    A great day doing the best activities in Arenal. Hanging bridges was superb, great to do with a guide the first time so as can spot the animals and birds (we went back the next day on our own). Quite a lot of walking (couple of hours) but in beautiful setting. Waterfall and swim was nice, quite a hike up and down (500 steps). Lunch great, in La Fortuna. Hike in Arenal Park was good, to a good viewpoint on lava flow, although quite short (only a kilometre or so). Overall, a very good day.

    Relaxing walk through the hanging gardens, and our guide was great at finding all the wildlife. Had a cool digital telescope that made for great viewing as we didn’t have binoculars.
    Hike to the volcano was nice - not too strenuous, and the La Fortuno waterfall is a must. Food was great too!

    Exciting day of hanging bridges, waterfall, and a volcano hike. Although it was raining most of the day it was super fun adventure.

    Fun tour with a great guide. Active, but not too tough. Beautiful scenery with the chance to see lots of animals in the wild!

    If you like a packed tour with various experiences, this would be your option. It was such a great experience to walk cross hanging bridges, watch animals in tropic rainforests. And the hiking was absolutely a great workout if you like to stay active. I was lucky to be the only guest of this tour, my tour guide and driver are super nice. Highly recommended.

    This is an exhausting but wonderful day. The hanging bridges are exhilarating and our guide Joshua was an expert at spotting tiny critters that we would have walked past without a clue. Very informative, funny and lots of fun. Were picked up promptly from our hotel, the driver was safe and respectful. Lunch was plentiful and delicious. Can't go wrong with this tour.

    This tour was absolutely awesome! It was the highlight of our trip! Our tour guide, Roy, was absolutely spectacular. One of the best tour guides we’ve had and we travel A LOT. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic and ready to answer any of the questions we had. Roy completely made the experience unforgettable. The hanging bridges were beautiful and we saw so many animals! Out of nowhere, Roy would hear a sound and know something was there. He’d pull out the spotting scope and find the animal. We saw frogs, birds, monkeys, and more! The waterfall was beautiful! We were able to swim there because the weather was great! However the water was cold, but that is fine! The food we had after was absolutely amazing. Casado became our favorite meal during our time in Costa Rica. After we hiked the volcano which was awesome to see. This tour is amazing and I will take a tour with this company again when we return! THANK YOU ROY!

    Just when you think this is a a few small hikes with a bird and a bat siting thrown in, BAM!...this is a sweaty, humid-drenched workout with animals and rainforest discoveries, hills, dripping forests, serious rock hiking, friendly cows, monkeys falling from trees, and a delicious lunch thrown in just for a few calories to survive til it all ends!...What a fantastic trio of explorations!

    Great tour. Waterfall was rough so couldn't swim near it but still got to swim in the out parts. No rain except towards the end. The restaurant we ate at accommodated me being vegan. I will say you will get a workout especially at the waterfall. 500 step step steps to climb and I do mean climb!! Randall was amazing and knowledgeable. He made sure we saw every bit of what costa rica had to offer. Will definitely be back.

    First let me say that the scenery and wildlife is beautiful having a professional tour guide is a must for a full experience of this country. Roy and Randall were our tour guides and were so knowledgeable about the animals, vegetation and history along every stop. It is obvious that they both love what they do and their enthusiasm makes the tours fabulous. We started at the hanging bridges, be prepared for a lot of walking and climbing steps, Roy spotted so many birds, insects and animals that we never would have noticed without him. Both guides bring along a telescope for you to see owls sleeping high up in the trees, families of animals walking along the rivers below the bridges. The photo ops are limitless.Next stop was the waterfall, again be prepared for many steps, over 500 down and 500 up! Lunch at a local restaurant was waiting for us on our arrive, traditional Costa Rican food of rice and beans, salad and a protein choice, very nice and simply prepared food.Off to the volcano for a hike up the volcanoes rock, a bit uneven stepping, but manageable. Randall explained the history of the eruption and mechanisms behind an active volcano, very knowledgeable. We had so many great photo opportunities along each stop of the tour. It’s a long physical day that is well worth the sore legs the next morning.P.S. - keep in mind you will need to be in good physical condition for these tours, we are a 56 year old couple and did just fine.
