Highly recommend this tour. Dani was our tour guide and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. Our driver was very accommodating to us (we were a group of 9) and made several stops along the way if he spotted native birds, monkeys or sloths. An extremely enjoyable morning.

Our boat was covered and kept off the sun. The crew were very knowledgeable and pointed out many species along the way and so we were able to see birds and animals which made the trip enjoyable . Also our driver Steve was excellent.
