after booking this tour company through the Marriott Courtyard - SJO Alajuela airport, for their 'Adventure Combo", we waited from 6:00 am (the designated hotel pick-up time) to 7:10 am...they Never Showed despite the hotel calling them 3 time to confirm they were "on their way". Recommendation: Find/book a different tour operator. FYI, fortunately the day was saved when Monica... More

The rainforest tour attractions are good, however the pick-up logistics of this company was terrible. They picked me up at 5:50am at my hotel, two hours later they finished picking up all tourists and started the driving to our destination. There was a traffic jam for about one hour near the forest due to construction work. It was a very... More

We booked the Combo Tour before arriving in Costa Rica - about three weeks early. Cindy was very helpful with providing information and getting the reservation booked ahead of time. By the time we arrived in Costa Rica, Poas Volcano was erupting, causing part of our tour to be cancelled. Cindy was right on top of things - she contacted... More

We prepaid on line before we left for Costa Rica and at the hotel was told this was the tour they recommend. We were ready at 6:00 Am although a family in our group went into breakfast at the hotel so we were delayed waiting for them to join us. The pick up of guests went smoothly and was certainly...

I would like to say MUCHAS GRACIAS!! To Donald and Enrique, our tour guide and driver. We enjoyed our day on the combo tour so much and it was a perfect way to start our trip in Costa Rica! And I believe we were lucky to go when we did, as Poas erupted a few days ago and is now... More

Combo Tour, I paid $129 online with credit card on Friday for a Sunday tour. Pick up at my hotel was 5:45am (sharp!), which at first I was grumpy about, but then realized why. We were first at the Doka Coffee Plantation for breakfast (very relaxing), and then got in way ahead of a looooooong (maybe 2 km?) line of... More

Great tour for getting to know a bit of the local culture, enjoy and respect the amazing environment and nature and have good food. Our guide was fun and did a superb job telling us everything in Spanish and in English - understanding both languages, double the fun :) Great stories, the volcano was beautiful, the natural hot spring and...

My friend I was with said this deserved a 3 but the guide deserved a 1. The locations we went to- Doka Coffee, Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfalls- were all amazing and worth dealing with the guide on the bus trip and the locations. The bus driver was also very pleasant and sweet, checking on everyone and making conversation. The... More
