The trip to irazu volcano was great! Our guide Gary was excellent! He shared so much information with us about Costa Rica on our bus ride to the volcano and home. We were able to get a great view of the craters before the clouds came in. The gardens at Lankaster were beautiful. Gary walked around with us for a short time to point out highlights and then gave us time to walk on our own. Lunch was amazing! It was the best food I’ve had on our trip and the view was so pretty! We then had a surprise stop at some ruins and Gary told us all about that too. Our driver (sorry I dont remember his name) was very nice and a very safe driver. It was a great day and I would highly recommend this tour company and Gary as your guide!

This is a well organised and thoroughly worthwhile Tour! The Hotel collection was on time and the mini bud was clean and comfortable. Our guide spoke both English and Spanish and was very informative. The coffee plantation was beautiful and the breakfast was fabulous and very filling! Seeing the coffee process from start to finish was interesting. Poas volcano was stunning and we were very lucky to get a break in the clouds! What a setting and view!! The La Paz waterfalls were endless and well worth trekking along the well maintained jungle paths to see! There is a zoo there with some eclectic creatures on display. The big cats looked morose, but the Sloth was fascinating, the snakes were beautiful and the humming birds were everywhere and easy to capture on camera - such a treat! We had lunch whilst there - a very expansive and tasty buffet! Overall if you want an fun packed and easy day trip from San Jose, without having to travel hours either way in a minibus (like some San Jose Tours), then this is the one for you!

Wonderful full day tour! Jose was an excellent guide and Sandra the driver was amazing and pretty fearless with the steep, curvy roads! Breakfast and lunch were great and there was just enough shopping time to find the perfect thing to take back as a souvenir! I understand we got really lucky seeing the volcano with zero clouds and low crowds. That’s the part of the tour that’s a gamble and we won that one. Coffee farm was nice. La Paz is stunning. The trails to the waterfalls were a little steep at time, but there was a great pace so you could take it easy and still take some great pictures! Would recommend 100%

I had a great time with Daniel as my tour guide! He was my guide for the San Jose City Tour on day 1, and then on day 2 he was my guide for ziplining and river boat adventures in Braulio Carrillo National Park. He was friendly, funny, informative, and helpful. I highly recommend Daniel for any tour!!!!
