I can’t explain how amazing this tour was!!! Our guide Tony was the best and he made it so special!! I loved every minute of the 12 hour day.

We had a fantastic day touring with Tony. He was calm and peaceful as we walked through the rainforest, but when he spotted wildlife or an interesting plant, he quickly set up his scope and offered fascinating information about what we were seeing. It was like he had superpowers for finding camouflaged critters: an eyelash pit viper, a blue jeans frog, howler monkeys, a toucan, and many colorful birds. He used our phones to take amazing photos through the lens, which was an unexpected treat. The waterfall was gorgeous, and we loved splashing around in the chilly water. Tony kindly offered to snap a photo of us since I had left my phone in the car. Overall, we felt heaps of gratitude for Tony and our driver, Minor, for such a special day.

RainForest explorers went above and beyond for our 3-in-one tour! We went on the safari where Carlos, our guide, did such an awesome job stopping and spotting animals. We had our little one (4 year old) and he had a blast. After we finished the safari activity we had a snack before heading over to La Fortuna waterfall. Our driver, Edgar, was our feet and was always very kind transporting us to the next location. La Fortuna waterfall was amazing, and we had the chance to swim in an area where the current wasn't that strong. Moving on to our lunch in la finca. It was amazing! Food was delicious! Best meal we had the entire time in Costa Rica! We even had the opportunity to see some animals who were nearby the finca. Ending our tour with the chocolate tour was great! We had the chance to learn and eat at the same time. I highly recommend RainForest Explorers to anyone thinking of doing tours. Our guide and driver were both very knowledgable and awesome. They were both very hardworking men! They are amazing! I am recommending them to my family and friends.

The tour was great!! Our tour guide Jason was wonderful. We saw frogs, spiders and monkeys on the hanging bridge tour. The Fortuna waterfall is worth climbing the 500 steps. We loved the chocolate tour! It was very interesting with a chocolate tasting at the end. The drive to the lunch place was longer than expected but the food was delicious! We highly recommend Rainforest Explorers!

The Hanging Bridges were awesome, Carlos took us through every detail and helped us get some amazing photos that we will have forever. We saw bats, snakes, birds, spiders, spider monkeys and howler monkeys. We also saw tons of insects, flowers and plant life, which Carlos described in amazing detail and answered every question he was asked . The lunch following the tour was delicious and authentic with yummy ice cream for dessert. My family picked this tour as our favorite adventure during our 10 day trip, and Carlos was our favorite guide as well. Pura Vida !

My tour guide was Hanzel and I must say that he was absolutely amazing. I have been on other tours in different countries and sites, a tour guide can make or break the entire experience and Hanzel was top notch. He was very informative, made funny jokes, was able to answer every question we had asked, and made the experience one of the most memorable in the many trips I've taken. But overall the experience was amazing, from the staff being nice, to all of the animals and insects we were able to see, to the quick response that the company had and how accommodating they were. I would definitely and highly recommend this organization/tour to others that come looking for a great deal with a one of a kind experience. Thank you guys so much!

Amazing. From start to finish, everything was perfect. Our pick-up was on time, and our tour guides were warm and welcoming. Carlos, who took us on the safari float was fantastic. He spotted all sorts of animals: beautiful birds, white faced monkeys and sloths. His tour was educational, perfect for both adults and kids. Pedro took us to La Fortuna Waterfall and was also an amazing guide, telling us so many amazing facts and just being a wonderful all around host. These two were an incredible pair, not to mention our driver who took us everywhere safely! And finally, the two food stops were fantastic. The snack on the farm is both delicious and interesting. Lunch is stunning, to end up in that spot was magical and the perfect end to a wonderful day. Thank you!

Jorge was our guide and we loved him. All 3 destinations were amazing - really a perfect day. The only thing we would do differently is maybe not drive so far for lunch. There was a good bit of driving involved with pickups and the sites, so would be nice to eat somewhere more convenient. I was impressed when our guide even stopped along the road to show us a sloth in the trees. Pura Vita!
