Group of 6 people in their 40s from Carnival Pride cruise ship in March 2015 toured Jaguar center and canal with Oscar Brown. Jaguar center was informative and enjoyable and the canal ride was relaxing, the young man Willie was very pleasant/competent captain of our small boat. Oscar Brown himself while a nice guy, drives like a maniac. Two of... More

As part of our Panama Canal cruise aboard the Island Princess in Jan 2015, we spent the day in Limon, Costa Rica. I booked Oscar Brown's Tour # 1 (banana plantation and Tortuguero canal) on the internet with no problems. Oscar was there outside the gate with his sign. He signaled our guide Lorenzo and we were off in Lorenzo's... More

Like some other reviewers we had great time and enjoyed but if I had to do it over again will not use Oscar Brown Tours for sure. ****Positive All correspondence was via email and in timely manner. He was waiting for us with his little sigh just outside the gate as instructed in the email. Oscar is a very nice... More

Oscar tailored a day tour to the Jaguar Rescue center and the canal cruise. Unexpected bonuses were lunch at a very nice seaside restaurant and a hilltop view of the city. At no time did we see him pay for our attractions, and yet we were immediately ushered onto a canal boat and into the Jaguar center. This showed us... More

My wife and I recently toured Puerto Limon, Costa Rica, and surrounding area with an Oscar Brown tour. This was an intimate one-on-one tour. We were chauffeured by Mr. Brown as he showed us many interesting sites and places. We stopped at a roadside market where we sampled several locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as sugar cane. He... More

Responsive via emails for cruise with all questions answered. Enjoyed the canopy, boat tour, lunch, beach stop and high point above the city. Very informative on the tour with Oscar. Vendor is outside the port gate away from all the hustle and bustle of other vendors.

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

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
