Just got back from a 1 week trip to Costa Rica. Spent 3 days with Mike as our tour guide and would highly recommend him to others.
I gave him a list of some of the attractions we were interested in, and he helped create the intinerary. He was flexible to rearrange his days based on the weather, which made for better viewing of some weather dependent attractions.
He picked us up at the airport and drove us to our hotel. We took a day trip to the butterfly gardens tour and Sarchi oxcart shops; a day trip to Poas volcano and La Paz Waterfall gardens; and a day trip to the Sarapiqui River with a chocolate making tour at a local nature reserve. The latter 2 days were definitely the best 2 days of our trip.
Mike is a wealth of knowledge about Costa Rica and is willing to answer questions (or give his opinions) on almost any topic you can think of. English is his first language - which is worth mentioning as we struggled a bit on one other day of our trip when the tourguide (through a different company) had a bit of trouble finding the right words in English...
He provides a very personable approach, is patient with young kids and is overall very eager to make your experience in Costa Rica a good one. A much different feel than taking an impersonal bus trip to the tourist attractions...
Prices are fair and his 2 vehicles are well maintained. Would highly recommend him for your trip!
