Great day trip from San Jose
Daria_P, Feb 2024
A great trip, very informative, very well organized. Didn’t have to think about anything, just learn and enjoy. Highly recommend.

Informative Tour
Ranna_B, Feb 2024
Knowledgeable guide(Gary), lots to see and do. Crater was clouded in, but that's the risk, no controlling Mother Nature. Coffee tour was quite informative, and the animals at La Paz were abundant and interesting, although sad they were captive. Food was decent.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Dear Ranna: Thank you so much for taking the time to send your comments about the nature's changes as well as the quality of our tour guides. Regards,
Excellent guide
Milena_H, Feb 2024
The tour guide (Martin) made all the difference- he was knowledgeable, funny and made a great day out of it. The content of the tour itself is OK, however the coffee farm is very touristy, and at the Poas volcano there is only 30% chance to see something. The LaPaz gardens are stunning.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Dear Milena: Such an excellent comments about the quality of our tour guides as well as the pacing of our one day tour. Regards,

Dorothy_W, Feb 2024
Excellent tour that covers many things at once. Poa was active when I was there and so, it already worth the price. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and the pace of the tour was good.

Must do tour!
Jerry_P, Jan 2024
Every part of this trip was good. We really enjoyed the coffee tour where our guide Adrian did a wonderful job of educating us in the coffee growing and making process. Unfortunately we were not able to see the Poas Volcano crater due to heavy cloud cover but it was still an enjoyable experience. Last but not least, the La Paz Waterful Gardens tour was absolutely breath taking (be prepared to walk a bit though). Adrian was a great guide and our driver, Eduardo was also great!
Response from Host, Jan 2024

Andrew_S, Jan 2024
This trip was so much fun. The timing was perfect, the breakfast and lunch were great, and Max was a wonderful guide. Each part of this trip was efficiently done. My favorite part was certainly the volcano. It’s not a difficult walk up and the views were extraordinary.

Dear Werner: We always appreciate the comments about our top seller COMBO TOUR Coffee, Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens Hope to see you again soon,
Great tour but extremely overpriced
Leandro_I, Jan 2024
Good tour but frankly extremely overpriced. You need to be very lucky with the weather at the volcano as you have >50% chance of not seeing anything because of clouds. The coffee tour was nice but we didn't get to meet any of the "professional baristas" that were promised to us. The waterfall park is amazing and definitely the highlight of the trip.
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Dear Leandro: We are always concerned about the descriptions of our products, in this specific tour we do not promise the professional baristas during the visit to coffee farm. We suggest to double check from your side if you have sent your opinion to the correct provider of this tour or to check it out the description. Waiting for you to have a better experience in Costa Rica,
Great tour package
Peyam_B, Jan 2024
Great tour. Donald was very informative and communicated well. But take note, it's not an easy tour for those can't walk much except for the coffee estate part.

An epic and intimate experience with gorgeous Costa Rica! My favorite tour experience through Viator to date!
Jeremy_T, Dec 2023
This was the best tour I had ever experienced through Viator! David, our driver, and Alejandro, our tour guide, ensured we had an excellent experience! David was an outstanding and safe driver, providing a comfortable and enjoyable ride to all the locations/stops. Alejandro was a spectacular guide--knowledgeable, passionate, kind, respectful, fun, funny, and extremely patient with and supportive of the guests! The locations were epic! I loved the coffee farm tour and learning about coffee's significance to Costa Rican history. The volcano was outstanding--it was such a beautiful nature hike. My favorite location was the waterfalls... wow... just wow... such an exhilarating experience observing beautiful wildlife and viewing stunning waterfalls! I absolutely loved this tour and would do it all over again! Fantastic value! Do not hesitate to check this out!
