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!!!!

Giuliano made our trip to Monteverde Reserve really worthwhile. He is extremely knowledgeable about the fauna and flora and all the wildlife that you will come across. He spots animals so well. We were fortunate enough to see a quetzal, an olingo, a tarantula (hiding in a hole) and a viper snake. He will also take a photo for you through his telescope, which come out quite well! For $20 per person it is really worthwhile. Giuliano is a really friendly guide and will make your trip very enjoyable.

Our hotel, Monteverde Rustic Lodge, recommended Giuliano and booked a tour of the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve with him for us. At $20 per person for a 3 hour private tour, this was some of the best value we experienced in Costa Rica. He is not only incredibly knowledgeable and a great spotter, but he is interesting, personable and speaks impeccable English. Without him our visit would have been just another walk in the woods. Instead we came away with a good understanding of the country, it’s topography and various climatic zones, as well as the flora and fauna. Thank you Giuliano for a great introduction to your country.

We found Giuliano on Trip Advisor the day we wanted to go on the tour. Some friendly Costa Ricans pointed us in the right direction towards what we thought was his office. Turns out they pointed us towards his girlfriends shop! She was very surprised, but then helped us find him and get the tour that same night! (Her store is also very cool. I bought some gifts there). I don't think Giuliano was planning on doing a tour that night, but he came to meet us at the park and even sent us transportation. We saw vipers, frogs, sleeping jays, a tarantula molted skin, and many cool bugs and spiders. He is very humble, but ask him about some of the interesting guests he has taken on tours.

My wife and I were recommended Giuliano by a friend and our two days in Monteverde were unforgettable due to his guiding. First we went to the orchid park, an eye opener to set the scene. We toured the cloud forest with him by day and at night, seeing many flowers and animals including a baby male Quetzal and a rare green viper. He is a most amusing and cultivated person in addition to being a brilliant naturalist. Although very modest we learned that he had been chosen to guide the Prince and Princess of Japan when they came to Monteverde. We certainly felt like we had received royal treatment!
