“We took this tour with Greenway Tours. They did an amazing job! Professional, took time to make the tours what we wanted then to be. Were looking forward to our next trip to Costa Rica and touring with Greenway. I highly recommend!”
Outstanding and Highly recommended

  • Amanda Lewis
“Exceeded our expectations, well-structured and narrated. Alberto was an enthusiastic guide and pointed out a lot a wildlife that our untrained eyes would have missed. Top notch company, never made us feel rushed and very patient with questions. Would not hesitate to book with them again!”
Memorable and Relaxing Times
5 - Excellent
  • Elizabeth Smith
“Alberto was great! He was friendly, communicative, and provided door to door service. We were in CR celebrating my girlfriend's birthday. I was initially undecided about renting a vehicle. However, I am happy that I did not. The excursions were awesome and Alberto helped take away potential stress. We were able to sit back, relax, and just have fun because he made us feel comfortable and safe. We definitely plan to book with Greenway Tours for future travels to the country.”
