Dan_W, Dec 2023
Great experience... beautiful and informative. Breakfast and lunch served, delicious. Coffee plantation was interesting, volcano was a short, fun hike but weather was bad and didn't get too see the crater, waterfalls/animals was amazing - not too crowded.

Nice places but time management and schedule improvable
Andrea_I, Aug 2023
The guide was kind and shared interesting stories, the driver was also responsible and did a good job. Our main concern was the structure of the tour: the main highlight was supposed to be Poas Volcano, but this is the place where we spent the least amount of time. Moreover, we went there in the late morning, where the weather notoriously turns worse, and as a result we could not see anything. Instead, we spent the first (very sunny) hours of the tour in the Doka hacienda. I suggest adapting the schedule of the tour to the weather conditions when appropriate, as Poas is the main attraction tourists are there for. Instead, less time could be spent in "commercial" venues.

A great day!

Doka Coffee Farm was beautiful and relaxing. Walking to Poas Volcano felt great. The air was cool and fresh. We were lucky to have a clear view of the Volcano. La Paz Waterfall Gardens was touristy but beautiful too. The trek to the waterfalls was fun and a little challenging. The waterfall was just awesome. The animals are being cared for very professionally. Our tour guide was incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and passionate about creating a wonderful experience for our group. I highly recommend this tour for some nature close to San Jose.

Ashi_S, Jan 2023
Erik was an excellent tour guide. It was a fun-filled and jam packed experience. Even when the weather was quite foggy, We were able to see the Poas Volcano and enjoyed every bit of the hike. The coffee tour was great too. We learnt a lot about different types of coffees and what was the coffee picking process. The breakfast and lunch was fantastic so was the tour of the La Paz gardens and the waterfall.

Tammy_M, Jun 2022
Our tour guide Carlile (not sure about spelling) was awesome! He went above and beyond to make our tour the best. He helped in making sure our picky eater had something to eat. He brought us to Hacienda Alsacia (Starbucks) to see the beautiful views. Took pictures of our group for us so everyone could be in photograph. He was great at explaining our tours. Worked with us on when to eat lunch. Made stops for the smokers. He was as entertaining on the ride as he was for the tour.AWESOME!!!

Excelente tour. Muy bien guiado por Pedro. Sorprendente el lugar de almuerzo y la Cascada de la paz. Por suerte pudimos ver la laguna del volcán antes de que lo cubra la nube. El tour duró 11 hs.
