We enjoyed a great experience from the pick-up to the drop-off at our hotel. Eric from Urban Adventures is a biologist who is not only knowledgeable about the fauna and flora, but also informative about the culture of the Costa Rican people. Viewing Toucans, Poison Dart Frogs, Lizards, Baird's Trogon, Agouti, and other animals was amazing as well as crossing the suspension bridge over the Sarapiqui River. Learning about and taking part in the chocolate-making process at the Tirimbina Center was a wonderful experience as well. We also enjoyed a delicious local cuisine lunch with Eric. All in all, I highly recommend this enjoyable all day tour.

Eric, our tour guide and interpreter, went far beyond our expectations. The tour was extremely interesting and entertaining. Eric is very knowledgeable about the rainforest and picked my daughter and I up from our
hotel on time and made our stay in Costa Rica memorable. We will, of course, return and request Eric as our
guide!!!!

This was a wonderful experience from the moment we were picked up at purr hotel till the time we were dropped off. Eric was so knowledge about CR and the rain forest. His guided tour thru the forest was an experience in itself. He was very easy to understand and offered a lot of information and history about the country. I wish we had met Eric our first day as I felt like our half day city tour was a waste- it was not with the company offered thru via tour, but thru a hotel desk. The chocolate tasting was presented better than. Any other I have had the experience of attending before. Highly recommend this tour.

Great day with Eric who is a biologist. We had an easy hike of the biological station (loved the suspension bridges) and saw some beautiful birds, white bats and a hummingbird sitting on her nest. The chocolate tasting was very well done and we finished up with a great lunch at a local Soda.

The excursion was one of the best in Costa Rica for me so far! Great friendly stuff, very small private group and outstanding locations! During this tour, I’ve seen more species of birds, mammals and reptiles than I’ve ever seen during my 10 days stay in Costa Rica! Different frogs, lizards, beetles, monkeys, caimans, iguanas, toucans, and dozens of different birds! I can’t enumerate all of the animals that I saw. Chocolate tasting was great: tons of facts that I didn’t know about it, and delicious raw chocolate tasting made everything better! Picturesque landscape around with sunny weather made this experience very pleasant. For lunch, we had a great buffet style meal with light salad and some pastry. For amateurs and connoisseurs of the nature and wildlife this tour would be perfect! And knowledgeable stuff with positive attitude made this experience unforgettable! Thank you a lot!

The only "problem" was 1/2 rainy day, but I knew November is the wettest of the year. Anyways, even the pickup locations were in downtown San Jose, my tour guide was extremely nice and picked me up from my hotel, located in Escazu. This tour was a lot more, it was almost a private customized day.
My tour guide, Mr. Eric Gomez was a 10+. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and flexible with the whole schedule. Tirimbina, rain forest biological reserve, was very interesting and informative. "Chocolate testing" was a lot more then testing, it was a full history, and a full presentation of chocolate making.
process in which we took part.
In short, I highly recommend this tour, Erick and Urban Adventures. Space and time does not allow to get into all details.
