Costa Rica Reviews

7 Day Essential Costa Rica, July 2019
Visiting Costa Rica was a very memorable experience for us! Our guide, Luis is very knowledgeable & answered all our questions. We learned a lot from him. He is so responsible & cares for each member of the group. The hotels, the bus, the tours & food were all excellent! We met very nice people from different parts of the country too. Will tour with Gate 1 again definitely & will encourage my friends to do the same! Thank you very much for great service Gate 1!
