Pretty good
Chris_W, Sept 2023
The tour guide, Eddie Rojas was fantastic and knowledgeable and made the trip. The sloth/jungle tour was (too) short. The waterfall was neat. The river wasn’t great. Lunch was good.
This is an amazing tour to see some beautiful and very special things in Costa Rica!
Leslie_W, Mar 2023
What a perfect way to spend in Costa Rica! Our guide Carlos was amazing and knowledgeable! He went out of his way to make our experience very personal did not rush us through any part of the tour. He stopped at roadside stands to get fresh fruit and took us time showing and telling us all he know on our trek through the sloth sanctuary- finding animals and taking great pictures! Carlos know so much about his home country and loves to share and educate others! There were so many great things about the day we spent with Carlos! Too many to list- but everything, everything was just perfect !

Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and helpful to our elderly going up and down the trails Really impressed with their expertise They went out of their way to make everyone have a great day
Amazing Day!!
Stephanie_H, Dec 2022
This tour was so much fun. Our guide, Atol, was friendly and hospitable. He was able to spot lots of cool wildlife in the rainforest including sloths, working ants carrying leaves on the ground, different kinds of birds, and redeye frogs. While he was driving us, he even spotted wild monkeys in trees on the side of the road and pulled over so we could see them! The authentic Costa Rican restaurant he brought us to was amazing and very delicious with beautiful grounds that we were able to explore while our meal was being prepared. Over all, an amazing day that I would highly recommend!
Fun, memorable, adventurous day in Costa Rica
Chasty_U, Dec 2022
We're a family of 6 with kids ages 14 to 20 and this was our first trip to Costa Rica. We booked as a private tour (which I highly recommend) and our guide was Eithel. I can't say enough great things about the tour and our guide - made our day the best we could have imagined! Eithel was very informative throughout the car ride and each of the stops, giving us the highlights (just enough information) so that our kids stayed engaged and interested. The car ride was long, however, the van was clean and comfortable and we learned a lot along the way. Our lunch stop was at a local restaurant, ran by a family, and it was amazing! All of our stops were great but our favorite was the hike, where we met up with another local guide and walked through a small part of the rain forest. It was beyond beautiful we were all impressed by the extensive knowledge and ability to spot the various animals, plants, trees and reptiles by Eithel and the other guide. We saw many sloths, a snake, different types of frogs, termites, insects, birds, etc. and some of the most beautiful plants we've ever seen. The only animal we didn't see that we really wanted to was a monkey and, on the way back to the resort, Eithel went out of his way to find monkeys for us. This was a day we will never forget - definite highlight of our trip!!!
Great experience working with this tour company!
Andrew_H, Nov 2022
Have worked with this tour company before and they always do a good job. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and know their craft.
Great times!
Nathan_D, June 2022
We really enjoyed that this was a private tour. Getting to see a baby sloth up close was definitely a highlight of our experience! Lunch was delicious and was at a local family restaurant in a beautiful setting!! We were unable to see the waterfall due to heavy rains and the blue river was brown. Even though we missed those attractions our tour guide went out of his way to find us a couple of other activities to do instead. We highly recommend this tour.
Great tour
Kristine_S, June 2022
This was a wonderful tour. Eithel was our guide for the day and he was great. He was very knowledgeable of the parks and he was very familiar the surrounding areas. Eithel took the time to make sure we saw all the sights and animals included in the tour and went above and beyond to find a few additional things we really enjoyed. Our tour was so much fun, we decided to book another tour with them that week and it was just as good. The private tour provided a clean, comfortable vehicle with plenty of A/C. Looking forward to coming back and taking another tour with them. We highly recommend this tour, company and guide.
Fantastic tour for a good taste of Costa Rica
Ethel_A, May 2022
This was an amazing experience. Eithel was our tour guide and he was super informative, attentive and a wonderful tour guide. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour for those visiting.

Jennifer_S, Mar 2022
The tour guides were terrific! Costa Rica is beautiful, all the fruit is grown there. If you want to see sloths in their habitat this is the tour for you.
Awesome experience!!
Jesse_S, Mar 2022
Johnny was an amazing tour guide. Great experience with amazing sights and an incredible authentic Costa Rican lunch. Highly recommend!!
A great exposure to the beauty of Costa Rica
Caroline_K, Feb 2022
This tour really blew our minds. Our guide Eithel was incredible and so amazing at spotting the sloths which he knew we wanted to see. We saw 11 sloths including 2 babies. Stephanie our rain forest guide made our hike incredible, always pointing out new exciting things at each turn. She was also masterful at taking pictures for us through the binoculars. You could tell she had such a passion for the rainforest. Rio Celeste and Llanos De Cortes Waterfall were absolutely beautiful! I can’t speak highly enough of this tour!

Kim_R, Feb 2022
It was obvious that Adel was extremely knowledgeable about the excursion and the places we visited. His love for his native Costa Rica was infectious. I highly recommend this excursion for slightly older folks who do not necessarily want to horseback ride, ATV, or go tubing. This was a nice pace for my husband and I
Good day trip
Eiron_M, Jan 2022
My favorite part of the trip was the animal preserve. The guide was so knowledgeable and really tried to show us all the amazing animals. We did go on a warmer day so the frogs were all hidden away. The waterfall was beautiful but the blue pools were just ok. I will say the customer service was great. We had a small issue and they were very responsive.

Johnny was the best. He was very accommodating and his English was very good. Easy to talk to and thanks to him the excursions where fantastic. My daughter is vegetarian and he stop at the Burger King so she can buy herself a vegan burger for dinner. He surprised us with pineapple. And give us as much time we wanted to enjoy every activity. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. If you are booking the exclusion ask for Johnny. He is the best.

Nicole_J, Oct 2021
We had such a great time with Miller. He made sure we seen as much as possible. He would spot animals and stop on side of the road so we could take pictures. He was very attentive. Totally recommend this tour with him.
