I would definitely do this trip again !!

This was an extremely well-planned tour. Gary, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and Jun our driver was so affable, sweet and drove excellently . I could not have asked for a better pair!! The volcano was beyond beautiful and we got some wonderful photos! The waterfalls at La Paz are so worth the trek! Excellent tour! Thank you Gary and Jun!!
Fantastic Tour

Fantastic excursion. It was a clear sunny May day. Thanks to Roberto for driving and the to Donald our tour guide. Great Job! I would totally recommend this tour. It is a great taste of Costa Rica; visually and literally!! You get typical Costa Rican breakfast and lunch on the tour!! Muchas gracias y Pura Vida!!!

The tour guide was very informative. The volcano was really cool. There were 3 different waterfalls at La Paz and lots of animals.
A must do day trip!
, May 2022
Great day trip! Donald is an excelente guide! The coffee estate is beautiful and exciting. At the vulcano we get lucky and the clouds cleared out so we get to see the crater. The gardens and the waterfalls are breathtaking. Thank you for the day!
A great introduction to San Jose, Costa Rica
, May 2022
A really great day trip, especially if you have limited time to spend in San Jose. Martin was a great tour guide. We got an unfortunate puncture but support was not long arriving. Wonderful sights and sounds. Pack for rainy weather for the afternoon
Great as solo traveller
, Apr. 2022
Perfect comfortable day trip from San Jose if you are only there for a short trip. Comfortable van as a ride with Yunan as a great safe driver, Jose is knowledgeable and could answer any questions. Thank you both, had a good time!
Amazing trip!!
, Mar. 2022
This tour was amazing! Our tour guide Aidan was so knowledgeable and friendly - he ensured he spoke to everyone and was so smiley and happy. We gained a great insight into the production of coffee and got to try a variety of different types. The paos volcano was stunning and we were so lucky that the weather was perfect and sunny so we could see everything so clearly. The gardens were spectacular and out of this world. I would highly recommend this trip and asking for Aidan as your guide.
Fun and educational

Max was a fun, charismatic, knowledgeable guide and we had a blast! We learned a ton and embraced his enthusiasm for his culture and the experiences he shared. Would book again.
Very much worth taking.

Three places are really AMAZING, it was a great experience for my trip to Costa Rica. the guides are really kind and answer all the questions that you have
A very loooong day (6amish-6pmish!)
, Mar. 2022
Unfortunately, my main goal in booking this day trip was to see the volcano's crater, but it was completely clouded over (i.e., we saw nothing!). I've read previously that this oftentimes happens if you go too late in the morning, and because of this tour's schedule, we only got to it past 10am... This day wasn't totally a waste of time though, since I enjoyed visiting the animal rescue centre at LaPaz waterfalls and hiking to see the waterfalls. The breakfast/lunch were also very good, as was the tour guide (he was very knowledgeable!). Unfortunately, it takes an hour or so from the waterfalls back into San Jose (4pmish dpt), and then another hour or so to drop off everyone at their hotel (so this makes for a very looooong day!).

Amazing!! 100% worth the price and time. The whole day was well organized, full of rich information, beautiful scenery, and great tour guides!
Wonderful tour and experience!
, Mar. 2022
What a wonderful trip! My mom and I had the best time and thought this tour was a nice mix of seeing a lot of things but not feeling too rushed. Our guide Adrian was wonderful- fun, funny, and full of information. The coffee plantation was interesting even though we aren’t coffee drinkers. The real highlight of this trip was, of course, Poás, which we were lucky enough to get to see in pretty clear conditions. Finally, the La Paz waterfall gardens was super fun! We had time to see all of the rescued animals at the sanctuary, eat lunch, and see all of the waterfalls. It was an exhausting day but 100% worth it, especially if you don’t have a ton of time in Costa Rica and want to pack as much as possible into one day.
Basically good tour
, Mar. 2022
Basically a good tour, but could have been a better experience if the tour description had been more specific/accurate . In the few days previous to the tour I sent four messages (through two different platforms) to the host regarding my pick-up location. None of my messages was answered and I had to walk to the pick-up location. Although it was a full day tour, no water was available on the bus. Visiting the waterfalls involved lots and lots of slippery steps...really tough if you have any knee issues. Also, we were not advised ahead of time to make sure we brought ponchos...incredible as it seems not everyone understands that if you visit a rainforest, you will get wet. Our guide, Max, was great!

Great day
, Mar. 2022
Three experiences in one day yet ample time to relax. Our guide, who conducted the tour in English and Spanish, was terrific. All three sites were informative, enjoyable and worth the time to see and learn more about Costa Rica. Overall, really great experience that both my wife and I enjoyed immensely.
Amazing experience.
, Feb. 2022
Excellent tour! We traveled with our two young daughters and my 8 year old even commented how much she enjoyed the coffee farm (she hadn't been looking forward to that part before the tour but ended up loving it). Max was very patient with our daughters and an excellent guide! We are so happy that we went with this tour!
Amazing, book this tour!

We had Donald as our guide and he was amazing. Very knowledgeable, friendly and answered all questions. Overall amazing experience and would absolutely recommend. The breakfast was really good and the lunch buffet had a big selection and was really good too!

, Feb. 2022
Out guide Donald was great. He taught us soo much at each location. The timing was great. Didn't feel rushed or too much sit around time. We didn't want a 3 to 4 hour bus ride like some of the other day tours from San Jose so this was the perfect tour to get into the mountains and cloud forest without having to deal with a long ride.
