  • It's definitely worth it! It was so much fun. The guides were professional and provided great service.

  • This tour was great! I highly recommend. The tour guide was very informative and there was a singing guitar player who made the drive fun! San Jose is a great city and it was nice to see the highlights that I otherwise probably wouldnt have taken the time to see.

  • Had a wonderful time picked us up at our hotel and returned us safely. Saw a lot of San Jose it was a great experience.

  • First, they were late almost an hour to pick us up. Second, supposed to be an english speaking tour, but there were two families only speak spanish. Therefor, the guide has to back and forth with two different languages, and at some point we are confused. Third, the tour time supposed to be around 6 hours, actually our trip only last little over 4 hours, that is including lunchabout one hour. This tour was in a rush, totally waste your time and money.

  • This tour was phenomenal!! Jason was an outstanding tour guide. His knowledge and love for Costa Rica was admirable. We recommend this tour for anyone that wants to really learn about Costa Rica. The food at the restaurant was great too!!
