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.

It was organized very well, with nice people and a lot of information about Costa Rica
My family was very pleased. Great driver and tour guide. Would do again.
Unique experience, I will go back and take family members so they can experience it.
Nice tour, loved the view and really enjoyed the Baldi hot pools, very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide.
We were able to see the whole volcano, and the hot springs were great. The food was excellent too.
Too bad it was cloudy and unable to see the top of the volcano. But the warm springs were great.
Highly recommend the volcano and hot springs tour. Easy trip from San Jose.
Pleasant, knowledgeable guide. Excellent food and indescribable beauty.
Fansastic tour! I met some nice people and really enjoyed every part of the tour. I think the hot springs was the star of the tour, however, in my opinion, they could quite easily cut down the time spent in the springs by an hour. I think we had 3 and half hours, which I think was too long and this meant that we didn't back back to San Jose until around 10:30pm. Bearing in mind that we were picked up at 6:30am in the morning, it felt like a day and a half. I enjoyed it though.
The guide Maria was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. She did a great job. Arsenal was beautiful and the Hot Springs were wonderful.
enjoyed seeing the beautiful countryside and towns on way to volcano. Good lunch at Rancho Pearle Restaurant Baldi Spa was excellent. Met expectations based on Viator's descriptions.
This tour was awesome. My only complaint is that we were not able to spend more time in the hot springs.
this was a lovely tour. The tourguides were friendly and I especially enjoyed the hotsprings waterpark! Never did I think my childhood would be rekindled like that! make sure that the day isnt cloudy when u are goin to visit the Volcano...or else the volcano may not be fully visible. :)
COULD ONLY SEE ABOUT 1/3 OF ARENAL AS IT WAS EXTREMELY CLOUDY AND MISTING RAIN. THE 2 MEALS WERE VERY GOOD WITH LUNCH BEING ALA CARTE AND DINNER AT ALBI HOT SPRINGS RESORT WAS A 5 STAR. YOU WON'T REGRET GOING TO THIS.
