We were so lucky to have booked a night tour and a cloud forest tour with Marcos. Marcos is extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of Costa Rica and we learned so much. Plus, he has such an engaging way about him that my 2 boys were really interested in what he had to say. They still talk about... More

Marcos was an amazing guide for a beautiful and enjoyable morning in the Curi-Cancha Reserve. He shared a whole wealth of information about the Monteverde area as well as about every interesting plant and animal we encountered. He also engaged my kids - who were not happy to be hiking in the early morning after a full day at Selvatura... More

We are glad that we decided to work with Susu and Marcos to plan our tour of the Monteverde area. Susu was very helpful in planning our itinerary and helping us decide how to spend our time. She answered all of my many email questions with no complaints and almost as soon as I sent them. We decided on the... More

We had the pleasant experience of being treated to a tour of Santa Elena Reserve and the town of Santa Elena by Marcos. We were treated like long lost cousins. Marcos exemplifies Tico hospitality. It is worth the extra $ to have a personal guide. We had afternoon plans which influenced our Reserve choice, but really any Reserve could have... More

Thanks for your review! We feel that impromptu sightseeing (when/if appropriate) always helps a personalized, private tour, and is more fun! Come again soon! -Marcos and Susu More

We had a fantastic guided tour of the monteverde reserve with Marcos this morning. From the moment he picked us up from our hotel Marcos had a wealth of interesting knowledge to share with us about the local community, Costa Rican history and of course, the wildlife and plants in the monteverde reserve. That combined with his easy going nature... More

We did a day tour and a night tour with Marcos in Montevrde Reserve. We had a great experience. Things to point out: - Marcos was very friendly and responsive upon our arrival - he picked us up at our house right on time - his knowledge about nature is just unbelievable. He also adds this "twist" to his explanation... More

Amazing tour of the Monteverde Cloud Forest with Marcos. I only wish we could bring him all around Costa Rica with us! We have already recommended Marcos to several travellers we have met since our tour with him. If you are looking for a down to earth, passionate, and exceptional person, Marcos is the guide for you. A private tour... More

We did a night and day tour with Marcos. He was extremely knowledgable and could easily relate with our young children (4 and 6 years old). He demonstrated a genuine interest in teaching us about the diverse ecosystem of Monteverde. Through our 11 day tour of Costa Rica, we did many different tours and Marcos was hands down the best...

Marcos and Susu knocked themselves out planning an amazing time for me in Monteverde. All the arrangements were taken care of and everything went smoothly. I went on several day trips in Curi-Cancha, Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, and other places in Santa Elena too numerous to list. Marcos is a fantastic naturalist guide, we saw so many birds and other... More
