A must tour. We seen a variety of things such as the Coffee Plantation. That was so informative and beautiful. The breakfast was very good to and able to sample various coffee blends. The Poas volcano was awesome. The sanctuary was so beautiful and interesting. Take your camera because there are many great photo ops. The buffet lunch was very good. Our tour guide and driver were awesome. Highly recommend this tour as you will be able to see many things in a day.

IWe covered a lot of nice places during the day. The waterfalls were impressive. I also enjoyed the coffee plantation and going to the mini zoo. The only thing to be aware of is that you might not see the volcano and the lake due to the weather. In our case it was too foggy, and we could not see anything, but still it was good to go.

Superb! We went on a good day and was able to see the crater completely. Also, loved the Doka coffee plantation and waterfall gardens.

This tour squeezed a lot of great activities into a single day, making it ideal if you only have time for a single day of touring Costa Rica. It had moderate amounts of walking, which although tiring, add to the fun!
Our guide Eugene and driver Jorge were great!

The best tour I did during my visit to Costa Rica. It was amazing being so close to this volcano and the entire tour had a lot of interesting elements, including the coffee tour which I enjoyed. Lunch was great and the variety of animals we saw were just fabulous and we had time to take photos which was very nice too. Highly recomended!

This was an awesome trip and i'm so glad I booked it. To begin with, our tour guide, Eugenio, was awesome. He provided us so many details about each place we went, Doka coffee plantation, Poas Volcano and the La Paz Waterfalls, butterfly exhibit and wildlife refuge. He spoke excellent English. He encouraged us not to give up easy while looking at the Main Crater at Poas because the clouds usually clear after a bit and you can see the water. We ended up seeing the water just like the photo. Also same for the Ancient Crater laguna. Very beautiful. It was all amazing and a great day. The hiking at Poas and the waterfalls were fairly easy and could be accomplished by most people.

This was a great tour and a highlight of my time in Costa Rica. I would highly recommend it to anyone. We started with a nice breakfast at the coffee plantation then an interesting tour of how coffee is picked and processed. We then drove up through beautiful cattle farms, strawberry growing fields and small villages with amazing valley views to the Poaz volcano. There was a short, pleasant walk in the cool air up to the rim of the volcano where we saw the crater and smelled the sulfur. Next was the rainforest preserve for a great buffet lunch and a walk through the animal rescue center. I held a toucan on my arm, saw lots of birds, parrots and macaws as well as monkeys and large jungle cats that had been rescued from private owners who could no longer care for them. The butterflies were beautiful and it was so much fun being buzzed by hummingbirds in the hummingbird garden. We then walked down through the rainforest to see three beautiful waterfalls. There were a lot of steps, mostly down but a bit of a climb back up at the end, but I didn't feel rushed, so I went at my own pace and rested as needed. These could be difficult for someone with mobility issues, but I am not in perfect shape and had no problem. The waterfalls were full with all of the rain and were so worth the climb. Thank you to our guide Jorge for showing us the secret of the magic falls. One good thing about this tour is that the ride back to the city was about 1 12 hour which is shorter than the other tours I took. I arrived back at my hotel around 6, in time for dinner and not so exhausted from the drive. I have already recommended this tour to other travelers as a great day and a great value.

This was a great tour! Our guides were entertaining and had a lot of information. Unfortunately, it was raining and cloudy and we couldn't see any of the volcano. But the coffee tour was great and we got soaked but loved the cascades! The animals were sooo awesome and the breakfast and lunch was good! Great time

This tour have it title Best of Costa Rica !!! The bus was comfortable, tour guide was informative, honest and sense of humor. The hike to the Volcano crater was enchanted path. Water fall was magnificent because it was 120 feet high and you can be so close to the water fall. Hummingbird and butterflies gardens were magical. Lunch was great and so much foods. Coffee plantation tour contained a lot of information from planting, harvest, process to coffee. It make me appreciated a cup of coffee more.

This tour was great on every level and seemed an exceptional value. Our guide Jorge provided background in English and Spanish, and each location went beyond my expectations in interest and beauty. The view of Poas was exceptional we had a break in clouds to a breathtaking view and enjoyed the short walk up. La Paz was absolutely amazing, the wildlife healthy and accessible, and the food excellent. The waterfall trail was somewhat strenuous many steps but so worth the effort. A wonderful group, and a truly wonderful day.

This was a wonderful tour! The Doka Coffee Plantation tour was wonderful and very informative. There was a wonderful 60 minute hike that we took to the volcano crater unfortunately the weather was completely cloudy and we couldn't see into the crater but the hike was incredible! The food on this tour was the best I had especially the lunch. And the butterflies were amazing! Highly recommended tour!

This was a good tour. It took us out of the City and up the mountain to the Volcano. We then decended the mountain and had activities planned the entire way. Then we toured the waterfall park and ended up at the government buildings and walking through various parts of San Jose. A great tour to get a feel for the City and the culture.. I highly recomend the tour. Excellent guide. We found out many things that we would not have found out any other way.

Fantastic combination of tours! Unfortunately unable to see the crater or lake due to clouds/fog at Poas, but La Paz and Doka Estates were great. We were able to make the hike for the waterfalls a bit more challenging by going to every single landing and moving at a quick pace which was nice.
