Awesome tour and operators
Was disappointed with viator as a booking agent because
tour came to pick me up an hour earlier than you told me at 5:30am and viator did not book my campions tour but did confirm and charged him for it so I had to go alone

This trip was amazing! We stopped several times during our trip to see sloths, bananas plantations and other animals. When we got closer to the national park, we boarded to the boat and then we had a pleasant river ride! The stuff was very knowledgeable about things around. We have seen myriads of birds, crocodiles, turtles, Jesus Christ lizards, monkeys, frogs and many many other animals! The surrounding is very beautiful out there. Breakfast and lunch were very good. On overall, I'd give 5 out of 5 stars for this trip!

Loved this tour - even if the turtles had already gone to the ocean a few months ago. The tour company - Jungle Tom Tours was very informative, the sightings where spectacular - I don't know how these people see some of these animals, and the stop for lunch was very good. Tomas and Rosalyn were great guides. I would highly recommend this tour, especially through the Rainforest

On this day was my birthday. Was the best birthday of my live, cause good english speaking guide, making many jokes, but also immense knowledge of the local animals, he stopped everywhere, to show us, many interessting animals. Was a perfect birthday. Five stars are not enough!

A MUST-DO if you want to see beautiful scenery, watch animals in their natural habitat, travel up a river to a small village with a beautiful beach and learn a lot about plants, history, animals, the ecosystem and much more. Frequent stops en route, good food and lots of photo ops. Tomas, operator and owner of Jungle Tom Safaris, who is passionate about his work, is probably the best guide anyone can hope for. I highly recommend this tour.

The tour itself was fantastic. We had a wonderful guide, Mario, and a wonderful driver, Binnie, and they made sure that we saw all the animals, scenery and shared information that was of interest. The park was lovely, the boat ride relaxing and we say sloths, crocodiles, a cayman, monkeys and lots of beautiful birds. Great day!

Booking the tour through Viator was frustrating. We booked online and the confirmation told us to call the local carrier, Grayline, to find out what time they would pick us up. We called, gave the confirmation number, and they immediately told us that there was no availability for the day we booked. The tour had to be rearranged to three days later and there was a risk that we wouldn't be able to go since we had planned our schedule based on the Viator availability. Please make sure your website is up to date so people don't end up disappointed.

Fantastic! Our guide was incredible and went out of his way to find wildlife for us to view; he even got up close and took pictures for us if we wanted help.

Although a long trip (ca. 12 h), I loved this trip. The guides were VERY knowledgeable and super friendly. There was lots of wild life to see and even on the way to Tortuguero the guides always were watching out for things to see by the road. They spotted e.g. a sloth just by the road side and gave us all the time we needed to take some pictures and observe. Although many hours a very relaxed trip.

The trip I took was fantastic! The guide was very knowledgeable and shared so much information about Costa Rica. I left feeling like I knew a lot about the country. The food was great, and the experience was stellar. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!

Amazing tour to the beautiful nature. We have seen lot of birds, crocodiles and monkeys but no turtles. Organisation was confused. Oozed with several groups and often we did not know whom to go. We could not contact local agency because the phone Nr. and e-mail address on the voucher was wrong. We were not ready in time for departure.
