Johnny arrived on time and wanted to know what birds we wanted to see. It was just us two, Johnny, and his apprentice on the tour. He was very passionate about birds and nature. We unfortunately had a later starting time, but still saw 15+ bird species. At the end of the tour, we sat down for coffee and reviewed... More

We saw around 30 + birds, got to know so many details about different kinds of plants, trees and the ecosystem. Johnny was so knowledgeable, was patient and made the entire hike in the reserve a magical experience. He says... More

We spent 4 great horus with Johnny and it was definetely worthwhile! He is a very good guide and speaks a perfect english too. We first went with his 4x4 car to a private property a bit outside the Monteverde National Park, and there we could see a lot of birds, thanks to his binoculars and thelescope too. Than we... More

We visited the Monteverde cloud forest with Johnny and it was an amazing experience. Johnny is a very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining guide, who made our day very enjoyable. He showed us many different plants and birds, and we were very excited to see quetzal that he had found high above in the trees. His love for the nature makes... More

Without a doubt, Johnny and another of his partners (Jesus) were the best tour guides I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! Extremely knowledgable and will go out of their way to meet the needs or desires of the tour group. After our first tour, we actually booked them for the night tour and following day tour! We highly... More

We booked a morning bird-watching tour at the tourism office in Monte Verde. Johnny picked us up at our hotel. We told him what we were interested in seeing and he determined where we would go to best find quetzals and toucans. He was very knowledgeable about the plants and animals of Costa Rica and his love for nature was... More

On one night tour he found several Beatles, two honey bears, crickets, a tarantula, a sloth, and a viper eating a snake while hanging from a tree. Other tours were actually following him around. Great attitude. He even took us to an awesome Ferris wheel after the tour was done!

Johnny was an awesome guide. He really knows plants and wildlife, and I ended up having a private tour with him in the Monteverde Reserve one day and enjoyed his tour and sense of humor so much, that I did a night tour with him at the nearby Monteverde Wildlife Park. We saw so much wildlife and animals I didn't... More
