    This was a great tour for our family and a great start to our Costa Rican adventure. They picked us up at our hotel in a shuttle type bus and had a guide that spoke English and Spanish. All the stops were informative and fun. We enjoyed this entire day. The breakfast and lunch were wonderful. The sites were beatiful. Really loved the Mariposaria in La Paz Gardens. The Poas Volcano crater was amazing! The coffee tour was fun, and we bought some chocolate covered coffee beans we enjoyed the rest of the week. Do this tour! You won't regret it.

    This was a great tour and worth every penny. Isla Tortuga and Isla Alcatraz is a must see when visiting Costa Rica. The trip takes you through the scenic countryside into Puntarenas where you will take a boat ride to Isla Alcatraz. The island has many attractions such as hiking, snorkeling, volleyball, swimming, drinks and a gift shop. Plan on spending 14+ hours on this adventure.

    This trip involved so many more stops than they advertise. We were pleasantly surprised!! Even though you leave very early the time goes by fast because of all the stops and things to do. Harlem is so passionate and informative and fun!! And our driver Christian was a boss - handling those Costa Rican roads like a pro!

    In my review, if you’re not excited for this trip you will be as soon as you step into the van with Francini. She and Alan made the trip—stopping throughout the trip to see wildlife and getting everyone really excited about it.

    It was a long day, but we got to see many different animals— deer, moneys, macaws, sloths, tree frogs, and more! Francini was quick to point out every opportunity and refused to let us miss any opportunity to see something great.

    The ocean was beautiful. But the wildlife is what made the trip worth it.

    Francini and Alan are seriously the best!

    The tour was wonderful, we cannot recommend enough. Oliver took care of us and made sure we were where we needed to be at the right times. It is very well organized, the food was great and plenty. We did the Tortuguero National Park Tour which is stunning, we saw monkeys, sloths, many birds and also cayman. The guides really take their time to help locate the wildlife for viewing.

    We did the turtles which I recommend as a once in a lifetime thing. We were very lucky and saw babies running to the sea and a mama laying her eggs and burying them and another mama going back out to sea after she was done , it was magical! It’s a separate tour that you book at the hotel when you are there.

    We stayed at Pachira Lodge which is beautiful. I was most impressed by how all the tour companies and the hotels worked together . The windows of the huts are only screened, they are small and close together. So not much privacy if that’s your thing . Very cute and well designed which is what I noticed ! No air conditioning as you are really in the rain forest, but it felt fine it’s an adventure! Lots of wildlife around the hotel grounds which is part of the tour also. There was a large sloth 2 huts down which was a treat!

    All was wonderful ♥️🇨🇷

    Our guide for the tour this morning, December 2nd was knowledgeable and delightful. He was patient and answered ALL of our questions!
    He worked REALLY HARD to find us a sloth which he did considering they were very elusive this particular morning.
    He was enthusiastic and showed us so many different birds, their nests, ants, fungi (his personal favorite) and bees.
    We thoroughly enjoyed our walk and would highly recommend this walking tour.

    The tour guide was amazing! We went on this trip during Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. Our guide was super helpful, was extremely knowledgeable, and was super kind and supportive whenever we had request. If and when I go back to Costa Rica, I'm going to reach out to the guide.

    I loved the central market! What a fascinating experience. I only wish we had more time to spend there. The gold museum was beautiful and interesting and the lunch was delicious. Learning about the history of the country was so educational and I just can’t say enough about this tour. Jordan was a fantastic tour guide, and I would highly recommend any tourist take this tour. You won’t regret it!

    Im glad I went to this very adventurous activity and it happened like a private tour because I was the only one who booked for the afternoon slot, lucky me! Right? 😄 It was all well and so much fun with my tour guides, Alejandro and Dylan! They were very helpful, gave the much needed instructions for safety and we also chatted randomly on our way on what else I could do to enjoy Costa Rica. They are very knowledgeable to what they do, friendly, confident and always make sure that you're safe and at the same time having fun! Kudos to you guys and I will definitely do it again with you in the future if I will come back to costa rica! I really had an amazing time! 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

    I had a wonderfull day , travelling alone (49years old, female). Very save arrangement from hotel pick-up to coffee Plantage, and waterfalls. Nice small group of 8 people. And absolute warm- heart guides: thanks to Ronny stopping the car when seeing in nature Living sloths❤️🦥. I recommend this Tour 100%. I booked four weeks in advance from Germany. All very easy.
