Wonderful! We really got an awesome taste of Costa Rica. Loved every place they picked out for us. We love animals, hiking, waterfalls, and beach time. We got to do/see all of that. Thanks again!

Our 3-generation family of 5 ranging in age from 8-80, spent 8 full days enjoying the itinerary developed along with Daniel Calderon, who could not have been more patient, and executed with Luis "Diego" Soto who was the tour guide/driver par excellence. When things were not quite to our liking, Diego stepped in and made it all better. We had viewings and experiences that we could never have had without Diego's expertise. And to say he became one of the family, suffice it to say that my 8-year old grandson cried when we had to say good-bye at the end of the trip (I think Diego teared up some too!!). This was the trip I had hoped it to be and would definitely return with Il Viaggio (and Diego) and highly recommend them to others.

We loved Costa Rica. Our guide, Juve, was wonderful. My husband uses an electric wheelchair for distance and can use crutches for short walks. All of the tours were planned with this in mind. Juve was very knowledgeable regarding the accessible areas. He also has a great deal of knowledge of the plant and animal life.
