    We’ve travelled far and wide over this planet but the trip with National Geographic/G Adventures to Costa Rica was among our top three journeys. Thanks to TourRadar for booking it all for us. We were the only ones on our tour who had everything... Show more

    the 14 days were exciting, adventuresome and at times challenging. The best tour guide ever and a great group of people to share this wonderful experience.

    several of the hotels were quite shabby, ill -equipped and poorly located. The "CEO" did not provide adequate advance information about what to expect in each place and was, on occasion, a bit snarky. Too much emphasis was placed on add-on activities... Show more

    We had a diverse group of people of 16 from Canada, US and UK. Ages ranged from 40s to 70s. Our "CEO", Jeff Young, did an excellent job identifying each of our skills and interests. He made recommendations along the way and was always engaging.... Show more

    It's not so good itinerary as it looks at first. First and last days are nothing. Day before last day is totally wasted because of middle-day transportation in San Jose. I would make stops in La Fortuna, Monte Verde and Manuel Antonio one night shorter... Show more
