Henry did a great job creating a custom cultural tour for our family. He was understanding and adaptable when we had any requests. It was great to see non touristy sites and cities with a true local guide. Thank you Henry!!

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 was an excellent guide. Knowledgeable, friendly, and punctual. We had a large group with all ages and he kept us all entertained. He even stopped along the drive when he saw a sloth, so we would all get the opportunity to see through his telescope. We had a wonderful time.

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.

It was fantastic. We had a family of 6 with young adults. Henry was extremely knowledgeable about the land, history, culture, and the animals/ plants and birds. The locations he choose were less touristy and filled with rainforest wonders. Would highly recommend.

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.

It was our privilege to tour w/ Henry for three days in Costa Rica. We have a particular interest in nature, gardens & the environment. He customized the days to meet our interest. He is knowledgable in all of these areas, & provided us excellent insights. Assisted by his driver, Dennis, we traveled safely & widely in exploring the area. He is an exceptional guide & a delightful individual.

If you intend to visit a rain forest in Costa Rica, Henry should be your guide. He has a degree in ecology and natural history and will continuously surprise you with his knowledge of the creatures and plants of the forest, everything from the ants to the toucans to the trees! Truly a delightful man as well.

Scheduled two days with Henry G as guide. He was accompanied by his brother, Denny who drove and who is an excellent driver. Henry is pleasant, knowledgeable, low key, and attentive. His personality is perfectly suited to the challenging job of working in a variety of situations. I highly recommend Henry and Denny. They were prompt, polite, and eager to accommodate.

We really enjoyed our day with Henry and his brother Dennis! Henry has a calm, humble and quiet nature and is so knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of Costa Rica. We learned so much on our private, personalized excursion near the start of our time in Costa Rica that really gave us a wonderful back drop for the rest of our time in the Guanacaste Provence. The day was enjoyable and educational. Thank you Henry and Dennis!

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!

Henry was ABSOLUTELY fantastic as a guide! Not only is he knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, but also shared with us some history of Costa Rica. It is also very apparent how much Henry enjoys the animals one can see on his tours. An amazing experience I would recommend to anyone! Thank you, Henry!

We spent a memorable day with Henry and his brother (driver). Henry has a degree in ecology and loves sharing his country and insights - its not boring canned tour - but a REAL adventure. He shared his high end spotting scope and located examples of wildlife at every stop. Our lunch stop was a traditional Costa Rican casado - the local tilapia was incredible - and fresh fruit juices were super refreshing. An incredible value for our family of four. We hope to return again soon!
