“Great Shuttle Company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Gray Line did an excellent job shuttling us from location to location during our Costa Rica stay. We booked them for the following transfers: San Jose > Arenal, Monteverde > Guancasta, Gunacaste > San Jose. The drivers were friendly and professional. The onboard internet was intermittent.

“Very satisfied with their services.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

During our most recent trip to Costa Rice, we booked our transfers with Gray Line. Our booking agent, Ingrid, helped set up our itinerary from San Jose to Arenal then to Tamarindo and finally back to San Jose. Everything was perfect, Drivers were on time and got us to our destinations safely and promptly. Each leg of our journey included a rest stop of sufficient time to freshen up and get a quick snack.

“best experience in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

We did a one day tour for Sarapiquí River adventure. We see a lot of animals, including crocodile, cayman, lizard, monkeys, birds... This is the best experience I had in Costa rica! We just booked the river tour, which includes lunch and guide with butterfly garden, snake exhibition (which is very good), and frog pond, for $69 per person, which is of great value.

“Manuel Antonio day trip was great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

We visited Manuel Antonio with Gray Line. It's a long day, and a lot of driving, but we only had a day, and it was worth the time and the money. They try to break up the drive with stops (breakfast, crocodile river, bathrooms etc) and guard your belongings on the beach so you can relax and enjoy the ocean. The white-faced monkeys and the racoons were a highlight, as was the beach itself - warm ocean, clean sand, nice walk to the beach listening to howler monkeys and looking for a sloth ( we saw both.) We only had about 3 hours at the beach itself, but the day was wonderful - they prepare a snack to take to the beach, and a sit-down lunch that you pre-order awaits afterward. They really thought this through very well. The guide, Miza, was extremely friendly and helpful.

“Amazing and unforgettable adventure for travelers of any age.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

I went on the Sarapiqui Canopy and Rainforest Adventure from San Jose with Gray Line Costa Rica. First you will be fed a delicious breakfast followed by a site seeing adventure that first stops at the Doka Coffee plantation, the oldest wet mill in Costa Rica where you will see and learn everything there is to know about how Costa Rica makes it’s world famous coffee (very interesting and beautiful). Next you will see an awe inspiring waterfall followed by one of Costa Rica’s active Volcanoes, Poas. Then you will cruise down the Sarapiqui river in a comfortable boat allowing you to see much of the wildlife that Costa Rica has to offer. We saw crocodiles, alligators, monkeys, several different birds, lizards, etc. At the end of the cruise you will stop for lunch and an optional zip line adventure that takes you soaring through the canopies of the rainforest. There are also exhibits where you can see snakes, butterflies, and frogs.The guide we had, Mauricio, was very funny, extremely accommodating, and very knowledgeable. This is an adventure that any age traveler will not soon forget!
