    An Honest Account
    Brandon_S, Jan 2024
    Had a really enjoyable time with my family on this trip. We got to explore a lot of Costa Rica in a short amount of time. There were many beautiful places and experiences, especially the ziplining over Monteverde (price extra). However, there are a lot of things that can be improved upon. Firstly, there is a ton of driving from place to place which ends up taking the majority of the time so be ready of that. Secondly, the tour guide, Luis was very nice but he seemed more interested getting from place to place than to explain about the location or what to see. He also kept complaining how tired or hungry he was. He oversold a lot of the experiences and struggled remembering facts about the country and had a difficult time translating. The food was decent but despite the website listing dinner included for a meal, only breakfast and lunch was included, which was a disappointment to have to pay for dinner every day. The lodgings were adequate but not always the nicest places, so expect motel style stays. Lastly, we were joined by another group who was nice but also changed the plans and made us drive extra to accommodate which was a pain. Overall an enjoyable experience but can be improved upon and would probably recommend either a longer tour with more experienced guides or focusing on one specific area.

    Thank you also for your honest comment. I only differ a little from what was described in some things (user is worth reading) 1) Our guides are general, which indicates that they will give general information about the country, some birds, plants, flowers, trees, whatever you can find in the forest. Maybe you are right, a local guide could know more than a general one who tours the entire country, However, if you want a walk with a biologist, botanist or zoologist, that is possible and must be paid for and is not included in this package. 2) Our guides are not machines, we asked the guide without showing the comment and he told us a way to encourage lunch time, he says "I'm hungry too" if he gets tired or not he's a human being... if he told him directly You must have been talking about something... If you said it to the driver, it seems inappropriate and rude to me to listen to other people's conversations and what's even worse is to share it. 3) Motels: I remind you and every person who reads this can search for the hotels that are used Monteverde: Country Lodge Cypresses Arenal The meadow Hotel Arenal Paraiso Tortuguero: Laguna Lodge Hotel Suerre Jaco: Hotel Terrazas del Pacifico All between 3 and 4 stars... according to the Costa Rica Tourism Institute... they may look like the classic Super 8 Hotels in the United States, they are old and little remodeled, but in the end it is the most stupid thing we can look for. a rate of $55usd per person on average per night. Dear user, if you want to upgrade your category you can do so (99% when they know the price say no). Luxury hotels are available if you request them.
    Perfect Costa Rica package

    Glad we booked AyE for our 4 day trip though they didn’t have many reviews but they deserve a lot of high rated reviews. The quality and punctuality was top-notch. They picked us up at the airport on time. Our guide, Yojhan, spoke good English and Spanish. The van was clean and safe. They took us to all the places as promised. All we had to do was to follow their timings. Only problem was that they do not give a schedule or itineraries in advance so we were always not prepared. However, by the end of day they will give us a detailed pickup time. The hotel stays and the restaurants they took us to, was amazing. I would totally recommend them!! The roadways weren’t smooth always and glad they took us everywhere and we could rest. They stopped for toilet breaks, snack breaks, smoothie breaks, etc. One buffet wasn’t great but it was to cut-short the delay in our schedule. We didn’t get to see a lot of wildlife as advertised but we saw just one sloth and a few monkeys. Tortuguero was a little time-consuming and dehydrating but they let us rest during meals. Make sure you understand the places, schedule, get water bottles, etc.

    Disappointed
    Weilin_W, Jan 2024
    Tour was run by a third party local company. They changed the itinerary for Day 1 without letting us know till the tour started. We’re surprised on Day 4 they even couldn’t secure the entrance tickets to a national park because the park was overcrowded that day. We had to settle for some uninteresting activities

    Worst tour operator. Please avoid
    Girish_K, Dec 2023
    The tour is completely misleading. The operator has a zero communication prior to trip. Everything they posted like on location hotels is a big lie. They took me to San Jose every day, what a waste of time. The hotels provides are 2 stars at the best. Even motel 6 is much better. There is not a dinner included for any day all though the tour operator says one dinner included. The guide yojhan is the most arrogant, rude guide I have seen in my life. The guy can’t even speak basic English but has the attitude of a mammoth. His manager Stephan was another arrogant guy to deal with. I felt I wasted my four precious days and hated my trip with all the bet and switch attitude. In the middle of the tour, the operator threaten us to cancel and gave us the option to deviate in the middle of nowhere. Whatever description that is available on their tour page is complete deception and false narrative. I will not recommend this tour operator to anyone. Please look for other best operators to avoid disappointment in Costa Rica and other places.

