See a Lot in This Whirlwind Shore Excursion
Apr 2019 • Couples
GEO Tours packed a lot into this shore excursion and we enjoyed it all! Our guide was waiting for us with a spotless bus and our names on a sign. We started with white-faced monkeys at a preserve - a real kick to watch! Then the hour-long boat float down the alligator river was exciting. Our guide used a mirrored light to point out the critters along the shore. One 10 foot alligator came straight for our boat - yikes! A scenic drive along the coast followed, with a basic open-air grilled lunch. Our guide helped us buy a bag or Costa Rican coffee - a delicious souvenir 1/2 kilo for $16 US. Highly recommend this tour!

Fabulous tour with Gio Tours in Costa Rica
Mar 2019 • Couples
On 9 March 2019 we were on a Holland America Cruise and were collected on time at the port to go on the 8-in-1 Costa Rica tour. We were taken to a small minivan which was great as it made it a very intimate tour. Adonis (our guide) and Carlos (the driver) were terrific and very knowledgeable about the animals and wildlife. We had a fantastic day seeing the capuchin monkies in their natural reserve; then a trip on the river to see the crocodiles and plenty of wildlife. We had a great Costa Rican lunch. We never had any worries about getting back to the ship on time. A wonderful day out and can thoroughly recommend Gio Tours.

Dec 2018 • Couples
Met at Caldera Port by Jesus our guide & Leo our driver in a clean modern minibus. The tour was booked for just the two of us but another passenger from the ship joined us at the last minute when we gave her information of the planned tour.
Jesus ascertained at the start that we preferred a 'nature tour' rather than a 'shopping / souvenirs expedition'. First stop was to see & hear the 'Howling Monkeys' and then the 'White Faced Capuchin Monkeys'. Throughout the day we were fortunate to see many birds & animals in there natural habitats with expert information provided by Jesus.
Part of the day was spent on a delightful 'Jungle Boat Safari Tour'. Whereas the other boats we saw were full ours only had five passengers. Together with a very helpful guide it made for a very pleasant experience. Crocodiles, iguanas, birds and fauna were all seen up close. A delicious Costa Rican lunch was enjoyed at the end of the cruise. As a contrast to our 'nature' day we visited Jaco a southerly point that has a lovely beach and scenery backed by a large hotel / apartments.
A day tour that we highly recommend and if you can ask for the superb Jesus as your Guide that would be the icing on the cake. Jesus has the knowledge & ethusiasm to know the best places to visit.

8 in 1 Costa Rica Tour from Punta Arenas
Oct 2018 • Friends
We were a part of a 15 person group from Holland America Lines Volendam 15 Day Panama Canal voyage. On our Friday, October 26 stop Costa Rica, we participated in the Gio Tours 8 in 1 Day Trip. It was fantastic! Jesus was our guide for the day and he took excellent care of us. He has a very good eye for spotting birds and animals in the wild and helping us get into position to see them and get some photos.

The trip was well planned - just the right number of stops so that we didn't have to spend long amounts of time in the van. Jesus also recognized that people from cruise ships might need some supplies and personal items so he arranged a stop at a supermarket. He even went up and down the aisles helping people translate and convert money. That was super helpful.

I highly recommend Gio Tours and specifically, Jesus as a guide. Next time I vacation in Costa Rica, I intend to engage them again.

Thanks!

Great tour and guide
Oct 2018 • Couples
Overall great tour off the cruise ship; much more intimate and personalized and at a reasonable price. We were on a small bus with 10 total. They were waiting for us at the pier and dropped us back at the ship with plenty of time to spare. Pablo was passionate and extremely knowledgeable about the local wildlife and flora and our driver was safe and courteous. We enjoyed about every aspect of it: still laugh at our videos of the capuchin monkeys crawling on our shoulders eating the bananas, spotting macaws along the coast, a toucan up in the tree on the ocean vista stop and a great, peaceful trip up and down the Tarcoles River with herons, egrets and of course the crocodiles. Lunch was a nice, relaxed one hour break at open air restaurant with chicken, beans, rice, plantains, potatoes. Souvenir shop stop was to a large place that a lot of tours were stopping st but grabbed some coffee and chocolate. The ending town driving tour was nothing special to see but that is the town. Only minor complaint is that the leg room was tight for a 6’ tall person and a few stretches of the road were rough/under construction but there are plenty of stops and you are not in the van for more than 45-60 minutes at a stretch. You can pay via credit card when you return to the pier. Highly recommended!

Still raving about this tour.
Jan 2018 • Friends
We booked this tour on our own prior to cruise. Our guide, Pablo, was waiting at the pier when we arrived with a newer, very clean bus. Our first stop was White Faced Capuchin Monkeys sighting area. This was a great stop and I would have been very satisfied if this was the only stop, but this tour kept delivering. Pablo was very aware of the tides that would affect our Jungle Safari Boat tour and got us to that portion of our tour early so we could fully enjoy the Tarcoles River. He was very good to point out various wildlife, and our boat captain did an amazing job navigating us thru the sometimes low river. We did see that another tour boat got hung up on a sand bar and had to transfer passengers from one boat to another. Thankfully, due to the skill of our tour staff, we cruised through without incident. We then stopped at a local restaurant for a delicious, very filling lunch of fish, chicken, rice and beans, vegetables, tortillas, fruit juice, and honey coconut bars. Next we went to a small fishing village to get a glimpse of life for the locals. Then up the mountain for what was supposed to be a scenic view of the ocean with our cruise ship visible. We did indeed see this, but it was short lived as our attention was drawn to the Macaws and Toucans flying in the wild. Truly amazing and some great pics were captured by many. Our next stop was at a souvenir shop. This stop was a little too brief for me, but did save me money. Given more time, I probably would have spent much more!. Our final stop was a local fruit stand. Pablo kept the entire tour interesting and was very informative about Costa Rica. We arrived back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting this beautiful country. Be sure to take your camera!

Great Tour!!
Apr 2018 • Couples
Having never been to Costa Rica, husband and I decided to take the GIO 8 in 1 with a group from the ship --- advise you book privately--less expensive than with ship. Easy pick up from the cruise pier. It was a great tour ---- the boat tour was exciting as we saw macaws and a mother alligator very aggressively protecting her young. (Keep hands inside the boat!!). We had Manual and Abonys who were great guides and did everything possible to sight all the wildlife. Nice lunch included and provided a full overview of Costa Rica in several hours. Highly recommend if you only have one day in Costa Rica.

We did the Costa Rica Highlights - 8 in 1 tour with Gio Tours. Reasonable cost, well planned, good guide (Jesus) and driver, good lunch, started at 8:15, ended at 3:45. Saw pretty much everything as advertised.
No wifi on bus even though advertised and on side of bus, small 6 oz water bottle for the whole day, did not return us to ship, dropped us off in town, no choice.

Dear TravelingBill, Thank you for taking your time to write us a review. We are glad you enjoyed our 8 in 1 Highlights of Costa Rica Tour and that the tour guide and driver made a good job. We apologize for the lack of WiFi on some areas of the tour, the Wifi we offer is through a cellphone signal and in Costa Rica there are still areas which doesn't count with full coverage yet. And the drop off outside the port was because of the long line to enter the pier, however, we have already talked to our tour guides and drivers and will avoid this situation from happening again at all costs. We appreciate your feedback. If you ever come back to Costa Rica again don't hesitate in letting us know as it would be our pleasure to show you every detail of this beautiful country!
