This day trip was the highlight of my time in Costa Rica! From start to finish is was great! Our guide was Juan (who was kind, funny, and accommodating) picked us up at around 6:15, and we took the scenic route to La Fortuna with a few interesting stops along the way. Juan even stopped a couple of times to show us sloths that he happened to spot in trees along the way. It was amazing how he could spot them so easily from the road! The stop to view the iguanas was also pretty awesome! There were so many of them of all different sizes and colors! Once in La Fortuna, we enjoyed a delicious lunch (there were several chicken, beef, pork, fish, or vegetarion options to choose from) I had a cheesburger with fries and my daughter had a chicken quesadilla. After lunch we went zip lining and boy was that an experience! Every single person on the ziplining crew was friendly, reassruing, and so enthusiastic. You could tell that they love what they do and are happy to be there! They were also so great with kids! My 5 year old was so eager that she left me behind and had a great time with her tandem guide! I gave my phone to him and he got some great shots of her ziping. I also paid the photographer $10 to get professional photos of her ziplining as well and surprisingly, the link he sent included photos of the entire group, including me so that was a pleasant surprise. There were 8 lines in total and all had great views of the jungle and were very exciting! About halfway through it began to rain pretty hard though so at the end we were soaking wet, but still had a great time. Following the ziplining we enjoyed the hot springs which were a great way to unwind after the excitement of ziplining. The temperatures in the pools ranged from cold, to lukewarm, to warm, to hot. The property was also just incredibly beautiful and we saw some geckos and lizards which got my daughter really excited. On the way home we enjoyed another delicious meal, also with many options to suit every taste. We arrived back at our hotel at around 10pm. If you aren't sure whether to book this trip, DO IT! You will be pleased!

Long day but worth it since it packs so much into the tour. Two of us opted for zip lining and two without but upon purchasing I was able to request we still be in the same car. Food was great, experience was great, and Juan was fantastic. Thank you!

This was an amazing experience!! When said 14 hours they meant it!!! Lol Our driver Arturo and guide Jeffery were awesome and sooo funny and even entertained our crazy picture obsession with every stop we made. It was a little cloudy to see the volcano but the hotsprings was made up for it and our group enjoyed every moment to the excursion

This tour was so much fun. We did a lot in one day. Started off by visiting a pretty coffee plantation where we were able to buy coffee/pastries. Saw the volcano from a distance. Saw beautiful waterfall. Got to relax in the hot springs. My favorite part was the ziplining, it was raining but still so awesome. Food was really good, especially the lunch. The dinner restaurant food wasn’t that great. Our tour guide Juan was super nice and made sure we got a lot out of this tour.

Great trip, getting a taste of a variatie of things to do in Costa Rica. Tour guide, Kenneth, was great, took his time to explain, went out of his way to show us new experiences. Highly recommend this tour. Also food was delicious, all in all great value for the price. Again, tour guide Ken made the trip.

We spent most the the day riding. We did not hike at all as the website suggested. The hot springs was a pool (3 pools) not natural hot springs. The tour guide Fernando was very informative & nice.

Best Day Ever

I highly suggest this tour! Fernando is absolutely incredible. He was very knowledgeable and informative. The day will be jammed pack with adventure!! I brought my travel neck pillow and took a few naps in the van for sure. I was nervous about such a lengthy tour. However, we would have never seen all of the sights independently. Additionally lunch and dinner were amazing! The only con for me was the ride was a little bumpy at first and I had to take something for motion sickness. However, I would totally do this tour again! 10/10! Highly recommend!!

Could not recommend this tour enough. From the communication beforehand about pickup through the end of the day, our tour guide Fernando was amazing. We spent a lot of time driving in the bus, but Fernando educated us on the basic history of Costa Rica along the way, in a way that was engaging and interesting. Every single stop along the way was very worthwhile and a great way to see different characteristics of the country. The food stops were well planned out and delicious, and we even got to see a waterfall and sloth! Fernando made sure my friend and I were safely dropped back off and were able to grab a taxi to get to where we wanted to go. 10/10 day!

We had an amazing tour with Francisco and Luis. They were fun, thoughtful, and informative. We definitely got more than our moneys worth! This was a fun and a knowledgeable day... we saw so much on this tour and would definitely recommend. (We saw/experienced sloths, waterfalls, local culture/cuisine, volcano, hot springs, and more…)

Our tour guides were Kenneth and Luis, who were so sweet and hilarious. Kenneth was very engaging with us and ensured we got the full experience. They were very knowledgeable with any questions we had about the tour and made the overall experience a day to remember. We stopped by many places to see the view as well as sample fruits, wines, and coffee. We saw iguanas and tried to see sloths; however, they were hiding from us the day we went. But we did see howler monkeys which was a surprise after ziplining. Due to COVID, they aren't getting paid a salary just yet, so make sure to tip them well as they work super hard, and it is their only source of income!
