We were a group of 10 on this private tour arranged by one of our cruise critic roll call members. We were met outside the cruise terminal on a very rainy morning, which was appropriate for our boat ride through the Tortuguero Canals and the rainforest. Ponchos were provided and the boat had a canopy cover, so we were kept... More

Eight friends did the canal tour from the cruise ship. The ship docked early, but our driver was there waiting for us outside the terminal.. Transport was excellent and we had a great day with lots of information provided about the area on route to our boat. We had the boat to ourselves for the canal tour and we saw... More

Fantastic! Private tour for just the two of us for $200. Perfect taxi pick up. Amazing boat tour on the canal, tranquil, peaceful, beautiful in a shaded well maintained boat. William is a lovely gentleman with an incredible eye for spotting plants and creatures among the vegetation. Wonderful birds of all sorts, great and small, sloths, caiman, iguana, flowers, rare...

So beautiful and tranquil! Our own cabbie tour guide was waiting for us with our name printed out. He gave us coines from Costa Rica to keep and off we went to a serene boat ride with another couple down the canal and saw monkeys, sloths, and beautiful birds. From there we hiked the rain forest and saw many flowers... More

All the reviews are spot-on... this is a top-notch company. From pick-up to drop-off, we were treated to a completely private tour that included all the items William and I had discussed prior to our arrival. If you want a good taste of Costa Rica in this region, definitely book here. Don't tour the river on a boat packed with... More

William Guerrero, Tortuguero Wildlife Tour, operates an excellent tour service of the canal and the surrounding area. Our guide, Manuel, was dynamite. He explained much of the flora and fauna in the area with humor, knowledge and good English. We arranged this private tour for eight instead of the cattle-call of the cruise line. You can no longer go to... More

I contacted William through Trip Advisor the day before our cruise ship docked in Puerto Limon. He wrote back promptly and I called him when we got into port. We negotiated a three hour trip through the Tortugero canals including transport to and from our ship. Forty minutes later our driver was waiting with our name on a sign, and... More

Excellent guides on both the banana plantation tour and on the much more important canal tour. Very knowledgeable people who could identify and explain the fauna and flora.

We went on the Tortugero wildlife tour from a cruise ship - boarding a small boat with 16 others we set of on a tour of the canal. Our guide explained about he wildlife in and around the canal pointing out birds species, a three fingered sloth and best of all a cayman. We really enjoyed the trip looking out... More

Having researched Tortuguero National Park, I wanted to spend more time on the canals than the cruise ship tours were offering. I emailed William the owner to see what was available and he offered us 3 hours on the canals and a tour of Port Limon for a very reasonable price. He told me the name of the taxi driver... More
