    The tour guides were all enthusiastic, professional and made me feel safe. I had never done zip lining before so initially I was nervous but they explained everything in Spanish and in English, the rest was history.
    I had a blast and got to meet some new people in the process.

    Nice trip, with a very knowledgable guide. Our tour departured at 6:30, going straight to the volcano. Then we've been to the other places, including the Basilica, which was not on the list, but was a nice inclusion.

    My wife and I where picked up from the hotel exactly on time. Eduardo our river guide introduced himself and our driver Carlos. Things never got off track for a second. The drive to the rafting center, breakfast at the center, lunch at the center after the rafting everything was perfect.
    There were some pretty intense/fun rapids. Eduardo’s instructions and raft management inspired confidence and a sense of enormous fun the entire time!!!

    Irazu volcano is definitely worth visiting - the view on the way high up is unmatchable and it's quite an experience being at the peak above the clouds.
    Martin was a great tour guide, very friendly and knowledgeable, and arrived on time.
    As other reviews mentioned, it felt like the commute takes a major part of this tour.

    Our guide, Paluchi, was fantastic. He made the experience feel fun and safe at the same time. The Pacuare River is beautiful, full of birds and the rapids were very manageable. For us the water levels were quite low due to recent good weather. The overnight in the Pacuare River Lodge was the cherry on top. Moses cooked us delicious meals, there are two beautiful waterfall pools within walking distance to swim and it is so peaceful. Beds are comfortable and cabins feel cosy but not too hot. The tour company tells you that you do not need a towel but you do on the second day when you finish the rafting to shower so bring one. Also bring a book and something to entertain you in the lodge overnight as it is very quiet.

    The tour guides were great and made the best out of the experience. However, it would have been good to know that the volcano looks nothing like the picture and there is no water! The stop at the town on the was was also too short to have food and shop and enjoy and it was rushed!

    I liked a lot the school tour, our tour guide was talking in English, I liked that, in Irazu Volcano was too cold and was a little cloudy, I enjoyed that I learned some things about the Irazu Volcano, and the Lankester Botanic Garden has a lot of plants, it's a wonderful place

    We enjoyed this experience very much! The views and attention to detail of the tour guides was exceptional. My only suggestion is to advertise a more realistic time frame. The tour time was listed as 9 hrs which includes travel so we only rafted for about a total of 3 hrs without travel. We were expecting at least 5-6hrs of rafting with a break in between.
