It was a wonderful group of people on the bus. The tour guide was friendly, personable and answered all questions...his knowledge of Costa Rican history and culture was much appreciated. One of the highlights of our trip, we loved the Baldi Hot Springs.

We had an amazing time! We learned so much about the local culture, agriculture, and the terrain. Our driver deserves an award and our tour guide was fluent in both english and spanish. The lunch stop was at a restaurant near the vollcano with beautiful views. The food was great. Our tour guide Mario always offered his help. Baldi Springs were exotic, clean and relaxing. My girlfriend and I were able to be alone in them because of the amount of pools they had. I feel like a kid again after flying down the water slides! This is a must do and made our trip a memory that we will share for a lifetime!

Our tour included stops at Sarchi, the Arenal Volcano and Baldi Hot Springs. The tour was everything we expected and more. Tour guide, Jorge, was an excellent source of information! He didn't just talk about the destinations, he shared a lot about the country and it's culture. Well-organized!

This tour went beyond all of my expectations. First, the tour bus was prompt and even earlier than scheduled. The tour guide was friendly and totally knowledgeable of the tour. We enjoyed a nice drive through many Costa Rica towns. The tour guide shared lots of detailed history about the vegetation, terrain, landmarks and places we passed on the way to the volcano. We had a delicious and hardy lunch at a wonderful restaurant with views of the Arenal Volcano. After lunch we departed to go to the volcano. The excitement built as we got closer to the site. The view of the volcano was breath taking. After taking pictures and enjoying the view we were on are way to the Hot Springs where we enjoyed all of the hot spring pools. A total relaxing experience. After, we had an amazing buffet dinner and then it was back to the hotel. I loved this tour, it was a great way to start my vacation. Absolutely Awesome...

For the price,you can not beat it. You spend the day looking at the country side plus the attractions. Lunch a dinner included. The food was excellent.

Pick up was punctual, Mario the guide is excellent. Knowledgeable and friendly. Meals are delicious, and the Hot Springs is a lot of fun. I was told it was the low season, so the hot springs aren't too crowded, but the loud music can be a little annoying. But just have to go to another pool or area. Arenal Volcano isn't as interesting especially if there are no more eruptions or lava to see. But for one that has never seen a volcano before, it is good enough. Value for money. It felt like a private tour, with just a few people.

Great tour! During the excursion we stopped at local gift shop, where things are much cheaper than anywhere else. Then, we moved towards volcano. The view was amazing, only several clouds. Hot springs were also great with variety of available pools with different temperatures. On the road we encountered some animals, so we stopped and made some pictures. Quality of the lunch and dinner was very good. I highly recommend this tour for people who travels in Costa Rica!
