    Our guide was Manuel B.—very friendly and kind soul. We improvised a bit since my husband and I had come in on a red eye and were exhausted: we needed a low-key day and we’re planning to stay in Monteverde rather than returning back to San Jose. We went on backroads to avoid traffic and drove past smaller towns and hillsides as we asked him more about what it was like to live here, and learned more about Costa Rica culture. Our first stop was to Puntarenas to see the ocean and cool our feet in the water. He found us some coconuts and we had a refreshing drink before driving up to Monteverde. Here we had a wonderful leisurely meal at the Open Kitchen cafe and went to the beautiful and charming Butterfly refuge. Wanting to get back to the hotel for dinner, we made a last stop at the coffee shop at the Monteverde cloud forest preserve. We sat on the porch at the café and listened to and watched multiple hummingbirds feeding. So peaceful and thrilling for us. Bird sounds filled the air. Then back to our hotel. Lovely personalized day! Manuel is a genuine and generous person and we glad to have met him. Wonderful experience!

    My wife and I did the Monteverde and Arenal volcano and hot springs tour from San Jose which were graciously donated by A&E to a benefit auction we attended. Our tour guide and driver were great! They knew all the best spots to stop for photos. We had nice tour companions each day. These tours are 14 hours long with a lot of driving, but we didn't feel rushed. Without an itinerary the first day was very long especially after having to ride along to drop off another group in Jaco then drive back to San Jose. We knew a little better what to expect the second tour and enjoyed it more. I would recommend doing one of the 3 day packages. Coming back to San Jose each night was taxing.

    My cousin and I recently had a short stay in San Jose, We chose this tour and had a MARVELOUS experience with our guide Giovanni. He arrived on time to pick us up from our hotel. From the hotel we headed up to the Volcano- before reaching our destination we stopped at this beautiful coffee shop that had some of the BEST coffee I've ever drank! The cafe overlooked a magnificent coffee farm. Next we stopped at La Paz waterfall and then onto Volcan Paos- the scenes were SPECTACULAR. Giovanni was the PERFECT tour guide! He was extremely personable and I felt like everyone knew him and the tour was very personal and friendly...Giovanni even got the owner Mariella of a local restaurant to create a beautiful fruit boquet for my cousin celebrating her birthday- it was TRULY a perfect day with a perfect guide!! Some things to note...the tour was filled with activity- there was minimal walking and was good for those that are in good shape but you dont need to be super fit- the roads are narrow and EVERYONE in San Jose drives agressively.

    How can I put this into words ,by luck we booked with A&E as always from the UK its all a bit of guess work . What amazing luck apart from being the people that made our holiday fantastic ( we had 5 tours with them ) to people we miss as friends . great knowledge of the areas looking after Me and Maria on every Tour . I can say we miss Costa Rica Now we are home but the last tour we had was like leaving friends .
    If you are going to book a tour in costa Rica book A&E and no one else

    It was our highlight during our stay in San Jose, we did it the day before our flight and it made a difference. The tour guide was amazing and our driver picked us up at our Airbnb, we did a stop for lunch and watch the crocodiles in a river, was nice. It is really worth every penny.

    Like entering Jurassic park. You choose a walking stick ( recommend the bamboo as quite light but sturdy) and which is very helpful for coming back up ! And off you go. Follow the path down - well sign posted and take it slowly ( best step sideways on way down). Lots of spectacular views of the falls on the way down too. About 400 steps. We only saw one other couple on a Saturday afternoon and saw two sloths - what a magical hike. Near il silencio ( about a ten minute drive) which was a fabulous place to then stay for a couple of nights.

