“Amazing Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we had an amazing and memorable time with Vladimir from Go tours. We were four adults and did the private Arenal Volcano tour with Tabacon Hot Springs and the Canopy Rio Seco Private tour. Everything was well organized and the tours were tailored to us. Vladimir was fabulous, knowledgeable and went above and beyond showing us the beauty of his country.

“San Jose, Costa Rica: fabulous tours of falls, rainforests and sights.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012

Vladimir did an outstanding job as our guide through diffferent rainforests, Catarata La Fortuna, the National Theater and the gold archives. All of these venues were exceptional and extremely interesting. Our experience at Braulio Carrillo National Park was awesome! The guides, along with Vladimir, were very knowledgeable and readily answered all of our questions. Our trip to the thermal springs at Tabacon Resort was a perfect ending to a remarkable day! Our excursions were even more enjoyable because Vladimir made an extra effort to share some of the local flavor of his country. We visited roadside stands, an iguana farm, found a sloth, a toucan and howler monkeys. Fantastic! An unforgettable trip!

“One of the best parts of the trip may be your guide!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

Anyone looking for an outstanding tour guide operator for Costa Rica should contact Go Tours, Vladimir Salas Lobo. The flexibility, attention to detail, promptness and concern for their client’s safety and enjoyment is superb.

Vladimir’s love and knowledge of his native country is reflected in everything he does. While we were a group of 10 senior citizens, he can plan for any level of activity or interest. We really appreciated that at the planning stage he presented numerous options, with pros and cons that helped us to make the ideal choices for our trip.

As the planner for out expedition I really appreciated his promptness and detailed responses via E-mail or phone if needed.

His personal touches (numerous samples of fruit on the bus) and spontaneous stops (iguana farm, local garden with cacao tree) were both fun and educational. He always assisted as needed during the hikes, canopy tours, etc. His concern that our trip be everything we hoped extended to his selection of an excellent driver and other cultural specialists and naturalists.

Go Tours and Vladimir in particular, made our trip to a very special country even more special.

“Vladimir is a difference maker!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

If you are lucky enough to have Vladimir as your tour guide, you will truly EXPERIENCE Costa Rica! He was a wonderful ambassador for his country! Even though he has seen the sights countless times, he made each of our excursions fresh and exciting for us. He was a wealth of knowledge and his perfect English helped us to thoroughly enjoy and learn from each experience. His very warm and outgoing personality enabled all of us to feel very comfortable spending so much time with him. He even joined us for a fun Super Bowl experience at a local spot in Tamarindo. Vladimir took care of every detail of our trip and we had no worries about any of the logistics. One of my favorite parts was stopping at small, local restaurants along the way and allowing him to suggest different Costa Rican cuisine....all delicious!! Looking back, I realize that Vladimir's talent of providing guide services was what made our Costa Rican vacation top notch. And to top it off, he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet! Could not have asked for a better experience!!

“Amazing First Trip to Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Our group of 4 couples visited Costa Rica and used Go Tours. We stayed for 2 weeks. We all had a fantastic time because of Vladimir. He is truly one of the best tour guides we have ever had. Not only is he friendly and speaks perfect English, but is extremely knowledgeable about his country. Vladimir asked us at the beginning of our trip what animals and plants we would like to see and learn about during our stay. And I must say, he delivered. We saw them all! And more that we didn't know about. All the excursions we went on were well thought out by him according to our suggestions. Especially the day we went canyoning and then to the hot springs for a long, long soak. A perfect day I will never forget. He truly is a wonderful tour guide! Vladimir - Thank for you a wonderful trip.
