This tour was exceptional in the number and quality of bird sightings we were able to make! They included over 50 species many of which we were able to see up close in our guide's scope. Our guide shared detailed information about the birds we saw. He was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and professional, helping us take breathtaking photos through his scope. It's important that people know that this tour does not take you to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve in spite of the advertised title "Monteverde reserve Birding tour with Esteban daily guided tours". Our guide was also not Esteban but Dernierth. Instead of the Monteverde reserve, we walked around Monteverde roadsides and then went to the Curi Cancha reserve. I believe this offered a superior birding experience (but I had bought tickets ahead of time to the Monteverde reserve thinking that we were heading there, so don't buy entrance tickets ahead of time if you book this tour!).

Esteban gave us an exceptional bird tour in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. He was friendly, knew his stuff and made it great fun with plenty stories too. We really enjoyed the experience and appreciated starting early when it was quiet.
Awesome hike and amazing birds

Esteban is a fantastic guide. He is so knowledgeable and had super informative answers to all our questions, and was able to point out some amazing birds that we could see up close through his bird spotting scope. We were able to see a Quetzal and a Toucan! 5 stars for Esteban!
