Traveler Reviews

    Oscar was a kind, knowledgeable and fun guide who was flexible in tailoring the tour to my interests. He is a good driver and took good care of me. Anytime there was a dispute, such as happened with Tabaccon Hot Springs changing their rules without notice, Oscar stuck with me until any and all issues were resolved. One of my favorite memories was an inpromptu stop at a local coffee shop/restaurant on the way back to San Jose, where coffee was made for me the old fashioned way, and fresh home made orange bread was also available for purchase. It felt like an authentic, rather than a tourist experience.

    Picked up from hotel and I asked driver if I was the first, he said I was the only. Great! Tour was great. We made brief stops at two places before heading to the town of Arenal for lunch at a nice restaurant before heading to the Tabacon Hot springs and then an overnight nice hotel before the adventures at hanging bridges and drive back. There was some change in drivers but all was good. They even went above and beyond to correct a confusion. Very satisfied with my private tour!
