We enjoyed our tour and excursion immensely and our highly recommend it to everyone! The price was lower than that offered on the ship excursion that left VERY early in the morning and needed a bus and large boat for the canal trip. Our tour was so much more personal..... we left at the time we selected, had only four of us in both the air conditioned van and on the canal boat trip! This private tour gave fabulous insight to areas most larger tours can not..... and Fabiana is extraordinary! Her knowledge of the area and the things to see is impressive! Don't miss this fabulous opportunity!!!!!
First let me say our particular guide was a wonderful gentleman of full of history and enlightening bits of interest about the region. But, our first experience was seeing that we could have booked this same experience on the dock area at the SylTraveler Kiosh for half the price! We paid 85 each and on shore 45 for the Tortuguero Canals Tour, Banana plantation, city tour. They hire local taxi's to take tourists to the various offerings. More importantly is that the guide was told where to take us, sort of and we had to fill in what else we were expecting to see. Including that we were to be allowed a stop for lunch. To his credit, our driver went back to the port and hunted down the owner of the excursion and let him know we were expecting more, for which the driver was then told to be sure and give us what we said we were to do, and of course the driver was happy to do so and he and we, felt the owner was trying to pocket extra cash by offering the driver and us less time for our excursion. We did do the canal tour, which was only slightly authentically in any rural area. Yes we did see a few monkeys in 1 tree, 1 sloth, an few birds, and what seemed like a rubber alligator in the tree line.... we also saw a small one in another shore area briefly. our guide offered little insights about the particular wildlife, such as their habits or traits. Just point and move on. The stop at the banana plantation was a brief stop roadside and a short walk into the banana field to see them growing and then the driver explained how it all worked when we asked enough questions. no real prepared tour or information beyond the lifecycle of the banana tree and harvest plan. All in all, our driver was charming and a pleasure, and the fact that it was a private drive and such, that made it enjoyable. Over priced.
