What people are saying

“Antoine's tour had a light, deft touch, but his insights and folklore will stay with me far longer than those delivered in any formal lecture. Perfectly pitched, fun and highly recommended"
Kate Woodward
“Antoine is super knowledgeable and informative about nature, and manages to combine a great mix of curiosity and accessible learning with interactive conversation and enthusiasm.”
Olivia Beirne
International Best-Selling Author
“Antoine was very knowledgeable and good at catering to the needs of a group with diverse interests. Even though it was rainy the time flew by and I learnt a lot.”
Dr Monique Davies
