Great Experience My wife and I took the morning tour and it was the highlight of our time in Tarcoles. Randal was very knowledgeable and we saw a wide variety of bird species. I am going back and next time I will take advantage of the camera equipment he has available. A bonus was the large crocodiles we were able to get close to.
