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