Experienced good communications in making arrangements for the "8 in 1 Highlights Tour" for a group of twelve. Our transportation was a modern air conditioned bus to which Gio Tours surprised us and added an additional six participants. This surprise made transportation " tight " and uncomfortable for larger participants. The highlight is clearly the flat bottom river boat cruise... More

We had the pleasure of having our day guided by Jesus. He is extremely polite, friendly, knowledgeable and just an all round pleasure. I would recommend taking a tour guided by him anytime anywhere. He has an intense passion about the flora and fauna of Costa Rica, so not just a guide, but a learning experience. The driver (Fernando) was... More

We jumped into a tour arranged by one of the people on the roll call in Cruise Critic and we are so glad we did. The tour was an "8 in 1" event so it gives you a taste of the region, from the stop to feed monkeys (which was so much fun), to the river tour watching a very... More

I highly recommend this tour! As an alternative to the crowded and expensive cruise excursions, we decided to try the 8 in 1 tour. What a fabulous decision! Our small group was kept busy all day having fun instead of waiting for a whole busload to do anything. Our guide, Alberto? and driver Fernando were excellent. They had an excitement,... More

Our tour was fantastic. We added a visit to the Scarlet Macaw Sanctuary to the Gio 8 in 1 tour. This was a very full day but totally worth it.

Had a wonderful private tour with our cruise critic friends... Our tour guide was wonderful, especially when we all wanted to buy coffee to bring home, he stopped at a local supermarket at the end of our touring day and helped us all buy delicious coffee to enjoy now at home. Would definitely recommend Gio Tours....
