Our tour included hanging bridges, the butterfly garden, and the hummingbirds. The hanging bridge tour was amazing. Our guide was super knowledgeable and fun and the bridges are really neat. The hummingbirds were nice as well, but essentially just a collection of feeders. The butterfly garden was very educational but not quite as much of a “wow” as the bridges. I am glad we did all three, but definitely enjoyed the hanging bridges most of all.
Very knowledgable and scientific guide, really enjoyed the solo guided tour!
The guided tour over the bridges was great. The butterflies not so special, the hummingbirds were fun, even though it rained.
Learned so much from our guide! Beautiful views. Hummingbirds were amazing.
There were way too many people here (including screaming kids). It felt like a tourist trap with very few visible animals. The butterfly garden and humming birds were the highlights, but even the humming bird area had constant zipline noise. I would not do the bridges again. The bridge guide only talked about a few things, but the butterfly garden guide was VERY good.
It was rainy and we were paired with a family with young children that did not want to walk or cross the bridges, which ruined the experience. The butterfly house was quiet because of rain. The hummingbird garden was spectacular. A lot of waiting for transportation and the. Tours.
The park where we tools these excursions was excellent. It was great to be able to do all these things at one place.
All was wonderful
Our daughter loved this tour the best. The hanging bridges were really the best!
This one was on my bucket list. The guide was great and we saw several quetzals and some howlers. Plenty of bridges and a beautiful forest. The butterfly garden was beautiful, but there were too many pushy people on our tour, so we left early, in spite of the good guide. The hummingbird garden was underrated, we loved having a quite place to rest, have a cool drink and enjoy the dozen or so species that we had never seen before close up. Again, the sardine packed van, and the sign in process was also very crowded, no place to sit and wait for various tours, too many people.
Wow what a great hike with a knowledgeable guide. The butterfly habitat was too warm but provided a great opportunity to see them up close.
The guide was outstanding! He has Superman eyes!
Guided hanging bridges tour was very interesting. Tour guide was excellent. Butterflies tour guide not as knowledgeable as I had hoped. Loved the hummingbirds.
Good, thought we'd see more.
Though this was a small group tour, it was very enjoyable. 100% satisfied with the guide on the hanging bridges walk. He worked extra hard so we could see the beautiful bird, Quetzal. He pointed out so many little things along the way such as pointing out some micro orchid flowers. I especially enjoyed the open time in the hummingbird garden. That was truly an exciting experience.
We didn't have much information about this tour so didn't know what to expect. the guide did his best it what were appalling weather conditions.
Another great day. Our guide was very good. Busy at 'check-in' but well handled.
Hummingbirds were amazing. Guide was very helpful.
Check in on site very confusing, a lot of frustrated guests, lengthy waits, unclear movement from section to section on site. Good restaurant.
We had a great guide! I wish I could think of his name. He spent lots of time helping us see lots of wildlife, especially the birds! This was our best tour of the trip!
Too many people at Selvatura - would have preferred to go to Monteverde without all of the crowds.
Nice hike and views, but nothing to write home about.
Had a lot of fun and this guide was one of our best. We had a TEST! - oh my - had to pay attention and learned so much about CR. Extremely well organized place - really kept the tourist moving without pushing. Very safety conscious.
Very knowledgeable and passionate guides.
Guide was very informative and pointed out several things we would have missed.
This tour has three parts. The hummingbirds was amazing! Everyone really got a kick out of the hummingbirds that fly right up to you and even land on you! Beautiful and magical. The walk through the forest on the hanging bridges was a great hike through various levels of the cloud forest and our guide was very engaging. These guides can spot wildlife with their telescopes and tell you all about it. Very educational.
No one's fault, but the weather meant that we saw fewer animals ... luckily there we had many more days in Costa Rica to see monkeys :)
Pouring rain after the hurricane Otto, so we saw very little wild life. Saw 2 owls. Hummingbird experience was good. Guides were excellent.
Beautiful hike and the butterflies are breathtaking. Don't waste your money on the hummingbirds! Takes all of 2 minutes.
Very pleased with the guides who were well trained and very helpful. Much better experience than Monteverde. Guide knew his birds and the flora and fauna, and was very happy to share this knowledge. Hummingbird garden was amazing, worthwhile to do at your leisure not with a guide. We just sat and watched. Butterfly area was okay, but we should have been there earlier in the day as that is when they would be more active.
