Great way to spend 6 hours off the cruise ship! Our guides Jesus and Jose the driver were excellent (and funny). No language problem here! Jesus spoke excellent English and his jokes were timely and very funny. Newer bus seated 35 or so, but we booked a bus for 11, so be careful they don't lump you with other groups.... More

It was a cruise port stop, and we booked this 4-hr tour a few days before we left for the cruise. On the day of the tour, we were met by our Gio Tours guide Jesus, a very energetic young man who is a wealth of knowledge about the wild life in the canals. He spotted quite a few animals... More

Activities included: a tour of rural Costa Rica, a monkey plantation, a river safari seeing many species of birds, reptiles, and animals. The close ups of the crocodiles were the highlight of...

When planning for our Costa Rica adventure we came across Gio Tours. They had several tours but we wanted a little of everything. In reading further the 8-1 seemed to be the ticket for us, although they should change the name to something like Costa Rica in a Day! 😊 We asked for Jesus as our guide again based on... More
