My husband and I were part of Orlando’s first South African group and I agree with everything Jenny scribed - Orlando was absolutely fantastic, he has a friendly disposition and a wicked sense of humour – no “gefuffeling” in the back seat of his coach! He kept us entertained during our entire trip with antidotes, information and we had many laughs. My husband and I travelled to Mexico, Costa Rica, and a Star Clipper cruise thru the Panama Canal to Cuba, and the highlight of my trip was Costa Rica, predominantly because Orlando made his country, of which he is so proud, come alive. He was open and honest about the pros and cons of Costa Rica’s political and economic situation; is passionate about his beloved rain forests; has an amazing knowledge of fauna and flora and due to his vigilance we had rare sightings - everything from white faced and howler monkeys, a sloth, indigenous birds and plants to leaf ants and more. He was diligent about our comfort, choosing the best hotels, restaurant and sites to visit; took cognisance of our fitness levels and granted all reasonable requests. If you want to tour around Costa Rica, Orlando is your man – he certainly was ours.
