“Simply the best!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

My wife had fractured her foot just before our Costa Rican trip and we feared that our day at Adventure Tours would be a washout. A quick phone call in advance and the crew put together a modified day to accommodate her air-cast. Upon arrival we were met by Juan who happily greeted us and explained the days activities, his sense of humour set the pace for what would be an awesome day. After some show & tell with the on site paramedic who checked out my wife's boot, it was off to the zip lines. Elmer, Carlos & Jordi were fantastic ensuring that the missus thoroughly enjoyed every zip line, she was able to do everything but hang up side down and the free rappel. A horse back ride to the waterfalls followed, and then it was time for a wonderful buffet lunch. We had to opt out of tubing and the second zip line, but a tour of the snake exhibits with Allan was substituted in. While snakes wouldn't normally be high on my list of things to do, Allan was absolutely incredible! He is knowledgable, passionate, and dedicated to these reptiles so much so that despite being bitten by a poisonous snake a few days earlier, he laughingly told us of the experience and felt that now he achieved valuable insight by being bitten!

I should also mention that the hacienda is gorgeous, other staff are plentiful and helpful, and that Hacienda Guachipelin is a first rate company that is worth every penny of your vacation dollar...highly recommmended.

“Zipline Canopy Tour”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

My spouse and I (in our early 60s) did this tour in September 2013 while we were staying at the Hacienda. It was fun. We did a number of ziplines through and across the canyon plus a couple of rappels. Some nice adrenaline rushes. Did not try the upside-down approach but several in our group did. Beautiful setting for these activities. The crew was organized and professional, and the gear seemed top-notch. Definitely something to try if you have the opportunity!

“Total Action Adventure”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We zip lined, rode horses, tubed down 4km of class 3 rapids, and ended the tour with hot springs and you can put on mud to cleanse your skin if you prefer before you get in the natural hot springs. Freddy, Felix, and his band of tour guides were fun and very safety conscious. OSHA would be proud. It was an incredible for me and my wife. It is a must do.

“Our best day in Costa Rica”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We spent a whole day here on the adventure package, it was worth every penny! We had so much fun, the zip lining and tubing were absolutely fantastic....we laughed so much! The staff were super friendly and well organised. The 3 course lunch was delicious. All in all, this was probably our best day in Costa Rica. Great value for money and highly recommended.
