What an experience, not only walking through the canopy high up in the trees but an adventure with crocodiles. A party of four of us were met directly at our cruise ship and therefor no searching for the operator, only 50 metres from the the ship our minibus was awaiting. This began a great experience which we all really enjoyed. Our guide was a mind of information as we traversed the forest for about 90 minutes before having a rest at a local hotel before our next adventure with crocodiles. This lasted about 80 minutes and to me was the highlight of our tour. The captain of the ship even went ashore and fed these wild crocodile with chicken and even had then take the food from his hand; something i would not attempt.
Our guide for the day was just brilliant he could not have been better;unfortunately I am unable to remember his name but I attach his photo! Thank you for the tour it was excellent.

good communication prior to and during booking. Well presented team with clear identification of tour group. Small group, walking pace well managed. Plenty of stops for restrooms. Interesting narration from skywalk guide. Would like to have traversed more bridges and left out the gift shop at the end. River cruise excellent. Guide called peachie very informative and funny. The driver, Juan superb. Really enjoyed the experience.

The rainforest skywalk is a marvelous adventure for a day in Puntarenas! There are a number of wooden bridges suspended from steel cables. You actually get to walk above the treetops for a very unique view of the jungle. We got to see many birds, butterflies, and a few monkeys. This is not a tour for people with a fear of heights!

Our guide Michel picked us up right at the dock of our cruise ship. He was very knowledgeable and answered many questions. The tree top walk was good. Some birds but no animals sadly. Great fresh fruit snack at a resort. Then off the river cruise. Well done. We saw lots of birds and were helped to identify them as well as several VERY large crocodiles. We were returned to the ship in time for departure. Much less expensive than any of the ship board excursions and very well done.

As explained in our email confirmation from Greenway Tours, our guide Alberto met us on the dock not far from the ship’s gangway, with a sign with our names on it. We enjoyed traveling in a comfortable, air conditioned minibus for the tour. My husband and I were fortunate to be included with 8 others for the 6 in 1 Tour. This meant that in addition to the Rainforest Skywalk and Tarcoles River Cruise, we also made a stop along the side of the road and got to see Alberto and our driver Eugenio call out, attract a group of capuchin monkeys to come through the trees and hand feed them with small pieces of fruit. It was surprising and remarkable to see them up close. The highlight of our hike and walk on two suspended bridges was when Alberto pointed out a mother sloth and her baby up in the trees. We spent an extended time observing and I think that might have been the reason we didn’t walk across a third bridge. On the way to the Tarcoles River we stopped for a snack of fresh fruit and drinks. The river cruise included seeing crocodiles, lots of different birds, frigate birds in flight, sitting in silence listening to the sounds of all the creatures in the mangroves, and being amazed to see the guide remove his shoes and socks, step out of the boat onto the riverbank, wake a sleeping crocodile he knows by name and then feed him a few pieces of raw chicken. Apparently he does this on a daily basis and has been for a number of years. He passed out laminated charts with the names and photos of the birds and crocodiles we might see and he pointed out many birds along the river. The tour concluded with a brief stop at El Jardin, a store with a variety of products from coffee to carved wood items, masks, and other souvenirs. A local artist was also selling his artwork (paintings of turtles, hummingbirds, quetzal birds, and flowers) outside and working on new paintings. The tour was informative, conducted at a comfortable pace, interspersed with bathroom and snack breaks where WiFi was available, and ended on time back at the ship. A very enjoyable day. Glad we chose Greenway Tours for our excursion-it was really nice to be part of a small group to learn about the plants and animals of the region. Remember comfortable closed walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and possibly binoculars.

I booked this tour as an independent tour to those offered on Celebrity Infinity cruise through the Panama Canal. I chose this Punta Arenas tour because it offered a better combination of things than Celebrity's offer, was cheaper, in a smaller group and you only paid deposit upfront, cash balance on the day. The tour vehicle was very good and the guide, Stevan Guiterrez was outstanding. He told us a lot about Costa Rica using an interesting card and answer technique that involved us all on the coach. We went to the top of the mountain by coach and walked down the trails through the tree canopy to be met by the coach at the bottom. He showed us a lot in the canopy, birds, frogs leaf cutter ants in action, iguanas and lizards, some of which he caught for our closer inspection. After lunch we went down to the Tarcoles river for a cruise in a small boat. Again, Stevan got us super seats in the boat and the wildlife was great, howler monkeys, hawks, lots of water boards and off course the crocs! The guy from the boat was entertaining, he got out barefoot on the slippery mud bank and enticed a 15ft croc with raw fish to show her off to us - quite spectacular. We then resumed the coach and took in some local shopping before returning to the Infinity. We learned a lot and it was a first class day out. Would definitely use Greenway Nature Day Tours again.

Michel was an amazing guide--very informative & patient with all our question. Skywalk was very easy & nicely paced. Very interesting learning about a dry tropical rainforest. Wonderful juice & fresh fruit following our walk.Tour of the river Tarcoles was incredible--especially watching Cpt. Juan feed the crocs. A very enjoyable day & a wonderful company.

Just returned from cruise on Norwegian Star. This excursion was scheduled for midday - very hot, no animals to be seen on skywalk. Suspension bridges mildly interesting, Saw a couple alligators from a distance on boat cruise. Did see a variety of birds from the boat. Wish we had opted for a different excursion.
