  • Good fun. It is important to be aware that this is partly a hotel transfer for people spending longer in Tortuguero

  • The tour did not happen. I waited in my hotel lobby for two hours from 5am and no one turned up. Eventually the hotel staff managed to contact the travel company and they said the tour was not running on the day I was booked in for. I do not know why I was booked in to a non-existent tour.

  • Amazing tour! Got to see different plantations on our drive to the coast. Was great to see different wildlife on the boat ride to Tortuguero town. Knowledgeable guide and a great lunch!

  • Very nice tour, the pick up and transport could be improved but the guide was awesome

  • Tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided lots of info about Costa Rica. He stopped the vehicle at several places on the way to show us animals and different trees and plants. Very very good. He entertained us by singing too while we were in the vehicle.

  • Very well organized. The rain-forest had an Amazon like feeling.

  • This was an excellent tour!! Even getting up at 5 AM was worth it for everything that we saw and experienced. Our tour guide and bus driver were fabulous. The tour guide didn't just want us to see Costa Rica, he wanted us to experience Pura Vida. He got us exotic fruits from fruit stands to try, sang Ave Maria to us in a little church with the voice of an professional singer and we got to see baby turtles make their way from the sands of their nest to the waters of the Atlantic. Absolutely AMAZING! Each meal was deliciously prepared, even though lunch was more Americanized than I expected. So very pleased with this tour!
