Wonderful experience.. went on a private tour. We were picked up promptly at 8. Saw hummingbird farm on the way. Then went on a hike into the forest. That was a long way but enjoyed it. Then the best part was the 2 seater ropeway which went through the thick forest. Felt like we were flying over the forest. This was absolutely amazing ride , thrilling all the way. A must do for every traveler. Our guide was great. Communication was very good.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly throughout the trip. We did lots, the hummingbird garden, hiking and ziplining through Mindo, ate at a local restaurant, and did a chocolate tour. A great experience

I've done plenty of excursions around the world, but Julio absolutely made this one the best. He's kind, knowledgeable, flexible, and just an overall fantastic ambassador for his country. Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful experience - Oscar and Dante are so nice- and we were able to do a lot in a day! Mindo is a beautiful area with lots to do. I highly recommend this tour!

Exceptional small group tour with flexibility to choose from multiple activities. Unique animals and scenery!
