The tour started off with a stop at a souvenir shop which included very rude sales people. The lady cheated me out of my change and told me it was no big deal maybe not to her. I would recommend Viator to find another souvenir shop besides this one. We left this location and had lunch at a very nice restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious! I was a little disappointed that we had a 20 minute stop at the volcano look out point. I was hoping to get closer to the volcano or at the very least have more of a tour about Arenal Volcano. Everybody on my tour went to Tabcon so I did too. I loved it! This tour was literally an all day event which worked for me.
The volcano was a bit under whelming as you only see it from far away but the view is beautiful and you can take lots of nice photos. Hot springs are in a nice five star hotel and the facility is very large with several warm pools. It is nice an relaxing and I had a good time.
First the best thing: we had an outstanding, helpful, safe driver whose skills and personality helped make a lengthy trip through often bad weather as comfortable as possible. Weather cannot be controlled so we do not consider this a reason for a less than positive review. On the other hand, there were 2 factors that we found extremely disappointing. The bus was OK overall not great but not awful but the microphone and sound system were substandard. 1 After repeated reports from multiple passengers that transmissions from our guide were undecipherable, the guide made some adjustments and , though of marginal quality, most but not all of the guides commentaries could be understood NOTE: we have normal hearing. 2 Upon reaching the walkway to the viewing platform near the volcano, the guide led us in the upward direction and failed to direct us first to the readily available walking sticks not in our site looking ahead toward our guide as they were behind where the bus had been parked. These were provided at no charge as aids for tourists and , as we met other groups after climbing to the top, we noted how many folks up there were using walking sticks. Though we're highly active, the slippery walkway for climbing was somewhat difficult to negotiate and left us wishing for an alternative pathway. Actually, there was an alternative as, on our way done, another guide leading others emerged from a side trail and told us that he'd taken his group on an alternative easier, less steep route which did not have workers redoing a large section of the main path upwards where our guide had directed us. If another guide knew this and accounted for the conditions to adjust the route for those in his group who preferred an alternative, it seemed striking that our guide either did not know of or chose not to mention that option. The Baldi Hot Springs were extremely enjoyable and dinner there was fine but our guide did little to help us find our way around the place or make sure that we were aware of all of the options. This was an important lesson for our future travels: opt for an individual guided tour from a reputable provider. We did not feel that this tour was worth what we had paid and this was not due to the weather - we're realistic, highly experienced travelers
