Accessible? Not so much.

WHEELCHAIR USER- the tour itself was good, but the experience as a wheelchair user was awful. Since the description said it was accessible, but some reviews said it was hit or miss, I decided to call Viator to book directly a few weeks ahead of time. They told me they were sending an email to the company with my questions 1- was the van accessible for me to stay in my chair, we're we able to start later than the available 10:00 start since we get to port later? I was sent a few emails saying that Viator hadn't heard from Syl Tours yet, but they gave me their phone number. I decided to contact Syl through WhatsApp and was told that an accessible van with a ramp would be provided and that a later pick-up is fine. When we arrived at the port, we were met by someone who accompanied us to a tiny red vehicle. I mentioned that we were supposed to have the van and he we and got some others. They offered to put my chair in the back of the car!!!! Nope. Then they said they were taking us on a van that they could put the chair in the back... Which meant I would have to get in and out of the chair and climb three steps into the van at every stop. I am only slightly ambulatory and this was very painful and by the end of the day I was in extreme pain. They also put us in a van with another group of three people. I mentioned that we had paid for a private tour, so they asked if we would mind riding with others. When I reminded them that I paid more for it to be private they offered me $50 to let the others join. I agreed, but the other people complained about EVERYTHING which is exactly why I wanted a private tour. I sent Syk a message on WhatsApp and they said they would give me 50% off a future your... Like I hope over to Costa Rica from New York all the time.... Ultimately, our guide Alex was fantastic. He was knowledgable, fun and helpful. The boat ride was spectacular and we saw all sorts of wildlife. The people at the boat ride couldn't have been more helpful getting me in and out of the boat and the captain made sure that everyone in every seat saw every animal. His excitement was palpable and actually adorable. Lastly, the visit to the banana plantation didn't even involve going inside the gate. We pulled up next to the sign and he told us some information about the companies and not letting the bananas fall. Overall, for someone able, it might be a 4. For someone who needs to remain in their chair, skip this one.
Limon private tour

It appears that the city is very poor, as well as quite dirty. Also Considering it was Sunday and most everything was closed our tour guide Enrique provided a lot of history information. There was one situation about communication between Viator and the boat ride. While visiting the only open market our driver got a call to immediately go to the boat launch as our boat for 2 was waiting. Once we got there our guide was told it left and we were to go to another dock. We got in the boat and the boat driver was pulling out before our tour guide was able to get into the boat, saying he was our river boat guide. This boater would either troll slowly or go way to fast. Our ride became a 45 minute ride and not an hour. When Viator vets these boat drivers they should be more careful. The remainder of our tour was fine and our guide Enrique spoke very very good English as well as he had a good understanding of the language.
Disappointed PRIVATE TOUR
Joseph_F, July 2019
I had booked a 7 in 1 combo tour so that we could have a PRIVATE TOUR with our own private guide. I made it clear to the Viator coordinator that the main 3 things we wanted to do included the Rain Forrest canopy tour and walk, canal site seeing tour and shopping for local gifts. When we met up with our guide, I was told that the canopy tour was not included. Then when we arrived at the canal tour, we had to wait for 20 minutes for others to arrive before taking our tour even though we were paying for a PRIVATE TOUR. Then I said we didn't need to go to the Banana Plantation and would rather spend more time at the Rain Forest, however I was told that we needed to see the Banana Plantation because that was something everyone should see in Costa Rica. My teens and I did not have any interest stopping there but we did anyway and took the photo for him. Then were taken to a beach with a restaurant when we told our guide we weren't hungry but again he told us this would be a great spot to see. I told him we didn't have our bathing suits so all we did is take a photo and then get back in the van. It was a waste of time when we could have spent more time in the Rain Forest. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly but I don't feel he listened to what we wanted to do for our private tour although Viator assured me that by paying extra for the "Private Tour" that I would be able to tell our guide exactly what we wanted to see during our tour. We didn't want to see 7 sights, only 3 so I thought we could spend more time seeing nature and then a little shopping (which we only had the shop near the restaurant nothing special and didn't buy anything) and not go to the other areas. I would be very skeptical before booking a Private Tour again with Viator. If you book this tour, make sure you get in writing exactly what you will see otherwise, take the lessor expensive tour.
