I am so thankful Elisha was with us, she was incredibly kind, empathetic and understanding with all of us, taking all of our needs into consideration. She was also really great making sure everyone had a great time on during the various active activities we did - zip lining..."

    I'd like to read the rest of Julie Hudson's review...I'd want to know why she was unhappy.
    Bamboo commented on this review
    You can read it in its entirety. Unfortunately, Julie is upset because we had to cancel the tour she wanted to join. Every tour has minimum number of people it much achieve for it to become viable. That tour didn't reach the minimum number. It's incredibly unfortunate. We've only ever cancelled two tours, that being one of them. So her 'review' of the tour, much like yours, isn't a review of the tour. The Discover Costa Rica tour is an incredible tour. Not sure why you had to leave a 1 star review......

    I just completed the Jan 20 Discover Costa Rica tour lead by Elisha Petrie and I had an amazing time. Elisha was a fun and jolly person and managed quite well the varying demands of people in the group. The tour also included a number of wonderful surprises like visit to hummingbird garden, forest with monkeys, river with crocs. Elisha was supported by her wonderful team Sofi, Issa, and Yana who were all friendly and assisted with any individual concerns. Another great tour❤️❤️❤️

    I wish I could write a positive review, but I want others to be aware! I was scheduled to go on the "Discover Costa Rica" 2 week tour beginning 1/6/18. I have been planning for this trip since August, 2017. I paid the balance in full on 11/5/17 and had to book my airfare and pay for a background check, per their policy. On 11/23/17 I received an email stating my trip was cancelled due to low enrollment. Back in August I received notifications that I should reserve soon because there were only a few spots left! Now I'm left with no tour and 2 weeks alone in Costa Rica should I choose to continue my trip. Bamboo did refund my money, but nothing else was done for me.
    Bamboo commented on this review
    Hey Julie. As per our contact with you when this happened, our sincerest apologies again for this. It's hugely unfortunate when a tour is cancelled, in fact over the years we've cancelled two with this being one. It's extremely rare for a tour date not to have achieve the minimum number required in order for a tour to be financially viable. You were offered alternatives and, as you state, did receive a full refund. Not really sure what else we could have done. The offer is still there to switch to an alternative date and if you'd like to discuss anything please feel free to contact the boss; steve@wearebamboo.com. Apologies again.

I am so thankful Elisha was with us, she was incredibly kind, empathetic and understanding with all of us, taking all of our needs into consideration. She was also really great making sure everyone had a great time on during the various active activities we did - zip lining, patrolling the beach for turtle eggs, and hiking, just to name a few. Elisha made sure that everyone had a great experience and I am very happy she was out tour guide!

    I was with Elisha on the inaugural Costa Rica tour. Elisha was fantastic. She made it so much fun and handled the bumps with grace. She is so funny, kind and a joy to be around and to know.

    I have been on two Y@H Bamboo Tours with Elisha and you will not find a more knowledgable, friendly and approachable guide. Her enthusiasm for her work and for the welfare of our Planet in general is infectious. I look forward to seeing her again one day - Elisha can light up anyone's day just by being in the same room. Good luck
