Hansel was amazing! He’s engaging, friendly, informative and an all around blast to spend the day with. This tour was the highlight of our 10 day trip and we will definitely be recommending this to our friends and family.

Jorge and Jonathan were the BEST! Jorge was so knowledgeable about the country, its history, and all of the wildlife we saw... he really gave me one of the best days I had on my entire vacation! I would highly recommend this full-day tour to anyone - it’s a lot of hiking and your legs will be sore but the views, the education, and the guides themselves are phenomenal and all the walking is SO worth it!

LESLIE WILLIS

2019-02-19

Fantastic experience, felt like family throughout. Far and above exceeded expectations. Friendly and incredibly knowledgable tour guides (much love to Julio and Hansel) and the lunch provided at their local restaurant was just what we needed. Great sense of humor too, can't beat that. Would recommend to any traveller, young or old.

Phil Pollack

2019-02-02

Our guide, Jorge, and driver, Minor, were awesome. Jorge went above and beyond to find a toucan for us because we told him we really wanted to see one. The tour was an honest-to-goodness full day (approx 9 hours), so definitely felt like we got our money's worth, and Jorge paced everything really well so we never felt rushed. Also the lunch was OUTSTANDING!

Chelsea Martinez

2018-12-30

Edwin, Michael and Hansel were incredible! So much knowledge about Costa Rica enjoying the incredible wildlife and beauty floating the river and exploring the waterfall. The delicious snacks and lunch at the 2 locations were also a highlight! 5 star experience for our family (with 3 adult children) who usually love adventure but equally loved the float and waterfall! A MUST SEE!!

Julio has been our tour guide in the El Silencio Reserve Arenal, he's very good, providing lot of information on the flora, fauna and of course in the vulcanos in general and in particolar of the Arenal. We did not see many animals but we know: it is nature, we were happy for the 3hours (and more!) tour for what se have been able to see and learn. Pura vida.

Great tour and great way to see many parts around Arenal Volcano in one day !!

Our guide Julio was really good and knowledgeable. We had a great time visiting hanging bridges, volcano, waterfall and relaxing time at hot springs. Food was great and Julio was looking after us all day, making sure we are all ok. It was a small group which was great. We could all enjoy listening to our guide. I would highly recommend.

We enjoyed our trip and had a great time. The guide was incredible. He made sure we got to see the various type of animals he pointed out. He was fun and excited about what he was doing which made it fun and educational. I would recommend this tour to my friends.

Cindy Defranco

2018-12-21

Overall, we're glad we did the volcano hike and have no regrets. But, I didn't think our guide was very helpful. At many times our guide walked well in front of us, at a very fast speed, not allowing us to enjoy our surroundings. I felt like I needed to walk extremely quickly to keep up with him. We told him many times that we were interested in seeing wildlife (and he brought his telescope lens), but only stopped a handful of times to try and spot a bird. It seemed like he was rushing through it. Like I said, my husband and I are glad we did it because him and I had fun together. But, I was hoping for a guide that would have been more personable and helpful.

From start to finish this tour was just incredible. Our tour guide Carlos met us at the hostel and explained how the day was planned out. We started with a tour along the river spotting wildlife, including white faced monkeys, howler monkeys, river otters, and many many birds. We then moved on La Fortuna waterfall and fortunate enough to have a swim. After lunch we hiked up to the Arenal volcano which was breaktaking. Along the way, Carlos was able to spot an abundance of wildlife and gave us the detailed history of the volcano and how it affected thrle nearby towns. Along the way he was able to answer all of our questions regarding everything, from the wildlife to the history of Costa Rica itself. I cannot praise him enough. He was fantastic. The end of the tour finished with relaxing in the hot springs. All food and water was provided and it really was a fantastic day.

Sameena Williamson

Our guide Tony was super. He was very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions. He showed us several animals, birds, and insects we would never have notice if it wasn't for his expertise.

Nancy A Whitley & Kevin G Whitley

2018-10-11

This was a beautiful tour organised with extreme care, punctuality and friendliness. We had the chance to experience all sorts of sights in La fortuna in just 8-9 hours which is great for someone spending just a few days in the area. Our guide Carlos, was very thorough in his explanations and helped us spot every type of wildlife in the floating safari, the road and the waterfal as he was fully equipped. The food was great As it gave us a taste of the local delicacies, as was the overal experience. Albeit a bit pricey, we would fully reccomend this trip and our guide Carlos to anyone in La fortuna.

