A great experience in general, the guide was very helpful and took good care of us, although I would recommend this only for people that is used to long walks and exercise outdoor. Word of advise, reach out to them by message and let them know where you're staying so the bus can pick you up at your hotel since only allows to choose a pick-up point near downtown in La Fortuna.
