Excellent tour guide. Wonderful tour companions from different countries. Beautiful tour stops with amazing information from a guide knowledgeable in the history and current cultural setting of Costa Rica. Comfortable tour bus. Amazing tour pricing. A genuine concern for the benefit of the local community and economy.
If you are in San Jose and have just limited time to get the flavor and soul of Costa Rica, this is the tour to take. From coffee, to the volcano edge, to the amazing walk though the La Paz Waterfall Garden/Peace House, this definitely worth the fee and time.
Tour was great!! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about everything. Doka Coffee fields were very interesting, beautiful scenery while driving to poas volcano, which was the only disappointing thing, because we were not able to see the crater due to clouds. Only 30% of people get to see it!
This tour was awesome! It was very well planned. We had plenty of time at each activity. I totally recommend it.
This was our favorite tour while in Costa Rica. We visited Doka Coffee Estate and were fed breakfast, which was great. We toured the estate, tasted coffee, and saw where all the magic happens. Then we went to the Poas Volcano and it was awesome! It was foggy when we arrived, but maybe two minutes later the fog moved and we were able to get some great pictures. After that, we went to the La Paz Waterfall Gardens and ate lunch a-MAZ-ing, by the way- lots of variety. The views of the waterfalls were breathtaking and the tour of the wildlife and plants was awesome as well. Our tour guide, Chewy can't think of his real name, was outstanding! We wanted to keep him for our whole vacation. You must do this tour!
We got to see so many more things on this tour than we would have just traveling on our own. Everything was so beautiful and our guide had so many interesting facts for us. The food was great as well.
Worth every penny! The best tour I have been on. You get to see/do a little of everything. It helped that I had an awesome guide (Eugenio) and driver. Be prepared for a long day but it and #39;s all well timed and organized. Easy flow from one activity to the next. My favorite was La Paz Waterfall Gardens!
My wife and I went on this tour yesterday and highly recommend it. The only concerm prior to our trip is one shared by another member of our tour group. We both had read an earlier review that the tigers were kept in too small of an enclosure. We imagined that they were being kept in small cages reminiscent of the early 1900's and were relieved to see them housed in beautiful large areas complete with waterfalls. We both expressed our disgust that anyone would suggest anything negative about their housing conditions.
Eugene was our tour guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. One note of encouragement. Step outside of your comfort zone if needed and take the initiative to get to know the members on the tour with you. We did on this and our Viator tour the day prior which made the tours much more enjoyable. We got to know a wonderfully eclectic group of people on both tours and reallt enjoyed our few hours of shared time and experiences together!
I have been on this tour twice. I loved it both times. I recommend it to anyone coming to Costa Rica.
Great trip with experienced guide and driver. A lot crammed into a single day and well worth the time and money.
We saw the Poas Volcano crater with no clouds when we first arrived, but it very quickly clouded up, so timing is everything, We were lucky but the earlier you get to the crater the better.
Not many people can say they have stood on top of an active volcano, but it was fabulous. Also the Le Paz waterfall gardens were great. 5 big waterfalls at least by UK standards.
My wife and I had a great day.
I did three tours in Costa Rica, and this was my favorite! The weather was perfect, the food was good, and the scenery was gorgeous! I loved the diverse activities of the trip and would highly recommend it. Bring a jacket for the volcano portion.
The whole experience was awesome but it could have been better if it wasn't raining at the volcano. We also meet so great people while on tour who we go to share our Costa Rican coffee with.
Definitely a full day of site seeing. Driver and guide were very helpful and managed our time well. However, major traffic on our return. Not the fault of the tour. Last group arrived at their hotel after 7:00.
Very interesting and rewarding tour, particularly if you are on a business trip and have only little time to spend like I did. Our guide Max was very knowledgeable and pleasant, and a real coffee afficionado having a lot to tell about coffee growing and coffee production. He also had a good knowledge about the people and socioeconomic situation of Costa Rica, which I particularly liked, because I also learned about the people and history of the country. The trip goes to touristic highights, so you are, of course, not alone - but there never was the feeling of overcrowding. The main criticism does not concern the tour, but the way the jungle cats are kept in cages - they are much too small, and a country proud of its ecological focus should not keep animals for shows in this way not appropriate for these species.
This was an excellent trip, although it was foggy and rainy on top, and we were not able to see the craters, there was so much to see and do.coffee plantation, waterfalls, wildlife sanctuary, to name a few. Our tour guide was knowledgable and informative, and answered many questions. If you enjoy being on the move, I highly recommend this tour!
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.
Poas Volcano is beautiful! This tour is a MUST DO!!! The day was perfect! Then La Paz Waterfalls are amazing!
The highlight of our 7 days in Costa Rica. Glad we did this. Talked other people we later met into taking this tour.
