Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We loved loved this tour from start to finish. Even with covid restrictions, Jorge found limited entry museums for us to visit and explore. He was knowledgeable of the city's history as well as, the country's. We found the political and military history quite compelling. Ended our day in a trendy, up and coming neighborhood that was perfect for a late lunch and libations. Definitely recommend for anyone who appreciates small, personal tours.

Jorge (Jay) is extremely knowledgeable and customer-focused. He was a great communicator with regard to organizing and meeting, answered our wide-ranging questions, and adapted the tour to our interests. We learned a ton about San Jose & Costa Rica. i highly recommend!

We heard about Cooltour from a friend of ours who had recently used them to help plan a trip to Costa Rica. She had so many wonderful things to say about Jorge, her guide that we decided to give Cooltour a call and our friend was right. We met Jorge in San Jose and after he showed us around and sat with us over a cup of coffee we felt like we were sitting with an old friend more than a tour guide. Jorge helped us with food, places to stay, things to do and uncrowded spots full of history and charm. Jorge's Pura Vida attitude and extensive knowledge of ALL of Costa Rica helped make our trip unforgettable. From San Jose to Arenal and all the way down to Manuel Antonio, Jorge was more than just professional and personal, he will be a friend for life.

Cooltour comes with highest recommendations. PURA VIDA!

Jay, of Cool Tours, arranged my wife, brother and sister and I a dream vacation. We visited coffee farms, viewed awesome waterfalls, floated down a jungle river and ate delicious Costa Rican food. We took in the incredible surroundings of the cloud forest, rain forest and the coast. We contemplated diverse flowers, birds, monkeys, lizards, etc. One of the most remarkable days was at the poolside of our beach hotel- the fascinating howler monkeys played, scrambled, slept, somersaulted and otherwise gave us a ringside seat for their performance. It was an amazing adventure.

Costa Rica was a delightful experience. You have many of the sites and sounds of Hawaii, but at a much lower price and less travel time. This is a perfect vacation paradise for honeymoon couples, empty nesters and adventurous travelers. We spent the weekend at Hermosa beach, which is better than most beaches because it is warm, shallow and has beautiful trees to lounge under when you need shade. We took a boat trip to see an cave that can only be explored at low tide. Truly stunning. Then we traveled to Hacienda Guachipelín. Wonderful accommodations and so many adventures. Hot mud bath, hot springs, horseback riding, white water tubing and zip lining. I have all of these elsewhere on my travels, but these were over the top in quality and beauty and VERY reasonably priced. Our guide treated us like royalty. We didn't have to worry about anything. We later visited La Fortuna to see the Arenal Volcano. The Hanging Bridges provide many beautiful tropical vistas with a moderate hike. Cooltour handled our accommodations, adventures and transportation. They did a great job of making our 10 days a perfect winter escape to paradise.
