We lucked out by coming across Gio Tours as we disembarked our cruise ship at Puntarenus Costa Rica. This tour was just slightly less than the cruise tour but there were only eight of us in the minivan which meant we were not just one in a large crowd. I cannot say enough about Jesus Mora, our guide who went... More

Our guide, Esteban, met us at the dock and took us on a WONDERFUL tour!! He speaks perfect English and knows EVERYTHING about Costa Rica! My husband and I were comfortable in an air-conditioned van as Esteban drove us from site to site telling us about so many aspects of the country--the nature, geography, society, and more. We were on... More

The initial communication via email was extremely efficient with owner Giancarlo. Upon our ship's arrival in Puntarenas, we were met at the dock by Christian who was a delight to have as our guide for the entire 7 hours. He was very knowledgeable and proud of his country, he was entertaining and very accommodating to our needs. There was a... More

After reading the reviews for Gio Tours we booked the 6-in-1 tour. The initial communication was great by email. Christian Miranda met us at the port on time with a sign - easy to locate. We were very pleased with the clean and roomy 22 passenger, air conditioned van for the 15 of us. We saw monkeys, iguanas, birds and... More

We booked our 6-in-1 tour with Gio Tours in January, 2014, after reading many positive reviews about the tour. We received a confirmation call from the company prior to our setting sail on our cruise. We got off the cruise ship on Monday, March 24, 2014, and was greeted by Christian holding up a name sign. Our party of six... More

Esteban, our guide, really helped us make the most of our day in Costa Rico. This was a private tour for me and my husband in an air conditioned van. Esteban tailored the tour for us and made it really fun. We had smoothies (twice) at a lovely fruit stand then we had a wonderful boat ride where we saw... More

All the sights were will chosen. Our lunch at a road way stop was excellent! really enjoyed the local drink. Chris was accommodating... More

We booked this tour on our own, hoping for something different from what we could do through the ship (we were in port for the day.) Our arrangements were to meet someone with our name on a sign as we left the ship around 9 AM. Things were a little confusing, but we found our man (he didn't have a... More

We were delighted with our 3-4-14 GioTours 7 hr. excursion with guide, Chris, and driver, Alejandro, out of Puntarenas. The trip offered variety (monkeys, crocs, birds, delicious lunch included, etc.) and the guides were very knowledgable and friendly. Couldn't ask for a better introduction to this beautiful country. Fee was cheaper with 4 people, so bring some friends!
