    My son and I had a great experience in our visit to Poas volcano, La Paz waterfalls and Doka coffee plantation.. We enjoy beautiful views, people and delicious coffee and food. Memories that are worst the time and money expended.

    Great value and a very fun walking tour. Included many tasty samples in the Central Market and Farmers Market. Very informative and even included some cultural stops at various monuments and buildings. Ended with a homemade tamale and a platano empanada making lesson with coffee. Delicious!!

    We had a wonderful day exploring with Giovanni and Ramon. The waterfall was beautiful and the Hot springs were very enjoyable. The lunch and dinner were also quite good.

    In October 2023 we went to Costa Rica for the Caribbean carnival in Limón and to visit the capital San José. In San José we booked the Day Tour to Poás Volcano, Café Doka and La Paz Waterfalls, to enjoy what the city and Costa Rica has to offer. It was an amazing tour, one of the best I ever experienced while travelling.

    The tour included entrance to the Poas Volcano,
    entrance to the Doka estate coffee farm and plantation with breakfast prior to the tour, and entrance to La Paz Waterfall Gardens (La Paz Waterfall). Also breakfast and lunch were included. It was a great experience, the guide was very knowledgeable about all sights, only thing was to not have rushed to see the waterfalls and have more time to take more quality pictures. He just wanted us to be there before the waterfalls were going to get more crowded with other tourists. I get that, but in this group there were also people above middle age, so just for safety concern and keep physical condition of each group in mind, a slower pace was appreciated.

    More a tour + local dinner than cooking class. Our guide Angel was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and passionate about Costa Rican history. We were able to stop by a local coffee shop to taste coffee from a local plantation. The food and drinks were delicious and I recommend this tour as the first thing you do when in San Jose so you can get acquainted with the city as well as have potential tourists to connect with while visiting.

    Amazing tour! You can’t miss this one. I’m an avid traveler and I’ve done a million tours. This was by far the best I’ve ever been on. Our tour guide Agustin and driver Marco were so kind and friendly. Agustin had so much knowledge and passion for his country and culture. It was infectious. La Paz waterfalls and wildlife refuge were beautiful. So worth the making the trip to Costa Rica!

    Well planned out and beautiful island. Only drawback was that I felt the Spanish version of descriptions was much longer than the English, it was very obvious. I mentioned to my son who was with us that I felt we werent getting the full details. He speaks Spanish fluently. He laughed and said we definitely were getting a shortened version. That was a bit dissapointing.

    We had a great time on the way to, at and back from the park. Our guide Arthur was amazing. He was very informative and attentive. On the way there he provide so many interesting facts and pointed lots of things out. The breakfast and lunch were tasty too. We saw lots of animals and the beach is gorgeous!

    Perfect, perfect trip!!!! Harlem and Carlos were the most amazing tour guides; they were so knowledgeable of everything about the area and even brought us to special detours for local food and animal sightings. 10/10 could not be better!

    In October 2023 we went to Costa Rica for the Caribbean carnival in Limón and to visit the capital San José. We booked the San Jose Walking and Bus City Tour, to see some of the landmarks of the city San José. It's quite an expensive tour to be honest, so you expect more.

    They picked us up on time at the hotel, even before the scheduled time as we were still having breakfast and the driver nicely waited a few minutes for us. All in all it was a good experience and the music in the bus was nice. A little more freedom and time at the central market would've been nice to see more of the market to get familiar with their tropical fruits and vegetables. The food at the restaurant, at the end of the tour for lunch, was very good.

    Great experience! My first time zip lining and it was one of the best excursions I did in CR. Diego and Leo were amazing guides and I felt safe the entire time. Would highly recommend anyone to book with them! The 15 minute hike was worth the fun I had

    There were only 6 of us on tour. We were shown the highlights of San Jose. Our guides were knowledgeable and went out of their way to be helpful and flexible. As part of the tour you get a lovely coffee. It gave us such a great insight into the history, country and Capital.

    The tour guide was very good and made extra effort to show us as many animals on the way. The boat operator was very good. This tour should be done only during the turtles egg laying season.
