"The highlights were seeing the rainforest for the first time, the knowledge of our local guides was also amazing. Costa Rica has been the holiday of a lifetime for me…I cannot fault the service.
"I can't say that there was one specific moment - there were many. The country and the people were wonderful, despite their obvious poverty. Our tour guide Maria was first class, and went out of her way to make sure that everything went smoothly.

"Guides and staff excellent, friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.
Dr A Graham"
"Visiting the cemeteries for the Day of the Dead celebrations [was inspirational]. We also enjoyed the visits to the Mayan tombs which were brought to life by the excellent guides.
Mr Brian Walters"
"Havana was definitely the highlight, an architectural and historic gem. In addition, it was a hassle free city, very clean and everything easily accessible. Historic buildings are beautifully and subtly illuminated at night. The people for the most part are friendly, helpful and courteous.
Mr and Mrs Taylor"
"The two highlights of the holiday were Tortoguero and Cana Negro. The wildlife was fabulous, and varied. The forests were beautiful. We were very lucky to see an enormous migration of vultures.
Mrs Geraldine Stevens"
"We were so impressed by the conservation and environmental policies of Costa Rica. An example to the world! The flora and fauna were the reason we chose Costa Rica and we were not disappointed.
Mr John Kettle"
"Too many to mention. Loved the whole tour. Great informative guide, well planned, great sights and music.
Ms Angela Mindel"
"We really enjoyed Trogon Lodge at San Gerado de Dota. Lovely location, friendly staff and excellent local guides.
Mr Colin Dickinson"
"Many inspirational moments in spotting wildlife of amazing diversity in the nature reserves and alongside the road, thanks to our hawk-eyed guide. I would also mention the wonderful swim on the beach at Manuel Antonio on the last full day of the tour. You'd have to go a long way to find a better sea-swim.
Mrs Fiona Anderson"
"There were numerous, but certainly seeing Aztec and Mayan cities in real life, and quietly soaking up their atmosphere, constituted highlights of the tour.
Mr David Kennaby"
"We thought it important to let you know how much we enjoyed it and how well we thought it was planned…Thank you for organising it.
"The riverboat trips were marvellous, both in Tortuguero and Los Chiles. Huge amount of wildlife and excellent local guides and drivers.
Mr Roger Piggin"
"Difficult to choose! Seeing the beautiful colonial buildings, some beautifully retsored and others, often still inhabited, crumbling around us. Also, visiting the Monumento Ernesto Che Guervara and hearing the passion in our guide's voice as she explained about the battle of Santa Clara. My husband would say the old cars!
