        FABULOUS TOUR GUIDE
        Mario Fernandez is a fantastic ranger, very knowledgeable, generous with his time, passionate about his work. We enjoy the Monteverde cloud forest with his guidance. He showed us incredible species, and he did not test until he found a colorful quetzal and it with pride

        Amazing guide, amazing day
        Mario is a top notch guide, other guides ask him for advice, he was incredible at seeing things no one else could (even other guides). Great sense of humour, very knowledgeable, and just a great guy. We’re very glad to have met and thanks for the awesome day!

        Wonderful experience!
        We had such a fantastic day and were able to see everything that we were hoping to see... Sloth, Toucans, Toucanetts, Quetzals, Spider Monkeys! Mario, our guide made a huge difference. He was knowledgeable and so pleasant to hang out with. Ending the day in the hot springs was just icing on the cake. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

        Great birding tour
        Kenneth was amazing! He is a true avian enthusiast and works hard to ensure his client’s have a great birding experience. My teenaged son is a novice photographer and Kenneth provided some tips, as well as positioning us perfectly for some great shots. He also took us to some beautiful, peaceful and tucked away locations near Monteverde with wonderful scenery and great viewing opportunities. Kenneth was professional and personable throughout the session.

        Great Guide. A lot for one day
        The package is good for someone with very little time in the area. I found it to be a bit strenuous and ended up skipping the night tour. (I had driven 3 hours to arrive at 8 am) My guide Jonatan was awesome and I had a fun time with him!! We saw a quetzal!!

        Wonderful Costa Rican experience!
        Kenneth was an amazing tour guide. We booked him for a full day of three tours and loved it all. He is so knowledgable and patiently answered all our questions and taught us so much about Costa Rica, birds, wildlife, and the local area. He even made the tours interesting enough that our two kids (age 6 and 9) did not get bored, instead they were engaged in learning. We saw snakes, more birds than we could count, armadillos, a tarantula, hummingbirds, and more. Kenneth also took great pics for us on our phones so that we could have some memories of the trip. Be sure to book with him, you will love it!

        Night hike review Curi-Cancha
        The night hike in curi-cancha was well worth it and I was hesitant. Our guide, Pablo, was so friendly and enthusiastic! The cacophony of insect sounds was surprising, and our walk was a peaceful 2 hours of exploring. At first, we saw insects, frogs and fireflies; including a UV fluorescent scorpion. A couple of peccaries crossed our path! Then Pablo found 2 toucans resting/sleeping up in the trees! While looking up, we caught a kinkojou rushing atop the tree canopy. It’s a unique experience in the evening!

        Best Tour in Monteverde
        We had the most amazing day with Kenneth on our tour today. He was handsdown the best guide we have had in our trip to Central America. We started the tour knowing nothing about birds but he was able to bring out the most interesting & amazing parts of the Curi Cancha Reserve & the Cloud Forest. If you are not a bird enthusiast, Kenneth will show you the amazing birds that can be spotted in the wild that will blow your mind. If you are a bird watching enthusiast, Kenneth is your must-have guide on your search for the most amazing & spectacular species of birds. The night tour was amazing too, where we spotted wildlife in their resting habitats. All in all 10/10. Thank you Kenneth!

        Wonderful Nature Experience
        We went on the three trips in one day tour to Curi Cancha Reserve, Monterverde Cloud Forest Reserve, and the Night Hike. Kenneth is a wonderful guide and tried very hard to help us learn about the rain forest and see birds, which was our main priority. In addition to being a great birder, he is a wonderful photographer. I would highly recommend taking one of Kenneths tours!

        Amazing Tour with Kenneth!
        Our family of four (kids ages 11/13) visited Monteverde in March and did two wonderful tours with Kenneth. He had taken my parents on tours three years earlier when they visited. Morning tour in Curi Cancha Reserve and a night hike in Monteverde - both were amazing! Kenneth met us at our hotel for both tours, and off we went. Morning tour at 7:30, he asked the kids what they were hoping to see and although you can never guarantee anything we saw all the animals they hoped! He has his telescope and taught the kids how to take pictures through the scope, showed them to listen attentively to hear where the animal sounds come from to help find them. He answered all their questions, explained to us about the deforestation of the reserve in the 50's, which was so interesting - a real life history lesson! That evening we met around 6 and went for the night hike, we were a little nervous but so glad we did it! He had flashlights for us, and we made our way through the trails, so many sleeping birds, snakes, tiny frogs, even sloths in the trees. Its truly amazing he could find all the things we got to see! Definitely hire Kenneth for your tour, he is a pleasure to spend the time with! The Lynn Family

        Amazing experience
        This was so magical. Mario, who filled in for Kenneth, was amazing. His knowledge was beyond belief in terms of the wildlife, plants, and history of the area. We talked about everything on 3 different hikes from Costa Rican culture to the food to travel to the birds and plants. His scope zoom lens was invaluable for taking photos and he helped us find many animals, especially on the night hike, including sloths, snakes, birds, and even a skittish Coati. Worth every colón! One note: there was some confusion about entry into each park/reserve, but Mario took care of that for us. Make sure you check to see if admission is included in your tour and check in with your guide immediately before paying the park--you may not need to.

        Amazing experience with a great tour guide
        We spent the entire day with Kenneth who is a very passionate naturalist. We were impressed by his knowledge and love of Costa Rica biodiversity. He was excellent at spotting wildlife and he took amazing pictures for us through his telescope. He was funny and patient and we highly recommend him.

      Kenneth was an outstanding tour guide. My husband wanted to particularly focus on wildlife photography and Kenneth was not only knowledgeable about the birds and other wildlife but his photography knowledge was excellent. He helped me extensively with photos through the scope using my cell phone. This was a fabulous experience and both my husband and i recommend Kenneth highly.

      Kenneth is an incredibly knowledgeable And patient guide. He helped us find two different endangered species, including the elusive Margays. We also saw pit vipers, Toucans, Olingos, glass butterflys, frogs and many other species that I can’t pronounce! With his vast knowledge of the rainforest and remarkable photography skills, he helped us take many once-in-a-lifetime photos. Highly recommend booking a night hike with Kenneth! This should not be missed while visiting Monteverde. Thank you, Kenneth!

      Toni was a fantastic guide. Knowledgeable and passionate about ecology. He identified many species that we would not have seen or known what they were. Highly recommended.

      Overall, I gave the experience a 4/5 but I want to review the guide and the company separately, because we faced issues which I believer were the responsibility of the company and not the guide himself.

      Guide: 5/5. Our guide was great. He was a very knowledgeable, nice guy. We didn't see many animals, which I think in part was due to the weather, but despite this we had a nice nature walk in beautiful scenery.

      Company: 3/5. Despite the TripAdvisor page stating, "Traveler pickup is offered.
      You have to be on your Hotel's reception at the agreed time", we never received confirmation of pick up leading up to our trip. I messaged the company through TripAdvisor, I emailed the company directly, and I tried calling the listed phone number in the days leading up to our tour but I couldn't get ahold of anyone and never received a reply. We asked our local hotel for advice and they said they had never heard of the company but they would try calling for us, again with no luck. At this point we thought there was a chance that our reservation wasn't legitimate and we would be doing the tour without a guide. Then, one of the front desk staff of our hotel thought to try messaging the number on WhatsApp and successfully received a reply, however the message relayed to us was that transportation wasn't offered by them and a guide would meet us at the park (our hotel was 4 km from the park entrance so distance wasn't the issue). We were disappointed to hear this, as one of the reasons we chose this tour company was transportation. I hope the TripAdvisor listing gets sorted out, because it's currently a little misleading.
