Flying-V Tours

Flying-V Tours offers a variety of guided tours in birding hotspots across the United States and internationally. Birders and nature enthusiasts of all levels of experience are welcome, with tours ranging from short duration, slow-paced walks to more strenuous hikes. Some trips will focus on intensive birding, while other excursions will be more relaxed depending on the surveyed interest. While some tours are focused primarily on bird-identification, other may introduce the geological, botanical, and ecological qualities of a particular location. Local guides will be utilized for some daily trips, but the costs are kept to a minimum by direct bookings and a no-frills style of tour. New tours and locations will be considered and advertised to evaluate interest if the proposed tour meets Flying-V's feasibility requirements.
