Felipe a top notch guide for the Gold trail tour
, Feb 2020
Our guide Felipe was superb. His enthusiasm for nature is infectious. We have been on previous rainforest adventures but Felipe was the tops. Felipe has total command of the English language and his knowledge of the local history, plant life and animal life was exceptional. He used his keen senses to look for birds and his cellphone bird long app to draw them to closer viewing distance. If you do this tour I would recommend asking for Felipe. This tour was simply amazing. Dennis Anderson & group. Should anyone have any doubts feel free to personally reach out to me at
