Ferando Moss was amazing. He gave us all of his attention and showed us around a lot. Not only does he get up at 3:30 to make sure he gets us on time, but makes sure that we get there safe!!! I 100% would go on another ride with with them. Please have Fernado Moss be your driver next time! :)

Yordan was a great tour guide. I am an exchange student from the united states and he went out of his way to teach me things about costa rican culture on top of an already amazing tour. also, he went out of his way to make sure i got home safely the night after the tour, as i am a female traveling solo, and so it was much appreciated. highly recommend!!!

This was a great tour! Our tour guide Fernando Moss was excellent!! His commentary was interesting and entertaining. He is knowledgeable about his country and culture. Most importantly we felt safe traveling all around the region with him as our driver. At times the winding road was foggy or it was pouring rain.
