Great tour

Many thanks to our great tour guide during this day. Very informative day, we saw sloths, he found a beautiful frog and I really liked the respectful way he treated the animals, the wildlife and his country.

Local flavor tour
David_P

Very good tour. Tour guide Adonys was well spoken, informative, humorous, and an overall nice guy. Good history of Costa Rica and Limon. Banana plantation was disappointing as we could only drive close to the fields. Beach tour was no more than having a 15 minute look-see. The river tour was pretty neat although the resident animals were difficult to see. The market tour was very good as we were able to sample fruits and other foods and do some shopping for local merchandise.

Dear David_P, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review! We are glad to know that you considered our tour very good as well as our tour guide. Unfortunately due to the banana disease Fusarium we cannot enter the fields due to mandatory phytosanitary restrictions and well being of the local economy. We are happy to know that you also enjoyed the tour even though animals, as you can understand, live on their own and move freely across the rain forest. If you ever come back to Costa Rica again don't hesitate in letting us know as it would be our pleasure to show you every detail of this beautiful country! Just access our website for information or write us directly to our email! Owner, Gian Carlo Granados

Amazing trip
James_P

This was a fun and informative excursion. Our guide was Jesus and he did an amazing job. We saw a sloth which had come down from a tree and got close up photos and videos of it walking on the ground before climbing up another tree. The boat ride on the canals was a little disappointing due to limited wildlife observations and lots of other boats around. Jesus grew up in the area and he took us out into the jungle a little ways where he found a strawberry dart frog to show us for up close photos. We highly recommend this excursion.

Dear James_P, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us a review! We are happy to know that you were able to enjoy the excursion and even see a sloth! As you understand sometimes wildlife may be complicated to spot as it moves freely but that's just part of been in the tropics and not a zoo! If you ever come back to Costa Rica again don't hesitate in letting us know as it would be our pleasure to show you every detail of this beautiful country!

Pablo & driver Jose were eager to share their city with us - stopping along the route to view wild monkeys and sloths in the trees - INCREDIBLE! Absolutely loved the cruise along Tortuguero Canal - spotted lots of wildlife. This was the best tour on our Panama Canal cruise!

Avoid at all Costs! False Advertising and total Bait and Switch.

Let me first note that the tour guides themselves were wonderful and had nothing to do with this falsely advertised tour. However, there was NO opportunity for any Rainforest hike as described in the tour description. In addition, when we arrived to the banana plantation, we were told that due to a long-running "fungus" affecting the banana crop, we were not allowed to get off the bus. Instead, we sat on the bus and looked at the entrance while being told about bananas. Choose this tour if you only want to sit on the Tortuguero Canals in a boat for 2 hot hours looking for wildlife. Really? We only signed up for this tour because it described "You'll also get an up-close look at Costa Rican wildlife like birds, monkeys, and frogs on A RAINFOREST HIKE and a boat safari down the biodiverse Tortuguero Canals." Too bad, there was NO rainforest hike. We would not have even signed up for this tour if we had known it was only a boat tour. And Viator has not been of very much help either. Do NOT go with GioTours unless you wish to be deceived.

We are truly sorry for the honest mistake in the description text in Viator. And we are also glad to find that your tour guides were excellent as well as mostly all of the tour was as described. In Costa Rica is truly hard to miss the rainforest and even if you didn't have the hike, you were, as you consigned two hours in the tropical forest, looking for wildlife. The banana fungi is not a story, it is a tragedy that is affecting the Caribbean plains plantations, and they are in quarantine. Not our choice, at all. But if we pass in, your shoes would have taken the disease abroad as it is very contagious and on rainy season the precautions are extremed. Unfortunately these situations are not predictable and our mistake was not updating fast enough our descriptions. If you are back in Costa Rica ever, please let us know, so that we can make it up to you. Owner, Gian Carlo Granados
