Best day ever. Jesus was awesome. We fed monkeys, saw crocs, ate a delicious lunch. They pulled the van over any time they saw something interesting. Saw a scarlet macaw in the trees because if their sharp eyes. Really good with our 3and 6 year old kids as well. Would absolutely recommend!

My husband and I wanted to go to the Cloud Forest/MonteVerde from the port in Puntarenas, Costa Rica which was not offered through the ship. I found GioTours here and we worked together via email to book...great communication! Omar (guide) and Francisco (driver and bird MASTER) met us at the dock. Omar knows EVERYTHING about Costa Rica and his knowledge... More

We decided to book the 5 cities tour. What a wonderful day! Our shipped docked early and Gio tours was there waiting and ready to go, so we piled in the van and headed out to San Ramon, Palmares, Naranjo, Sarchi, and Grecia. Each town has its own unique church with a park located directly across the street. In San... More

We signed up for the 6 in one tour from Porto Limon (on the Caribbean side). The price was very reasonable, and the tour was outstanding. Our van had good air conditioning and our driver was very friendly and a good driver - we felt very safe with him. Our tour guide spoke excellent english and was very informative about... More

GIO TOURS created a fabulous tour for us. Jesus and Fernando showed us many hidden treasures that only expert local guides would know about. A great day all around.

I booked our tour because of the reviews I read on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We had a much better tour than the ones booked through the cruise ship and the price was very reasonable. I asked if Gio Tours operated in other countries hoping to get one in Guatamala, but our guide said "not yet".

Trip Advisor came through for us. After readying all the reviews for a cruise ship free day we picked this company and picked Omar. The tour itinerary and Omar was perfect. This was one of the two best tours I've had in my life (the other was Blue Diamond Tours in Sydney, Australia, which we also found through Trip Advisor.... More
