From one happy traveler:
"I want you to know what a truly amazing trip I had in Spain. Once I finally arrived there's no way I could have imagined what a wonderful experience it would be. The trip was like a master class in birding, natural history, Spanish history, & cuisine. And Cristian is tremendous! From his birding skills to his incredible driving, to his vast knowledge of his country, he is a veritable fount of information. He's funny and smart and professional. Thanks for hanging in there as I vacillated on my trip. Best birding trip ever!" Alex
