My wife and I spent more than a full day with José exploring the woodland and marshes of Donana and we could not have had a better or more knowledgable guide. Donana is such a large reserve that without guidance we would not have known where to begin or even to navigate the maze of roads and tracks to get to the best sites. In three days we recorded 103 birds, 26 of which were totally new to my wife and me. The lynx though was elusive, as was the Spanish Imperial Eagle but rarities such as the white headed duck and the marbled teal more than made up for those disappointments.
If you are a serious birder and wish to get the best out of a visit to this important reserve then look no further, you could not do better than book the services of Discovering Donana.
Jose Antonio nos acompañó durante largo medio día (un 15 de abril de 2017), que a la vez se hizo muy corto. Su conocimiento del parque y más profundamente de las aves que se pueden observar (nuestro principal objetivo en Doñana) es increíble. ¡¡Sabe un montón!! Muy buena experiencia ¡Gracias!
José guided us together with a Dutch couple of ornithologists through the inner parts of the Doñana Park. Due to his thorough knowledge of the park and its fauna we could admire a lot of species. José is a guide who can pass valuable information in a funny way. It was an enjoyable tour!
We experienced a coto donana at its best moment. It had been raining a lot and the fully flooded wetlands were covered with flowers. Discovering the reserve and its birds with José was great !
Myself, my wife and two friends booked a private tour of the Donana National Park with Jose. We had a Range Rover 4X4 and travelled in good comfort. Jose knowledge of the Park and its wildlife was exceptional, our 5 hour tour went so quickly and gave us a taste of the area and a certain wish to return.
We highly recommend Jose's private tour to anyone visiting Donana.
We had a really enjoyable morning tour with José. It was the first time we had done something like this - I am a reasonably keen birder, but my wife enjoys the outdoors rather than spending too long on the birds, but we both felt we got a huge amount out of our tour. We learnt lots about the area and the birds and José's quick and confident identification of species from appearance and song, and his explanations of key points, were very informative and I learned a lot. I would have managed some of this myself, but by no means all, so we got great added value from our visit. Thank you, José, we hope to be back!
We had an amazing day in Donana with Jose a few years back and this trip was just as impressive. Dawn to dusk. 93 species. His knowledge of the whole area and the wildlife is second to none - what is where, what time to be there (and where to get good food and coffee) etc. A great time of year to visit - green, lots of water and full of winter, migrant and resident birds. Fantastic experience - we will be back for more...
Our day of birding exceeded our expectation. Jose spoke fluent English and provided a wealth of background knowledge about the park and the status of Spanish conservation efforts. The equipment provided was excellent. We saw 78 different birds, 68 of which were new to us. Our lunch stop was great and provided unexpected insight into Spanish life. What an interesting day!
We highlyrecommend this tour company.
Mi marido y yo visitamos Doñana en febrero en una visita en un 4x4 con Sonia. La visita fue increíble. Solo para nosotros y otra pareja. Sonia es divertida, amena y cariñosa, hizo la visita en inglés, y tradujo todos los nombres de aves en español para mí. La visita fue exhaustiva y aprendimos muchísimo. Vimos muchísima aves, cernícalos, grullas, flamencos, petirrojos y ruiseñores entre otros, pero lo mejor es que ¡vimos un lince cazando una liebre! Lo pasamos genial y desde luego, es una visita muy recomendable. Muchas gracias por todo.
We visited the Donana Park on a chilly day in January. Our guide, Javier did a great job sharing his knowledge and passion for the preservation of the land, animals and history of the park. We saw huge herds of deer, foxes on the hunt, rare birds, beautiful landscapes and so much more. It was our first time visiting Spain and our tour of Danana Park was truly one of the highlights.
