Oscar, his son & brother-in-law were absolutely wonderful!! So hospitable, really explained alot about the area. He had no time schedule so when we wanted to stop for lunch on the beach he accommodated us. 2 of the women in our group went on the canopy tour. They had a fantastic time doing the zip line. We visited quite a... More

Just expect a beat up old mini van and good coversation when he isnt on the cell phone or texting.... banana plantation and river boat ride were interesting and... More

I am rating this as a four star tour - because we DID have an enjoyable day that added to great memories BUT I would not take this tour again. I'll start on a positive note, Oscar was there waiting with his sign right on time, outside the gates as agreed. A welcome sight indeed when you are inundated with... More

My husband and I booked a tour with Oscar Brown on March 10, for a shore excursion in Puerto Limon when our ship Celebrity Equinox was in port. We could have booked a tour with Celebrity, but I think it is important to support smaller tour businesses, and trusty Tripadvisor led me to Oscar Brown Tours! Our emails with Carol... More

Our group of 34 booked a tour with Oscar when our Cruise Ship (Equinox) docked in Colon. We visited a local farm and stand with various fruits and plants, visited a banana plantation and then boarded boats for a 60-min ride on the Tortuguera Canals observing birds, monkeys, sloths, etc. Then we had a delicious lunch at Bonita Beach with...

While on a cruise in Central America, we decided to select something private and quiet - nothing like the large tour buses loaded with 100's of cruisers. Oscar Brown offered private cars with drivers - we could go anywhere we wanted! Our driver was Dexter (Oscar Brown's nephew). His English was excellent and he was very informative about his country.... More

We booked this tour for 12/15/2012 while in port aboard the Celebrity Equinox. This is the first time I have booked prior to cruising. I used tripadvisor to locate a good land tour and decided on Oscar Brown Tours based on the excellent reviews. You can go to http://www.oscarbrowntours.com/ to book a tour through their website. Oscar and Marlon were... More

We had made arrangements through Carol to take the combined Jaguar Rescue Centre and Tortuguero Canal Tour, and as arranged, met out guide Lorenzo (Carol's brother-in-law) outside the terminal. We had an interesting ride through the countryside on our way to the Jaguar Rescue Centre, and arrived just before it opened at 9:30 a.m. The tour of the Rescue Centre... More

Wonderful tour with Marlon who showed us a lot and was very informative. He even stopped at a grocery store to help us get coffee. We recommend the tour and it is a great value and good personal experience.
