Senor George was outstanding. He took very good care of all of us. He was very patient and knowledgeable and took great care to answer all in details. Thanks a lot for showing your beautiful country to us.
It was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the stops, lunch, guide. Good driver as well.
The tour was fabulous, the driver Christian and guide Enrique were both wonderful. Enrique especially was so friendly, fun, knowledgeable, accommodating, and kind he made the whole thing work! His knowledge of plants especially made the botanical gardens part of the tour perfect.
Great trip! Lankester Gardens was beautiful and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Our lunch was very good in a perfect setting on a hill over looking a lake and garden. Everything about the day couldn't have been better.
Did not see much at volcano due to weather. The rest was great....absolutely beautiful at the gardens. Great lunch at beautiful restaurant.
The views at the volcano in the morning were fantastic. Who knew you could walk in volcanic craters? We couldn't see the lake in the bottom though so don't really expect the view shown. The Orosi Valley is full of gorgeous scenes - something wonderful around every curve in the road. Both churches we stopped at were awe inspiring both in beauty and age. THe lunch we had was absolutely fantastic and the view from the restaurant was marvelous. Really enjoyed being outside in the Lankester garden enjoying the outdoors and all the plants. THere was a lot of driving around and it often felt like we were driving in circles around the valley but it was a beautiful drive.
Driver was very safe and knowledgeable, and our guide was great. He gave concise descriptions of what we were going to see, then gave us time to explore the sites on our own, all the while making sure he was available to answer questions if we had any. Lunch on a coffee plantation was tasty and the scenery was breathtaking. Lankester gardens was well worth the visit.
This was my first tour in Costa Rica. We were lucky that we went on a very sunny and clear day. We took some great pictures and walked in the crater of the volcano. It was very cold at Irazu. You definitely need a jacket.
We stopped at a beautiful restaurant by a man made lake. The food was great, the desert was great and the coffee was the best I have had in Costa Rica. I actually bought some to bring back home.
Our guide was great. he spoke both English and Spanish. This tour is worth its money with hotel pick up and lunch.
Miza our guide made this trip awesome, he kept us entertain while driving through scenic views. Orosi Valley picturesque, Irazu is like you are stepping in on a different planet.
Scenery on way up to volcano is stunning. Church was beautiful as were the Lankester Gardens. Miza is an excellent, very enthusiastic guide and a safe driver.
A great experience with a highly educated guide. The weather was perfect and the views spectacular. We were only three people on the tour, the van was comfortable and the lunch was very good. I never felt rushed and our guide was always there to answer any questions. We made several stops on the way, and there were many opportunities for photo shoots. A great tour and I highly recommend it.
Great trip. The ruins and church was good to see. The valley had a breathtaking view and the volcano was spectacular. Recommend taking a sweater or a light jacket.
This tour was absolutely striking! The volcano was magnificent! Orosi Valley was charming! Lankester was fantastic! Gina, our tour guide, was so entertaining! We highly recommend this tour!
The tour guide was very friendly and had a lot of knowlege about Costa Rica. I am going to use Viator for my future trips.
This was one of our favorite days. The volcano has a lot less traffic than Poas and was, in my opinion, more beautiful. Plus we enjoyed the other items paired with Irazu. The Lankester garden is definitely worth it!
The tour was absolutely delightful. If you get car sick very easily, I recommend you bring some medication with you. The restaurant was excellent, the tour guide and driver were great. The locations visited were wonderful. I would highly recommed this tour!!!
Tour guide was knowledgeable and perfectly billingual. Organized and on time. Highly recommend.
The tour was excellent in most respects but let me down with regards to the weather. We could see nothing on top of the volcano due to clouds, which was a real shame. Not anyones fault but from speaking / reading reviews, it appears to be more systemic than perhaps is advertised. Well worth it still. My advice: Check the weather forecast before booking. I only had the one day so didnt have the luxury.
Really great tour guide. Lots of information. Nice tour with a variety of sites. Great lunch in a beautiful location was a real surprise.
Not as impressive as it sounds in the description. Well informed tour guide!
Trip was good. Our tour guide Mr. Daniel was nice and new his job well. He could be a good Botany teacher the way he explained plant life. Lunch was good and on time. Only Hassel we had, they came to pick us up at 6:30v/s 8:30 web.st time. Missed breakfast shower and rush rush. Still loved it.
This was a lovely half day tour and we needed it since we had 5 other days of very long trips. However there has not been water in the volcano for 8 years.
I went there during the rainy season and unfortunately couldn't see much on top of the volcano... However, I think it's a great 1-day-tour to see a lot of the different and beautiful countryside. The Lankester garden on its own is worth the trip - very impressive!
