Rey also helped us with logistics - arranging onsite hotel, suggesting other guides to contact for local rainforest tours, etc. Overall a great experience that I would definitely recommend!

We had spent the previous day walking some of the birding trails on our own (thank you Saul for recommendations) and visiting the Rainforest Discovery centre to see hummingbirds and do the canopy tour.

His birding skills are excellent, recognizing all the sounds (I sometimes confused insect or amphibian calls with birds but he always knew) and quickly getting us on the bird, seeking out the elusive and shy ones.
For what you would pay for a day at Canopy Tower you can have a personal guide who is more knowledgeable than that vaunted staff and you’re almost certain to pick up more species to boot!

I was able to spot wild orchids growing out of a dead tree's branch the next day on the Rainforest tram, and was very quickly able to identify sloths in the trees since I had been educated about what to look for.
Staff is friendly and seems knowledgeable and respectful of the animals.
