Testimonial Kim and Sean, UK:
"Rolf guided us around
Prenzlau / Furstenberg. It was a truly remarkable and memorable day for us. We both found Rolf to be a most charming and knowledgeable guide. Rolf was energetic and conscientious in making sure that we had the day we wanted and made sure that we saw lots of birds.
In fact, we saw 16 species that we had never seen before at all, and many others that we had seen only once or twice in the UK. I don't know what was best, the Lesser Spotted Eagle, or the Storks, or the Icterine Warblers, or the Black Kites, or the Red Necked Grebes, or ... the list goes on. For us, it was amazing to be surrounded by Cuckoos, calling and flying; and to see Cranes drifting across the sky. And to be sat having lunch watching a Serin on the roof-top just across the road; and to see an Eagle mobbed by a Crow that looked tiny by comparison ... I could go on. We had a day full of fantastic encounters with birds, all in a lovely setting.
That we had such a fantastic day is down to Rolf, who was a fantastic guide. We can't imagine a more helpful, friendly, guide."
