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.
Good guide Good tour It was worth it ..... he managed to pass on us his love for the nature... We would recommend his services to anyone

Although this tour was almost a year ago now, we think of our time in Cost Rica often and one of our most special days was with Henry. He was accommodating and thoughtful. We felt very safe and taken care of, and got to know special things of Costa rican natural & human history, geography, etc that we might have missed on a larger group tour. It was well worth the money in our opinion. His driver was awesome also and we felt safe on the roads. We are definitely going to use Tours by locals again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful Gracias amigos

Henry is an excellent guide and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He has a real passion for nature and lots of knowledge to share. He also has a pleasant low-key personality, which is important when you are spending a full day with someone. And he has an amazing ability to spot wildlife. All together, one of the best guides we've hired.
Wow. Henry was very knowledgeable and helped us spot (and learn to spot) so many different species of plants and animals. Henry helped provide the perfect day for my wife and I. Every aspect of the tour was extremely well done and personalized just for us. If we had attempted to try this on our own we would of missed SO MUCH. I thank you Henry (and Dennis) for providing us with an absolutely wonderful day. All the best !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: All the best for your family! H

This was our third tour with Henry. Having used Henry for a tour with just me and my husband as well as for our family (boys 5 and 8) I can say he is able to design fun days that will engage any age group. This is a great way to experience the "real" Costa Rica and learn about the nature and people of this beautiful country. I highly recommend Henry!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We loved sharing with your (loco :)) family!!! xoxo PV H

Henry is an excellent guide who suggested destinations based on our initial communication and then adjusted during the day as he noticed our interests. 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.

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 was extremely flexible and accommodating during both days of our adventure with him. His brother is the driver thus allowing full attention for guiding services. He accommodated our day very well. I had a personal injury and he was very understanding and kind. Is extremely knowledgeable in the nuances of Costa Rica, the geographic areas and the animal life.

Simply the best. Henry did our Arenal tour and picked us up from the resort. The transportation was great and he was an amazing tour guide. He know the land and history extremely well. Also a true naturalist and someone who appreciates the natural beauty of the country. Highly recommended!!
Best Tour Guide in Costa Rica. Henry showed us what Costa Rica actually is. He tailored our tour to meet our requirements and took us to some unexpected locations. Henry's knowledge of the area is impressive and enlightening. We were so pleased as it really made our vacation!!!

We spent 7 incredible days on a private tour with Henry. He is the most knowledgable guide we have ever worked with. His driver was also excellent. Henry has lived in many different places in Costa Rica and brings a rich understanding of all parts of his country. He is expert in the flora and fauna and has an amazing ability to spot hard to find animals. His recommended itinerary was excellent and he was very flexible in making changes based on weather and our evolving interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greetings from Costa Rica, thank you for your wonderful comments. Cheers...
Brooke FaughtUnited States
Henry was absolutely amazing. He was prompt, knowledgeable, eager to personalize our trip and fun! He picked us up at our hotel and utilized every minute for adventure and exploring. He can spot animals in trees while driving that most human eyes would never detect. I would HIGHLY recommend Henry's tours. Our tour significantly enhanced our trip to Costa Rica.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a wonderful time as well! Thank you amigos..
Darryl HarrisUnited States
We enjoyed Henry so much, and learned so much about the area, that we wanted to see yet another area through his eyes. Once again, he is very prompt on arrival and had the day planned out. We were able to see the howling monkeys. This was particularly impressive because as we passed guided groups who passed the same areas we did, they had not seen them. It takes a keen eye but also a vast knowledge of the habitat. Henry is amazing and we actually cancelled another trip to spend another day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: visiting the amazing rainforest sanctuaries is something everyone should experience, and only a few can enjoy! Thank you for sharing! Henry
Cara PetersonUnited States
Henry was a great tour guide. He is extremely knowledgable about the plant life and animals of Costa Rica. He personalized our tour as the day progressed. It was alot of fun and completely tailored to our tastes, including an offer to stop for groceries on our way back to the hotel. This was not at all necessary and very welcome as we didn't have a rent car. This tour is by far a better deal and better experience than the crowded bus tours that have become the norm. 100% Recommendation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much my friends! Henry
