We had an excellent experience with our guide Marcos. He was incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about not only the mammals but the birds, the trees, the ecosystem, the botany... a wide range of knowledge. He was clearly passionate about what he does, easy to talk to, very accommodating and took extra time to make sure that we had a peak experience. We would recommend him highly.

Such a great way to visit the Cloud forest - highly recommend
Jen_W, Feb 2024
We booked the day + night tour, and it was definitely the right decision. Marcos was an incredible guide - knowledgeable about not just the flora and fauna, but also shared about the local history of the region and warm and welcoming as they come. We saw all sorts of creatures out there we didn't think we'd spot, many thanks to Marcos's keen eye, and his genuine desire to have us see as much of the unique biodiversity of the region as we could fit in. Also - the dinner snack was more like a full meal, and actually ended up being one of our favorite meals across the entire week we spent in Costa Rica. :) Highly recommend - thank you Susu and Marcos!
Great time with Jason.

Magical rainforest SkyWalk

Absolutely magical! Definitely created some lifetime memories. Our guide, Elier, was phenomenal. He studied several years in college to become a naturalist and impressed us with his knowledge.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Thank you for your review and for mentioning what a great tour you had with Elier!
Fantastic day and night tour
Ellie_H, Apr 2023
We did a day and night tour with Stephen. It surpassed all expectations. Stephen was absolutely fantastic! We saw so many birds and animals and learnt lots of interesting facts about monteverde and the cloud forest on the way. We would recommend this tour to get the most out of the area. Thanks again Stephen for such a great tour!

Thank you for such for your review and for your recommendation!
Birds galore!
Kelly_S, Apr 2023
We chose to tour the hanging bridges with Jason at SkyAdventures and we had the most amazing time! The hanging bridges themselves are such a neat way to view the cloud forest, but we were also lucky enough to see at least a dozen incredible birds. Jason was extremely knowledgeable and patient and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. We couldn't recommend this tour more!
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Thank you for your recommendation! Jason indeed is great at what he does, and we're so happy he could help you experience the best of the cloud forest on the bridges. Wow and lots of birds - that's awesome!
Fab morning

Amazing tour with incredible wildlife we would never have spotted on our own. Very knowledgeable guide - Felix was terrific.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Wonderful news! Thank you for your review.
A wow day!
Veronique_B, Mar 2022
This tour was the best tour we took while in Costa Rica. Our guide Félix was amazing. He was very pleasant, very knowledgeable, and extremely patient while we were busy taking a million photos. We saw so much wildlife both during the day and night portion of the tour that it was almost overwhelming! Thank you so much for such a beautiful day. We will definitely come back for more.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thanks for this review! We definitely would love to see you back here for another Monteverde experience. We're glad your time with Felix was well spent. See you again soon, hopefully!
Most knowledgeable guide ever!
KELLY_D, Jul 2021
Will was an extremely knowledgeable guide. We had a fantastic time! Will made me want to take up birdwatching when I get home to the US. His enthusiasm is contagious.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thanks for your review! So glad Will's enthusiasm came through - he loves what he does! Hope to see you again soon.
Awesome Guide!

I wasn't able to participate, but my friends and my teenage daughters raved and raved about their wonderful guide. Highly recommended!

Perfect. We really enjoyed this activity (our first booked w Viator). Marcos is knowledgeable, patient and really good with kids. We saw monkeys, a tarantula, tons of birds, and amazing flora. Would recommend

June L, Mar 2017
Our guide, Marcos, was incredible. We learned so much and had a great time doing it. He clearly treasures the wonders around him and sharing them with others. He knew where to look, was quick to recognize sounds and spot things we would have missed. And he readily adapted his choice of trail and his pace to our group. I can't imagine that we could possibly have had a better guide.
