Our guide German was great! On the ride, he was very animated and pointed out lots of waterfalls, plants, flowers, and the yellow river. He explained everything and let everyone know when a good picture opportunity was coming! He even would offer to take photos for you/of the family. He spotted a sloth and we pulled over and all got a chance to take pictures. We also stopped to see monkeys! Contrary to the description, we didn't visit a banana plantation as an organized activity but rather we stopped at one of Dole's banana fields and got to observe the process of cutting the bananas down and loading them on a conveyor belt. On the river cruise to Tortuguero village, we saw lots of animals including Cayman crocodiles, normal crocodiles, and lots of birds! German bought us all pipa fria or coconuts to drink out of upon arrival to the village. We had a short walk around the village to the beach and then we went to a hotel for a lunch buffet. Afterwards, we took the boat back and saw more animals. On the drive back, we stopped at a local family's house and had the opportunity to see another sloth in their yard and we could buy homemade tamales. A long day but we got to see a lot!

Awesome tour and knowledgeable tour guide. Walk thru small village and saw the beach where the turtles migrate. Last 10 miles of the tour was bumpy on the dirt road and other than that it was great.

The tour did not happen. I waited in my hotel lobby for two hours from 5am and no one turned up. Eventually the hotel staff managed to contact the travel company and they said the tour was not running on the day I was booked in for. I do not know why I was booked in to a non-existent tour.

Tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided lots of info about Costa Rica. He stopped the vehicle at several places on the way to show us animals and different trees and plants. Very very good. He entertained us by singing too while we were in the vehicle.

This was an excellent tour!! Even getting up at 5 AM was worth it for everything that we saw and experienced. Our tour guide and bus driver were fabulous. The tour guide didn't just want us to see Costa Rica, he wanted us to experience Pura Vida. He got us exotic fruits from fruit stands to try, sang Ave Maria to us in a little church with the voice of an professional singer and we got to see baby turtles make their way from the sands of their nest to the waters of the Atlantic. Absolutely AMAZING! Each meal was deliciously prepared, even though lunch was more Americanized than I expected. So very pleased with this tour!
