    Very professional and safe tour. It’s a long drive, but worth it to raft the world famous Rio Pacuare. Meal was typical Costarican food and was yummy. Van and rafting equipment top notch. Come dressed in your bathing suit under your clothes. Bring a change clothes, heavy duty wet socks/shoes, and a towel to shower with if you wish. If you only do one exhilarating excursion, do this one. Thank you Roy at Destination Services for planning my trip. Highly recommend.

    Our guide was Manuel B.—very friendly and kind soul. We improvised a bit since my husband and I had come in on a red eye and were exhausted: we needed a low-key day and we’re planning to stay in Monteverde rather than returning back to San Jose. We went on backroads to avoid traffic and drove past smaller towns and hillsides as we asked him more about what it was like to live here, and learned more about Costa Rica culture. Our first stop was to Puntarenas to see the ocean and cool our feet in the water. He found us some coconuts and we had a refreshing drink before driving up to Monteverde. Here we had a wonderful leisurely meal at the Open Kitchen cafe and went to the beautiful and charming Butterfly refuge. Wanting to get back to the hotel for dinner, we made a last stop at the coffee shop at the Monteverde cloud forest preserve. We sat on the porch at the café and listened to and watched multiple hummingbirds feeding. So peaceful and thrilling for us. Bird sounds filled the air. Then back to our hotel. Lovely personalized day! Manuel is a genuine and generous person and we glad to have met him. Wonderful experience!

    My wife and I did the Monteverde and Arenal volcano and hot springs tour from San Jose which were graciously donated by A&E to a benefit auction we attended. Our tour guide and driver were great! They knew all the best spots to stop for photos. We had nice tour companions each day. These tours are 14 hours long with a lot of driving, but we didn't feel rushed. Without an itinerary the first day was very long especially after having to ride along to drop off another group in Jaco then drive back to San Jose. We knew a little better what to expect the second tour and enjoyed it more. I would recommend doing one of the 3 day packages. Coming back to San Jose each night was taxing.

    My cousin and I recently had a short stay in San Jose, We chose this tour and had a MARVELOUS experience with our guide Giovanni. He arrived on time to pick us up from our hotel. From the hotel we headed up to the Volcano- before reaching our destination we stopped at this beautiful coffee shop that had some of the BEST coffee I've ever drank! The cafe overlooked a magnificent coffee farm. Next we stopped at La Paz waterfall and then onto Volcan Paos- the scenes were SPECTACULAR. Giovanni was the PERFECT tour guide! He was extremely personable and I felt like everyone knew him and the tour was very personal and friendly...Giovanni even got the owner Mariella of a local restaurant to create a beautiful fruit boquet for my cousin celebrating her birthday- it was TRULY a perfect day with a perfect guide!! Some things to note...the tour was filled with activity- there was minimal walking and was good for those that are in good shape but you dont need to be super fit- the roads are narrow and EVERYONE in San Jose drives agressively.

    Had an awesome day with Corry and Andres - they were so personable, funny, entertaining and made sure we felt comfortable. The hike and lunch were great and the falls can't be missed, they are stunning!!!

    This tour was awesome!
    Our guides Andres, Corry, and Ismael (sorry if I spelled your names incorrectly!) made the trip super special.
    We were a party of 8, they made sure we tried the water slide and jumped off the rocks, and kept everyone safe. These guys work hard and it’s obvious they love their jobs….
    The waterfall is gorgeous and refreshing after the short hike down.

    How can I put this into words ,by luck we booked with A&E as always from the UK its all a bit of guess work . What amazing luck apart from being the people that made our holiday fantastic ( we had 5 tours with them ) to people we miss as friends . great knowledge of the areas looking after Me and Maria on every Tour . I can say we miss Costa Rica Now we are home but the last tour we had was like leaving friends .
    If you are going to book a tour in costa Rica book A&E and no one else

    It was our highlight during our stay in San Jose, we did it the day before our flight and it made a difference. The tour guide was amazing and our driver picked us up at our Airbnb, we did a stop for lunch and watch the crocodiles in a river, was nice. It is really worth every penny.

    Like entering Jurassic park. You choose a walking stick ( recommend the bamboo as quite light but sturdy) and which is very helpful for coming back up ! And off you go. Follow the path down - well sign posted and take it slowly ( best step sideways on way down). Lots of spectacular views of the falls on the way down too. About 400 steps. We only saw one other couple on a Saturday afternoon and saw two sloths - what a magical hike. Near il silencio ( about a ten minute drive) which was a fabulous place to then stay for a couple of nights.
