We had a memorable outing to a coffee plantation, two picturesque waterfalls and Sarapiqui rain-forest boat trip. Mike was very informative and bilingual which was very helpful to us Americans. I especially enjoyed the restaurant which had good food and lots of birds to view in the wild. The passion fruit drink, which Mike recommended was delicious.Mike was very courteous... More

My husband and I hired Mike for two tours -- one before and one after we had a group tour in Costa Rica. For the first day, we had planned to visit Poas and other sites on the Caribbean side of the central mountains, but it was unusually rainy. So Mike suggested we visit the Pacific coast instead, including a... More

Best experience ever in Costa Rica. We booked Mike for the "2 Volcanoes and via 2 Waterfalls Combination Day Tour" and ended up booking him also next day. Mike is extremely knowledgeable, nature oriented and courteous. He was very patient with my brother who LOVES taking pictures. He stops on the road for scenic pictures. Good sense of humor. You...

My mother, cousin, and I had an amazing time with Mike! We started our private tour once Mike picked us up and we rode up difference provinces within Costa Rica on our way to the Poas volcano. During our trip, we made a stop at a quaint coffee plantation where we got a chance to take a closer look at... More

A personal, very knowledgeable, friendly and unhurried, our English speaking guide knew every nook and corner of the area, and brought us to out of the ordinary places that standard tours don't - this was the best tour and best guide we could have asked for, much above our expectations- highly recommend- ask for Mike if available.

We booked three different tours with Mike. He was knowledgeable and courteous. We had a great time exploring the country! Mike went above and beyond to ensure that we got great photo opportunities. He was also flexible and didn't mind adjusting plans when our 7 year old got tired and cranky. We recommend Paradise Tours and would use them again.

I booked a half day personal tour of the Poas Volcano Park/ 2 Waterfalls tour with Mike. I don't think you will find a more knowledgeable tour guide in all of Costa Rica! This man knows his history of the area as well as his way around town. I think the price was very reasonable for a personal tour tailored... More

We had one extra day in San Jose before our cruise began so we looked around for the best way to spend it. After several emails back and forth we were able to organize a private day trip to the Sarapiqui River and Chocolate tour with a very nice lunch. On time and with great enthusiasm, Mike appeared and we... More

Had only one free day in the San Jose area and wanted to make the most of it. We couldn't find a tour company that did the Poas volcano, zip lining, and La Paz Waterfall Gardens, except for Paradise Tours. Mike suggested we pay extra and make it a private tour so we could do what we wanted. It probably... More
