Our tour guide was extremely personable and sincere in his interactions with our family. It was just our family and the guide, so it was very personalized. He made sure we made it back to our hotel in time to catch breakfast, also which was appreciated.
Super fun trip at an amazing private reserve. We saw our 2nd species of sloth there, and our guide was wonderful. Couldn't expect anything more!
Jason Torres was my favorite guide we had. Very personable and knowledgable. I wasn't really interested in the bird watching, my friend wanted to do it and I went along, but it was my favorite activity we did besides zip lining. He pointed out many other animals besides birds. I honestly don't know how they find them!
There was only one damper on this trip, it rained nearly the entire time. We did see many fantastic birds and our guide was terrific. If scheduling this tour for the purposes of birdwatching, consider the weather carefully.
Despite the early morning rise 'n shine time, our guide was fantastic. Willing to take lots of time to find and explain various birds and insects to us. I worried that the walking might be difficult but it was all paved and so easy to navigate. Beautiful rainforest!
Interesting location, good guide.
Highlight of our visit to the Arenal area.
Our guide was absolutely amazing. Very knowlegeable, and gave us a lot of time and effort even though there was only the two of us.
Great tour and tailored to our needs! Highly recommend!!
Great tour! Santos was a great guide--very good at finding and identifying birds! One of our favorite tours of the trip.
Our guide was great!! willing to walk in the rain with us and helped point out many birds! However we thought we had booked the bird walking tour at hanging bridges (according to out itinerary) but we ended up at Observatory Lodge? Our guide did try to shift it but since it was so early in the morning no one was available. The tour ended up being wonderful but we were looking forward to the hanging bridge for the bird walk.
Koren was a helpful, knowledgeable, accommodating tour guide. He was patient when we were late that morning due to a late arrival at the hotel the previous night. Then he was also flexible with the morning's itinerary. I also loved the knowledge he shared about the surrounding flora and fauna.
The tour was booked as taking place at Hanging Bridges. The alternative was good, but the description in the offer needs to be changed.
There were many photographers in the area, and it was somewhat difficult to see the birds at certain locations. However, we enjoyed this activity very much.
We did not walk far, perhaps 1km, but we saw 49 different birds. And yes we did list them.
Got there, ate our breakfast sandwiches, and couldn't go see the birds because of the rain. He tried again, but it was still raining.
We were rained out
