I loved our tour and especially our guide and driver. They were both VERY personable and made sure that we had a great time. Going out of their way to provide additional experiences for the kids.

This was my first tour and I loved it! The tour guide was amazing, friendly and very knowledgeable. I learned so much on this trip and had fun while doing it. I would definitely do it again.

More travel like this!
Timing, communication, safety, quality of activities, scheduling, food, hotels, bus, direct flight, chaperones, EF Tour Director and our High School's Tour Organizer...all of these things were incredible - nothing but high quality.

Best trip ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I extremely enjoyed this trip, especially the tour guide and bus driver. I feel like their presence enhanced the excitement throughout our journey of Costa Rica. I learned so much about their environment and culture. I've even repeatedly said since we came back that I would like to move there when I grow up.

this was my gift to my son for his high school graduation. It took me a full year to pay for it and it was a terrible experience for my son and his tour group. The hotel accommodations were horrendous to the point that they had to move hotels because of the conditions. Everyone was unhappy and if it wasn't for the teachers on the trip trying their best to guide the students and find the positive from a terrible experience.

This trip was amazing. From the food, to the excursions, to the lodgings, our driver, and especially our Tour Director, I could not be more pleased. Our TD is so incredibly knowledgeable about his country whether it be the flora and fauna or the government/health care/education or the history of Costa Rica--he could explain and answer any questions the students came up with. Seeing Costa Rica for the first time with such an outstanding guide will be with my travelers and myself for a very long time!

Sunny days in Costa Rica
I didn't like that I had to pay an extra $70 dollars that I originally didn't bring with me in order to go on extra excursions. I wish that I would have known that Costa Rican ATM's only accept cards with security chips and it was because of this oversight, that I wasn't able to get extra money out of my account on this trip.

Beautiful Costa Rica!
Our scholars learned so much about Costa Rican culture and nature from our incredible tour guide. The highlights were ziplining, horse back riding, visiting a local school, and seeing wildlife. The biggest downside to the trip was that we spent 3 full days traveling from location to location which put a damper on some of the students' enthusiasm.

The trip to Costa Rica was fantastic. It was well rounded with many activities and the ability to interact with the locals. We learned so much about their environment, food, music and lifestyle. We met great local guides and our tour guide went above and beyond to make our trip a memorable one. Pura Vida!! Highly recommended..
