The most memorable part of this experience was the tour guide, Giovanni. He guided through an amazing day of adventure and made it so fun and educational. Poas was beautiful and the coffee farm was really interesting. He also took us to an authentic Costa Rican restaurant for lunch. Loved every minute!

Terrible. Avoid this company.
Andy_S, Feb 2024
You did not show up to collect me. I waited for 1 hour 15. No one answered the phone or my messages. No reason given for the no show. Yet you still ask for a review!
Don’t Trust!

Horrible! Wouldn’t allow me to give 0 stars. Tour company never showed up. They never contacted us to explain and neve responded to text. Entire day wasted as it was too late to book something else. Very frustrated!
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Hi James, sorry for this inconvenience, I think we have a misunderstood, we pass by your hotel and we never find you and then we can not have any communication with you
Do. NOT use this tour operator
Laurene_B, Jan 2024
I do NOT recommend this tour operator. Our guide canceled our full day tour and offered to take us day but then never replied to any of my (nine) messages to confirm the next day’s trip and did not show up. No one answered the local operator’s phone either. I had already canceled the second day’s tour with another company to go on this “rescheduled” tour and so lost all the money for the other next day’s tour that I canceled to go on this one. . I ended up having to hire a private guide to take the tour. The added expense, lost time, and inconvenience made this a huge disappointment.
Disappointed with tour guide assigned.
Sunil_W, Dec 2023
In my over 3 decades of using Viator, this was the worst experience given that despite our booking the tour in English, we had the tour guide provide the tour in Spanish. There were only two other individuals who were in the tour and they spoke Spanish so the tour seemed catered for them. We basically were on our own. Truly a very disappointing experience and not handled well by Viator support when we complained. Will be writing to TripAdvisor CEO about this experience when we return to the US.
Very interesting tour,...
Antnio_A, Sep 2023
Very interesting tour, with a helpful guide. Only regret is that we were unable to see the Poas volcano crater, despite more than half an hour waiting for the clouds to dissipate.
Great Day Tour from San Jose

Had an excellent tour of Dako coffee plantation followed by a stop at Starbuck farm. Volcano was impressive. We had a good lunch followed by a stop at La Paz waterfall. Our guide was excellent and I would highly recommend.
An Amazing Trip!
Emily_T, May 2023
It was a great trip. The trip was even better than expected and we saw so many beautiful places. We 100% recommend this to everyone.
Great view of the volcano crater and the waterfall
Jai_R, Mar 2023
The volcano and waterfall views were fantastic. We were lucky the mist lifted just in time for us to get a view of the crater The van seating was a bit cramped
Spectacular Day Tour
Alexandrea_M, May 2022
Giovanni is the best tour guide we could have asked for. His personality and positive attitude allowed my family to have a "fabulous" day tour. Our first stop was the volcano which if it wasn't for Giovanni's positive vibes we would have missed seeing the volcano because the fog literally moved in less than 10 minutes of us arriving, taking some great photo's, all I can say is WOW! The next stop was the waterfall, absolutely beautiful, then we went for a wonderful lunch which truly was delicious. Our final stop was Starbucks which had a great view and was so relaxing. Giovanni thanks for ensuring we had a memorable tour. Keep up the great work, we could not have asked for anything better.
Amazing tour guide!

Arturo was a fantastic guide! I highly recommend this tour! It was our first volcano tour and Arturo was very knowledgeable about the history. He was also considerate of our needs and experience.
The big let down
John_G, Feb 2020
I am sure the tour would have been terrific, if the tour operator had decided to pick us up. We waited at the hotel for an hour and a half. I thought going through victor would be more reliable
