My fiancé and i recently took a trip to the RIU guanacaste to celebrate our engagement and bestrips helped to make it an amazing experience. We thought about booking our tours through the hotel sponsored companies but were introduced to bestrips while on the beach. We were impressed with their brochures and when we learned they could give us a PRIVATE tour for less than the hotel group rates we were sold. The guys were never pushy and didnt mind altering the itineraries to include what we wanted to do.
The morning of our tour to arenal we met our guide "crazy Alex." as soon as he introduced himself I knew we'd have a great time. He was so full of energy and taught us so much about costa rica. We were worried that the 3.5 hr drive to the volcano would be boring but Alex kept us entertained with many jokes and "surprises" along the way. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and having a great time. Our van was clean and cool... Even had a stocked cooler! Alex is also a great photographer. He took my camera for most of the day so my fiancé and I could experience everything without worrying about taking pictures. We have so many great shots of us and the scenery/wildlife. I was thrilled when I got them developed.
Our tour lasted 14 hours and I couldn't believe how smoothly everything went. It was the best part of our stay.
We were so happy with Alex we booked a zip lining/atv tour a fEw days later. Bestrips even took us to the airport after our week was up. They charged significantly less than the hotel shuttle. I would definetly recommend this company to everyone. All the guys were extremely professional and helpful during our stay.
