Praise from Natural Habitat Travelers:

S. November
"On every trip with Nat Hab we can't imagine the guide being better than the other trips, but Brad is unbelievable. He has amazing enthusiasm and knowledge and always found interesting things to fill the day with. His photographic knowledge was wonderful and he was extremely helpful. It did not matter if the question was very basic or not, Brad took the time to explain the answer so that you understood it. He is a phenomenal guide!"

B. Park
"Brad was exceptional in his knowledge of bears and his ability to make us comfortable. He can help with the cameras and is willing to do anything to help his clients. His passion for his work is infectious. We loved him!!"

P. Barker
"Brad is an excellent guide! I was extremely excited to see that he was guiding this trip. He has excellent knowledge of China and pandas, as well as other animals. He also has excellent knowledge about cameras and helped me get out of the idiot modes (i.e., sports, automatic, portrait, landscape). Brad pays attention to details, by getting to know you, you likes, dislikes, what you want to see, how you are doing. He is an excellent guide. Would go on a trip with him anytime. Our local and national guides were very knowledgeable and took care of all of our needs."

K. Ito
"Brad's knowledge and enthusiasm is first-rate. He knows and is passionate about his bears. With the wide range of travelers he was very good at seeing to the needs of all and no one felt left behind. He gave us good background on what to expect at each site, and he did his best to see that our experience was great."

E. Raizman
"Brad was very attentive to our needs and we learned a great deal from his expertise on bears. He was flexible and changed plans according to the needs of the group, which was greatly appreciated. Even more, he seemed excited to be leading this adventure and excited about the bears -- it was not just a job for him, and that made the trip more exciting and positive for us as well."
