Never made your due to horrible instructions and then they went offline right near the time we were supposed to meet
Thomas_B

Travel company did not communicate that what should have been 20-30 min ride was going to take hour and 15 Minutes. Then they didn’t answer the communicate with your operator for over 30 minutes so we turned around and missed whole thing. They also did not clarify it was walking tour and my fiancée or how much was and fiancée had recent surgery so doubt she could have done whole tour anyway. They need to provide actual details and if there are traffic issues that day communicate with buyer. Missed the whole thing and if it shows up on my credit card I’m going to terrorize their reviews on every travel app. Hopefully that won’t be necessary and they take my constructive criticism

Hello Thomas, we are sorry that you have missed the tour, but it is out of our control, knowing where you are located to be able to see how the traffic is, is practically impossible, we always send the address photos and google maps and we also call you by phone when they're late, but the phone doesn't always work. It really gets out of control knowing which hotel they come from and which route each client takes, we take into account any suggestion. Thank you

They gave poor directions to the meetup location. They attached photos instead of an actual address. There was no contact phone number so I couldn't even try and get help with directions. Also refused a refund when I wasn't able to attend. I would recommend a WhatsApp phone number in the future.

H Danielello, this is a good point to take into account, when you visit another country, it is always good to leave with time to understand how the place works with everything, transportation services, addresses, we give the written address, also the photos and the google maps photo, but if they don't leave with time to understand, it is very normal that when you arrive very late to the meeting you feel lost, that's why we recommend leaving earlier to understand a little how that culture and life works normal. Thank you

Gladys was an amazing tour guide! She managed the small group with ease and walked us around to see some of the key sites in San Jose, including a market. Ended with an absolutely delicious dinner. We loved it so much that we ended up going back to that same restaurant two more times before the end of our trip!
