  • It was absolutely horrible!!! The tour guide was not friendly and got annoyed at my friend and made her nervous because she returned her towel at the hot springs to the attendant not the tour guide. And about the hot springs..... it wasn't a hot springs at all. It was a water park that had hot bath tub like water that you enter and exit each ride We didnt even see a volcano. Nothing was pointed out to us that there was a volcano. A small child threw up in the back of the bus. The rain forrest was extremely boring. Our tour guide was boring and we didnt see any animals. The only cool thing was the suspension bridge and Im afraid of heights anyway! Horrible Horrible trip! Wish I could get my money back!

  • Interesting trip

  • Great time, Alejandro was very knowledgeable as a guide, and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

  • Freddy, our guide, made this trip fantastic. He knew history, geography, flora an fauna. Well spoken and well traveled. Would take a tour with him anytime anywhere. Some minor confusion about lunch and dinner, but Freddy was in contact with some one during the whole trip and made it all work. A real professional !!!!!

  • Amazing scenery. The drive is long, but they stop for lunch and dinner. I really enjoyed the Baldi hot springs, and just seeing the area. However, there is very little about the actual volcano - we just drove past it, and since it's quiet now, there wasn't much to see. Some members of our group did the zip lining and said it was the most amazing experience of their lives - the lines are long and very high up, so they said it was just like flying. I went on the nature walk, which was not as much fun, and a bit strenuous. Some places are steep and require you to step on an off rocks. If you can easily step up onto a kitchen chair, you'll have no problem. If you can't, don't go on this hike.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • This tour was well worth the money. We saw beautiful scenery along the way and the volcano was magnificent. Our guide Hugo was very nice and knowledgeable. The hot springs were simply awesome. Great trip!!

  • be advised: it's not a real climb to the volcano, and not 'real' hot springs! Still an unbelievable experience, but you're seeing volcano from a distance (rain forest = clouds!), and the 'hot-springs' is an artificial one, within a hotel's water park…

  • Our tour guide was very knowledgable. I expected the Hot Springs to be in a more natural setting instead of at a resort so I was a little disappointed.

  • This tour had a bad start from the very beginning. We we're suppose to be picked up from our resort on Monday morning and no one showed up. When called they said they didn't receive our reservation even though we had the confirmation number and did call to reconfirm on Sunday. After a long rough argument they booked us on next day with some other tour. Did not see any volcano or anything close to it. We saw some mountains far away and was told that's the volcano but covered with clouds. Certainly not worth wasting money with this company. They don't deliver what they write on their website. Big disappointment.
