        Our tour guide Pablo was so funny and knowledgeable! We would this tour again. It’s nice to see different places in Costa Rica , you get to experience seeing monkeys, crocodiles, and birds and we got to eat lunch too. I would highly recommend this tour.

        Great tour and guide
        Juan Pablo was an excellent tour guide. At the coffee plantation we learned all about CR coffee and found out we're brewing it all wrong! Lunch buffet was fabulous. Highly recommended. You must be able to walk uphill at elevation.

        Great nature connection and enjoyable day
        This was a delightful day. They were very easy to find at the pier. We found Juan the guide to be friendly and informative, and fun! Charlie was friendly and helpful and a great driver. We loved the Monteverde Cloud Forest tour, found it to be very worthwhile. Beautiful, a great nature connection, and a great way to spend the time. For the coffee tour we experienced sugar coming out of sugarcane, and cocoa beans made into chocolate. And saw coffee beans and roasting and had coffee and hot chocolate samples. Everybody in my group agreed this was a great day. We recommend it and Gio Tours.

        A Must Day Tour
        Juan, our tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable and funny. He kept his narratives very informative. Randall, our driver expertly maneuvered the van on those narrow and winding road. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this tour when visiting Costa Rica.

        Puerto Limon Costa Rica: canal tour with Juan in Alejandro
        first hour tour guides Juan and Alejandro were two of the best tour guides I’ve had on the many excursions. I’ve been on in my many travels in my lifetime! One has such a positive and sparkling personality, and knowledge about his country, the environment and the people of Costa Rica and the specific region of Puerto Limon, I not only enjoyed the canal trip, the visit to the banana plantation, seeing the wildlife, but also learning about the Costa Rican‘s way of life! Juan and Alejandro made this trip. An amazing experience, making me want to come back to Costa Rica to visit more of the country and to live Pura Vida!

        Monteverde was cool and fun.
        This was a nice rain forest walk, with a very good guide for the butterfly building. Johnny was a very good driver and Juan is friendly and informative. We did the butterfly instead of the coffee, which was probably better as l am from coffee country (HI).

        Best tour to see sloughs, money and perhaps even a croc
        Fantastic tour. Canal trip was the highlight. Tour guide, Pablo knew his stuff and had a great blend of humor and information. Honestly, this is one of the best tours I've been on in eight different cruises. Highly recommend this tour.

      We took a bus/boat tour with Pablo and Gabriel (our driver). Oh my gosh! Pablo is AMAZING. He is very knowledgeable about not only Costa Rican history and nature but also about South America, North America, Panama… we learned so much. He’s got a great sense of humor, took us to lots of spots to grab snacks (and souvenirs) and gave a great tour of Limón city. We all had an amazing time and I would hight recommend this tour. Well worth the price.

      Our party of seven arrived in Limon on a Princess cruise ship. Jesus (our tour guide) met us exactly where his directions guided us. We traveled in an AC van. We drove through the city (small, industrial area) before heading to the Tortuguero canal where we coasted on a covered boat sightseeing for animals,etc. in their natural habitat. Jesus made sure we saw what he sighted and gave additional information about the country and wildlife he is passionate about. He gave us a bottle of water and treated us to fruit after the boat ride. That fruit has ruined my everyday taste of fruit forever. It was delicious! Then he took us to a national park where we did more walking and sighting of snakes and monkeys and walked back to the van along the beautiful beach. Jesus also took us to another part of the rain forest to see dart frogs and other very small frogs and spiders. We also made a stop at a small store for a banana, restrooms and coffee. Then we drove through a banana plantation for more interesting information and facts. I highly recommend this tour. It was so personal. Jesus ended by giving each of us a small bag of coffee. I had absolutely no worries about this private tour and getting back to the ship on time.

      I went on the Puerto Limon, Costa Rica Tortuguero And plantation exploration excursion with one and Alejandro. Juan and Alejandro made the tour so fun and so friendly and had so much information to share! I absolutely fell in love with Costa Rica! Purva Vida! We saw and heard howler monkeys, Two toed sloth, Cayman, beautiful birds, beautiful flowers. Then we went to a banana plantation, and we’re showing the process of how bananas are grown and processed. Along the way we were able to sample the fresh fruits of Costa Rica. Juan and Alejandro always made sure we were comfortable, guiding us into the shade, or into the air condition spots. The people of Costa Rica are absolutely amazing! The philosophy by which they live is so beautiful! Juan and Alejandro made our trip even more beautiful, by having so much knowledge of the country and its people. I would definitely recommend this excursion and I would absolutely recommend visiting Costa Rica and Puerto Limon!

      Our tour guide made the day special. Pablo C was our guide and his depth of knowledge on everything we saw was just wonderful. The animal life on the river portion of the trip was special with Pablo spotting sloths we would never have seen on our own and then getting us close enough to great head shots of the cute little guys. Plenty of birds and monkeys too. It is a tough choice whether the river cruise or the zip lining was the highlight of the outing. The zip lining was done very professionally and with ten or eleven separate lines was plenty long enough and a real kick. A special thanks to Pablo who made the day a real joy

      Great tour of the Puerto Limon area of Costa Rica. Tour meeting place was very easy to find coming off the ship. Larry was an excellent tour guide and provided much interesting information about Costa Rica. Visit to the banana plantation was very good and on the boat tour we got to see a close up of a sloth moving by the water, a very rare event as usually you just see them sleeping in a tree. Only caution I would give is don't buy any coffee at the tourist shops on the tour. Coffee at the port shops was much cheaper.
