I booked 3 tours (San Luis Canopy, Arenal Volcano and Hot Springs, and Tortuga Island Day Cruise. All 3 of the tours were great! I recommend going on any or all of them. Our tour guides were very friendly and helpful. The food was amazing at all of the tours.

The guide was great and the driver was too. When we arrived at the starting point, the rain arrived. We all bought... More

Valle Dorado's website was a wealth of useful information -- answering lots of questions on things we could not piece together from other online research. Based on that favorable impression, we engaged Valle Dorado for private car transport within Costa Rica. It was an excellent decision. We enjoyed prompt, professional and friendly service (in fluent English, as our Spanish was... More

I used Valle Dorado to coordinate a white water rafting trip while in San Jose. Their communication was excellent, and Hellen was great about ensuring all the details were handled. I would use them again.

I booked the one day white rafting rafting with Valle Dorado Tours and had a wonderful day. I got picked up right on time, we went for breakfast first which had lots of fresh fruit. The white water rafting was so much fun and went through this beautiful river!

We LOVED our trip to Poás & Doka coffee plantation & La Paz! Valle Dorado picked us up at the Tennis Club in San José right on schedule.
