Iris Padilla Carlos was excellent! The pictures he was able to help us capture were so beautiful! Not all tour guides have the equipment Carlos had, that's an important detail travelers should be aware of when booking tours! Pura Vida! Reviewed on: 2017-09-05
Laura Siqueiros We had an incredible time with William today and can't imagine having experienced La Fortuna any other way. We saw toucans, monkeys, butterflies, and every plant imaginable. William was informed and experienced beyond compare, and we feel exceedingly lucky to have spent a day with him. We'd highly recommend Rainforest Explorers to anyone looking to visit La Fortuna.

Stacey Roper Keller We had an awesome experience! The tour guide William was funny and extremely knowledgeable about the plants and animals that we saw. William also shared many great personal stories about the volcano and the area that enhanced the experience. The tour was seamless from place to place. They showed up right on time as arranged. Some of the best parts were when they saw random animals on the side of the road and would pullover and let us get out and take pictures. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to have a fun filled day of adventure. Our driver Edgar was great too. Reviewed on: 2017-08-23

Kalinda Blair What can I say this company is amazing and the guide we had was great! We did two tours with the company the la Fortuna waterfall/ volcano hike and the safari float / chocolate tour. I have to say they were super professional, great sense of humour, very informative and knowledgable and great at spotting wildlife. I would highly recommend this company and those tours to anyone. The chocolate tour was so amazing one of the highlights of the trip! Reviewed on: 2017-08-19
Nick Moore William was our guide for this Safari float tour. It was amazing made all the more special by the knowledge of William and how he helped us learn about the wildlife and the area we were in. He was brilliant with our boys ( aged 9 and 11) and they were captivated by his many stories and are looking forward to letting their friends know. I would highly recommend this to anybody who is visiting Costa Rica and ask for William if you want to hear his incredible stories of Arenal and around. Here are some of the wildlife we saw from our raft written by our kids! Iguanas, Jesus Christ lizard, Howler monkey, White Faced monkey, two toed sloth, porcupine, Cayman, turtles, kingfishers, tiger herons, boat billed heron, blue jeans frog, honeybee, long nosed bats, laughing falcon, chesnut toucan. All the best and many thanks to William. Nick, Sadie, Finley & Aidan. England - Aug 2017 Reviewed on: 2017-08-18
Charles lee William is a guide with broad knowledge and experience. We're very please to have him as our waterfall and volcano 2 in 1 tour on Aug 5. Particularly, we enjoy the volcano hike a lot though the trail is steep and exhausting. Reviewed on: 2017-08-15
Kelly Hernandez This was one of the best tours that we were given on our trip. Willam our tour guide was very friendly and patient with us. He was very informative and had many stories to tell! We could tell he loved his job! Edgar our driver was fantastic and super friendly! The food we had for lunch was incredible, the best meal I've eaten on this trip! I would recommend this tour to anyone who comes to visit Costa Rica. Thank you so much to William and Edgar! Reviewed on: 2017-08-09
Ronald Riesenbach A wonderful day in the hands of Tony the guide and Edgar the driver. On the hanging bridges tour we were treated to fabulous sights including poisonous snakes, poison arrow frogs, tarantulas, toucans, Motmot birds, strangling trees, monkey vines, etc. all explained patiently and expertly. Tony brought with him a high-powered telescope so that we could see distant birds as well as wolf spiders having lunch seemingly 3-inches from your face. The Fortuna falls was a delight, but you have to have good lungs to climb down and up again (500+ stairs). In all, a memorable and delightful tour. Highly recommended. Reviewed on: 2017-08-07
Sharon Bruyere We had the BEST experience today with William. He was so informative, teaching us so much on the hike. He was friendly and fun! Edgar our driver was so friendly too! We are vegetarians and didn't expect much from our lunch. It was one of the BEST vegetarian dishes we have ever eaten! Overall our entire family gave this experience a 10+ on a scale of 1-10. Thank you for one of the best experiences ever!! Thanks William!! Reviewed on: 2017-07-31

Patricia Wallwin Minor and Tony were great! Tony was extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife and the nature we toured through. Tony made special stops for us to view some wildlife and we were thrilled to have been able to see a sloth sleeping in a tree. We were also able to see a Howler monkey and many amazing insects and reptiles during our tour of the hanging bridges. Our lunch was traditional Costa Rican fare and it was delicious!!! Thank you for the amazing experience and fun! Reviewed on: 2017-07-24

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
