  1. I am new to Cyrpus, coming from South Africa, and Konstantinou has been really amazing helping me find all sorts of wildlife in Cyprus. He has made it his life's work to discover all that Cyprus has to offer, and it is great fun heading out looking for all the different species! I am looking forward to our next outing together.

  3. If ever there is a complete encyclopaedia written about the flora and fauna of Cyprus, its Churches and Monasteries, its prehistoric fossil history, its picturesque villages, its unique rock formations, then it would still not contain as much knowledge as is in George Konstantinou's brain. The man is unique. His company a gem. I thoroughly recommend a trip with him!

  4. Just meeting Konstantinou is quite an experience. Having a tour around Cyprus’ nature with him as a guide is unforgettable. I had one of these for birding today. I saw hundreds of birds, 6 great birding sites, 9 new for me species, 1 endemic for Cyprus, 1 endemic lizard, caves, cliffs and many more. Most valuable of all, what can not be said in numbers or even words - what one feels around people who love the land and all that lives or lived on it.
    Last but not least - the famed home made sandwiches - as good as they come in, at least, Western Palearctic!

  5. Thank you to George who gave us a memorable birding day. August is a hot month when lots of the birds are missing in action. George took us to a spot where we got a few of the endemics and I was thrilled. He knows his birds and knows where to find them.
