Freddy Montero and Costa Rica Private Tours, People must remember that CR is a spanish speeking country, Freddy has a good command of the English language, my wife and I went with Freddy on one of his first tours in 2009 to Palo Verdi. He doesn't have a Biology degree, but his knowledge of CR is enormous. When your smart... More

I don't know exactly how we found Freddy Montero and his colleague Rusby Guzman, but our good fortune on this trip began here. They planned our requested and very challenging travel itinerary (San Jose, Nosara, Fortuna, Monteverde, Sarchi, Poas, La Paz, Alejuela - in 4 days), and not only met all of our criteria, but gave us so much more....

Freddy Montero planned a tour to all the places we three American women wanted to see: Rusby drove us from San Jose to Nosara on the Pacific Coast, navigating the Guanacaste region with careful attention to the rough gravel roads, which he called "Costa Rican Massage". We ate with the locals and saw sights not included in the tour books,... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, we checked out Freddy on Trip Advisor and liked what we saw. Freddy is the real deal on how to see Costa Rica. We used him to pick us up at the airport, and took two tours with him. Have to say the reviews are right on. If you want to see... More

Freddy has great tours set up and is also full of knowledge about Costa Rica. He also has other tour guides like Alejandro which are just as awesome. I can't wait until the next time I'm there to book more tours. I wish we booked more tours while we were there.

We had two fabulous tours with Costa Rica Private Tours. We thoroughly enjoyed the Borinquen Tour with Freddy. It included horseback riding, zip-lining on 12 platforms, hot springs, mud bath and sauna. Freddy's English is great and he has vast knowledge of his country. The second tour was the Palo Verde Boat Tour with Diego and Alejandro. It was amazing.... More

My girlfriends and I get away each February to escape the winter doldrums. This year we travelled to Costa Rica and spent 12 days with Freddie. We enjoyed every minute of it. Freddie showed us his wonderful country which included a volcanic sauna and mud bath, picking cashews off a tree for us, taking us on a horseback ride to... More

We had 45 friends and family fly into Liberia for my sister's wedding. They of course arrived on different flights and left on different flights, so we required 12 different transfers which meant many moving pieces and opportunities for things to go wrong, but Freddy Montero and his company Costa Rica Private Tours stepped up to the plate and made...

we had the opportunity to zip line not too far a distance from our resort, Riu Guanacaste, with a private tour company called maleku tours. we thoroughly enjoyed this adventure with approximately 12 platforms to do. We did zip lining 8 years ago at one much further away but this one was great too. KEVIN was particularly helpful and personable;... More

Just came back from Costa Rica yesterday. All big companies will take you to the Bona Vista to do the Zip lining and other activities. But if you ask them for Borinquen , they will not confirm you without 10-15 people. Its an expensive tour ( around 155 USD). But its the best view to do Zip lining and other... More
