Walter picked us up at our rented house in Atenas at 6:45 for a spectacular full-day tour. We arrived at Aero Caribe Air Charter at 8:00 and boarded our plane. We flew with Walter and Esteban from San Jose to Tambor on the Nicoya Peninsula. We landed in Tambor, and went for a buffet breakfast, before returning to San Jose.... More

Invaluable guide for our Costa Rica experience. We stayed for a week in Atenas and had a number of "adventures" planned. Walter navigated heavy traffic, windy roads, rain, and wind to make our vacation memorable. His knowledge of the attractions, culture, and food was amazing. He took us zip lining in the clouds, to watch jaguars at the gardens, hiking... More

I have taken several long trips with Walter...He is an excellent driver, reliable and speaks English very well. As a solo traveller in a foreign country I rely on people who are professional, know the territory and can provide a comfortable service with well maintained vehicles. Walter fits the bill.

Walter's taxi and tours is the best! Communication with him is easy, and he's very reliable. We've used him for airport trips, long trips from Atenas to Guanacaste. He's worth every penny.

The real deal! Walter and all his crew are top notch. They're reliable, knowledgeable, kind, professional, and just flat out nice. Their prices are very reasonable. Luis is a very safe driver. Miguel and Ali were so kind and helpful. And then there's Walter. He is just a true professional and such a hard worker. We enjoyed all of our... More

I arranged for Walter to meet me at a bus station after bussing to a town I selected from a map--but I forgot to specify a.m. or p.m. and didn't realize that in Costa Rica, military time is used for transportation. When Walter's driver couldn't find me at the bus "station" (i.e., a bench) that morning at 7:15, he drove... More

I'm glad it all worked out Jacqueline. Walter strives on meeting customers' needs and in this case he knew you needed to be safe. I hope you'll come back and visit Costa Rica very soon. Pura Vida More
