"The variety of bird and animal life was fabulous, we had wonderful views of many sloths. As usual with Speyside trips a fun group of people and birds and animals to take your breath away. Loved spending a precious 20 minutes on my own watching a sloth climb down a tree to within 12 feet away and then crossing over the path above my head to another tree, just wonderful." Jean Brown, Panama 2023

"The whole experience was amazing, but I've always wanted to see a Pine Marten and thanks to Harris and his expertise and patience a beautiful male Pine Marten appeared it was such an amazing privilege. I can't thank you enough for making this possible. The whole experience was something I will never forget." Jan Gray, Evening Mammal Hide, Aug 2023

"Our guide shared her local knowledge with us throughout the day and was able to take us to places we would not have known to visit ourselves. We really enjoyed spending the day with her. Highlights were the Black throated divers, as I have never seen one before." Heather Easton, Guided Day Out, Aug 2023

"We would like to thank you and the other office based staff for their sterling efforts to make emergency arrangements due to the cancelled flights. We felt confident in the re-arranged travel plans and the care and attention that our brilliant guides, Craig and Simon gave. Their reassuring and competent handling of the situations that arose were commendable. It was a memorable trip for us all and it was credit to Speyside staff that we were able to enjoy each aspect of the activities and destinations promised." Gill and John, Shetland 2023

“What an adventure! To finally get to see the Himalayas and experience Bhutan, a country like no other we have visited. Arriving at Paro Airport was a real adventure, descent through a tight mountainous valley to reach a terminal building like no other I have seen. So beautiful! Immediately we got the sense of Bhutanese national pride which was reinforced when we were met by our guides and driver all resplendent in their national dress. We dove a few yards out of the airport and stopped straight away for Ibisbill! Wow! The scenery, the wildlife, the people, the architecture were just fantastic. Every day was an adventure…. A highlight for me was driving down to the Valley of the Cranes…. It was like reaching Shangri-La, transported back centuries in time. The tranquillity and peace of the place was palpable! I felt very sad and quite emotional at the point of saying goodbye, such a special country that we were privileged to have an opportunity to visit. Thank you Sally, for keeping the faith on this trip and to Tania for all of your work behind the scenes to make it happen. We’re so so grateful.” Maggie and John, Bhutan 2023
