Raul and Ellio were awesome, awesome, aweosme. We cannot say enough how great our guides were and how wonderful of an experience this was. Highly recommend. The bridges were amazing, the waterfall was so much fun and the volcano hike with the panoramic view was 1,000% worth it!

Fabulous day
Claire_M, Apr 2024
We had an excellent day. There were just 3 of us with guide, Tony, and a driver. The description on the Viator site wholly understates how good it is. Hanging bridges - easy walk but with Tony we saw Spider monkeys, blue jean frogs, toucans, howler monkeys, viper snake, multiple spiders. Absolutely great. Then fresh fruit laid out by driver (pineapple, watermelon) before driving 25 minutes to La fortuna waterfall, There are 500 steps but can take it at your own pace down and back up. Lunch was at Rainforest explorers - cooked just for us, a traditional casado plate with choice of fish, chicken or beef with water or watermelon juice and coffee. Then onto Arenal volcano to walk along 1968 lava trail, Walking sticks provided. Our guide really made the day , explaining about the animals, plants, volcano, history etc. We did whole tour in about 7 hours including lunch. We are fast walkers and didn't swim at the volcano,

All of it was great. Make SURE to have water shoes for the waterfall visit. Tour guides were amazing. Highly recommend.
Do this your first day of vacation!

Perfect first day activity! We saw and did so much! Our guide, Christian was so knowledgeable and friendly. You should be in good shape for this tour- lots of hiking, but totally worth it!
Amazing, beautiful and totally worth it!

This activity was wonderful! They picked us on time at our hotel! Our guide isaac was really passionate and explained us a lot of things about animals and the places! He also spotted a lots of animals that were well hidden and showed them to us! The meal was the most délicious that we ate in our whole trip im Costa Rica! The guide explained us that it was not an open restaurant, you can only eat this meal if you book this activity! I highly recommend it! They were very attentive about us and very sympathic! The views were beautiful and everything was really safe! I expected this to be physically difficult but it was not bad! We enjoyed it a lot!
Worth it!

Best experience in Costa Rica. Febreezio & Hymiene were both wonderful. We saw many animals at the Hanging Bridges- saw both types of sloths, not to mention the photos our tour guide was able to take were phenomenal. Febreezio was both Informative and humorous. Definitely recommend.
Isaac did a wonderful job...
Christine_P, Feb 2024
Isaac did a wonderful job guiding us on this tour with interesting stories and facts about the area and Costa Rica in general. The added touch of the family lunch only for tour guests was the cherry on top! While we didn’t see the volcano because it was raining during the dry season… the group made up for feeling disappointed about that!
Spectacular tour
Jodi_A, Feb 2024
Our guide was fun and most knowledgeable - memories to last a lifetime! We enjoyed every minute. We saw slithers, toucans and so many other birds
Wish we could give more stars!
Barbara_S, Feb 2024
The day of our tour was very rainy but our excellent guide Tony made the day completely spectacular regardless of the weather. On all hikes he shared interesting facts about the beautiful surroundings, the history of the areas and points about the animals he and the driver went out of their way spotting for us to enjoy! The lunch stop was AMAZING! Excellent authentic Costa Rican food and the friendliest hosts in their ranch home by the river. This trip is well worth the price and we’d give it 10 stars if we could! Pura Vida!

Isaac was an amazing and knowledgeable guide. The weather wasn’t the greatest but he kept our small group engaged with stories about the local people and the animals, birds, and plants we encountered.

Day in Arenal

Awesome adventure. Such a knowledgeable tour group who made the trip truly remarkable ! From pickup to drop off Isaac was a wealth of information!
Great tour despite the weather
Marius_H, Dec 2023
Despite the weather being awful, our guide Jason made this tour a success. He was very knowledgeable and engaging. All three elements: the hanging bridges, the waterfall and the volcano hike were interesting and fun in their own right. A great way to see some of the highlights if you've got limited time in the Arenal volcano area.
This combination tour is a fantastic experience!
Laura_P, Dec 2023
Terrific guides and super attentive and knowledgeable about Costa Rica fauna and flora. Our lunch was one of the most memorable from our trip, and Oscar made even the bus ride a great experience. 100% recommend!
Great guides! Great locations!

My wife and I took the 3-in-1 tour in Nov 2023. Because of an issue with our hotel (long stupid story), we took the tour over two different days. On day one, we went with Julio (guide) and Jamie (driver). Amazing pair! Jamie has eagle eyes! Look! A sloth! (stops the car) Julio would grab his scope and focus in on it. Didn't matter if we were heading to the waterfall or to the volcano. Great pair! The waterfall was very beautiful. Long hike down....even longer hike back up. Water was cold. We did NOT swim, but lots of others swam. The volcano hike was tricky. Thank goodness that Jamie and Julio offered everyone a walking stick (other tourist were VERY jealous of that!) Amazing commentary about the sites, and flora and fauna along the way. Five stars to both of them. Don't take a backpack with a bunch of stuff to the volcano. You only need water and your walking stick. The next day, Jamie and Kenny (guide) picked us up for our Hanging Bridge tour. Again...Jamie (and Kenny too) has an eagle eye for spotting animals. The hanging bridge tour was very interesting. Lots of animals....spiders, snakes, frogs, monkeys, birds...and birds and birds! We are really thankful that the company could break this tour into two days. Great support from the office. Both Julio and Kenny are amazing naturalist. Very concerned about the environment, the rainforest, the animals and their country. We really loved the tour!
Jam packed day!
Robyn_B, Nov 2023
Our guide Oscar and our driver Johan we’re both amazing! Oscar was hilarious and amazing at spotting wildlife. Johan pulled over on our way between destinations to spot wildlife, and always had water and snacks on hand. This combo tour is perfect if you have limited time in La Fortuna, as we saw all the main sights in one day.
Time well spent.
John_K, Aug 2023
We experienced a great tour. Our guide was very informative and courteous. Our guide also told us that had a plan B also just in case.
Frances_Z, Jul 2023
Pedro was the best tour guide ever! He was very knowledgeable of all the sites and wildlife and he really made an effort to get to know everyone and point out things that were of interest to each person individually. Our driver Robin was also a great group lead. Totally recommend this tour.
Laura_W, Jul 2023
Awesome experience! Our guide was amazing and super knowledgeable. He allowed everyone to go their own pace but also made sure everyone got to see the flora and fauna and animals. He helped capture amazing photos and videos through his magnified lens. The lunch was delicious and set in a special setting. Highly recommend. Worth every penny!
Eventful Day
Cynthia_M, Jun 2023
Great experience! Our tour guide was super informative, and the activities were fun filled. Would do it again!
