The guides were absolutely incredible and super accomodating. My husband and I took the trip from Playa Hermosa all the way to La Fortuna on very little sleep - this trip took about 4 hours. We ended up being an hour late to the tour but the guides were incredibly helpful. They picked us up and took us to the tour to meet the rest of the group. Following the La Fortuna hike, waterfall, and lunch, my husband was incredibly tired and still feeling sick from the windy car ride and wanted to go to Tabacon to relax. The guides were super understanding and even went the extra mile of one, dropping us off at our car, and two offered to take us to Tabacon (guide us there in our car.) I was extremely grateful that they would even take us to our car, already going above and beyond, they even offered to escort us to Tabacon! We declined because Tabacon was truthfully a 15-minute drive and pretty easy to find but this is the generosity and helpfulness you can expect from these guides. 10 stars.

We had a wonderful experience on this tour. Our guide Erica was very personable and knowledgable. She had a deep respect for the preservation of nature and love for her home. We are very happy we opted to go with a guided tour; we quite simply would not have seen any wildlife without her keen eye. She went above and beyond to make our wishes of seeing a sloth a reality. We would highly recommend to all travelers. The transportation was clean and air conditioned, and the driver stayed with our belongings during excursions for safekeeping. They took special care when it came to Covid safety as well. Masks were worn during transportation and in all common areas such as lobbies and bathrooms, we were able to take them off while on trails. Hand sanitizer and hand washing was prevalent throughout. We felt very well cared for and safe.

We really waited this tour, as it was our dream destination for a long time ago. Unfortunately it was raining on that day, so the waterfall wasn't that blue, but the experience was still unforgettable! Diego, our tour guide, was the best! He really knows everything about Costa Rica, the ecosystem, all the flowers and animals! He was very patient and we took our time to search for animals and birds. We loved every moment! Thanks so much for this experience!

It was amazing! Gerald was the best tour guide and went over and beyond to make it a special experience! MUCHAS GRACIAS!!! Loved the whole thing and the bird show while I ate was also amazing and unexpected.

Tour guide was amazing, very informative, patient and made the experience more enjoyable. A bit more time in the car than I initially expected but overall worth the views.
