A very expensive disappointment

The pick up was on time. That is where the good points stop. The van was very dirty, and none of the seat belts works despite the driver saying they did. One other person was picked up and we headed to the Starbucks plantation. We arrived an hour and half ahead of our scheduled tour time. So the driver suggested we get a coffee which we waited almost half an hour for. The next tour was in Spanish so the driver suggested we drive around for an hour until our tour time. He got lost on the way back and had to drive recklessly to get us back to Starbucks for our tour.
After the tour we stopped for "lunch" at a local soda. The lunch was very basic, and certainly not what we had expected for the price of the tour. After a quick lunch we headed to the Paos volcano, which was supposed to be our first stop. We had to rush up to the volcano, only to find out the trail to the lagoon was closing for the day. The driver then told us we could go, so we hurried up the trail to the lagoon. We returned to the van, after the driver had said he would take us to see some birds to make up for the tour. We opted not to. On the way back the other person on the tour had asked about the waterfall. She had paid for that stop as part of her tour and was told there was no time.
The tour information indicated that bottled water would be provided, none was. The information provided indicated that we were getting a guided tour, we only got a driver not a guide.
We paid almost $400 (cnd) for this tour and definitely got less than $100 worth of value. Viator would be well advised to distance themselves from this tour operator. They are at best a rip-off, and very close to a scam.

Breath taking tour, definitely worth it!! The crater is absolutely gorgeous, hard to see due to the fog, the Starbucks tour is decent but the views are amazing