    Racist insults Latino F%#K Mammoth Those Chinese (they were Korean) It hurts sir that you are from India and live in the United States (It does not represent your community to take this attitude. I think that your personal problems, you are a banker, are not enough to insult clients, treat all the guides badly. Yes, because of this attitude, no one He wanted to take it and was asked to leave the tour. Regarding the hotels, the Korean gentlemen paid for 5-star hotels directly. If it bothers you that they will be left in these places, it is a shame that it was his wife who apologized to Yojhan for insulting him and calling him a sh%# Latino. I imagine that was teaching his son to humiliate people.
    Overall, I'd give this...
    Anahita_D, Dec 2023
    Overall, I'd give this trip a 2 star. This is mainly because the Viator website has some inaccuracies in the description and you will not go to some things that are advertised (do not depend on the schedule on here because it is inaccurate). The problem is, the driver does not give you a full agenda either. You always have to ask specifically what time are we getting picked up, what's happening after etc. This is poor communication in my opinion. There is ALOT of driving, which is not the tour's fault obviously. Our driver was not particularly safe either - talking and texting while driving. He was not overly friendly either. Overall, I would recommend a tour bus or other more highly rated tours on Viator (even if shorter, you can do 2 other tours on there if you're going for a longer trip) and not this tour company.

    Best tour in 4 days
    Hong_L, Feb 2023
    We had a wonderful time at each stop and truly enjoyed the sceneries, rides and food. Since we need to be constantly on road, it is well organized to have breaks built in the schedule. Highly recommended!

    Hello Thanks for your comments. Pura vida.
    Great 4 day tour for families.
    Behnam_J, Apr 2022
    We spent 4 days with Yojhan (tour guide) and Omar (Driver). Very pleasant personalities and they truly went above and beyond to made our family comfortable. Highly recommended tour, Especially the Tortuguero and Arenal legs of the trip. Choice of restaurants were great. One thing that they could improve is the choice of Hotel on last night before Manuel Antonio park visit. Highly recommended Tour.

    Hello thanks for your comments. Pura vida.
    The best decision we made!
    Amy_C, Mar 2022
    Wow. What a trip! We only had a week in Costa Rica and wanted to cram in as much as could. This tour did that for us effortlessly. We saw so much and we had the best tour guide (Yojhan) & driver (omari). They were so lovely, enthusiastic, a good laugh & they made us feel so safe and welcomed. We had an issue with the van one day & they calmly & efficiently got a replacement van within 2 hours, offered us food/drink from the local restaurant. Always putting our safety first. All the accommodation was lovely, especially having the view of Arenal volcano from our room. The food was always great portion sizes and good quality, we never went hungry! But there is alot of driving. We are used to this as we have been backpacking several years ago so didn't bother us and we wanted to cover alot of ground in a short amount of time. So don't recommend if you're wanting alot of relaxation. But we loved every minute and yojhan & omari were just the best we could ever ask for! A trip we will never forget!

    MELHORES DIAS NA COSTA RICA
    Milena, Oct 2021
    Acabamos comprando um outro tour com a agência, então ficamos juntos por 5 dias! E foram os melhores dias na Costa Rica. Yojhan e Huan José foram nossos guias e motorista. E como foram divertidos, engraçados, de muito conhecimento sobre o país e as regiões visitadas. Solícitos, sempre buscaram fazer todo o possível para atender ao que solicitamos. Organizados, nos levaram para comer nos melhores restaurantes e dormimos em ótimos hotéis. Não há nada, nada para reclamar. Somente agradecer e dizer que, se houvesse 20 estrelas, eu daria a agência e aos dois. A Costa Rica pode até ser um país pequeno, mas as pessoas tem um coração enorme! Muito, mas muito obrigada por todo! E principalmente, por terem feito meus dias tão felizes e divertidos.
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
