A Recent Review of this tour

Amazing! She was so knowledgeable, great driver, kind and very generous. She custom built the tour to exactly what we wanted. Saw tons of wildlife and rainforest. Provided Costa Rican treats. Searched until she found a 'water apple', a fruit we'd never seen or tasted before. Really had a great day. Hope to use her again someday.
