Very knowledgeable and fun. Great for families and adults. These folks are really good with people, and really know how to get kids excited about nature. I watched some of the other night tours in the area and this is likely the best one.

We went on this tour with our 11-year old son and we all loved it. Gian and Tracie were obviously extremely knowledgable and also seemed to enjoy guiding the rest of us in the secrets of animal night life in this part of the world.

We went along for the bug walk with Tracie and Gian. It was amazing, We only walked up and down the track that we have walked up and down lots of times in daylight, but They helped us to see it with new eyes. We saw so many different creatures, and Tracie knew so much detail and was able to... More

Tracie (the Bug Lady) and John were great!! - Very!!! knowledgable about the insects and small animals found at night. They both did a great job of finding and discussing many aspects about what was seen on our tour. John did a wonderful job with his spotting scope with the tablet attachment to easily share what he found for us.

My 11 y.o. daughter and I set off with Tracie & Gianfranco from Drake Bay Wilderness Resort one night in March, and got to see the paths that we used by day in a WHOLE new light. It was SUCH a great outing -- this part of the Osa is lucky to have a pair of guides with such passion... More

This was our second tour with 'Spiderwoman' Tracie, who fizzes with enthusiasm for her specialist subject, arachnids. She did not disappoint. Her tours are fun and she is wonderfully knowledgeable and engaging - a great teacher about the natural world generally but especially bugs. Don't miss.

We took our three daughters (ages 10, 12, and 14) on the bug tour during our stay at La Paloma Lodge. It was spectacular! Traci was so informative, and our children are still talking about all they learned. This is a MUST!!!! It is fascinating!!!!

My wife and I went on this tour in February of 2017. This guided tour of Drake Bay's night creatures far surpassed expectations. We saw all kinds of creatures on our walk. However it was the expertise of Tracy and her husband Gianfranco that really made this tour stand out. If your going to Drake Bay and want to learn... More

My family and I (kids aged 9 and 11) went on the Night Tour with the famous "Bug Lady" Tracie and her husband in mid December 2016 when we stayed in Drake Bay. It was one of the best tours we went on while in Costa Rica. Tracie and her husband are very experienced, knowledgeable and engaging whilst they take... More
