Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had an awesome time on this tour! Our tour guide was Danny and he was amazing! Hew as super knowledgeable about everything that we saw and he pointed out a lot of really cool animals for us to see. We even got to see a sloth up close. It's a must do if you're in Guanacaste/Tamarindo

    Jairo Tours was the absolute best experience. I looked through the reviews and realized that others were just afraid as me to participate in all the adventures. Also a plus of picking us up from Dreams. Upon arrival Maria Nela met us at our resort, and her warm sweet personality let me know I was going to be in good hands. My husband and I chose the Mega Tour, through fear and all we completed 7 zip lines, 400 meters water slide, hiked to the water fall, horse back riding, ate an amazing buffet, participated in juicing sugar cane, visited the cultural center, took a dip in the hot springs and had a volcanic mud bath. The tour will always be memorable ! When fear started to sit in I talked to Maria Nela and she always convinced us to keep going, she even helped us brush up on our Español.

    We left the hotel and took about one hour before we reached what our guide described as a garden, well it didn’t look a garden to me as it was like walking into the rainforest, very close to nature.
    Our guide was very knowledgeable and was pointing out all the fauna and flora we came across, also he was using a telescope, helping us spotting it better and take beautiful pictures.
    We were a bit skeptical about spotting a sloth as they’re quite difficult to see but after a couple of minutes we saw the first one and few minutes later we had a closer encounter.
    All in all was amazing and I would highly recommend it.

    Everything from pick up to drop off was great. David was our tour guide. We spotted toucans on the way. We were the only people, so we had a private tour, which was nice.

    Amazing excursion. Our tour guide, Jason, was incredible! Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and really cared about what we wanted to do. We first went to the waterfall, Rio Celeste, the "hike" was pretty easy but there are pretty steep stairs (248 steps) going down to the waterfall. Going up, definitely had to take a couple breaks but was definitely doable. Well worth it. We saw lizards and amazing plants we even spotted a baby viper and a green forest snake, it was awesome! He gave us the option to do a 3 hour round hike but we didnt want to at the time, but loved that we had that option. We then go to swim in a little river where the waterfall went into. From there we ate at a local restaurant and the food was great. The service as well. Inside there was even a butterfly sanctuary and it was amazing! So many beautiful butterflies! (No Disney pun intended.) From there we went to a nature sanctuary. There were some cool farm animals we saw. Then once we started the walk we saw sloths! We saw babies, nocturnal ones, and got pretty close to one! It was so amazing! The tour guide was awesome. Showed us frogs, lizards, insects, amazing plants. Our whole group had an amazing day! Jason pointed out local volcanoes and even gave us the option to go on the magnetic road that pulls cars. Some group members were tired so we didnt but Jason really gave us great options to see even more of Costa Rica! I would definitely recommend this excursion, you see so much and have a really great time!

    First time in Costa Rica for my husband and I. We wanted to do different activities but we didn’t know where to start since there’s so much to do in Costa Rica. We found Gabriel’s tours online and based on his review we can say it was all true!!! What an amazing experience it was with him. Gabriel is super nice and knowledgeable about everything in Costa Rica. He was on time when he picked us up and always communicating with us via text or even calling us to make sure we were taken care of. He gave great suggestions. We spent two entire days with him. It was very comfortable being with him. The van he drives was roomy for our stuff that we carried to change between activities. I speak Spanish but my husband doesn’t and Gabriel was able to communicate with both of us. It was great! His English is great! But most of all he has a wonderful and kind attitude. Like we mentioned he picked us up early in the morning and even late at night dropping us off at our hotel he was still smiling! Even on our last day he even called us to make sure we made it on our flight safe and thanked us for hiring him. Now that’s great customer service! It’s always great to meet people like that when you are on vacation and doing tours it makes it a pleasant experience. If you are planning a trip to CR you MUST contact Gabriel. You won’t regret it!!! You will feel SAFE and you will enjoy the experience as he guides you through your tour! It was a wonderful experience. We will definitely be calling Gabriel for our next visit!

    Eugene was a terrific tour guide for the day. We stopped at a waterfall, had a delicious authentic Costa Rican meal that was tailored to our dietary restrictions, hiked through a nature reserve where we saw sloths, snakes, toucans, and much more. Highly recommend!
