Great trip, knowledgeable guide, and wonderful sights. The food was excellent! However, as I was staying at the hotel that was the last stop for the morning pickup, the only remaining seat was in the cramped back seat of a microbus, and it was not a very comfortable ride. Otherwise it was great.
This was a great trip. Our guides were excellent, the trip was timed well, and everything was excellent.
The tour was well run, the guide was great, pretty good value. We went to the Doka coffee plantation first and had a good breakfast (typical local food). We went to the Poas volcano second, and it was all clouded in (we knew this was a possibility) so we couldn't see the crater at all, it was worth a try. Then we went to the La Paz waterfall gardens (included a good buffet lunch there). The butterfly and hummingbird gardens were great, the waterfalls were cool, the animal enclosures for the cats were a bit small and very zoo-like (it is obviously a successful business, so I would like to see them expand the habitats for the bigger animals).
Good tour. Good value for money. Would recommend it to anyone with limited time wanting variety.
one of the best tours..have to bring some snacks though because breakfast is not much, but it all make up with the lunch buffet. Ricardo is a wonderful guide
It was a very nice tour. But we were not lucky with the weather, couldn't see the volcano at all...Beautiful waterfalls garden with great lunch and very interesting visit to the coffee plantation. Nice day, but not the great one. Thanks anyway!
Great tour. It was raining all day, so couldn't see the volcano. La Paz was wonderful. Oliver was a great tour guide.
Great tour and our tour guide was wonderful and very knowlegable.
Very informative tour. If you could throw a zipline in there somewhere you would have the perfect tour. Anna Lucia, the tour guide, was great. Breakfast and Lunch were good.
Most interesting history of the City, probably because guide, Jason was so extremely knowledgeable. The big turn off was at end of tour when they brought us to a jewelry store to shop.
perfect day trip for a little bit of everything. coffee plantation was interesting, poas volcano really neat and la paz waterfall / nature center was beautiful. with breakfast and lunch included it is a great value. the driver and guide were terriffic.
I got to see a lot around the Alajuela region. I don't know if this is "the best of Costa Rica." The meals were good as well. We were lucky to see most of the crater of the Poas volcano, but pay attention to the forecast before you book. We were lucky to finish La Paz before it started pouring down.
Very good tour - three sights you don't want to miss! Be prepared to meet lots of crowds at Volcan Poas, especially if you go on a weekend. I've been on both the Doka and Cafe Britt coffee tours, and I have to admit that the Cafe Britt one is much more entertaining.
