We had a fantastic day with Walter. We were picked up at 7:30 and drove directly to the boat tour. Walter was with us the entire time, pointing out monkeys, birds and reptiles. He and Jorge, the boat driver, were very accommodating for everyone to view and take pictures. After the boat tour, we stopped at a rural hillside soda... More

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica!! We started the day jumping into a picturesque waterfall and from there we went tubing. Following lunch, we went zip lining and ended the day at the hot spring. Randall never left our side the entire trip and even took pictures for us all along the way. His knowledge... More

Had a boat tour of Palo Verde National Park with Shaman Tours. From the moment Randall picked us up until he dropped us at our door we had an exceptional day. He is very knowledgeable and very passionate about his country. He was able to answer questions on just about any topic in relation to Costa Rica. The tour itself... More

Arenal) and 1 with Walter (a waterfall with other cultural interests) in November and December, Randall is fantastic with his knowledge of birds and animals as well as history. He first met with us and found out what our interests were then tailored the tours accordingly.... More

We booked Randall and Shaman Tours for a MonteVerde day trip. Randall offered great communication prior to arrival in Costa Rica and was prompt and courtesy the day of our trip. He was a native to the area so very knowledgeable to local information. My only complaint with Randall is that he texted several times while driving which made me... More

Costa Rica native Randall and his trusty driver Walter will make your experience memorable. Prior to our arrival, Randall was very responsive to our emails asking questions and was more than accommodating to make a modification to the Adventure day at the foot of the Volcano, replacing the horseback riding with a swim in a local waterfall. A comfortable and... More

Booked a shuttle to and from Liberia Airport to Playa Del Coco. Both drivers were on time, friendly and informative. We also booked the Arenal Volcano tour. Walter was great! He was very entertaining and a great driver. We had two delicious meals, a tour of a rain forest and and spa time. The sites were beautiful.

We booked the all day adventure excursion with the horseback riding, river tubing, zip line, and hot springs over the internet a few weeks before our trip. We didn't have to pay a deposit or anything which was nice. A couple times before the trip Randall emailed to set meeting time and place and also tell us exactly what to... More
