Our tour had to be altered just a bit because the Poas Volcano tour (had to be aborted due to unsafe activity at the crater, it erupted the next morning!!), Canopy Cable zip-line, and 2 waterfalls La Paz and San Fernando, with a...

My wife and I booked the two waterfalls tour with the river cruise, Poas Volcano and coffee plantation stop. OMG! This tour is just amazing. Everything was so beautiful. Mike picked us up at our hotel right on schedule and spoke about everything you could imagine to keep us informed about Costa Rica and the things we were seeing. Just... More

We had a memorable outing to a coffee plantation, two picturesque waterfalls and Sarapiqui rain-forest boat trip. Mike was very informative and bilingual which was very helpful to us Americans. I especially enjoyed the restaurant which had good food and lots of birds to view in the wild. The passion fruit drink, which Mike recommended was delicious.Mike was very courteous... More

My husband and I hired Mike for two tours -- one before and one after we had a group tour in Costa Rica. For the first day, we had planned to visit Poas and other sites on the Caribbean side of the central mountains, but it was unusually rainy. So Mike suggested we visit the Pacific coast instead, including a... More

Best experience ever in Costa Rica. We booked Mike for the "2 Volcanoes and via 2 Waterfalls Combination Day Tour" and ended up booking him also next day. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, nature oriented and courteous. He was very patient with my brother who LOVES taking pictures. He stops on the road for scenic pictures. Good sense of humor. You...

We had a full week with Mike of Paradise Tours.

A personal, very knowledgeable, friendly and unhurried, our English speaking guide knew every nook and corner of the area, and brought us to out of the ordinary places that standard tours don't - this was the best tour and best guide we could have asked for, much above our expectations- highly recommend- ask for Mike if available.

We booked three different tours with Mike. He was knowledgeable and courteous. We had a great time exploring the country! Mike went above and beyond to ensure that we got great photo opportunities. He was also flexible and didn't mind adjusting plans when our 7 year old got tired and cranky. We recommend Paradise Tours and would use them again.

I booked a half day personal tour of the Poas Volcano Park/ 2 Waterfalls tour with Mike. I don't think you will find a more knowledgeable tour guide in all of Costa Rica! This man knows his history of the area as well as his way around town. I think the price was very reasonable for a personal tour tailored... More
