RAINFOREST EXPLORERS

Making very easy to visit the most amazing attractions at the Arenal Volcano area in Costa Rica.
TIFFINI MASON Hanzle and Edgar were both wonderful! Today was our second day to have tours booked with Hanzle, and we did the Safari Float & Chocolate Tour. Hanzle pointed out lots of wildlife for us to see on the river & always took the time to make sure we were able to get a lot of great pictures before moving on. The Chocolate Tour was even better than I expected it to be! It was great meeting the family that owned the farm- they were so friendly and they had us try the different fruit grown on their farm, taught our sons how to extract the liquid from the sugar cane, and then we all tried it- it was delicious! During the Chocolate part of the tour, they taught us all about the history of chocolate, opened up a cacao pod for us to try, and walked us through the area where they grow all of their cacao trees. They then showed us how they make chocolate and had us try cocoa nibs and hot chocolate. It was a great experience! Reviewed on: 2017-07-17

marchelle dickey We did the 3 in 1 tour on June 19th which included Hanging Bridges, La Fortuna Waterfall, and Arenal Volcano hike. I was with my husband and by parents. I was concerned that my p70 year old parents might have a hard time hiking around, but the activity level of all the activities was very reasonable. William was our tour guide, and he was fantastic!!! My husband and him hit it off and he gave us an incredible VIP experience. His local knowledge, sense of humor, caring and likeable personality, all made our action packed day an unforgettable experience. We would definitely use you company again for future tours, and will rave and recommend your services. Thanks again to William who really made it a special experience for us all. He truly seemed to care about us, respect for the natural environment, and took pride in his job. What a professional and wonderful human being!!! PURA VIDA y Muchas Gracias!!!

chelsea We were lucky enough to have William & Edgar take us to La Fortuna Waterfall and on a volcano hike. Both William the guide and Edgar the driver were extremely personable and went out of their way to make us happy! We saw many aspects of wildlife that we would have not been able to see on our own. One of our favorite days in Costa Rica! Reviewed on: 2017-07-06
John Yan We really enjoyed the personal attention received from our superior tour guide, Antenor (or Antonio, hope we spelled his name correctly). He is knowledgeable about the history of Costa Rica, its geography, and the wildlife habitats. We learned a lot throughout our 3 in 1 tour (hanging bridges, waterfall, and the volcano hike). We were amazed with the natural beatuties Costa Rica has to offer, and the local people are very friendly and accommodating. We will certainly return to this beautiful country. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!! Reviewed on: 2017-06-27
Silvia Leon Carlos was a knowledgeable and patient guide. He knew where to look for animals, about the history of the places, and about the trees. And he took invaluable photos for us. The transportation was smooth and clean. Overall it was a great experience. Reviewed on: 2017-06-25

Joshua Noggle Waxenbaum Had an amazing day! Each event was the perfect length and difficulty - nothing was too long that it became boring and neither was it too short. We were taken care of every step of the way so we were free to enjoy the enjoy experience. Carlos, the tour guide went above and beyond and was knowledgeable on everything we saw. He was a master of spying out wildlife and coaxing animals to come out of hiding. He was a blast to talk to and made the whole awesome trip that much better. Reviewed on: 2017-06-17

Don and Jan Peterson I believe our guides name was Carlos but we were unable to post a survey that day due to our phones not working. I believe the day was March 10th. He was very professional, knowledgeable, gracious, and courteous. We would definitely recommend this tour and guide to anyone. Reviewed on: 2017-05-12
Amy Forrest William and Edgar were very hospitable and knowledgeable and provided a great experience! We were very lucky to be the only two going that day, so we got a private tour! We did the rafting tour on Penas Blancas and La Fortuna waterfall. We had a great time! We saw a ton of wildlife, including sloths, monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas, tons of beautiful birds and more during the rafting trip, ate delicious treats at a local farm, and then swam at the waterfall after a long trek down the stairs through the rainforest, followed by a delicious lunch, where we had the place all to ourselves! We had a wonderful time and throuroughly enjoyed all of it! Reviewed on: 2017-05-06
Tony Peluso Carlos was an incredible guide, and we had a fantastic experience on our Safari Float, Waterfall, and Volcano Hike tour. He was extremely knowledgable, friendly, and helpful. Without Carlos' assistance, we never would have seen the wide range of unique local wildlife that he pointed out to us during our tour. Indeed, his keen eye and telescopic lens allowed us to take numerous photographs of local wildlife that we will be able to cherish forever. We highly recommend this tour, and Carlos in particular.

Pierre-Louis I went on a 4-in-1 tour in one day: Safari Float, La Fortuna waterfall, Arenal hike with the guide; the fourth activity was Baldi Hot Springs. Our guide (Hansel) was a gem. He knew a lot about the fauna and flora, was funny and always helpful. He's very knowledgeable about Arenal Volcano and it's history. He went above and beyond to give our group (we were 5) a great experience. Transportation between activities, meals and snacks were included. I would absolutely recommend these guys, whether you're solo, with friends or with family. Reviewed on: 2017-04-18
