We did the combo canopy /river rapids tour at Hacienda Pozo Azul. We started with the zip line tour and I was SO appreciative of the bilingual explanation of how to zip line because then I could hear the explanation twice. I was so nervous!!, He also reminded us to be aware while walking in the jungle. Look down for... More

Thank you for planning and organizing my trip in May 2015. They provided with all the options i wanted. I got to travel with them to the hot spots of Costa Rica - Monteverde, Poas, Manuel Antonio, and Arenal. I loved the hazzlefree arrangements. Only one recommendation is to provide options to do at these locations to the travellers apart... More

I did the Combo Tour of Doka Coffee Estate, Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Garden. It was an excellent tour. The guide I had was very knowledgeable and he switched back and forth between Spanish and English with ease. I had to wait a little bit to be picked up for my tour, as did others, but because they...

We've had almost all of our tours around Costa Rica with them. They are normally on time, the guides are attentive, speak English in a good level and always provide the best experience. I just wish the breakfast provided had some alternatives than the traditional Gallo Pinto because some of us aren't used to the seasoning (just some bread and... More

Actual visit: March 2014 (drop down box doesn't go back before May 2014) We had wonderful guides on both of these tours. We will never forget the 3-in-1 Combo Tour. It was so amazing, even though there was too much cloud cover that day to see the volcano. The coffee estate was my husband's favorite, so beautiful and fun to... More

We had an extra full day in San Jose after returning our car and wanted to see Arenal. We booked the tour through Expediciones Tropicales. We paid extra for a private tour for our family because of our schedule, but heard the group tours are lovely as well. The ride to Arenal and back is a long road trip, but... More

I took the tour for Arenal Volcano and Tabacon Hot Springs Resort. I thought it was great. Our guide Hernan was very polite, informative and spoke English well. They picked me up from Casa Laurin in Escazu around 8:45, then we went to the hotel to get on the bigger tour bus. It is an all-day trip because of distance... More

Our travel agent used this company to arrange a day tour to Irazu Volcano, Orosi Valley and Lankester Gardens. We very much enjoyed the volcanoes and all of the information we received from the tour guide Mario. He was knowledgeable and very helpful. There were a few negatives though, not his fault. We were picked up at 7:15 and a... More

We used this company through our hotel (Hotel Presidente) to book 3 tours. We did the combo coffee plantation/volcano poas/la Paz waterfall, San Luis Canopy tour, and the Bay Island Tortuga Island cruise. All three tours included a comfortable tour bus that picked us up directly from our hotel, knowledgeable and friendly tour guides, and delicious food at regular intervals.... More

This was an excellent and well prepared trip! Both breakfast and lunch were delicious and with lots of variety. It was cloudy on top of the volcano but the waterfalls made up for it. It's suitable for al ages and can be as activity as you want to make it.
