Amazing day! Best trip ever!

I can’t remember enjoying a day trip this much. Our guide Levi was knowledgeable, funny, super patient, and very kind. I was worried about the stairs at La Fortuna, but he encouraged me and stayed with me the entire way. Our group was able to see many different kinds of wildlife from howler monkeys, strawberry poison dart frogs, bats, and even baby tarantulas! Moreover, our group got along really well and everyone had a blast! I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to experience this amazing slice of Costa Rica!

If you want to visit rainforest and experience it take this tour. The Arenal Volcano hike was amazing you see all kinds of trees and greenery along the way. the Hanging bridges well worth it this is strait of the movies! 11 hanging bridges takes you through the forest , we saw monkeys, sloth , bats , anteater.... As far as the waterfall be aware you need to take about 1050 steep steps to get to it, if you are not in good shape that will be a problem. When we got to the fall it was very crowded and almost regret going . Best place to see it is before you take the steps the lookout point which we took the photo. Our guide was amazing and fun Shout out to Erica!

Tour was outstanding. Guide (Levi) was informative and hilarious. Kept the group (5 different groups of friends or spouses) engaged the whole time. Found wildlife we never would have seen without him. We had considered doing these piece individually without a guide, but would have missed 90% of th experience without he tour.

Raul was an amazing tour guide and he got us up close with wildlife he had a telescopic camera, so we were able to see so many animals. He took great photos and was entertaining and informative. Highly recommend the tour!! Beautiful sights and kid-friendly. The food was delicious too!!

Even if you only have one day in La Fortuna, if you do this tour it’s likely you spent your time well here. The Arenal volcano hike is unique as it is on the volcanic rock that is beginning to transform back into jungle, and you will learn about the history of the area and the ecology as you walk. The waterfall is magnificent and the long walk down the 500 stairs to swim there is very worth it. The sight at the bottom is surreal, and the water crystal clear. Yet, the hanging bridges walk was the best part of the tour. The group I was in was lucky to see monkeys, beautiful birds, butterflies, a sloth, and more. It’s up to chance what wildlife you will see when you go, but I appreciated having a guide help with spotting animals and teaching more about them. Oh, and our guide was fantastic! Erica went above and beyond to make this a special adventure and was enthusiastic to help us find animals and use her binoculars to take stunning pictures for us.

My wife and I did this trip and had a blast. We highly recommend it but think you should know that it is not a easy hike. The day started with the hanging bridges which was fantastic. The guide (Levy) showed us a ton of animals that we would have missed if we did not go with him. After the hanging bridges, we did the volcano walk. This is not an easy walk. I would consider this AT LEAST a moderate to more difficult walk, however it is worth it. After completing the volcano walk, we did the waterfalls which is approximately 400-500 steps down and then you have to come up after swimming. This is medium level but tiring after swimming. While the walks are not the easiest, I would still highly recommend it!

Great experience with a great guide but lots of hiking

This is a great tour with a wonderful tasty lunch. Highlight for us was the hanging bridges. Our guide Levi was wonderful at spotting animals and we saw a tarantula, a snake, poison dart frogs and spider monkeys. One word of caution though- this tour involves a lot of hiking. The waterfall has 500 steps down and then you have to go back up. The bridges are a 2.5 mile loop and the volcano hike is roughly 2 miles over really rough terrain with big rocks. It was really challenging for our 4 year old and for my dad with bad knees. I might have skipped out on the volcano hike with my kid if I had known the condition of the trail.

We had a great time. Levi was amazing, entertaining and best of all knowledgeable. Every aspect of the tour was expertly orchestrated including the previews. Levi took time to explain everything beforehand and that was truly appreciated. The tour was AWESOME however as with anything worth while it was demanding. That being said I am soooo glad that I booked this tour. Although our muscles ache our pride shines. Once in a lifetime experience. NO REGRETS!!!

Sure, you could buy and do these activities yourself, but it was super convenient that they pick you up at your local resort and having them navigate the curvy roads and not having to worry about entrance fees or anything was a relief. Also, Erica was a great guide who led us on this all day journey! She gave us local facts about wildlife and the history that we would not have gotten otherwise. Also, she is a great photographer! She offered to take pictures of us and then captured multiple great angles, switched to panorama and wide angles herself which was above and beyond!

An exhausting and amazing day. Raul our guide was incredible. Seriously. He took photos and videos. He was personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. He made us feel right at home and very safe. We had the best time hiking, swimming, and spotting wildlife. The lunch was delicious as well. The whole experience was perfect. We ended a little later than the suggested time but that was no problem.

Excellent day with our friendly, helpful tour guide and the smooth sailing driver. Saw some excellent flora and fauna. They weren't hesitant to stop on the side of the road to show us a sloth and a toucan, too! No rush for our enjoyment of the tour. Excellent!
