What our clients say
2016 some clients feedback
Hi Tang Jun,I just wanted to say thank you so much again for all the amazing hard work you did for us in Qinghai and Tibet. It was such a great trip. Here are some pictures that I promised to send. Outlook only allows 25MB of attachments, so I could only send 3 pictures here. If you want to see more, just tell me and I'll send some others in separate emails. Thanks again so much for everything and I hope you're getting some time to relax!Take it easy,Todd

Hi Tang Jun,mostly I just want to say again how marvelous our two trips were this summer.  I wanted to see pheasants and you found them all.  And of course so much more.  I still can't believe the lynx!  The only bad part was realizing that I will probably never see you again., and I had started thinking of  you as just another one of my family.  Thank you so much for everything, and may you have the very best of luck in the future.Very best regards,Elaine

Hi Tang Jun,It had been my intention to contact you when I returned home to say thank you for a great tour,.Hope you are now at home with your family and hope you had a good tour with Zoothera. Have a good Christmas and hopefully see you at next year's Birdfair.Stuart.

Hi Tang Jun,have just got home from a fantastic winter tour. We had a lovely group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Steven An was very good and everyone really got along with him very well. The birding was great and I think it was a good move to stay in the town at Emei Feng other than on top of the mountain. Had some great sightings, but the cranes were the most popular with the group, as well as Elliot's Pheasant - had a male feeding out in the open for 10 minutes and we saw 7 Elliot's Pheasants in total one morning. We even found a Grey-sided Thrush at Nanhui on the last day, plus 30+ Baikal Teals. The day at Nanhui was really good.Nick

Dear Tang Jun Thank you for sending the photographs, and thank you also for a wonderful tour.  I really enjoyed it so much, and finding the Spoon-billed Sandpiper at the end was just fantastic.  I am sorry that our farewell was so rushed, and I did not have time to tell you how much I appreciated your help getting the birds I had not seen before and getting better views of ones I had seen before, I was very happy with our results.I hope that your current tour is going well, and that you do not have many fussy eaters in the group!See you at the Birdfair next year.Best wishes,Sonia

Hi Tang Jun,I hope that all is well with you and your family. I guess that it is freezing cold in Sichuan at present.  A beautiful summer day here - 25⁰ with a light sea breeze. Not a freezing cold wind like we had in China!Since our trip to China, I have mainly birded around Sydney with a couple of short trips to the country. I did get a new bird for my Australian list – White-rumped Sandpiper. It is only the second record for Australia. It comes from eastern North America and normally winters in South America.
I am thinking of a longer trip covering both Sichuan and Yunnan for the future. I realise that it will be a long trip but we would want to see as many as the key birds as possible. I’m looking to you for guidance on this.All the best to you and your family,Allan

Hi, Tang Jun! The Balangshan tour in this July was a great experience for all of us. Our first visit to China was totally satisfied including wonderful meal. Most impressive dish was needless to say, extremely hot Chinjao Rosu “Fire-throat” for Koh, haha.Mr. Liu was an excellent driver and Robbi the perfect guide gave us very memorable and exciting days in Sichuan. We were very lucky with the weather, meaning we were able to get good looks at many of the wanted species.For us, Japanese nature-lover, there’s special feeling for Himalayas. Japan archipelago was connected with Eurasian continent by land in the past, so plenty of species are related to China. When it comes to birds, many rare species recorded in Japan breeds in Sichuan. For example, Blue-fronted Redstart, Rosy Pipit, Greenish Warbler and Yellow-streaked Warbler. Balangshan is surely the best and nearest site for watching these birds from Japan!In addition, there is such an interesting place for flower-lover. July is best for various kinds of alpine flowers. Most impressive scene in this trip was male Grandala hopping in splendid flower garden. It was arguably bird of the trip.I look forward to using China Bird Tour again when I go birding in China, and will recommend it to others planning trips to China.Many thanks again and best wishes,Yutaka, Koh and Satoshi

Dear Tang Jun,Do you want to reserve dates for us for a Tibet trip in June 2017?We'd like to do a Tibet trip and take the train, and also spend a day or two doing cultural stuff around Lhasa.We just got a letter from Clyde and Joelle.   They really enjoyed their trip with you this spring.Thanks,   Dana

Hi Tang Jun,Thank you for your email and photo, and apologies for the delay in replying but your email was spammed again by my service provider, and I only found it today! The trip was rather successfull and Steven was a great guide. Very helpful and knowledgeable. We had great views of Reeves's Pheasant at one of the hides! Elliot's was quite tricky to find, and we only got decent views on our last morning. We had to spent a bit too much time to look for the Elliot's and consequently missed some other birds like Moustached Laughingthrush. Also difficulties with authorities at Shanyutan, and only managed to see the Chinese Crested Tern in flight. This place seems to become quite difficult to visit for foreigners, or maybe we were just unlucky. Best wishes,Hannu