Kelli McDermott

The entire day was an A+ From the moment we were picked up at our hotel and having our driver point out and take the time to stop for us to see howler monkeys along the road side. Momo could not have made our rafting trip any more enjoyable. Our teenagers had a blast on this wild ride. Branden was an excellent guide and educator on the Costa Rican history. What a great surprise to learn about the sugar cane and moonshine. Truly loved the casada meal prepared for our family. Highly recommend

Nancy Graham

2018-08-04

This was one of our best days in Costa Rica and all were excellent. We learned so much about the rain forest, Costa Rica history and enjoyed each part of the tour. This tour was an a great way to see many things if you like to try to pack in as much as you can to your trip. We are an active family but we were all tired at the end of the day, so the hot springs was a great way to end the day. Lots of steps at La Fortuna falls!

Nancy Graham

2018-08-03

Ziplining in Costa Rica lived up to the hype! We have traveled to several countries and always been told that CR had the best zipling-it is true! All of the guides were extremely professional. These ziplines are great as you do not hand brake, so you do not have to wear gloves and your fingers will not get caught. Beautiful flying over the rain forest, even if it is raining! Great gift shop as well

Michael took us on the raft and to the waterfalls. Did a great job narrating and locating animals. Went on the volcano hike with Carlos who was very knowledgeable and enjoyable. He was even able to locate a sloth, red dart frog, and red eye green tree frog to our delight. Thanks for the memories.

Sarah S Spiro

2018-06-28

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 !

Corey Phillips

2018-03-23

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!

Henry Workman

2018-03-14

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!

Jessica Goldberg

2018-02-22

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!

Martha DuBois

2018-02-18

The whole day was fantastic. Our tour guide Michael was great he had lots of information and I loved the scope he brought along which helped I see the animals and get great photos. The snack and lunch was so delicious. I also really appreciate that you went out of your way to help us see a sloth. We saw so many beautiful birds and monkeys. Thank you again for helping experience beautiful Costa Rica.

We booked this tour through a travel agent and were pleasantly surprised when it was just the two of us on the tour with the guide (sadly we cannot remember his name)! This is the first time we have been to Costa Rica and we are celebrating our honeymoon. Our guide made sure that we were able to enjoy our hanging bridges tour and we were lucky enough to see a sloth right off the bat! When we picked up other passengers, we went to la fortuna and had lunch afterwards. Our guide heard we were on our honeymoon and they even brought us a cake!!! It really gave us a great introduction to Costa Rica and will truly be something that we never forget.

We had an amazing time! Our guide was funny and knowledgeable. We first went to the La Fortuna waterfall. Our guide told us a lot of interesting things about the area and suggested the best places for pictures and swimming. We then had lunch which was so good I almost licked the plate. Seriously, the watermelon juice was incredible. We then did a volcano hike. It was phenomenal. We learned all about the eruption in 1968 and the effects on the community. Our guide even drew little diagrams to help us see how the volcano changed that day. He pointed out volcanic glass. We had incredible views of the volcano. Then we went for a walk through he jungle. He pointed out plants, different insects and animals and talked about the indigenous tribes. On our way back to the resort our guide pulled over so we could see a sloth he saw in the tree! He took pictures for us using his telescope thing. Overall so interesting and beautiful. Would totally recommend this excursion if you want to experience the volcano and really delve into the jungle. Our guide was really fun and cool, the type that you totally feel like he's a friend by the end. Pura vida!

I did the 2 in 1 Safari Float and La Fortuna Waterfall. It was an amazing experience. So peaceful as we went on the Safari Float, we were the only ones there. Our guilde spotted lots of lizards, a few different kinds of birds and a large family of monkeys. Then we had snack prepared by a local family. It's a little restaurant that they have at there house, nicely decarated with iguanas, birds, cows, and horses roaming around. A true Costa Rica cultural experience. Then we headed to La Fortunate waterfall, it was so beautiful, well worth the short hike, there were children and older adults there so you can do it 😊. Our guide gave us plenty of time to take pictures, swim or just relax by the water. Bring water/hiking shoes. After that we headed to Restaurante Tiquicia for lunch. The food was so delicious. I just wanted to keep eating although I was full. All of that was included in my package . They exceeded my expectations and I had a great time. If you are gonna be in this area you have to do this tour. You will get more than your money's worth. Go for it!!!

