Annika - Birding in Yunnan2017-07-31

We were picked up by Teddy (our guide) and Mr Xi (our driver) at Mangshi, continuing to Ruili, Yinjiang, Nabang, Tengchong, Baihualin and Dali to be dropped off at Kunming. On arrival, I was happy to note that our group of 5 had a bus which had plenty of room for all our stuff. We stayed at hotels which were good and suitable at all locations. Teddy was able to order excellent food everywhere also catering for my special need of chili. Despite the difficult situation in Nabang where the electricity was off and hotels not available by reservation, Teddy was able to arrange everything to our full satisfaction. As we were starting early every morning Teddy arranged for packed breakfasts and snacks.  Despite visiting new sites also Mr Xi and Teddy were well able to take us where we wanted without loss of time. They were also happy to change the itinerary when we asked for it. Even when asked to stop in difficult places and drive on bad roads, Mr Xi raised no problems. We were very please with how flexible both Teddy and Mr Xi also were about waiting for us and taking care of our every request. Teddy was also happy to enlighten about anything we wanted to know more about. Having used many local agents for the arrangements on site in many countries, I know the above points can certainly not be taken for granted. On this trip I was really happy with all the arrangements and have no hesitation in recommending Edward Adventures to other birding groups.
