Jesus provided us with a wonderful experience of the area, whether floating down the canals, visiting the banana plantation, or just hunting for birds, frogs, monkeys, and sloths as we drove through the area. It's clear that he is very passionate and knowledgeable about his homeland. It was one of our best tours off a cruise ship.

We were met by our guide as we got off our cruise ship, I was a bit worried that the tour may not be any good and that we should have booked the tour with the cruise company, as we were kept waiting in the tour bus for quite a while waiting for 6 more people that didn't turn up.... More

Costa Rica is so rich in natural wonders, and Jesus with Gio Tours took us to what seemed like the best of everything, including white-faced monkeys climbing on us, finding scarlet macaws, crocodiles and so many exotic birds, a great 10-line zipline canopy tour, and more monkeys (howlers) on the way back. Jesus is a great ambassador for the country!

Jesus was an excellent guide. He knew the area very well and took us to places our other cruise passengers did not get to go on their cruise line excursions. We especially liked the small size of our tour group (only four of us, plus Jesus and the driver). Jesus, our guide, was passionate about making sure we learned about... More

We booked GIO tours through Costco and only because it was what they had to offer. We were pleasantly surprised with level of professionalism of our tour personnel. Jesus, our tour coordinator along with Jose the bus driver made this an extremely fun and informative shore excursion for all of us. Note here that my mother is 80 and not... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 8 in 1 tour with Gio Tours. Jesus was an excellent guide and is very knowledgeable about the area. He shared several of his "secret" places with us so we were able to see things that we would be unable to see had we been on a standard bus tour. Marcos is a wonderful driver and... More

We used Gio Tours for a shore excursion. The 8 in one tour was outstanding. There was only the three of us on the tour with our excellent guide Jesus and his driver Eleazar. We saw white face monkeys, crocodiles, and amazing birds. We would highly recommend this tour. The food provided was excellent.

We enjoyed a terrific tour recently whilst on a cruise. One of our fellow cruisers had booked a tour with GIO Tours and we couldn't have been happier. We were met at the pier and escorted to our vehicle, a comfortable air conditioned bus. Our tour guide was Jesus, a very knowledgable and friendly young man. Our driver was Francesco... More

We had such a great day with the friendly, knowledgable Jesus as our guide. The river tour produced an abundance of wildlife sightings and some huge crocodiles. The monkeys, lunch and all other stops were well worth it. We did the tour as a shore excursion in Puntarenas and were very pleased we did.

First off our guide Jesus was a revelation in customer service and knowledge.