Carlos and William have deep knowledge of the forest plants and animals in the forest. They also provided a lot of information about Costa Rica in general. . We were so impressed that they quickly see or hear animals around us and share the view with their binoculars or scopes. We had an unforgettable experience. Thank you for everything.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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!

Hansel, our guide and Benny, our driver, were both fabulous. Great overall experience. We really enjoyed the time that was taken to make the tour special- from stopping to see animals and birds to obvious complete love of the area and the ability to share it with us. Thank you so much!

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!!

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.

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.

I booked the Waterfall and Volcano hike. Toni was the guide for the day. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the volcano, foliage and wildlife. We were very fortunate to see 3 troupes of howler monkeys, birds, spiders and rare one day orchids. He knows the area so well he was able to spot things that most people would have never noticed. I highly recommend this tour. It was flawless from pickup to drop off.

Jason was literally the best guide ever. Why? Cause he was knowledgeable about the plants, animals, and Costa Rican culture, patient, thorough with the tour, and his calm demeanor was pleasant. Minor our driver was excellent! He drove skillfully and carefully and cut us a delicious pineapple. It was presented very well and super sweet. We're so happy to have taken this suspended bridges tour, we've gotten to see beautiful poison dart frogs, an eyelash viper, coati, and... "twerk" bird (sorry I forgot the real name but Jason knows lol) thanks for the experience guys!

We saw an eye lash viper, howler & spider monkeys, coatis, wild pigs, tarantulas, toucans, wild turkey, sloths => what didn’t we see? Our snack and lunch were delicious! And our driver Minor was a great driver, didn't drive fast like a wild maniac which we appreciated. You couldn't ask for anything more!

Robin L Burgess

Carlos was our guide and he was quite simply amazing, we thoroughly enjoyed our day! It is always a pleasure to listen to someone weave a little magic by blending scientific information, a thorough understanding of the environment, and humour into one story after another. Very happy to have seen eyelash pit vipers, a tarantula, several monkeys, birds and especially for us, a toucan. It was very special to see everything so clearly through the telescopic viewer and then to be able to take crystal clear photos as well. You see and learn so much more with a guide, especially one who is enthusiastic and proud of what he does.

He spotted a Sloth that we would never have seen and a family of monkeys including babies. We saw three types of Kingfisher which is pretty exceptional. The food is perfect and lots of it. I would recommend the tour to anybody that wants a full day of amazing sites in Arenal.

Carlos and Mainor were fantastic! We had a wonderful day, weather was perfect and Carols was incredibly knowledgeable about...everything! Huge bonus that he had a scope and we were able to have a crystal clear view of all the wildlife (sloths in trees, vipers tucked away at tree stumps and various birds not to mention hiding tarantulas and other creepy spiders and lizards). Carlos answered every question with ease! Everything from types of trees, plants, flowers to how ants carry leaves to their homes! Hanging bridges, waterfall and cacao plantation were amazing. Great lunch, plenty of snacks, fresh fruit...it was perfect!

Jenna Rivers

2017-01-22

Guillermo and Minor (driver, excuse my spelling!) were fantastic. The waterfall and swimming hole were beautiful and refreshing. The Arenal Volcano hike was so full of knowledge and unreal beautiful. We saw a sloth, a toucan and spider monkeys, plus the volcano top because of the perfect weather. Guillermo was very informative with his 27 guiding years of knowledge, yet shared our excitement in every exotic creature we saw, as though it was his first time as well.

The tour we did was enjoyable and very non-strenuous. Perfect for people who want to enjoy all the beauty this area has to offer without doing much physical activity. (The steps leading to the waterfall may be difficult for seniors or those with disabilities, but is manageable even for those who are pretty out-of-shape). Miguel was very friendly and informative, teaching us all about the different plants and animals in the forest, drawing on his own experiences as a born-and-raised native who grew up on the mountain and survived the volcano eruption of 1968. He went above and beyond to show us cool things, even docking the raft to go into the woods and bring us a poison dart frog to look at. The waterfall was a fun experience, the volcano was beautiful, and the short hike was a nice end to the day. The food was amazing as well.

Carlos and Edgar were AMAZING! My daughters said that this was the best thing that they have done in Costa Rica so far. The 2in1 tour was great. We took our 3 year old daughter with us so it was a little hard at first, but a great workout for the family. If you ever choose to go on an Arenal tour, ask for Carlos to be your guide. The most knowledgeable, exciting, and fun tour guide I've ever come across. We had a very enjoyable time and truly felt like the experience was the highlight of our vacation. And Edgar was our amazing driver who was very sweet and safe!

