San Jose, Costa Rica
Too many passengers (12 and driver) were crammed in the van making it an uncomfortable ride to Tortuguero Park. (There were 5 less passengers on our return.) River was too shallow at this time of year (mid March). Although the cruise itself was enjoyable, the boat kept getting stuck in the water and one of the crew had to get into the water to push the boat forward. Tour narrator (Rosa) seemed indifferent and told us very little. She could have used the long waiting time on shore to explain about the turtles but she said nothing other than calling people "fat" and telling them that they had to sit at the front of the boat so that it wouldn't get stuck.
Lunch was excellent (both food and atmosphere). Our boat was late returning and we found that the only restrooms available on our return were locked. We saw a sloth and her baby traveling across a telephone wire on the ride home and the driver stopped so that we could take lots of photos. We narrowly missed a head on collision on the way home when our driver attempted to pass a truck in the dark and rain while we were driving through the cloud forest. We were all pretty shaken up. Didn't see any turtles but we knew that we wouldn't because of the time of year.
Cape Town, South Africa
This tour was great. Our guide was very flexible and accommodating to our needs since we were such a small group. We found the tour to be very informative and appreciated background information regarding the places that we were visiting.
New York City, New York
We really enjoyed this tour. If only the weather had cooperated (it was very cold and rainy). Our guide, Tom, was very engaging with his clients and provided us with a snapshot view of the many "must see" sights in New York City. I would have liked to have spent a little more time at some of the sites but that is a personal preference.
New York City, New York
Our guide was excellent. She was very organized and made the best of a very bad weather situation (it was extremely cold and snowing). Each stop was thoroughly explained. She also engaged her audience. Would definitely take this tour again.
