The coffee and village tour was well run and informative, Gary and Carlos both looked after us very well during the drive between the towns and getting in and out of the bus. It was very interesting to see the different attractions and we felt we had enough time to see and enjoy everything. The lunch was lovely and the family all enjoyed it (including the children aged 14, 12 and 10)

Driver Tony was fantastic. Great guide. Enjoyed the town of Grecian and learning about it. The oxcart factory was informative as was Doka.

Guide Antonio demonstrated extensive knowledge of the subject, was very courteous, and possessed a deep understanding of the history of the towns and the most beautiful routes. 100% recommendable.

The experience so much more than I expected.

Artruro our drive was fantastic. It was a private tour and everything we saw was interesting and he was very informative. I learned so much. The town of Sarji and Doku coffee plantation were wonderful.

Highly recommend this tour with Arturo!
Leyi_D, Aug 2023
Arturo was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were the only two for the tour yesterday so we had a VIP tour where he shared a lot of useful information with us. The town tours and coffee tour were great. We didn’t feel like pushed at all like one of the reviews we saw here. We were instead left enough time we needed and wanted in the towns and at the coffee tour and the lunch. The pace was up to us. Arturo said there aren’t as many tours now as compared to pre-pandemic since the pandemic hit the tourism really hard in Costa Rica and he had no business at all which he did nothing and made no money at all during that time. Now he hopes to get more people to sign up for tours so we are writing this good review hoping to help him financially. He’s a very good guide and speaks very good English. Highly recommend this tour with Arturo!

Lower your expectation. Rip off.
Karen_D, Apr 2023
I cannot believe how much was charged for what we got. First, I will say our tour guide Ronny was absolutely fine. We get the feeling he was not the usual guide.. one piece he may play a part on was the Coffee tour as we feel he may have had control of that. To start… we would recommend that you read the description and take it for exactly as it is. You will mostly be in a car and will not have a chance to see any of these towns mentioned but for a tiny bit. On our day, Grecia was having a cultural festival so we could not visit nor could we see the church very well. Pictures were blocked by tons of people. Sarchi, we went to the ox art museum, which was interesting and the tour guide was knowledgeable. But it really was mostly a solicitation to buy souvenirs and give tips to artists sitting out painting. Doka was the biggest disappointment. If you read the Doka tour website, you get to see a lot more than what we were given. Lunch was good. Our guide Ronny was also our Doka guide. Almost like they said. Sure, have lunch and you can walk them around. But not on one of our regular tours. Therefore cutting the cost for the supplier. We were not taken to the plantation but only to a run down processing area. We were not given any coffee to taste and again, we’re just pushed to buy coffee. Which we did because we love coffee. I complained to Viator and they said what was in the description was what was delivered. This tour was a scam. Save your money in Costa Rica and be sure to read it for face value. We cancelled future bookings and will not use this company ever again if we can help it.

Coffee Coffee Coffee and more
Paul_L, Jan 2022
Had no idea as to how complex it is to pick coffee and convert from the "cherry" to the finished coffee we see in the stores. Andrea, the guide at Doka Coffee, was tremendous! Very much "jn the know" and very people oriented. Our Driver, Eduardo, navigated the traffic and back roads perfectly. A great way to spend 1/2 a day in the San Jose area

Paseo por Hacienda Doka, Grecia y Sarchi
Doris_P, Mar 2022
La visita a la hacienda cafetalera estuvo excelente, nos gustó mucho. Creíamos q el ir a la ciudad de Grecia veríamos aparte de la catedral metálica otras cosas. En cuanto a Sarchi fue bonito ver como hacen las carretas y demás artesanías.
