My wife and I booked 4 seperate tours at 3 different locations with Vladimir and Go Tours.Vladamir asked a few questions and then reccommened which tours to do and at what locations to do them.He even recommended we do one less tour and go out on our own , therefore , taking business away from himself , I find this to be one of a few telltale traits when dealing with tour companies. The Canyoning that Vladamir suggested in Arenal was awesome ! The guides were great and the experience was so fun , my wife and I had a blast. The zip lines in Monteverde , crazy! So now were In Manuel Antonio and set to do the Severge River Whitewater rafting, when the earthqake hits.There is a sunami alert and our tour is canceled.I call Vladamir, go over our options . My wife and I decide to just get a refund. A few days later we are dining in San Jose ready to go home , and as agreed upon earlier , Vladamir delivers our refund in cash. Who does that! We found out later that Go Tours books the entire vacation , hotels tranfers , tours , ect.. , with the proffesionalism, knowledge and entigrity Vladamir and Go Tours showed we would not hesitate to use Go Tours for our next
vacation to Costa Rica.

Dear darren m,
We really appreciate the opportunity you gave us to take care of your 3 tours in Costa Rica and that Vladimir was able to provide you with the perfect recommendations according to the activities you wanted to do and the locations you were going to visit.
It is great to hear that you enjoyed the Canyoning tour in the Arenal Volcano area and the zip lining tour in the Monteverde Cloud Forest. I’m sorry that your white water rafting in Manuel Antonio had to be cancelled due to the tsunami alert which thankfully was only an alert.
Thank you for considering using our services for your next vacation in Costa Rica; we will be very happy to help you with the planning of an awesome trip!

My first visit to Costa Rica was to celebrate New Year's eve with my friends and her mom, and thanks to Vladimir and GoTours, we had an amazing and safe time. We are very curious and little scared to find a trusted resource due to we were all girls, Vladimir was very prompt and thorough in all his communication with us (a lot of emails).

We were very excited to participate in adventure activities like water rafting and volcanoes visit. But the most important part was when we asked to see real Costa Rica, he introduce us his family and we participate in Zapote's Festival (Bull rides, PURA VIDA!!) . Vladimir was truly passionate about Costa Rica. I would recommend Vladimir and GoTours to anybody looking for a well-planned, exciting and different vacation in Costa Rica!

It is hard to put into words just how wonderful our trip with Vladimir and Go Tours was...it was a trip of a lifetime! There were 14 of us traveling together--ages ranging from 6 to 78--Vladimir planned everything perfectly--the chocolate tour, the coffee plantation, the beaches, zip lining, horseback riding, surfing, canopy bridges and more...all well planned and well executed! The hotels, food and service were also all incredible! For most of, this was our first time to visit Costa Rica...Vladmirs knowledge of his country and surroundings gave us all a great education of everything that we were seeing and doing! Using Go Tours is a MUST for your vacation!

Recently I went on a trip to Costa Rica with my dad, and thanks to Vladimir and GoTours, we had an amazing time! Even before we arrived, Vladimir was very prompt and thorough in his communication with us, and he planned out a trip perfectly to cater to our needs. We were very excited to participate in adventure activities like ziplining, atv riding, and white water rafting, and all of the excursions set up for us truly exceeded our expectations. On some of our longer drives across the country, Vladimir accompanied us, and he was truly passionate about Costa Rica and made sure to take pit stops in place where we could develop a greater understanding of the local culture and see tons of wildlife (everything from macaws to alligators to monkeys). In addition, he was very helpful and recommended some great mini-excursion/restaurant choices for when we had some down time. Overall, I would recommend Vladimir and GoTours to anybody looking for a well-planned, exciting vacation in Costa Rica!

When you visit a country for the first time you need a trusted resource who will guide you through the planning and ensure that your vacation is perfectly customized to your hopes and dreams for the perfect vacation. Vladimir and GoTours exceeded this desire in every single way! From all of my questions during the pre-planning portion of our vacation to the timeliness and quality of every tour we took, I could not have asked for anything more! We toured Costa Rica for 7 beautiful days; 2 of which were on our own and the rest were booked as private tours with GoTours (Tirimbini Reserve & Chocolate Tour - not to miss!, Ziplining, Manuel Antonio Park) or as part of the standard tours (Poas Volcano & La Paz and Cano Negro). His drivers and tours were outstanding in every way; informative, enjoyable and a perfect glimpse into the beauty of Costa Rica. Vladimir went out of his way to make this a vacation to remember and even when on my last day I took I fall and broke my ankle, he was with us every step of the way and made sure we received the absolute best medical care and helped us get to San Jose in no time at all (even though it meant re-arranging their schedules entirely). Finding an amazing tour guide and company that loves to share the history and beauty of their country is a wonderful find and quite honestly, you will not be able to find anyone who is as passionate and committed to ensuring your happiness and making all of your vacation hopes & dreams come true. Pura Vida is working with Vladimir and GoTours; you'll not regret a single moment of your trip in his wonderful care!

Dear Nicola C,

Thank you very much for your kind words towards our company and specially to Vladimir. We are very happy to know that you had such a great experience during your 7 days trip to Costa Rica and that Vladimir was very helpful on the planning and actual guiding of the services included in your itinerary; he is indeed a very passionate person about Costa Rica and the best part is that he loves what he does for living.

It is great to hear that you enjoyed the chocolate tour at Tirimbina, the zip lining tour in Manuel Antonio, the Poas Volcano tour and the Cano Negro wildlife boat tour. All of those activities make a perfect blend of nature, adventure, relax, wildlife observation and beach time; all in the beautiful rainforest of Costa Rica.

Braking your ankle was definitely an unfortunate situation; it is good to know that Vladimir made sure that you received the best medical care.

We really appreciate the trust you put in our company for your first Costa Rica vacation; it will be our pleasure to help you with the arrangements of another perfect itinerary around our country in a near future.
