Communication was a challenge
Susan_C
, Feb. 2022
To start, I am english speaking only. The tour was supposed to pick us up at the hotel, but we were not told we would be contacted by phone to confirm. I had texted the tour operator directly upon booking, but phone number i was given did not work for me. I got an email saying they would cancel my reservation 15 minutes ago. I managed to get ahold of them, and they said they couldn't come to our hotel. They would send an uber and communicate via whatsapp. I don't have that but my companion did. He left his phone for 4-5 minutes and they cancelled to tour AGAIN because he was non responsive. We had to take an Uber on our own dime to a meetup spot. The guide spoke english so quickly and switched back and forth into spanish so quickly I caught 50% of what he was saying. Which wasn't so bad because he was explaining at a grade 4 level including hand gestures. Destination sites were cool and gave a flavour of the region. The included food was decent, though nothing special. Overall the organization of the trip was stressful, and i had trouble with hearing the guide.

The tour of downtown San José was enhanced with local music by a charming gentleman named Sergio. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about San José and Costa Rican history. I highly recommend this tour.

Didn’t show up!

Don’t book with them! The company called 9:30 pm the night before the tour and offered 10 am tour instead of 2:30 pm. Since we had another tour already scheduled in the morning, I said we couldn’t make it and he said he will pick us up at 3 pm. We showed up at the hotel lobby at 3 pm and learned that the driver allegedly showed up at 2:45 and tried to call our room and left. The hotel staff said they didn’t see them show up and no one called our room. They gave a refund; however, since it was last minute cancellation, we couldn’t book another tour and left the city the next day; therefore, we didn’t get to explore San Jose with a tour. I think we were the only ones on that tour that day and they didn’t want to drive out for us on a busy Friday night, so they pretended they came and didn’t. Very disappointing, will never book with them again.

In Costa Rica on Fridays the traffic is horrible, we were trying contact you from 2:00 pm to inform you that we were going to pick you up 15 minutes before, we never got a response and there were other clients waiting for us, and for logistic, we can’t wait any longer. We really sorry. You got your full refund.

llegaron tarde por nosotras. No nos llevaron a todos los museos porque la guía dijo que era tarde. Todo fue a la carrera. El conductor maravilloso y amable. La guía un poco déspota. Al llegar al hotel no habían pasado ni 3 horas y media.
