I'm glad we did this but after the first couple quetzals they started to look the same. We headed back early. Also, we were not notified this tour would begin at 5:30am - we likely would not have signed up if we had realized.


This tour didn't meet our expectations. The guide drove us to one single location where we had to wait for several hours, the temperature was freezing this early in the day.


The guide, who was the manager of the lodge, was very knowledgeable.


Guide -- Grayson -- wanted to ensure we had good experience. We saw a quetzal!


Excellent tour. The guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He did not disappoint. It was a wonderful experience.
