“The guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and detailed in the presentation of the tour. From Arenal to Manuel Antonio Park the journey was fantastic. We really enjoy this week in Costa Rica with Greenway Tours. They were always taking care of my family and the hotels and services first quality. We want to return to Costa Rica with this travel company.”

“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.”

“Exceeded our expectations, well-structured and narrated. Alberto was an enthusiastic guide and pointed out a lot of wildlife that our untrained eyes would have missed. The top-notch company never made us feel rushed and was very patient with questions. Would not hesitate to book with them again! We really enjoyed this week in Costa Rica with Greenway Tours.”
