We loved everything about this activity! Our guide, Freddy, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He picked us up right at our hotel in San Jose and dropped us back off at the same place. We learned all about the process of making coffee as well as the history of coffee in Costa Rica. At Poas volcano we were able to see the full crater without any clouds in the way, which is rare. Lastly we went to Peace Lodge And walked around some of the nature exhibits (butterfly garden, frog garden, etc.) before hiking down to the waterfall. Along the way we also stopped for breakfast and lunch, both with amazing and authentic food!! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a day trip!

This was such a good way to kick off my travels in Costa Rica! I felt super comfortable doing this as a solo female traveller, and I met some really lovely people over the course of the day. The tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable, and the overall day wa as great balance between exploring at an easy pace and learning lots! Definitely worth the price, I really recommend!

Everything from the beginning, from the coffee plantations, to the waterfalls and the volcano, everything was impeccable! 10/10! Marco is in our hearts ❤️❤️❤️

Doka, Sarchi and Grecia were great tours! We learned a lot and were able to drive through the beautiful countryside! It was a great day seeing some of the less busy, tourist areas of Panama! Our guide was very knowledgeable too! Get ready to learn about Panamanian culture and get some great photos!

Ronnie, our tour guide was funny, down to earth, and very knowledgeable. He took great care of his tourists and we could tell he enjoyed what he does. I will request him anytime I do this tour again.
