    It was very easy to find Edgar. He was friendly and helpful. He got us to our destination safely. We couldn't be more pleased with the drive.

    We actually hired this firm to pick us up from our hotel in downtown San Jose and drive us to our resort in La Fortuna as well as the reverse trip one week later. We couldn't be happier with Ronnie, our driver. Ronnie is so much more than a driver -he's an experienced tour guide and we received the full benefit of his knowledge. He was an interesting and entertaining companion throughout the 3-hour drive each way, sharing his stories and the history of Costa Rica. We simply wouldn't have learned as much or had as rich a visit to this country had we rented a car on our own. Ronnie also went out of his way to show us attractions on the route, including a beautiful waterfall. You cannot go wrong with this company or this driver.

    We stayed in La Fortuna for the month of September and used these guys for both transfers to/from SJO. Both Gerald and Ronnie were delightful to ride with. They were friendly and informative. Both spoke very good english, but they didn't mind helping me with my spanish. Definitely recommend.

    My wife and I agreed on Costa Rica as our honeymoon destination, but we needed affordable and reliable transportation between the places we chose to visit since the distance between them were in the 3-5 hour range. I came across Costa Rica Trip Guide and after going through the reviews I decided to give them a try, I'm glad I did! Eric and his team are really professional, punctual, and friendly (great good people). We booked 3 private transfers: 1 - San Jose Airport to La fortuna/Arenal 2 - La Fortuna/Arenal to Manuel Antonio 3 - Manuel Antonio to San Jose Airport All of them were flawless, can't say enough about the level of excellence service they provide. Eric responded all my messages within the second and was willing to assist with any questions or concerns I had. Eric and his team definitively earned my trust, respect and friendship. I recommend 100% this company to anyone visiting CR looking for a reliable and affordable private transportation service.

    Private transfers were provided by Costa Rica Trip Guide. Erick was very professional. He made sure all went well in Costa Rica. Everything went as expected. The drives, guides and office staff were always courteous, excellent service by everyone during the entire time in Costa Rica. Always on time. I Highly recommend Erick, Costa Rica Trip Guide and his team for a great experience in Costa Rica. As Costa Ricans says their slogan Pura Vida!!

    Very professional, safe and terrific service transporting us to La Fortuna from San Jose. We were two families, so got us a 15 seater. Highly recommend them.

    Our tour guide, Osvaldo, was prompt and organized. He gave us a tour of wonderful vistas, informed us of local culture, was great at spotting birds and sloth for us, recommended great activities and lodging, and vas very responsive to our needs. Additionally, he helped us out of a pickle we were in. There was a mixup with our lodging and Ovi helped us find replacement lodging for several days on very short notice during peak tourist season. He speaks excellent English and because of his awesome curiosity and willingness to learn I wouldn’t be surprised if during his 25 years of experience he had picked up other languages. I highly recommend this shuttle service.

    Osvaldo picked us up right on time. He was very knowleadgable and kind. He said he decided to take us through a Panoramic View of the country. He took us to experience our first and best coffee in the mountain area. Also, he was able to point every area and was very proud of his country's facts. He stopped by the waterfalls and even went back to catch the view of a Tucan. He also took us to have Empanadas at the Iguanas Bridge/Restaurant. The best Empanadas in the area. He took us to an agency were we could book our desired tour. Finally, he stopped at the market so that we could get some snacks and drinks for our room. It was a very personable experience. Nothing like the other transportation services we had throoughout our stay. We missed Ovi for sure!!

    Obi was a great guide! He was waiting for us at the airport, was very friendly, and was a wealth of knowledge about the best sites and places to visit, he could identify all of the plants and animals along the way, and even stopped along the way to show us the best photo ops! The drive, rather than being a boring commute, was a fun part of our trip. He also made lots of great recommendations on other places to visit, and I regret not checking the spelling, because he told us a place where you could scuba dive with whales in the wild (which I definitely want to do next trip!). Obi, if you see this, would love to know where you had recommended. And thanks again for an amazing trip--hope to see you again next time!

    This is a very well organized and professionally run shuttle service. We booked them from San Antonio airport to Arenal and had Erick as our driver. He was extremely friendly and very welcoming. We then booked them from Arenal to Manuel Antonio with Gerardo who was also very friendly and knowledgeable. We took another driver from Manuel Antonio back to San Jose who was very welcoming and understanding. All of the drivers offered many stops and gave us a lot of information. They're part of what makes our visit to Costa Rica a real vacation with no issues! Would recommend if you're looking to relax and not worry about transportation!
