We scheduled the all-inclusive day tour with Mike, and what a great choice!! He is very knowledgeable about the country and explains everything from plants and flowers to Costa Rican history the entire tour. We felt so comfortable and safe with Mike that we asked him to drive us to Manuel Antonio for our stay there, then picked us up... More

I had the pleasure of having Paradise Tours pick a group of 16 of us up from San Jose Airport and take us on a tour which included dropping us off in Quepos. Mike rented a shuttle bus, pretty new, clean air conditioned. He shared so much information with us along the way and we were excited to learn so... More

My best friend and I did the all inclusive day tour and had the most amazing time. Mike was so knowledgeable and the tour was just us so we really felt like we got the red carpet treatment. We loved the coffee plantation, the Costa Rica history we were taught, the volcano, the waterfalls, lunch, the restaurant with the hummingbirds... More

Be sure to book your Costa Rica tours through Mike! Mike is fantastic!!! Worth every penny, and then some. He will make sure your needs and accommodations are met! If weather spoils your plans (which can happen often in Costa Rica), he will provide options which are just as good! It is definitely a great alternative having a private guide... More

Mike is the best! My wife and I just did his "Special Day Tour" and it was all we were hoping for, and then some. Every place we stopped, Coffee plantation, fruit stands, waterfalls, that really good Casado at the little restaurant with the hummingbirds, Riverboat trip, it was all just the best. Mike is extremely knowlegable about Costa Rica,... More

I hired Mike because of Trip Advisor reviews and he was as good as everyone has said. He was beyond accommodating as I changed my mind several times before arrival in regards to what I wanted to do. He was very gracious in helping me work through this. Upon meeting him, he took us to Mount Poas, the waterfall gardens,... More

We went with Mike for two private trips: Superior Day Tour and Pacific Beaches. Both days out were fantastic, we saw really a lot and Mike makes sure his clients are happy. He can tell you lots of interesting facts about Costa Rica and is very friendly, so whoever is going to go for a trip organized by Paradise Tours... More

Mike provided my wife and me with a wonderful day trip. Mike is personable, accommodating, and very knowledgeable. He took us up Mount Poas to the volcano - the crater and lake were unfortunately shrouded by clouds, but the view was still cool - we visited several dramatic waterfalls, and had a fascinating tour of a chocolate plantation which included...

My husband and I took one of the day tours offered by Mike at Paradise Tours. It was a wonderful day. Mike is flexible and will tailor a tour to your individual desires, but he also has regular trips that you can review. It was well-worth the price and the tour we provided us with a most memorable day in... More

Five girlfriends on vacation, leaving family and kids behind- all we wanted was fun,fun and fun. This tour company provided what we needed at the same time, showing us around the most important parts/scenes/adventures of Costa Rica. Thanks to Mike, we covered various attractions, my highlight being the zip-lining with breathtaking views of the Arenal reservoir. Mike was flexible by... More
