We had pre-booked our tour with William indicating the areas we wanted to visit. He was very good about responding to our emails and the cost was reasonable. We were told to meet outside of our Ship the Island Princess and someone would be there with a sign. When we got there no signs with our names. We did see another gentleman with a sign who worked for William and asked him where our driver was. He did contact William and within 20 minutes our ride was there not sure if the taxi driver is affiliated directly with William but his name was Alex he was awesome.
He picked us up and off we went my husband is an avid bird watcher and Alex stopped to show us all birds along the way and allowed us to take lots of pictures this certainly would not have happened had we been on a group tour. First stop was the zip line we arrived and went into the office we were the only customers and it seemed to take awhile to find the correct paperwork for us to sign. We got into a jeep and were taken to the top of the mountain with our two guides. It was an unbelievable experience we had such a great time and there was no one but ourselves no lines or waiting. We returned to the base and still no customers like our own private zip line tour. Back to the cab and stopped several times along the side of the road to look at birds. Next stop was the banana plantation that was very interesting the tour was given by Alex. We got back into the taxi and headed for our canal trip along the way a little boy was holding a sloth and Alex pulled over I was able to hold the sloth which was sooo cool. We tipped the boy and off we went. We arrived at the canal and met up with William who apologized profusely about the early confusion. We boarded the canal boat and were pleasantly surprised once again it was just the two of us. We saw all kinds of wild life including camams, sloths, lizards, crabs, and lots of birds and we were able to get some great photo's. The canal trip was about and hour and Alex our driver and William holding a hercules beattle were awaiting us. Our trip with Tortuguero Wildlife was amazing we loved having our own private tour and learned alot about the wildlife in Costa Rica.Can't way enough good things about our tour guide Alex he was very informative but didn't talk your ear off. We do plan to return to Costa Rica and spend a week enjoying the wildlife and the other things Costa Rica has to offer. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for a great adventure.
