We had a great time on this day tour from San Jose! Edgar was our guide and Daniel was our driver. Edgar was very entertaining and informative. Stayed with the group throughout each stop and ensured no one was ever left behind. The Doka coffee stop had delish coffee and was relaxing. We had a beautiful clear morning and had perfect views of the Volcano crater. We were actually higher than the clouds and that was awesome! We stopped at a strawberry place where we sampled some super fresh strawberries, wine and cheese. Amazing! Finally we went to the La Paz Waterfall Garden and that was breathtaking. FYI there are a lot of steps but it was very much worth it. Plus we traveled with small group and we all became friends by the end of the day! The day was organized well and hotel pickup/drop off was appreciated. We definitely recommend! Thank you Dainel and Edgar!

A wonderful day

We were lucky to visit the Poas volcano on a clear day, and the view into the crater was amazing. The waterfalls at the La Paz Waterfall garden were also fantastic— lots of platforms to allow you to get near the rushing waters of the three volcanoes. Our guide, Fila, was knowledgeable and friendly. I highly recommend this tour

Beautiful stops in Costa Rica

I’m rating this a 3 because the tour concept is amazing. All of the stops are incredible and we would do it again in a heartbeat. However, our tour guide would spend about 80 percent of the tour Spanish speaking and only about 20 percent in English so we definitely felt left out. He would give them all of the info along the ride so they knew what to prepare for and then rushed to give us the cliff notes as we were transitioning and couldn’t really soak it in.

Your feedback is so important to us as it helps us improve any detail on every tour. All our guides are trained in both languages and the tour must be provided 100% in both languages in case of having passengers from different languages. However, we will verify precisely your case, so that it does not happen again in the future. We appreciate the information provided and for allowing us to serve you.

This was an amazing tour! Our guide was so knowledgeable and explained so much history and culture throughout the day. Every stop was beautiful, plus he allowed for some extra stops for pictures and to buy fresh strawberries along the way. I highly recommend.

The tour was suppose to be in English and the tour guy gave it in Spanish. My daughter and husband were clueless. It was a 10 tour which only lasted 8 hours. The other person on the tour paid 135.00, I payed 150.00 per each of us.

Dear customer, thank you very much for your comment about the tour. As our clients are the most important thing for our company, we have carried out an investigation about the tour, and this is the information we have in the report of our Operations Department, where the guide and the driver give their point of view. REPORT: In relation to the tour to the coffee plantations, Poás Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens in the name of Mrs. Leydy Valdes, accompanied by her husband Mr. Eufemio and her daughter Sophia made on Saturday, May 8 along with Mrs. Auria Abad, a citizen of Peru, Mr. Oscar Sandoval, professional bilingual tour guide states that the family was picked up at 7:45 am at the Hotel Mango located diagonal to the international airport in Alajuela. At thet the time of boarding the van and introduce the participants of the tour, Mrs. Valdes and Mr. Eufemio greeted and introduced themselves in Spanish language, saying that she is Cuban, Eufemio from Puerto Rico and her daughter from the state of New Jersey, where they currently live, which caused that throughout the course of the tour they spoke Spanish with Mrs. Auria from Peru. At no, at no time was I instructed to speak in English, a language I am fluent in as it is usually the official language of the tours we operate and I would have gladly spoken in both languages. The tour included a visit to the coffee plantations with plenty of time to walk among the coffee plants, we visited at 10:20 am the Poas volcano national park and finally we visited at 12:30 pm the La Paz waterfalls park and wildlife sanctuary with buffet lunch included. The visitors did not bring ponchos to protect themselves from the rain and were given one for each person, which Mr. Eufemio thanked us with a tip. Mr. Eufemio said that upon arrival at the Mango Hotel, they would drive to the Pacific coast to stay at the El Parador Hotel and thanked us for arriving back at the hotel at 4:30 p.m. and again he was very generous in tipping us for the services received. Mrs. Leydy never expressed her dissatisfaction or disagreement with the development of the tour, so I do not understand. She was happy al the time as well as all the passengers. When we arrived at the Hotel Mango they said goodbye very respectfully and gratefully to Mr. Pablo Guevara, the driver of the minibus and also to me. Regarding the price, the tour has the same cost for all passengers. However, in the case of the passenger from Peru, she was reported directly from a Hotel in the city, and we do not have precise information on how much she paid, since we process the invoice directly to the Hotel for the total cost of our services. I hope this information is to your satisfaction and once again we appreciate your time and comment.

Amazing trip with the nature of Costa Rica

1. Poas Volcano - 95 / 100 It was awesome to visit. But depends on the weather condition, it could be better to see the volcano. And there is coffe shop, and try Chai latte. Perfect! 2. Coffee Plantations 85 / 100 If you are a big fan of coffee, you will love it. The coffee is good in cafe. Recommend to buy coffee products, not other shop in local. 3. La Paz Waterfall Gardens 110 / 100 Awesome! Dont miss it. Save time for this place. Feel the natural of Costa Rica! In general, I would like to recommend this trip. (4.5 / 5)

Muy completo, visítamos primeramente un cafetal y disfrutamos un riquísimo café, después visitamos el cráter del volcán activo poas tuvimos mucha suerte en verlo muy claramente. Disfrutamos de una reserva donde vimos flora y fauna de la zona. Además vimos las cascadas… nos encantó su magia.
