My wife and I heard good things about Caravan from our travel agent. We are very happy to say that the travel agent did not exaggerate. The tour was fantastic. Marcus, the bus driver, was very professional with excellent driving skills. The tour director, Martha (Marta), kept the bus rides entertaining by providing us with many facts about the areas...

Dennis S. I just came back from this tour, and have nothing but good things to say. This beautiful country is replete with animals, volcanoes, rain forests, and beautiful beaches. The accommodations were top notch, and the food delicious. We toured in a comfortable bus with an impeccable driver - Tuscano. Despite all the great experiences, when I reflect on... More

This was the best vacation of our lives. Sedona was a wonderful stop to break up the bus ride from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon. Our tour director gave us excellent insider advice about lunch options. The Grand Canyon is bigger and more dramatic than it shows on video. This tour gives the opportunity for 2 sunrises and sunsets. Anyone... More

Caravan is my favorite tour company. Their Costa Rican tour includes all meals, lovely hotels, and a careful selection of sights; 2 volcanos, 2 river boat rides filled with up close views of crocodiles,birds, monkeys, etc. Tours of local enterprises. It is a bargain at the price.

Where to begin...? Let's talk about the great low price they charge for this fantastic adventure to this beautiful tropical country, we don't know how they run this tour with this price, after a long research We noticed no other adventure company includes the top notch JW Marriott with Manuel Antonio and Arenal Volcano in the same trip. Elston was... More

What can I say about our amazing trip to Costa Rica with Caravan Tours. My wife and I decided to take the 9 day excursion for our 25th anniversary. We couldn’t have had a better time. Our tour director, Ruth (baby Ruth) was simply amazing with her professionalism, historical knowledge and super fun energy. Christian (Niato) our driver was also... More

This is probably the best travel value in Central America. Only $1,000 for 10 days. We did the math and it would cost about 3X that if you did it on your own. There were very active people on our tour (including marathon runners) and those not active at all (like me). Ages ranged from 12 to 74 including two... More