Dear Mr Tang Jun,I have returned safety to Singapore on 20  Dec.  Thank you for an enjoyable tours and your company, and the many interesting conversations.Thank you for the photos.Maybe, at some other suitable time, we may meet again to look for pheasants.Regards,Leng Seow

HI Tang Jun,Ok great – many thanks. And Merry Christmas to you and your family. It was nice to see you last month – it really was a very good trip. Nick

Hi Tang Jun,Have been meaning to email you and say thanks for organising the SE China and Sichuan tours this year. The SE China tour was a great success and everyone was so very happy at the end of the tour. I would like to thank Steven for his guiding – he really was very good and pleasant company, so please pass on my thanks to him. I’m looking forward to doing the winter tour next year with him.
As for Sichuan, I think this was our best tour ever, although I keep saying that after every tour we do there! Jay was brilliant and a very good birder and guide and I think we worked well together, so please pass on my thanks to him as well. For next years Sichuan tour I have 9 confirmed pax already – so good news.
Will keep you posted on the winter tour, but probably have 7 pax so far – just waiting on confirmation on these…
Anyway, hope you and your family are doing well.  Best wishes,Nick

Hi Tang Jun,Wow that's a great photo! Yes I reach home safely at 0500. I also realised that Dark-breasted Rosefinch is a new bird for me, so I got 7 new birds for this trip. Thanks for hosting me. Plain-backed Thrush would be new also, for next year! Let me know if you photograph that Mountain Finch in July. Have a good tour and best wishes to the family.Cheers,Albert

Hi Tang!Hope everything is just fine!Many thanks for good Company, good guiding and good arranging on ourtour. We are all very pleased.Many fine memories to sort out now - and pictures to look at.
We'll keep in contact!Wish you all the best,Curre

Hi Tang Jun,Back in the UK now after another good China trip.It was great to meet you again after so long and I am very pleased that you have become a keen birder. Also thank you for help with up to date info.Please keep me informed of any news on your proposed Snow Leopard trip next year.Kind regards,Dave  

Dear Tang Jun, Thanks, once again, for all the work you did on making the Sichuan trip  a wonderful birding experience!    I think it was one of the best trips  I've every been on---  good birds, delicious food, interesting places  and beautiful scenery.I think we will have to plan a Tibet trip, perhaps in late June/July of  2017. I think I could get a group of 8 people together.Sincerely, Dana

Tang,The trip was really successful. We managed to get good views of most of our targets. Mr. Liu was an excellent driver, and your company did an excellent job organizing the trip. We did not have any problems during the trip.I look forward to using your company again when I go birding in China, and I will recommend it to others planning trips to China.Thank you,Nick

Dear Tang Jun,Very many thanks for all your help with our trip. We had a great time in Fujian and saw many good birds. Even though the Chinese Crested Terns failed to show up, our morning on the estuary was fine with many crested terns and good waders. Everything worked very well and Steven An is an excellent guide - very friendly and caring as well as knowledgable. He gave us a very happy and memorable week in Fujian.Many thanks also for arranging Foping permits for us. The Blackthroats behaved and we all enjoyed our visit there as well as to Sichuan. I will happily recommend China Bird Tour for their excellent service to anyone wishing to visit and hope that it is not too long before I am birding in China with you again.Many thanks again and Best wishes Richard

Hi Tang Jun,Sorry it's taken a while to get round to writing this, but we would like to thank you for organizing a thoroughly enjoyable and successful trip. We were extremely lucky with the weather, especially on our first day at Balangshan, and only suffered light rain on our final morning, meaning we were able to get good looks at many of the major species. In total, we rattled up 10 pheasant/partridge species, including 3 Chinese Monals above the tunnel, a male Temminck's Tragopan that walked across the road and excellent views of Snow Partridge and Tibetan Snowcock near the pass. We did pretty well with the warblers too, with species of 10 Phylloscopus, 2 each of Seicercus, Cettia and Bradypterus, whilst an amazing male Firethroat on Erlangshan was arguably bird of the trip - it kept Oscar & I entertained for over an hour as it sang in a tree above our heads. In all, we managed a total of more than 160 species.
Please pass on our thanks to Mr Liu who was an excellent host and driver, and very accommodating to our wishes. He looked after us very well and was extremely patient with our numerous requests to stop to look at things, even during the very long drive to Rilong.
Many thanks once again and I (Mark, at least) hope to return to China soon and will be in touch when we do.With our very best regards,Mark, Oscar & Steve
