Eithel was the best tour...
Eithel was the best tour guide ever. Loved being in a smaller group so we could do all the activities ahead of larger groups. Thank you will recommend to friends, beautiful countryside- Pura Vida
Bucket list day
Oh my gosh we had SO MUCH FUN with our guide, Carlos! He was so friendly and knowledgeable and hands on, stayed with us through our whole park experience and made sure we knew what to expect for each piece of our adventure. I can’t say enough good things. All the staff at the park seemed to know and respect our guide and he really made it a personalized experience for us. Totally worth your time and money.
We had an awesome day! Carlos was an excellent tour guide. He was very attentive and accommodating. Someone in our group had mobility challenges so could not do all of the activities but he ensured she also had a great time. It was a very long day that included horseback riding, ziplining over amazing canyons, an exhilarating water slide, a great lunch, and time at the hot springs. I highly recommend this activity.
The events of the tour were all very fun and the park was amazing. The park staff was very professional and we had a great time. Our tour guide Yeudy definitely went above and beyond for us. Not only was he a great guide, we ran into some issues the morning of departure. Yeudy helped us work things out and never made us feel like we were imposing. I can't say enough good things about his quality of service. We will request Yeudy when we return.
Worth every penny
We loved this excursion. Carlos picked us up from the condo we were staying at and we had wonderful conversation enroute to our destination. Carlos was very knowledgeable about the area and made the time so much fun. The personal attention during the tour was worth a little extra money. I have to say the highlight was the zip line, which is saying a lot because I am not a fan of heights. Overall this experience was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
