Reliable and excellent. Always on time. Good quality vehicles and drivers who spoke very good English. These drives gave us the chance to see a lot of the country while getting a lot of local information from the drivers. Edward Sanchez was an experienced guide who gave us great insights.

I booked two day trips from San Jose, one to La Paz and one to Manuel Antonio. The tour guides were great, friendly and so interactive. Food was lovely too. The sights were great despite the never ending rain (October). I was very happy with the bookings!
