The nurse was very professional and came late at night to our hotel due to our flight plans the next day. Would recommend this service to anyone who needs the test.

This tour was fabulous and exactly as described. We saw the cloud forest, a butterfly preserve, a hummingbird sanctuary, rode a cable car and hiked to a waterfall, did a zipline and toured a cocoa factory with fabulous chocolate treats. Well worth the price and guide was wonderful.

Definitely overpriced as we paid $185 and tour was only 4 hours with no lunch included. We didn't go to any rice fields or banana plantations as described, but did see howler monkeys in a preserve and many pretty birds on a boat ride. Would have given tour 5 stars if we paid only $75 for half day tour, but when paying $185 we expected a full day tour with lunch and much more included. Our driver spoke English, but the tour guide who took us to the monkey preserve and on our boat didn't speak any English so we didn't get much explanation of what we were seeing. Very disappointing tour as overpriced and guide didn't speak English! I don't recommend this tour!

Excellent service for our covid test for our return to U.S.A. They came right to our hotel rooms and written test results were given to us that same night.
