  1. Trip of a lifetime!

    I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Costa Rica. Our guide and driver were knowledgeable and attentive to the needs of our group. The tours and accommodations surpassed my expectations. The food was especially wonderful in flavor and variety. I would definitely sign up for another tour. The entire experience was beyond any traveling I'd done previously. The detail and breadth of activities make me feel as if I have learned a great deal about Costa Rica and it's culture.

  2. Totally changed my life!

    This was my first EF tour and as like many, I did not know what to expect. I was blown away. I was introduced to so many people and to this day I still am in contact with. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and encouraged questions. This was a great experience and I am now enrolled into another EF tour to continue my knowledge on different cultures and view different parts of the world.

  3. The Great Outdoors Redefined

    We had a biologist for a tour guide as we journeyed throughout Costa Rica. She was very informative and taught us about so many aspects of Costa Rica's nature as well as the culture of the people. We participated in zip lining, farm sustainability tours, snorkeling, horseback riding, a wildlife boat tour, a hike to a waterfall, a visit to a national park with volcanos, and a coffee plantation tour. Students came back with much more appreciation for nature and more willing hearts for conservation and recycling. My favorite part was a cultural exchange where we met a high school dance group and learned their dances. We also taught them some of our favorite dances. Working with EF was awesome, and I will definitely travel with them again.

  4. 12/10 Would do again!

    The Costa Rica tour was amazing! We did so many things to challenge and excite the students and push them to try and do new things. We saw volcanoes, went zip lining through the jungle, went horseback riding, danced with Costa Rican students, swam in the ocean, swam at the base of a beautiful waterfall, ate delicious food, saw a monkey war, drove though the beautiful cloud forest...

    Our tour guide and bus driver were amazing! They were funny, and inspiring, and informational. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. I want to go back!

  5. Best experience of my life!!

    My trip to Costa Rica was so much fun! We did so many amazing activities and our tour guide made sure that we got the most out of each one. He knew and taught us so much about Costa Rica and was very proud that he grew up there. Also, he and the bus driver were very fun together! We did so many fun things such as zip lining, snorkeling, horseback riding, touring a coffee plantation, white water rafting, and many more! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone and can't wait to go back in the future! Pura Vida!

  6. Fabulous Experience

    This was an amazing trip! I had a blast! From learning how to make soap on an ecological farm to learning how chocolate & coffee are made to a wildlife refuge! From ziplining to whitewater rafting to hiking to a waterfall to seeing volcanoe! Our tour guide was absolutely fabulous! He was very knowledgeable, informative, and fun! He interacted with us during the activities. We were blessed too have him. Even our bus driver was awesome! The skills he had to drive and park that huge bus in some tiny spaces were unbelievable! I can't wait to go back! PURA VIDA!

  7. Awesome trip!

    We were a small high school group traveling to Costa Rica, and it was an awesome trip. The kids had a great time! Our tour director had an amazing attitude and contagious enthusiasm for this beautiful country. Between the zip-lining, white water rafting, snorkeling and boat trip down the Rio is hard to pinpoint a favorite activity. Thank you EF Tours for a smooth and enjoyable experience!

  8. Costa Rica Wonder

    This trip was amazing! The guide seemed to know everything about his country. The days were packed with adventure from sun up to sundown. I hope this was the first of many trips to come.

  9. Definitely go if you get the chance

    Overall I had an excellent time. The food was good and the local guides had lots of knowledge.Some interesting things you do are make soap, milk a cow, zip line, snorkel, go to a waterfall, take a wildlife tour on a boat, go to a chocolate plantation*, go to a coffee plantation, go to thermal springs, and watch students do traditional dances. Over all I had an amazing trip. My only criticism is that we were on the bus too much. Would recommend bringing a book for rides

  10. Awesome Experience

    From our guide, to the places we stayed, the adventures we took and finishing with the captain of the bus. The overall experience for myself and my daughter was amazing.
