“Reliable Service and Friendly Drivers”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We used Carrillo Tours to get to and from Playa Samara from Liberia Airport. William was very responsive by email and welcoming upon our arrival. His son was equally friendly on our ride back to the airport. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for reliable and reasonable airport transportation.

“Fabulous day trip”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Carrillo Tours is excellent. We arranged a custom tour with the company with 2 other couples. Milton our driver and Luis Miguel our guide were super. Our day trip took us on an adventure down the coast past Isletas, a lovely small community with picuresque schools, buildings and church, via a windy gravel road to Playa Coyote and Playa San Miguel, secluded off the beaten track beaches. Super swimming at Coyote. Highly recommend this company.

“A very poor experience”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 via mobile

We were disappointed in this tour. Thrre were about 22 people on the tour. After a 90 minute bus ride to Playa Ostional we were unloaded and ushered down a dark path to the beach. There were two guides and only two flashlights. The nature interpretation was very poor. The guide answered questions but gave no comprehensive explanation of the life history of the turtles. We even had to ask what species we were watching. The turtles cooperated. Some more flasHlights and a more energetic guide would have increased our rating significantly. Bring your own head lamps provided they have red filters.

On the positive side, when the company heard we did not enjoy our experience, the operator (Williamm) offered us a guided river tour complimentary. We enjoyed the experience and our guide, Rene, was very knowledgeable and plessant. That to me speaks to the professionalism of the operator but the inital problem needs to be corrected.

“Where are you?”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

After confirming the pick-up time the night before for a tour, the van was an hour late in picking us up. No call, no apology - just excuses. We decided at that time to keep our money and enjoy the day without being at the mercy of a poorly run tour. Be careful.

“Fabulous Service!”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

We booked a trip to the Monteverde Cloud Forest with Carrillo Tours during our vacation in March. We were traveling with our four children, ranging in age from six to 13, so we were a little nervous about taking such a long day trip. Our worries were for nothing. Our wonderful guide, William, who is the owner of the company, arrived early in the morning, and we knew instantly we were in good hands. Our van was very spacious and comfortable and we felt very confident with William. He is very knowledgable and friendly and we greatly enjoyed our time with him. The journey to Monteverde was fun and the extreme thrill of zip lining through the cloud forest was one of the highlights or our trip. It was certainly a fantastic experience for our children and one they will never forget. Following the trip, we booked our return shuttle service to the airport through Carrillo Tours. Once again, the service was fantastic. We will certainly be using this company again for our airport transportation and for any adventures we would like to take while in Costa Rica.
