Viator always provides a first rate experience. They pick you up at your hotel and contract with the top local tour companies so the trip is flawless. Our trip to the cloud forest was amazing with a knowledgeable guide. In addition, we saw the hummingbird and butterfly gardens. And the bonus, on the way home in the van our guide spotted two toucans at the top of the tree -- not an easy find in Costa Rica regardless of what the tourist information says. My advice -- before you go somewhere, just book your trip with Viator online and they will get it done for you the right way. It beats the time consuming process of talking to all of the tour agencies once you get to your destination.

Our tour guide and driver were both VERY nice and friendly. They took great care of us. We went on a day where the sky was clear so we didn't see a lot of clouds, but instead we were able to see a lot of animals and insects instead. The drive to Monteverde was very bumpy so just expect that on the way. The butterfly garden was VERY interesting to see. They also showed us some insects that live in the Cloud Forest as well and told us interesting facts about each one of them. We also got to release new butterflies as well which was really nice.

Best Tour Ever!!! We had absolutely the best tour guide and driver in the world! Carlos and Mauricio were amazing, and we had the time of our lives. We saw so much along the way, had an a fabulous breakfast and lunch, and the rainforest was just spectacular. It's a long day, but worth making the trip. The road to Monteverde is very bumpy, but half the fun. We loved this tour!.

It was great! The views from the suspension bridges were fantastic. Both the tour guide and driver were knew their stuff and taught us so much. And the butterfly garden was much more interesting than I had thought it would be. On a personal note: I do wish this tour had more of a hiking component

This trip was very good. We were able to see monkeys in their natural habitat. The guide was terrific. The drive is very long but is an opportunity to see the beautiful landscape. I also enjoyed the butterfly garden. The meal provided was one of the best meals I had while in Costa Rica. It is worth your time.

Amazing sights and guide, didn't see many animals but beautiful sights, butterfly place was ok, but very informative. The long ride is a great story and adventure in itself, yes it's long (4 hours) and bumpy but you are in a third world country. Loved the small group we had.
