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...
Absolutely wonderful. Gorgeous view. Lunch marvelous and the hot springs are fantastic!!! Guides and drivers are terrifc. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend and will take this tour again when I return with my family. Thank uyoi!
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.
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!
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.
Very good trip with chance to use the local hot springs. Nice guide
Excellent trip overall. Tour guide, Grabine aka Chuchu was very informative. From pick up to drop off, we had a good time. The servings in the prepared lunch plates was a bit small. Could improve on the portions a bit. The dinner was outstanding!!! The buffet was too good!
Highly recommend this tour.
Very nice tour, would recommend to anyone. The thermal spring resort was beautiful. Beautiful view of volcano. Beware of slide.
Breath taking views ...Several georgeous hot springs...this place is beautiful and the views from the volcano are awe inspiring..If you go toCosta rica you must visit Arenal!
This tour was amazing! We highly recommend it! We enjoyed the hot springs so much! Just a note: The $25 extra charge was worth it! Tabacon was the best!
It was a great trip! The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. The hot springs were fun but the visit to the Arenal Volcano outlook was the highlight. We got there just before sunset and took some amazing pictures. The food was very good as well. It is a long trip but worth it. Just don't expect the volcano to spew lava and throw a show. It is on a "calm" period and it is just smoking at the top but it is still spectacular.
This trip was great! The food was fantastic and we really enjoyed the hot springs and watching the volcano erupt. Overall, this trip was stellar!
Very nice trip ..our guide Gustavo was very knowledgable and gave us very interesting bits of the history of Costa Rica.The volcano and springs were awe inspiring to say the least.Definitely and experience you have to see with your own eyes to appreciate..Bring plenty of film or a digital camera and video as you will be snapping memorable photos all day long.
