Henry is an interesting and excellent guide, with an in depth knowledge of just about every facet of costa rica. we booked 2 tours with Henry and he ensured that both itineraries were appropriate and fun for both adults and kids (7 and 10 yrs old). He was very skilled at spotting wildlife and provided lots of information when on nature walks. Denis the driver was very pleasant and safe. We all had a memorable time and would highly recommend Henry without hesitation, with a rating of 5 out 5.

Henry is the #1 guide to hire in Costa Rica! We have younger kids with us, 5-11, and he adapted the hikes and tours with no problem and we saw more wildlife than ever before. The amount of knowledge he has of the animals and plants is off the charts. If you want to have a great time and learn about Costa Rica on a deeper level, Henry is your best choice.

Henry is an excellent guide. He is well spoken and knowledgeable about the natural wonders of Costa Rica. He is a generous person and knows excellent spots for views and has a keen eye for animals. When I am visiting a country, I like to have more information about the political, economic and social conditions in a country, and I have been wowed by other guides who essentially have 8 hours of information. That is not Henry's style. I would say he is more 4.5 stars.

This is the ONLY way to see a country like Costa Rica--Our tour was the highlight of our vacation. Henry's knowledge, enthusiasm and patience were incredible. He educated us on EVERYTHING from the time he picked us up through the rainforest & stops along the way. There's no way we would have seen or learned as much without him. His spotting ability was uncanny, and allowed us to see more wildlife that we otherwise never would have noticed. It was like having a VERY educated family member with us.

Henry was a courteous and informative guide who obviously has a great love of nature and the environment and who is enthusiastic about sharing this. We were a party of 8 and had varying degrees of interest in the animal & plant world, but we had a wonderful day with Henry. We did feel that the distance between the two sites we visited was a little long - but this was partly due to our request to not do so much walking due to mobility issues for one of our group. CR was amazing. Thank you Henry!

Once we finally found Henry at the port (maybe ask for a sign with your name on it so you can connect), we had a wonderful experience with Henry. After a stop to see the crocodiles, we headed to Carara Rainforest National Park for a fantastic walk viewing numerous birds, insects and indigenous plants. Henry's knowledge and ability to spot birds etc was enhanced by his spotting scope for a closer look at the colourful creatures. The backroad trip to a local restaurant was a treat!

Henry was very knowledgeable and very good at spotting the wildlife in Carrara National Park. He conducted our 3 mile walk at a nice slow pace in very hot humid weather. He went to some trouble to try and find the macaws but no luck. His binoculars and spotting scope were good. The paths are relatively gentle with some steps. En route we stopped at the Tarcoles bridge to see the crocodiles and he chose a quiet spot away from the coach tours.

Our day included an ecocenter, waterfall hike, lunch with wildlife, scenic drive and more wildlife, just what we wanted! Henry is extremely knowledgeable about the plants and animals, spotted things we never would have seen & was responsive to our questions about Costa Rica's culture and government. Denny was an excellent driver and very friendly, too.

Henry was on time and his van was clean and comfortable. He was very knowledgeable and informative about the areas we visited and about his country as a whole. We enjoyed listening to him and asking questions-and his English is perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Importantly, Henry was most communicative prior to the tour. He took our needs and wishes into consideration to plan a first -rate customized tour of Guanacaste tropical forest and cloud forest areas. A keen observer, Henry brought to our attention many not-so-obvious animals and vegetation. All of this in a friendly, conversant manner. He noted that he was raised in Guanacaste and earned his degree in ecology from the University of Costa Rica.

Henry is the Sloth Whisperer - We wanted to see wildlife on our tour and he delivered; sloths, porcupine, frogs, birds, etc. He was also extremely informative on the area, the history of the country, current events, and especially areas related to conservation, nature, and environment. He is a super nice guy, thoughtful and attentive to what you want to see and do, so you will really enjoy not only your tour but spending time with him. We will use him again on our next trip to Costa Rica!

Henry took our group of 4 to Rincón de la vieja and I cannot say enough great things about him and the amazing experience we had!! Henry is incredibly knowledgable, funny, laid back, and professional. He was prepared for everything! From a scope to bug spray to a laser pointer, he thought of every way possible to ensure we learned a lot and that we had the most enjoyable experience. Thank you, Henry, for being so flexible and for leaving us with memories to last a lifetime. Pura Vida ~

Henry gave me the most wonderful and exciting tour. He is very knowledgeable of the ecology of the area, able to spot birds and other animal, and tell me about the plants. He and his brother, who drove very carefully, took me for a walk in a park which had many animals, frogs, insects, birds and sloths. We even got to be within nearly a hands reach of a climbing female sloth. His brother held my mobile camera and took great photos for my memories.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful Thank you for coming! Henry :)

We very much enjoyed our day-long tour with Henry and his driver Marco en route from Puntarenas to San Jose. Henry's commentary was interesting and informative as we drove towards the Carara Rainforest and he was diligent in helping us view and identify the wildlife there. Afterwards he took us to an unusual local restaurant (Marta's kitchen) on a hilltop near Jaco which was a real highlight and which we definitely would not have found ourselves. This is what I hoped for when booking with "tourbylocals".

I am so thankful that I decided to use ToursByLocals for a private tour in Costa Rica. Our guide, Henry, has a degree in Ecology and another one in education. If he had not been with us, we would have walked by a large majority of animals without even noticing. Fortunately, Henry was there to point out different species of monkeys, sloths, and other animals. He is super knowledgeable about the animals and plants in the rainforest. Not only was he knowledgeable, he was also friendly and easy-going.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a wonderful day we had! Thank you

My family of four got a private tour to Baldi Springs and Sky Trek zipline both near Arenal volcano. Our guide Henry was very helpful and knowledgeable. his brother who did the driving was careful and smooth. Baldi is absolutely amazing and so was sky trek. We would have liked to have more time to do a hike around the volcano but as it was we started early and got back late so understandable. Kids under 7 cant do sky trek so keep that in mind. Baldi very kid friendly. Thank you Henry!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello family, you were so patience, and your kids are so smart! Saludos

Henry did an excellent job of guiding our family of 6 for the day around the Rincon volcano. He was very knowledgeable and well informed. The tour was well planned and allowed for sufficient time to do all the activities we decided to do at the beginning of the tour. Highly recommend Henry together with his brother Daniel (who was our driver) for any future tour in the Guanacaste province.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello amigos, it was great to have you around, come back any time!

This was a fabulous tour. Henry was an expert in all aspects of the rainforest sites we visited. He had an "eagle eye" to spot even the tiniest animals that were available. He know of all the important aspects of the plant and animal species to show us. He went out of his way to find us the best possible experience and truly immersed us into the natural experience that Costa Rica had to offer. He was also very personable, positive, and enthusiastic. I would highly recommend his trip to anybody.

Henry arrived at the JW Marriott and was well prepared for a day of customized touring of volcanos, hot springs, and such. His knowledge of the plants and animals seen is impressive and he offers genuine Costa Rican hospitality. This was our second tour with Henry this week and our family of twelve enjoyed his tour and the educational aspect provided. We'd certainly tour with Henry again. He took extra time to explain to both adults as well as little people the Pura Vida of Costa Rica.

Henry took our family of twelve on a Costa Rican fisherman's tour from the J.W. Marriott which we all enjoyed very much. The tour included a couple of "local" stops where we learned of a unique wine as well as learned of the local history of a couple of towns. Henry is very knowledgeable and created a unique tour for our family. If back in Costa Rica, we will tour with Henry again and certainly recommend others to do so.
