Ronnie is an amazing tour guide, we learned so much about Costa Rica, he is very knowledgeable and passionate! The volcano was an amazing experience as well as a tour of Cartago city and the valley. Our lunch was at a coffee plantation it was magical. Will definitely be coming back to Costa Rica to explore more!

Our tour guide Ronnie was really knowledgeable and flexible. Great excursion if you want a day trip that covers a lot of ground . The volcano was the highlight for me! Thanks to Christian the driver who got us there and back safely and comfortably.

We took advantage of a driver guide for us which allowed us to discover atypical places on the route La pura vida in Costa Rica

It was very worth it. We were very happy with the information, the organization and the food. Widely recommended. PURE LIFE!

Very nice visit! Our guide Edgar was very interesting and he knew a lot about the area. We recommend this tour!
