We had an amazing day out with Fernando and Jesus! We were just in for the day on a cruise and I wanted our boys ( 10 & 13) to get a good introduction to Costa Rica. We were met at the dock by a gentleman with our name on a sign. We got off as soon as we docked... More

My husband and I booked the 6 in 1 tour with a group of fellow Cruise Critic travelers when onboard the Celebrity Infinity in November. Our guide was Jesus, who successfully navigated the tour both in English and Spanish. Originally, I was concerned this would be distracting and was annoyed that we had to return to the dock to pick... More

We booked a tour with Gio Tours for a day trip in Punateras and after reading great reviews about their 6 in 1 tour. On the day of our arrival we met with our guide Jesus as scheduled. The first stop was to see wild monkeys and we did, however I felt very upset that Jesus and the driver fed... More

I fully agree with the other reviews of the 6 in 1 Tour. We were part of a small group of 6, which I highly recommend asking to be part of a small group. Our guide was Omar and our driver was Fernando. Both were excellent. Great tour! Thanks Gio Tours

The 6 in 1 tour stands out in the many tours I have taken while visiting cruise ship ports as one of the best surprises. The tour meeting and departure went very smoothly. The guide and the driver were both friendly and entertaining. The tour sights, sounds and events were all good even though it was raining much of the... More

We booked the whole day tour in Puerto Limon. Our tour guide, Jesus, was knowledgeable and accommodating. We started with the Canal boat tour, and he pointed out all the wildlife, birds, and flora. Since we had extra time, he also recommended we visit an animal rescue center which we were able to get up close to toucans, sloths, monkeys,... More

This is a great tour. The close up encounter with the crocodiles was worth the cost of the trip. Our guide was Jesus and he was knew so much about the area. you could tell he was genuinely interested in the nature and flowers and creatures. We loved feeding the monkeys and had a great lunch all included in the... More

Thanks to all the excellent reviews in Tripadvisor, I found Gio Tour, an efficient, down to earth, personable & flexible local tour company. Their... More

We commend GIO Tours and especially our Guide Jesus. We had pre-booked our 6 in 1 tour and we were met on the pier and then delivered back to the pier. Jesus our guide was very knowledgeable, personable and took us all the normal highlights and to areas others could not go including a visit to some monkeys, a fantastic... More

They call this a 6 in 1 tour but I'd say it's more like an 8 in 1!! It's by far the best Tour we've ever been on. It does everything it says it does plus! The lunch that's included isn't what we expected.... It's so much more. Probably a$20 or more meal at home! Ask for Omar for your... More
