  • Had an amazing time here. My wife bought me an experience to take out the birds and it was great. The guide was really knowledgeable and really cared for the birds, owning several himself. Food was included in the package and was really good Would love to head back there soon, although with two young kids now I would be worried as some of the birds were massive!!
  • During a week in London my family ventured out to fly these amazon birds. We all enjoyed our full day experience. The birds were fantastic and the staff was incredibly knowledgeable. The setting made it even better. Definitely the highlight our trip!
