Tour: #525896, Volcano hike plus the chocolate tour experience, La Fortuna, Alajuela, Costa Rica    view tour
Date: Feb 10/20

Jose is a very knowledgeable guide and he truly enjoys giving tours, which makes the tour more enjoyable. He loves his country and can tell you a lot about the areas where you will visit and the flora and fauna you may see. If I make it back this way, I will definitely take another trip with Jose; not only for the tour, but because we parted as friends. I cannot say enough about how great the trip was with Jose. I will recommend only him to friends and family coming to Costa Rica. He is great! Pura Vida!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I want to Thank you Nathan and your wife for such a nice comment. Share with you guys was super nice experience the time pass flying with people as nice as you and I would love to have your friends or family in Costa Rica to show them the beauties of my country.

Date: Jan 27/20

My guide, Jose, and his son, Steve, who he brought along to assist, as I have a scooter, were outstanding. They were both very attentive to my needs and responsive to what I said I wanted to experience on the trip. It was obvious that they really cared. When we went to restaurants, Jose, chose places that gave me the flavor of Costa Rican food and atmosphere, and the food was good! I would definitely recommend Jose for future trips.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I want to thank Kelley Pearson and Alyce Ross for trusting me. I feel very satisfied that although it was my first experience of have a person with scooter, I could achieve your expectations. Today I can say that if you like what you do, you will never have to work.

Tour: #525600, Ecological Reserve Danaus and Waterfall, La Fortuna, Alajuela, Costa Rica    view tour
Date: Jan 7/20

Jose suggests an early start, collecting us from our hotel at 7:00 am and when you arrive at the nature reserve you understand why. The reserve is so peaceful and abundant in wildlife along with Jose's extensive knowledge of wildlife and vegetation, it truly is a nature lovers paradise. This experience was followed by a visit to the stunning La Fortuna waterfall which was quite breathtaking. Jose then took us for a typical Costa Rican lunch which was absolutely delicious. Another excellent tour with Jose.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I feel extremely satisfied to have been your tour guide in your trip to Costa Rica and once again I want to thank you both for giving me the opportunity to share with you the beauties of my country.

Tour: #526172, Caño Negro Wildlife, La Fortuna, Alajuela, Costa Rica    view tour
Date: Jan 5/20

Excellent wildlife tour on the water enhanced by Jose's amazing knowledge. We saw howler and white faced monkeys, reptiles and so many different birds, we lost count. Jose collected us from our hotel and was able to spot a sloth within 5 minutes on a roadside tree. The hour and half journey to Cano Negro was as interesting as the tour as Jose was so informative about absolutely everything. An excellent guide, would definitely recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan And Nigel Thank you very much for your nice comment, it was very satisfying for me to share with you both I had an excellent day thanks to your company.

Tour: Living wonders of Costa Rica in the countryside, San José, San José, Costa Rica
Date: Dec 6/19

Jose is an exceptional tour guide and nature enthusiast. With him I got an incredible 2-day introduction to Costa Rica!. His knowledge goes beyond just animals, as he gives you insight on the different plants around you, the ecosystem and more. He is very professional in bird watching, and under his guidance I was able to catch a view of several birds. As a lone female traveller I felt very safe and comfortable throughout my journey. Thank you Jose!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for so nice comment it was a great pleasure to me have shared with you. You are super nice person Regards Jose

Tour: #525896, Volcano hike plus the chocolate tour experience, La Fortuna, Alajuela, Costa Rica    view tour
Date: Jul 20/19

My family and I did the Arenal Volcano tour with the chocolate experience and it was definitely worth it! Jose was very friendly and knowledgeable about the volcanos and answered all of our questions about Costa Rica. We even saw a sloth that we wouldn't have seen if we just went for a hike on our own. The kids really loved the chocolate tour. This was done by the staff at Rainforest Chocolate tour, even they were great! We highly recommend Jose as a tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Heaven Guerrero Wilbanks. Thank you very much for your comment I also lived a wonderful day with you people I want let you know that I would love to have you all again in Costa Rica My house is your house Best regards Jose

I really don't know where to begin, the minute we met Jose we knew that he simply loves his job. He was just such a good guide. I called various tours but no one was offering tours to both Arenal lake and the volcano, Jose covered both. He was able to spot wild life on the way and knew the area well. We say sloth and ant eater and birds was just amazing. He was in boooo rush in fact we were short of time since we had another activity but Jose made sure he covered everything and did not skip anything. Gr8

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Sheetal Gala Thank you very much for such a nice comment. This is the reason wai I love my job. It is so beautiful to had experiences with people of such hi quality as you that make me live super motivated with wath I do. Greatings to you all.

Date: Mar 26/19

Jose was fantastic. He had lots of information about Costa Rica. We started at Mistico hanging bridges and he knew all the spots to find things. Educating us and snapping great pictures along the way. Snakes, bats, hummingbirds, fauna...... After lunch we went to La Fortuna falls an then on to Arenal volcano as we watched the sun set after climbing for about an hour. We finished with dinner together. All 3 of us felt so fortunate to have him as our guide and you will too. book him if you can!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Dwayne Bargowski to you and your friends. This was an excellent experience, time flies with people super nice as you people. Greetings to you all over there. Jose
