There were Fred quite a few from our cruise that they had to have two buses for this tour. Arbus held 30 people that there was fifteen of us on the bus. We did everything that was included in the description. The place where we had lunch was really beautiful with scarlet macaws in the trees up above us. I would definitely recommend this, the groups are so much smaller than what you book from the cruise ship.

Puntarenas - Thumbs Up Tour is Wonderful
Bear
, Mar 2020
We had a group of 12 arriving by cruise ship to Puntarenas. I read about Thumbs Up Tours online at Trip Advisor. It seemed to cover more sites than just one or two of a cruise ship tour. It turned out to be the best excursion we had! Our tour guide “Jack” was awesome and so much fun. Not only did we see local homes & areas. We saw the rainforest, monkeys, parrots, took a boat ride & saw crocodiles & so many different species of birds. We went up a mountain for a wonderful lunch with a magnificent view watching colorful parrots flying by. It was a perfect sunny day. Everyone in my group kept thanking me for finding this tour. Don’t hesitate to book this one!

I give 5 stars for this excursion with Thumbs Up Tour (TUT) TUT arrived on time to pick us up in a air conditioning van. The guide Jac was excellent, funny and spoke in English. We were brought to a lot of places (whistle to attract monkeys in the jungle, stop at a fresh fruit store along the way, boat trip to see crocodiles and birds, had lunch at a restaurant on top of a mountain- what a view - and after stop at a souvenir store. Finish with a tour of the city. Highly recommend TUT!!!

It’s a well-worth-it trip to take the Puntarenas sightseeing tour. Had the chance to see quite a few wild lives, beautiful birds, huge crocodile... Lunch was great! The restaurant was located on top of the hill with panoramic view of the coast line. Beautiful place!

Great experiance seeing everything Costa Rica has to offer. Well looked after. The food and views from the restuarant was worth the cost of the trip alone. Very informative guide on the river who pointed out all the hard to spot birds.

Best tour on our Panama Canal cruise. Was a wonderful day that included bird and croc watch on a boat and a wonderful lunch high on a mountain side, as well as several other stops. Highly recommend.

Our guide, Allie, met us right off the pier. We loaded up all 13 of us and started out tour. We had an amazing sighting of the Capuchin monkeys - literally right in front of us! Unfortunately some tourists from another group decided to ignore the 'DO NOT FEED' requests, and had monkeys climbing on them! This is bad for the monkeys.....Anyway, off to our boat tour. I will state that we had to wait almost 40 minutes for the second group riding with us in the boat, but apologies were made. And our tour did not disappoint! Lots of crocs and wildlife. Our boat captain could see everything, everywhere, and they did NOT skimp on time, despite the long wait. After this we had a wonderful lunch from high above the entire valley and could see for miles. We also saw a Scarlet Macaw, after much searching, and also, well worth the search. The tour ended with a drive through the city of Puntarenas, something my husband and I declined to do because his leg was hurting. We had ample time to shop right off the pier in the market. This was a wonderful trip! Allie was an EXCELLENT guide and was fun, easy going, but certainly knew her local history and that of the surrounding countries. She made the trip wonderful!!

My husband and I found out at the pier that we got ourselves a private tour on Christmas Day. We had a great experience in Puntarenas, thanks to our tour guide who is knowledgeable and professional. The restaurant location is amazing.
