Three of us went on a tour with Gabriel in March and I can't recommend him highly enough. He is knowledgeable, personable, and very accomodating. We needed to make a change in the time and in the pick up places and there was no problem. He was very nice. The boat safari is an amazing experience made even better by Gabriel's extensive knowledge of local nature. After the boat tour we had an excellent lunch at a nearby soda. Everyone was very friendly. Then we stopped in a few towns and we also visited a town known for its pottery where the artisans use the same 1000 year old process.

Gracias!!! This one was a last minute trip ,, for real , I contacted him around 9pm for a next day tour and he replied right away, and answered all of our questions. The trip was amazing!! He explained to us everything about the trail and took all of our pictures!! He gave us a full VIP experience.

Gabriel made this experience complete!!! My husband and i spent the entire day with him and while the zip lining, horse back riding, water slide, mud bath, and hot springs were all so so so so much fun... i think we enjoyed it most because of Gabriel’s hospitality. From the get-go i could see Gabriel was just so kind and genuine and you just immediately like him and want to be friends with him forever! He was trustworthy with our things, courteous, so incredibly knowledgeable and just went out of his way to make sure it was the best experience we could ever imagine. He picked us up on time, provided interesting information on Costa Rica, told us about all the great places to go and eat, and even let us stop and buy souvenirs for our family. I noticed we knew a lot more about each activity we did for the day more so than other groups because Gabriel always gave us a run down of everything and how it would work and what we would do. I really appreciated that! I think what i loved most was how kind he was helping us learn the language and just him opening up and sharing about his beautiful family. He has an amazing life story. I’m so incredibly happy for him and he deserves the world. The world needs more Gabriel’s that’s for sure! We highly recommend Gabriel as a custom tour guide. He will help create one of the best tours you will ever experience! We loved it so much we scheduled a different tour with him for 2 days later! Pura Vida!

Where to start with this amazing adventure! On time pick up at our hotel, clean can, safe driving and a guide who was so easy to talk to and he taught us about the land while driving up! Gabriel was super cool when we got there, took amazing pictures, translated the culture tour section for us and got us an amazing lunch! The food was AWESOME! Gabriel even did an extra stop for us to grab some souvenirs for our family! Such a wonderful guy and spoke amazing English! Highly recommend Gabriel!

We had an absolutely fantastic time with Gabriel. We went on a nice 2 hour hike through the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano. Gabriel was very knowledgeable of the area, the local trees and wildlife. He taught a lot of really good things to me two children age 17 and 11. Then we went to the Oropendola Waterfall. That was by far the highlight of the trip. What was nicest about Gabriel as a tour guide is he never made us feel rushed or on any type of a time schedule. He took great pictures for us during this part of the trip. We then had a nice buffet lunch, and then to the hot springs. The hot springs were so relaxing. When we got into his car for the ride home all three of us fell asleep!! A perfect day!!! And doing this trip with a private tour guide is absolutely the only way to go.
