day birding trip extremely enjoyable and enabled me to experience first-hand the richness of birdlife. I found him very friendly and professional and would not hesitate to recommend booking him as a guide.

We had the most amazing today! Tamas picked us up in Budapest early in the day and returned us around 5pm. We went to the National Park and saw 83 species of birds! 33 of these were life birds! We saw many great bustards, cuckoos, pygmy cormorant, short-toed snake eagle, imperial eagle, white-tailed eagle, red-footed falcon, bearded reedling, several species of warblers, bluethroat, tawny pipit and many many more! Tamas is extremely knowledgable both with sound ID and visual ID. His perfect english and friendly personality made for an epic day! We would highly recommend Wings of Hungary!! Thank you Tamas
