We booked Oscar Brown Tour's Rainforest and River Cruise (with Lunch) package and absolutely loved it. Oscar added a city tour free of charge and was the best host! He has lived in Puerto Limon his whole life and knows everything there is to know about the port and city. Book with Oscar and you won't be disappointed. By the... More

I corresponded with Carol via e-mail quite a bit before booking. She was prompt and helpful in each of her responses. Very glad I booked with her. The tour was with Oscar Brown the owner and Carol's brother. He provided great overview on our way to the attractions. He was great during our rain forest tour. On the way back... More

I booked the #3-2 Aerial tram and Canal tour online with Carol. Booking and all communications were very straightforward and Carol was very good at replying at every stage. There were six of us in our party and we had decided we wanted to be on our own so didn't use cruise critic to get others to join us, however... More

We appreciate that Oscar drove to Puntarenas to provide us with a tour of this area. Our friends had used his services before and enjoyed their tour. He took us to the crocodile man tour, a city tour and a wonderful lunch. I can easily recommend his friendly and kind tours.

My husband and I wanted to go white water rafting while we were in Puerto Limon for a day on a cruise. Oscar Brown tours tried to make this happen for us but we were not able to get a group together. Fair enough, and because of their effort we booked the #3-2 Aerial Tram (Cable car) ride combined with... More

We have used Oscar Brown tours twice now and have been very pleased with them. This time round we got Roger as guide. We just wanted to see real life in Costa Rica and did see that. We went to the market in Limon and tried a water apple, bought spices Roger told us about; went to the cathedral; a... More

We booked this tour on the internet as a private tour from our Panama Canal Cruise. Oscar's sister, Carol was always prompt answering our questions via email. Once our ship docked we had no problem finding Oscar due to his find directions. My wife and I were the only ones on our tour and our guide gave us special attention.... More

Thank you Carol and Oscar for making our two days in Limon so enjoyable. We appreciated being met at the dock and being taken everywhere where we wanted by Oscar and his being flexible with our various activities. We also appreciated his good driving and commentary.
