Our family (including two young teen girls and young and older adults) came on a family vacation to Costa Rica and as part of our visit, we organized a tour with Willies Tours. To begin with, the contact with the people at the office was always so nice and already gave us good feelings about what was to come.
When Jorge stepped into our bus we were already enchanted from the first moments. He was able to feel the group and the different individuals and was able to get our often noisy family group quiet and attentive.
The tour began with a walk to a nice waterfall where we moved along the pools created by giant rocks to reach a position under the falling water and rejuvenate ourselves under it.

Next we began the cultural elements of the tour with a visit to the Shaman of the BriBri village where we enjoyed a combination of an informative overview of the roles, responsibilities and some of the rituals of the Shaman in this culture, together with a personal spiritual good feeling for most of the group.

The visit ended with a visit to a family where we most of all enjoyed the personal contact with some of the family members and the children ranging in age between a few months to 112 years. We danced and sang with the family and could not resist purchasing their wonderful chocolate creations.

Our guide, Jorge, was as knowledgeable and interested as kind and attentive to our individual needs and interests.
I wholeheartedly recommend this tour and Willies Tours in general

For a family of four we booked a tour from Cahuita to Fortuna to include a boat trip and overnight in Tortuguero. Willie's tours is well organized and everything went well throughout the trip. Jorge, who runs the business is very knowledgable about Coata Rica's environment and history and he likes to share his knowledge. The hotel in Tortuguero was not quite what we expected.For this reason only four stars.

In June we planned a tour to Tortuguero and La Fortuna with the help of Willie's tours.
He just arranged everything for us ! It started in the morning with the transport to Limon, where we could catch a boat to Tortuguero. This boat trip was great and we definately recommend this (beautiful nature, a lot of monkeys, crocodilles, birds etc.)! When we arrived at Tortuguero a guide was already waiting for us and dropped us at our hotel which was also booked by willies tour. This was a really nice hotel with a swimmingpool. The day after we did a hike in the national park and afterwards the guide dropped us at the place where we could take the boat to the next destination, La Fortuna. After a one hour boattrip, a taxi was already waiting for us.

It was all very well organized and we really recommend to book a tour at Willie's tour !

Everyone who works there is very friendly. We booked several tours including the snorkeling trip in the National Park, a day trip to Panama for more snorkeling, and a rafting transfer back to San Jose. Everything went very smoothly and they even helped us to rent a car and gave us directions to several out of the way locations that we would not have found on our own. I would highly recommend them to anyone traveling to the Caribbean side of Costa Rica.

George from Willies Tours in Cahuita knows his job. He organized a Tour from Cahuita to Tortuguero and from there to Pavona and then to San Jose.
So George took us to Limon, where the boat to Tortuguero startet. It was quite a small boat and the captain took lot of time, that everybody could see animals and enjoy nature. We saw two crocodiles. lots of birds, slots, butterflies .....
In Tortuguero our guide Bonny Scott took us to quite a lovely place- the Don Quichotte in Tortuguero. The next morning we started on a very early tour with Bonny- we had the guide for us two alone and it was great, because he knows the rivers in Tortuguero like his home and he also knows nearly everything about the flora and fauna there.
The tour included the private shuttle from cahuita to Limon, the Boat from Limon to Tortuguero. The Hotel Don Quichotte for one night. The boat tour in the morning and the boat back to La Pavona.
From there we went by bus to Cariari and then from Cariari by Bus to San Jose. (this was not included, but the bus is quite cheap).
Everything was well organized and the timetable was perfectly planned.
So we can recommend booking a tour by George from Willies Tour and Bonny from Cahuita to San Jose via Tortuguero.
