  • The tour and guides were very informative. There were multiple tastings along the way to experience the variety of coffee blends! The guides were entertaining and took you through the entire coffee growing experience! The lunch was good and included, but purchasing a cold coffee drink was absolutely amazing! Highly recommend this. It is very close to San Jose and only a few hours of your day!

  • The tour guides were hilarious and very knowledgeable. It was one of my favorite tours!

  • This 'tour' was much shorter than I had anticipated and was more just hype to get you to buy from the VERY large store that the guides conveniently dropped you at when the tour had finished.
    That being said, they guides were awesome and kept my interest the whole time. I just wish that their could have been more practical learning we never even actually got to see a coffee plantation, everything was just staged.

  • Actual coffee tour was good - but it is more of a paid infomercial for Britt coffee to sell expensive coffee and chocolate.

    Would avoid booking through the Viator tour as the organizer is really bad at logistics and required at least six emails and still never confirmed address of pickup hotel. Driver was also not good and did the bare minimum.

  • Book all site seeing trips with this company, great service and would use again.

  • Awesome and learned many things about the coffee origination and processing.

  • I was in a tour with locals and even though I am fluent in Spanish. But there were times that I was lost because she was speaking in Slang and Costa Rican idioms. I learned a lot about coffee and even have a souvenir shop. You can find their coffee cheaper in a supermarket. The lunch was meh.

  • The coffee tour was great. The Britt tour showed the processing, discussed the coffee culture, and the guides kept it entertaining! The chocolate tasting shouldn't be advertised as only limited information and samples were provided.

  • This was a low key more commercialized tour. They did a good job of keeping you interested with the comradery of the two hosts. Seeing the coffee plantation field was my favorite part.

  • Great fun. Maria, the tour lead, was darling! Learned so much about coffee growing! Wonderful buffet lunch and the coffee and chocolate were divine. Nice butterfly garden next to gift shop/dining room. Parts of the tour were a little hokey, but all-in-all an experience not to miss.
