    I cannot recollect our drivers name, but he was so personable and kind on our private transfer! He provided cold waters upon pickup from the airport. He would give us information about the sights and areas we were passing through. We stopped for lunch and a couple of bathroom breaks en route. Thanks so much!

    Good transfer - worth doing

    Very good, friendly transfer. Was a bit hard to find the driver initially but we got it sorted. Arrived safely and on time with a nice stop half way for a restroom etc (and a lovely view!)
    Highly recommend!

    Our driver was kind, very professional and shared knowledge about the local community (as well as gave us restaurant recommendations, which didn't disappoint!). He was a great driver and navigated through the roads well. We stopped at a restaurant and minimart half way to La Fortuna for a bathroom break and food.
    great shuttle service

    Our son joined us late on our Costa Rica trip. We let him be picked up at the airport and he was "delivered" right at our place in La Fortuna. The driver was great fun, lots of informations about Costa Rica, safe driving......

    The best transport
    Lisa_Z, May 2023
    This was super easy! Jordan was there waiting for us and the owner Carlos was always in touch and ready to answer questions. Jordan took us to a wonderful place for lunch on our way to La Fortuna. Carlos was able to help us with transportation to Rio Celeste the next day because we booked a tour but didn’t realize it didn’t include transportation. Adrian picked us up and we spent the whole day together. He convinced us to go to the National Park of Tenorio Volcano since it was nearby. He guided us through the park and we had a wonderful time. We ended by having dinner together! We felt like we made some nice Tico friends through this transaction!!!

    20/10 would recommend.
    Sarina_O, Apr 2023
    Adrien was an excellent tour guide, has excellent communication, is patient, and very helpful. It felt like it was less of a transfer and more of an informational tour. No better way to start the vacation.

    The driver(unfortunately I can't remember his name) was kind, professional and shared knowledge about the local community. He did a great job driving the windy roads. We stopped at a nice little restaurant half way to la fortuna for a bathroom break and food.

    We had Adrian as our driver, he was fantastic! And communication with Carlos at the company was amazing!
    Very comfortable and safe
    Wendi_L, Jun 2022
    Perfect. They were there with a sign when we arrived. Our driver, Adrian, stopped for lunch with us. I believe I already wrote a review on trip advisor. However, I am also writing this one that came via email because I want them to know he did a great job. He was very kind, personable and safe. Highly recommend.
    Excellent transfer & tour, felt like family!