Our guide Carlos Bonilla was very informative about the safari tour. He was able to spot several sloths and other animals. The tour is very relaxing, you sit in a tube and float down the river while enjoying the beautiful surroundings. We also did the Chocolate tour. The olivio family- Minor(owner), his son Otto and wife Yessenia gave a tour of their beautiful property. We had fresh coconut water from the tree on their farm. They squeezed sugarcane juice in front of us-my 11 year old daughter helped squeeze the sugarcane through the machine. Otto showed the chocolate making process in great detail. Yessenia gave a lot of history about cocoa farm, walked us through the farm and at the same time explaining about the farming . It was one of a kind experience and I would highly recommend this to enthusiastic learners!

As well as the plant life. In all my travels, I don't remember having such an amazing tour guide! Mir, our driver, was responsive to our needs and stopped when needed and safely got us from one destination to the other with out making us feel rushed or unsafe! :)

Our tour guide, Anthony, was excellent, gave us great amount of information regarding the area and the animals. Our driver Edgar was excellent as well he drove safely and offered us water several times throughout the trip. We were fortunate enough to see many animals in the safari float, snacks afterwards was delicious. The waterfall walk was tiring but worth going down and up the steps. Lunch was delicious and the chocolate tour was amazing. My only regret was eating too much at lunch as we received several fruit samples at the Chocolate Tour that we weren't aware that we would be receiving. Our time at the Chocolate Tour was very informative and the family that runs the farm there were very kind to us and showed us so much that we did not know. Only suggestion for the Chocolate tour is to warn the visitors a bit more regarding mosquitos and changing into better clothing or applying more bug repellent than usual to avoid bites. Overall I would recommend this 3 in 1 tour to everyone who wants to have an adventurous and informative filled day.

Carlos is very knowledgeable and helped us spot many animals along the float ride, including sloth, howler monkeys, porcupine, and many kinds of birds. The local snack and lunch were both very good as well. The car ride was good and the car was kept spotless and in perfect condition. Kudos to the driver Edgar. It was a great and unique experience overall. Thank you!

Jason was very knowledgeable about all of the local flora and fauna of the hanging bridges. When we were done, there was a snack of pineapple and cookies waiting for us, which was excellent. Then, we went to the La Fortuna waterfall. The swimming was cold but very cool. Lunch was excellent as well. Finally, we went to the lava trail. Jason told us all about the history of Volcán Arenal, and it was fascinating.

I had an awesome tour with William to the La Fortuna Waterfall and Arenal Volcano National Park with my sister this last week! We were picked up promptly from our hotel and driven to the waterfall with a group of six more people. We swam in the water at the waterfall and had a blast. William took us to a home for a delicious Costa Rican lunch of choice of beef, chicken or fish with rice, beans, fried banana, drinks and ice cream. Then we went to the Arenal Volcano where William educated us on the history as well as all the flora and fauna of the volcano, plants and wildlife. Saw a toucan in a tree. William is a perfect guide! He dropped us off back at our hotel on time. Everything was wonderful. Thank you!

Our 3 in 1 trip was one of the best travel experiences we have had ever, and we do a lot of traveling. Spending time with William, Edgar and Edgar's family was beyond just sightseeing. You don't just see Costa Rica, these people make you feel a part of it. William had so many great stories about his life and times he could and should write a book! He is a field expert with a lifetime of knowledge of Cost Rican animals, forests, and especially plants and birds. He has climbed the volcano eight times (now no longer permitted). We wanted to see toucans. All he had to do was listen. Then he took us right to them. It was a privilege to spend time with him. Edgar and Ileana were such gracious hosts. We had a chance to meet their new grandson and their daughter Yuliana who helped plan much our experiences in Costa Rica. We were welcomed like family and enjoyed a fabulous home-cooked meal. If you want to experience Costa Rica and not just see it, this tour is for you. We cannot recommend it highly enough.

Our tour was wonderful, we had a great guide and driver. Our favorite part of the tour was actually the lunch we had at a private home, very special!!! The food was homemade on the porch over a wood fire and delicious. Also would recommend Baldi Hot Springs, the buffet dinner was like nothing I've ever experienced. Again wonderful food, far above expectations for a buffet, great atmosphere. Would HIGHLY recommend Rain Forest explorers! Don't want to give away all of the surprises of the tour but they go ABOVE AND BEYOND to make the entire day special!!!
