Georgina Keefe. October 2010
I'm sure you don't remember me but we met a couple of times when I was working for Kuoni. I have recently returned from an escorted tour holiday to Costa Rica which I booked through Archers in the UK, with yourselves providing the ground services and just wanted to write and let you know how fantastic the experience was.
The itinerary was well thought out and, while visiting the major highlights, also minimised the time spent on the coach. The hotels were of good quality, and while some could have been more centrally located I guess it is not always possible to fulfill both criteria. Staying two nights in each location allowed more time to relax as the tour itself was fairly packed.
I would like to draw special attention to the efforts of tour guide Diego Velasquez who accompanied us throughout the tour and also our driver Will. Both were complete professionals throughout, being on hand to provide any assistance needed and answer a constant stream of questions as well as being able to spot wildlife which to me seemed invisible to the naked eye!
Diego was the perfect tour guide, combining friendly humour and jokes with attention to detail, professionalism and excellent knowledge - traits that are not always combined in one person!
Will was always on time with the transportation and was ever friendly, funny and helpful even after some long days of driving. There was a great dynamic between the two and this added to the atmosphere and humour of the tour. Once again thanks for a great holiday!
Best regards and enjoy WTM if you're attending!
