3 in 1 total package: Coffee, Rainforest, Volcano
This was a very long tour but a good one. We started driving to the Coffee Plantation where we got a history of coffee in CR and the difference in the production of many types of coffee. Next we drove up the mountain to the active Poás Volcano. The walk was about 10 mins from where we parked. We were lucky to get a good picture as we only have 20 mins as a group to stay up and see the volcano. It was cloudy for most of the 20 mins but close to the very end, our group got the perfect view. Next we drove down to the Waterfall garden. This place had 5 different waterfalls, frogs, jaguars, butterflies, hummingbirds, snakes, and monkeys. Be careful walking down to the lower waterfalls, that walk back is tiring. All in all a good tour. The best was probably the rainforest/waterfall garden, the worse was the volcano. I would recommend anyone that loves nature to go on this tour. Everything just feels special because you are actually there and it's a once in a lifetime experience.

Excellent experience, lovely day and expert guide.

Excellent tour. Dani was a fantastic guide and we also had Juan Carlos as our driver. Dani explained everything in Spanish and English. We learned a lot about the Doka farm and bought some coffee for ourselves. We had plenty of time at the farm to walk around and enjoyed a really good breakfast.
Unfortunately we didn't get to see the volcano crater as it was cloudy but we still enjoyed the experience. We read a lot of reviews before going and it seems like the bad weather is common and you have to be lucky to get the best views. I would advise this combo tour as then you get to see more things and avoid getting disappointed by going just to the volcano.
We also loved La Paz Waterfall Gardens. We were not expecting it to be so beautiful and it took us a while to finish the hike as we were amazed by the landscape. There was a lot of variety of animals and plants. Animals are enclosed but they are rescued from illegal ownership and couldn't be released back to the wild.
We recommend this tour if you are close to San Jose and want to do a whole day trip close by.

This is a fabulous tour. The group was only 13 and Max was a fantastic guide. His mix of Spanish and English was excellent and he answered all of our questions. I never felt rushed or pushed to move on. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in a full day adventure.

This was a great combo tour. The breakfast at Doka Coffee was excellent, and I learned a lot about the coffee farm process and industry. I really enjoyed La Paz waterfall garden- especially the sloths and butterfly exhibits. It was a nice mini hike along the river, not too strenuous. We didn't have good views at the volcano but sometimes that's what happens with the weather, not much we can do about it! It was a long day with lots of time in the shuttle, but that's to be expected considering all the different places we stopped at.

I had an amazing day tour with Eric. He was a great guide and knows a lot about nature! He also makes sure that everyone in the group respects the animals and the nature. Thumbs up to preserving wildlife and planet earth.

Great Combo Tour
On this tour, we visited 3 places in one day. Starting at the Doka Coffee Plantation, we had breakfast and learned all about the coffee making process from seed to drink. They served a typical Costa Rica breakfast and great coffee. Then, we went to the Poas Volcano. Because
of the fog, we could not see very far into the crater, but we learned a lot. Then we went to the LaPaz Waterfall Gardens. The wild animals that are there are rescued animals and we're not captured in the wild. They have tropical birds, sloths, monkeys, butterfly garden, hummingbirds, wild cats, and frogs. Last was the waterfall hike which was very beautiful.

The guide Max and the driver were very hospitable. Max was an extremely knowledgeable and helpful tour guide.

Great tour
Dec 2019 • Couples
We recently went on this tour and had a good time. You have a great breakfast at the coffee plantation, and then get a tour and learn how they make the coffee. We went on another coffee tour in Monteverde which was a little bit more in depth and we got to see how they brew the coffee which was cool, so slightly disappointed by this one but it was fine. We then went to see the volcano, it was cloudy and we didn’t see it but we tried! The highlight was definitely la Paz waterfall gardens. It was cool to see the different species in Costa Rica and the waterfalls. The lunch was also delicious. This tour felt a little less guided than our other tours that we went on in Costa Rica but it was still a good day. The traffic in San Jose stinks so I definitely would limit the tours that you do from San Jose. They are very long days. We left at 6 AM and didn’t get back until 7 PM (not tour companies fault obviously).
