    Fun trip which included all the main sites for a good day trip from San Jose.
    Food (breakfast and lunch) was particularly tasty.

    Tour guide Gary and driver Roy were great. We lucked out with a sunny day for volcano. Waterfall was amazing. Coffee stop was also enjoyable. Totally recommended

    This was an amazing tour with a great group and excellent tour guide. I believe this is a great value because it takes you from San Jose, all the way an hour and a half approximately away to the Poas National Park. The views on the way up are very pretty; with mountains, valleys, a few towns, cows, and lots of green. The hike to see the volcano is great, and the tour guide, Marcela, provided excellent information about the volcano, the beautiful crater, and the history of its eruptions.

    The national park is beautiful park with lots of green, refreshing air and gorgeous views. There is a great gift shop/ cafe near the entrance. You stop at a resturant that is delicious and reasonableom the way back. Also, there is a stop at the Starbucks Coffee farm. There you can buy coffee or a treat if you choose and also take in the views of a coffee plantation. This excursion is great for solo or groups and is very reasonably priced! Marcela is great, welcoming, and spoke in both Spanish and English.

    Costarica is an unique place in the world and we were lucky to have the best guide in the world Hayro Hernandez.
    The journey spanned 7 days (8 nights).
    Some of the places we visited:
    San Jose, Irazu and Lankester Botanical Gardens, Arenal/La Fortuna with its soothing hot springs, and super safe and funny activities like zip-lining and rafting (first time in our life)

    Every single day was unforgettable and a significant part of that was thanks to Hayro.
    Summer Holidays was perfect in any aspects and thank to Hayro again!

    Alvaro was fantastic. Unfortunately, we chose a cloudy day to go, and even though we went early as recommended, we did not see the lake/crater. Alvaro did everything he could to get us a glimpse of the volcano - waiting a long time in hopes that the clouds would clear a bit. He made our trip special even though we were not able to see it, taking us to other places and enjoying a coffee with us at the Starbucks farm. Thank you Alvaro! I would 100% recommend using him as a tour guide, not only for the volcano, but message him for other custom tours too!

    Very nice trip and Jirge was a very nice guide.
    We were in group but in the park we had a freedom to walk around on our own pace, which i like to be independant.
    Volcano was amazing, view to the cater was stunning. I went as well to see the lagoon, 30 minutes of climbing.
    Later at Mi cafecito, very nice restaurant, we had a lunch, and later detalied tour about caffee, from planting the bushes and whole process up to packing.
    Really recommend this experience.

    Roy and Javier were wonderful. Despite the clouds, it was a fantastic tour and Javier was very knowledgeable and personable. Quick tip—you get coffee samples at both the beginning and end of the coffee tour, so pace yourself (or don’t!).

    The highlight was the crater of the Poas Volcano, which appeared when the clouds opened up for a few seconds at a time.
    The many educational nature experiences at La Paz Waterfall Gardens were the best combination I know of in one place, with the stairs along the unique waterfalls in the country.

    The Doka Cafe Estate was also excellent, completing the variety that made the tour worthwhile.
    Our bilingual guide Hayro, was excellent in his knowledge to impart on what we were seeing,
    in his good humor that kept us engaged and his attention to our individual needs.
    My only quibble was the difficulty in finding our pick-up point, as we were not staying at one of the hotels listed.
    one of the hotels listed. But we coordinated by mail and everything was arranged well.
    My phone calls to the number provided online connected me to an agent very quickly.

    Where do I begin? Of the three tours we took, this one was the highlight. Poas was clear and allowed us to take incredible photos. The sites along the way and stops for photo ops were great. La Paz was impressive as we got to see indigenous animals, hummingbirds, and waterfalls, as well as enjoy a great lunch. The hiking was taxing yet awesome!
    Olman is the consummate guide, patient and encouraging all to take advantage of every opportunity.
    You will not be disappointed.

    I like the treatment we received, we are a large family visiting Costa Rica on vacation in January, since we started our reservation we always received clear information and on time, a day before our trip they sent us the itinerary and this was fulfilled as if they were a clock, very punctual.
    The attractions every day are simply wonderful, you really can't miss any of them, each attraction makes you feel different things, adrenaline, comfort, relaxation, inspiration, however it is something you really have to experience on your own.
    The team of guides is highly professional, with an impressive level of English and knowledge of their country, flora and fauna, places, foods, etc.
    The recommendations that the guides give you are always very accurate, the cars are always clean, the hotel is impeccable, 5 star certified, excellent staff.
    The food is simply delicious, very varied with fresh vegetables and juices that I never imagined existed.
    Costa Rica captivates you in all its aspects, I hope to return on the next vacation, see you soon and I really congratulate my family is super happy with this vacation.
