I booked Okey Dokey after reading a number of good reviews on Trip Advisor and my communication with Charlie was very good and prompt. He charged us $60.00 US/person which was a special rate for readers of Cruise Critic. This was for a 5.5 hour tour which was to include a drive in the country, a tour of the banana... More

Never EVER again would I use OkeyDokey tours, nor would I recommend them. We were a group of 110. Charlie Soto knew for several months and re-confirmed on Friday 3/13/15 before our arrival into Costa Rica Thursday 3/19/15 that we were a group of 110 for the A-1 tour ($50/pp). First, the big bus that was used for 56 of... More

We booked Charlie online before our cruise stop at Puerto Limon. We wanted a private tour for our 9 family members ranging in age from 88 to 23. I believe we paid Charlie $35/person, cash, at the end of our tour. Charlie was very responsive to all our inquiries and plans before the cruise and everything went according to plan.... More

Charlie provided great information and a great tour but his bus really needs to be replaced. a few seats were so broken that folks could not use them. Air conditioning just so-so. Tour down the canal was great as was the young guide but again be prepared for boats that are sub-standard.

Arranged a tour with 2 different nat'l parks to take in the Rain Forest flora / fauna. Our guide was excellent (the weather wasn't). We saw and learned alot, and what the guide didn't know he found out for us. Our first stop was Cahuita (sp?) nat'l park. Based on lots of rain, he recommended we skip the 2nd stop... More

I made arrangements with him months before our arrival--hanging bridges. I wrote 3 days before and 2 days before and NEVER heard back from him. Picked up last 2 seats on cruise ship excursion.

A friend had recommended Okeydokey to us before our departure on this cruise but we did not pre-book. When we disembarked from the Island Princess and made our way through the cruise hustlers we had no difficulty in getting directions to "Charley Sotos." We met Charley and told him that he had been highly recommended. We then quickly negotiated a... More

We had hired Carlos a year in advance and he promised us he would be our tour guide. He also promised us an air conditioned van and cold drinks . When we arrived in Puerto Limon we were greeted by not Carlos but another guide he had hired. The van had little to no air conditioning (operating fan of A/C... More

Everything was as anticipated plus some. The only thing that could have made it perfect would have been a speaker system in the van. poor Charlie was drowned out by four kids under 5, two Tweens, three teens and 10 adults. Our private family tour arranged via email was a bargain compared to the shore excursions arranged by our ship;Princess... More

Veragus rain forest (inc lunch) and canal boat tour. The rain forest is nice and the canal boat tour was just average not that exciting. What I did not like is the fact that Charlie said he would be our guide ... but that was not the case. Our driver turned out to be a really nice guy. Charlie also... More
