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.

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

We have been in Costa Rica for over a month. We contacted Walter, via email, prior to our arrival. He immediately responded, and had his driver pick us up at our hotel in San Jose, and take us to our rented casita in Atenas. The driver, Luis, was fifteen minutes early, and was very friendly and courteous, in addition to... More
