Earlier this month, our group of 5 had the absolute pleasure of having Giuliano as our guide in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. We have had more than a handful of guides here, and Giuliano is - without question - one of the very best. His love of the forest and extensive 20 years of experience guiding there shine through. He pointed out several species of bird (including the resplendent quetzal), howler monkeys, and provided interesting information about this beautiful and fragile ecosystem in a way that was understandable and connected us deeply to the magic of the environment. A rare pleasure!

Guiliano is an incredible tour guide. Effortlessly spots wild life to show you, and points out beautiful plants and provides very interesting information. I’m addition to great facts and views, Guiliano gives you time to take in the forest in silence, which is an incredible experience. I loved my time with guiliano in the forest! Saw 2 quetzals!! Howler monkeys! Other birds! And a sloth!

We did a tour with Giuliano and had a wonderful time. Giuliano knows a lot about the reserve and its fauna and flora. He provides interesting facts and sprake excellent English. As a cherry on top: We saw several qetzals.

To be honest, I have no idea how good Giuliano's tours are, they are highly rated and I have no doubt for good reason, but he communication and organisation skills are not good enough. I booked with him direct by email months in advance as he is very well thought of in the area. He arranged to stop by our hotel and allow us to follow him for to the tour but never showed up. When we contacted him (15 minutes after the agreed pickup time) to find out where he was he was already at the park and when we managed to get there in our car, we were told he had already gone in without us and the park was full anyway (about 30 minutes after he told us to head there). So, we missed the tour completely, could not get into the cloud forest and had to leave due to other commitments. He did over us a free tour the next morning and then cancelled that about 30 minutes later as he was full. We felt totally messed about by him and all this could have been easily avoided had he stuck with the agreed arrangements that he made (at his suggestion) with us. It was a shame as this was the ONLY time in 2 weeks in Costa Rica that our arrangements (2-3 per day) did not go as planned. I am being very generous giving 3 stars really, but to be honest, we never did the tour itself and I guess the people who went on it without us had a great time.

Knowledgeable, kind, charming. Thank you Giuliano for allowing my family to see the Resplandescent Quetzal for the first time. But also thank you the passion you have for your work and towards conservation. What a remarkable morning. Can’t wait to come back! Grazzie mile!!!!
