What a fun way to spend an evening

We (my wife & I) went with Tracie & Gian on their Bug Tour. It had been a miserable, rainy day but the night was mercifully dry & we had a terrific time.

It rained on our night tour but the heavy foliage kept us relatively dry. We saw all sorts of insects, amphibians, and other animals. It was such a unique and truly fascinating experience to have Tracie and Gian show us creatures that we would miss by not looking up into the trees or down on the ground. It's clear that... More

This was an outstanding experience. Very informative and a true lesson in slowing down to take in what is around you.

This is a fabulous tour & I can understand why it gets booked out. Tracie and Gianfranco are a great team. One is telling you about something they have found whilst the other scouts ahead to find the next thing. We saw lots of things that we would have walked by. Gianfranco spotted a tiny red eyed frog high up... More

The tour is run by Tracie and her husband. They make a good team, one is usually explaining what we are seeing while the other looks for what we will see next. We saw cool insects, frogs, reptiles, kinkajous and a sloth. They have a nice telescope that they connect to their tablet so that you can see everything very... More

Tracie and Gian are professionals who provide a great experience. While one of them is showing you a creature, the other is scouting ahead to find the next, in order to provide a seamless experience. Their iPad/spotting scope setup ensures that everyone sees creatures that are further away. So fascinating to see the things that you would otherwise just walk... More

I highly recommend this tour! It is so unique. Everyone is given headlights and you walk through the jungle with Tracie and her husband. It is incredible how many insects and wildlife they can spot that a regular person would never notice. We saw scorpions, numerous spiders, frogs, an opossum, two sloth. They are both so knowledgeable and entertaining! When... More

A visit to Drake Bay would not be complete without a tour with Tracie and her husband. We learnt so many interesting insect facts, saw so many interesting spiders, a scorpion, sloths, and other fascinating creatures. I booked directly with emailing from the website, doing it this way gets you all the relevant information on where exactly to meet and... More

This was one of the best tours we had in Costa Rica. Tracy and Gian really live for this tour and give you a great time walking through the forest at night. They make a great team in finding interesting and fascinating nocturnal animals (spiders, scorpions, bugs, frogs, bats, Opossums, and many more) and they have an immens knowledge. Thank... More

I am a big fan of night walks, and this one was one of the best. Tracie and Gian were very friendly and enthusiastic about all the animals we encountered. Tracie and Gian work together, with one of them talking about an animal, while the other is looking ahead for the next one. There wasn't any down time where we... More