    Such a wonderful excursion. The shuttle was on time. We stayed at Airbnb and was only short walk to closest hotel on list. The shuttle ride to get to the adventure park too maybe 1.5hr. We we’re early so we stopped at a small store where we were able to take a short walk to the bridge and you could see many large crocodiles below. The scenery was gorgeous. We then traveled to the adventure park. We purchased the combo zip lining + ATV. We were split in groups of 4 for ATVs and had our own guide. If you chose ATVs, make sure u purchase face bandanna or bring your own. The trail is really dusty. There are lockers available to rent for personal items. It was a $10 (deposit) that will be returned at the end of the day. The guide instructs a brief safety tutorial and take u around test track to ensure you are comfortable with the ATV. You are lead down the trail single file. The trails include a lot of sharp turns, rocky terrain, water puddles, and small hills. You are literally riding through the jungle at one point. There is someone that rides ahead with professional camera to her all these amazing photos are you guys having a blast. You then park for a brisk 10 min walk to the waterfall. Apparently it was dry season when we went, but you can still see the waterfall. There a pool at the end of the waterfall that you have the option of jumping into. Omg! Definitely an experience. The guide instructs you in exactly where to step and how you should jump. Short ride back to front where you have fresh fruit and water waiting for you. The guide also carries water with him as well. A buffet style lunch was served. Food was really good.
    Zip lining followed much. We were fitted with our equipment and placed in groups. We were driven to the first line in a tractor trailer. The guide provided clear and precise instructions mixed with a little humor to ensure everyone’s safety. There was a total of 10 lines. Instructions were given before each line. There a is rest stop 1/2 way where water is provided. Photo op on line 5 or 6 where you have to option to go upside down!!! The entire experience was absolutely amazing. It was my friend’s first time zip lining and riding and ATV and he really enjoyed himself. He could not stop thanking me for booking this excursion. Our pics between the two activities were purchased for $60 usd, totally worth it. They are emailed shortly after purchase. I would highly recommend this excursion. I would definitely go back. Thank you to the entire staff.

    What a great & safe way to visit the must see volcanoes in Costa Rica. Especially during Covid we were happy to have our own personal guide/driver and not have to share the car with other passengers. Our guide Jose was super knowledgeable and made sure we were well informed. He was completely flexible with any of our requests. It was very interesting to drive through neighborhoods and experienced the various forest types from dwarf to cloud. Besides the volcanoes we also walked through a coffee plantation and stopped at the Basilica of our Lady of the Angels. It was completely worth it.

    My nieces, mom, and I recently completed this tour. They were quick in contacting me immediately after the booking. After a small hiccup due to an error in the tour listing, the general manager José went above and beyond in making sure we were satisfied...and we were! We really did feel like we were out and about with a local friend. Our driver was friendly and safe and new the shortcuts to prevent getting stuck in traffic. If you are looking for a reliable and professional company that allows you to plan your own itinerary, then search no more!

    Monteverde is AMAZING, don't get me wrong. However, this tour company posts that this is a tour. This isn't a tour. This is a private transport. I had no guide on my "tour" though the website said I would have a professional guide. I had a taxi driver (who was very nice, by the way), but not a professional guide. Upon arrival, I did the zipline, canopy walk, and ate lunch. These things were arranged for me, yes, but there was no guide. No official tour by any means. If you want an actual tour, make sure you book with a company that will deliver just that or book through the park itself, is my guess. They also made me book a private tour at a higher prices because I was a solo traveler. I paid WAY too much for a solo trip. Should've driven a car up there myself. Hoping to get some of my money back from this "tour."

    We made it home with many fun memories! Thank you for your dedication to make our stay amazing and covid accommodation gave us much relief! Thank you again. Jenny and Julio were our driver and tour guide.... they were A+. We felt taken care of and truly enjoyed their company. They taught us Español and all about the 🇨🇷 Costa Rica way of life. They were so flexible with our needs and covid "speed bumps". This tour is alot of driving though with lots of curvy roads. 6-8 hours of driving per day. Comfortable van that is clean and newer with air conditioning. Plan to wear swimsuit for two days and take your own towels. Bring a nice rain jacket also. Pura Vida! Thanks again Yojhan for being so attentive to our needs...AMAZING JOB!
