The views were breathtaking we stopped at a little shop before heading to the volcano Climbing the steep hills through the mountains were an amazing sight to see.I enjoyed every minute just being up above the clouds seeing the villages and live stock.there's also a gift shop near the volcano stop, you'll need a light jacket.we also got off the bus to visit mercado market

Charlotte_D, Feb 2024
Unfortunately it was a cloudy day. So we couldn’t see much. But no one can’t do anything about that! The tourguide did a good job and already in the car to the vulcano he told a lot about the surroundings and later also at the vulcano and at the Cartago Church. But I do think that the tour is a bit expence. Because i was picked up at 7:30 and back at the hostel at 13:00.

Okay views are what makes it
Judy_G, Jan 2024
Honestly this tour was really nice in the beginning I have to say that you know going up the volcano and the small hike was actually nice. I guess my only issue that I had was that I felt like our guide was trying to put us in places where he was making a commission out of us so that in itself is what kind of bothered me a bit but I guess it's part of what some tour guides do but otherwise you know what I would recommend this trip just you know be aware that you're going to probably be stopped at some places to go buy things and told hey buy this buy that it's nothing you don't mind the suggestion it just felt like it was kind of forced sometimes and even some of the prices of where we went were ridiculously high. For example we went to a restaurant to get some coffee and some hot chocolate two hot chocolates and a piece of cornmeal with some cheese on it and it'll cost me over $22 which I thought was a lot considering at the hot chocolate wasn't something that was gourmet you could you can tell that it was like either powdered or something but anyway otherwise the view are makes it the only thing that makes it worth it I would improve on this part you know not just taking your people to places where they can spend money and trying to talk them into buying stuff that and honestly was like price maybe four times the price where it shouldn't be just saying.

Petra_W, Jan 2024
The trip itself was nice and our guide was great but the price for such a trip was really overrated and I wouldnt go for that for such a lot of money next time. Also the volcan was without water as it was not raining before which of course nobody can influence. Just that it was not as on the picture attached to the trip offer.

Absolutely wonderful!
Shavon_E, Jul 2023
Fantastic experience! Christopher was a great driver. Daniel was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. They provided a welcoming & thorough experience filled with history of San José & the volcanoes themselves. They even took photos! And the experience of walking around near a volcano can’t be beat!

Mark_S, Apr 2023
This is a great way to see the volcano and see the surrounding area. It’s just enough time to stroll through the crater.

Great tour
jkruse2019, Sep 2019
This was a great tour, the tourguide Donald was great and explained all that would happen throughout the trip and gave great information. We had great weather and it was really interesting to see the greenish lake inside the volcano. Nice tour for half a day. Worth it!

Christina M, Apr 2018
The tour was nice, and our guide was very knowledgeable of the area. The views up to the volcano were breath taking and it was really neat to see the volcano. We even saw some fun wildlife while there. My only complaint was we had to switch vans during the tour and the driver we had that took us back to our hotels was not a very safe driver. Additionally, he forget to take one of the passengers to his hotel and then claimed he had already stopped there which he didn't. Then he dropped that passenger off at a corner and told him to walk the 4 blocks back to his hotel from there. I'm glad it wasn't me but I felt really bad for the guy. The driver was on his phone constantly and he drove very fast. I would have thought maybe this is just the Coast Rican way, but I did 2 other tours and this was not the case with the other drivers. We did enjoy the trip to the volcano but the driver kinda soured our experience at the end.
Great view of the volcano! Well...
Katherine T, Dec 2017
Great view of the volcano! Well worth the drive. Our pickup came 15 minutes early because traffic was light that morning. It was extremely windy and cold at the top of volcano, but since dry season had started we could see the lagoon.

Ruth A, Jan 2017
This was a great experience to see the Irazu Volcano. The tour guides made it an enjoyable experience giving us a guided tour of San Jose on the way up to Volcano, in addition we had a wonderful very filling lunch at a coffee plantation. The botanical gardens and historical churches were also fantastic. This was a great tour! Thank you!!
Un environnement magnifique pour ce volcan.
Christophe_M, Mar 2024
Une expérience très enrichissante, cela vaut le coup de voir ce volcan avec des caractéristiques différentes par rapport aux autres volcans avec notamment une plage de cendres volcanique. Pour la deuxième partie de la visite de producteur de café Alsacia je regrette de ne pas avoir eu l'explication sur la production du café, tu es plutôt une pause pour prendre un café...

Déception
berglab, Jan 2020
La nature décide tout….c'est la 2e fois que je tente d'aller "VOIR" ce volcan et ce fut encore une déception...blanc partout. Nous étions dans le nuage, impossible de voir à plus de 10 mètres devant. Et c'est très souvent comme ça selon le guide qui nous accompagnait. Même tôt le matin, les chances sont mince de voir autre chose que la clôture! Nous avons attendu que le nuage parte, en vain. Et le froid et l'eau qui s'est infiltré partout :( Je ne tenterai pas une 3e fois, c'est certain.
