Booked this tour on GetYourGuide in San Jose. Was such a nice day tour out of San Jose. Juan speaks very good English and was a great guide, he was attentive, friendly, helpful but also respected our own space. Monteverde was amazing - there was a local guide who led us on the hike and he was very knowledgable and the hanging bridges and the the rainforest were simply breath taking. Other people on the tour were super friendly and nice too. The lunch was at a really nice restaurant providing high quality local cuisine. Not like a typical tourist spot. This is a must-go experience!
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable (apologies for not remembering his name - we met many amazing folks during our visit to Costa Rica). His knowledge of the forest was beyond expectation. For example, he uncovered for us a tiny orchid that was half the size of a little fingernail. Among the gazillion of flora and fauna species in the forest, he recognized the plant, turned over a leaf (hiding the flower) and there it was. At best, we would have seen and experienced less than 3% of the forest's wonders without his expert guidance.
Karina was the hanging bridges guide, and she was great. She went out of her way to spot bugs, monkeys, butterflies, humming birds, etc. What we didn't know was our tour bus was split between activities, and our driver seemed put-out that this causes confusion.
Alex was a great tour guide! We enjoyed our experience very much and we learned a lot about Costa Rica from him. He was very accommodating and treated us like friends!
Our guide, Alex, was excellent. He was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience memorable. I highly recommend.
