    Excellent tour and highly recommended ! There aren’t many reviews online for this tour as Olman only recently set up the TripAdvisor listing, but I looked at the Google reviews and booked last minute. I have to say that this was for me the best tour I’ve been on - some incredible bits of nature and species on show too.

    Olman is very personable, knowledgeable about all the attractions and a great tour guide.

    I highly recommend you to book even without the masses of reviews. I look forward to returning to Costa Rica to catch up with Olman at some point in the future too :)

    Our day was perfect. The weather completely cooperated. The driver was very nice and accommodating. He gave us as much time as we needed at each location.

    We went on this tour as part of a larger tour of CR. The included buffet lunch was very tasty and they were very strict with COVID measures. The tour included a short video and coffee tasting demonstration. The tour guide was very informative and funny. We also walked though a portion of the coffee plants to see the forest like set-up in which they are grown. It was pouring rain but we were still able to get all parts of the tour in. Lots of coffee to purchase at the gift shop and they will ship coffee and chocolate purchases over $30 at no charge.

    Great for anyone who loves coffee and wants to learn about the history, the travels, and the processes of coffee. The tour guide was absolutely delightful; you could really tell that he truly loves coffee and what he does!

    Our family of 5 had an educational, delicious, and fun tour with Marcos. We signed up last minute for a Christmas Eve tour of the market and they accommodated us. We all learned a lot about the history, culture and food of Costs Rica. Marcos’ stories were engaging and kept everyone’s attention the entire time, Having done many private tours in our travels, we rate this as one of our favorites! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn about San Jose and experience the market with a local.

    If you are looking for a “budget friendly tour” and have a short time to spend in Costa Rica, then you should take this tour.
    Don Ricardo was very kind, patient, and fun, besides he is a great driver.
    I enjoy shopping souvenirs in Sarchi, as well as spending time in the butterfly garden at Doka coffee farm. The grounds in the coffee farm are lovely!

    Our guide, Gerardo, was fantastic. He was informative, pleasant, friendly, helpful, prompt - everything one could ask for in a guide. He spoke beautiful English and helped my husband with his Spanish. The tour of Doka Estate was a wonderful and informative primer on coffee - how it's grown & processed. Grecia is lovely, the Metal Church is beautiful. And, at Sarchi we saw the 90+ year old factory which is still in pretty decent working order. Large variety of souvenirs at the store, too. All in all, it was a really fun day.

    I am a big believer in feedback and have written hundreds of reviews all over the world; I hope you find my review helpful.
    Our tour exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide was Iva who spoke perfect English and taught us all about the history coffee had on Costa Rica and San Jose... and did it with passion and enthusiasm. We sampled some insanely good coffee and never felt pressured to buy any coffee, however we did purchase some that we sampled. Iva made the tour a highlight of our trip and we came away feeling even more curious and fascinated about coffee. Pura Vida!

    Interesting tour with a very able guide providing a timely and competent service. Car was clean, well maintained and well driven , coffee farm tour was conducted by The Owner’s staff and was very informative. Lunch was provided at a local roadhouse in the company of the guide which made for a pleasant one on one discussion.
