Jorge Montero, the founder of Valle Dorado, is a gracious gentleman, wonderful conversationalist, fount of all knowledge Costa Rican, remarkably informed about US politics and culture, and just plain fun to spend the day (or days) with - which we have done for over 15 years. Valle Dorado is a family business, and with the next generation now more and... More

Everything went as planned. The driver was very nice and helpful and always on time. The car was excellent. I have no complaints at all and recommend Valle Dorado. I would only suggest they get a GPS because the roads are very badly signalized, so we have to stop and ask for informations a couple of times.

Jorge suggested a two-day customized tour to Cartago, Guaybo,and Irazú with overnight in Turrialba. Despite the rainy weather, I got many good photos and had a great time. The driver, Marvin, was informative and personable and knew the area very well. Highly recommended!

We did the Zip Line canopy tour and Tabaco Hot Spring one day tour. My wife was a bit skeptical about zip lining, but ended up thoroughly enjoying the experience. The guides were great and the experience exhilarating. The hot springs were also first class and the buffet dinner was excellent. It was a very long day (6 am to... More
