Super efficient. Each step of the journey ran smoothly into the next. The boat part was really relaxing with beautiful views! The drivers were great on some really tricky roads and we stopped for a comfort break halfway on the Monteverde side. Overall a great experience with lovely staff and at an incredible price!

We were picked up punctually at the next hotel on our Airbnb and dropped off in the center of Santa Elena, not far from the taxi rank. We used this tour because the travel time by bus / car was too long for us and would do it again. Unfortunately it rained heavily so that we couldn't enjoy the view at all.

Really chaotic but nice trip

The guy who picked us up at our hotel gave us a number and said it's for the boat. When we arrived at the boats, no one could tell us where to go and what to do. Eventually someone told us to get on a boat that was already full so that we had to squeeze in between people. At the arrival, again, no one there to tell us what to do but we just guessed that the bus would not be waiting for us on a beach. We had to carry up our heavy luggage up to the bus (for which the initial number was actually meant). So much for what the description of the transfer was saying: "we will take care of your luggage all the way"... Well, not really. Fortunately the landscapes were amazing and it was nice to have a break to make pictures. It would have been nicer if there had been some explanations along the way of what we were seeing. All in all "Aventure Transfer" is quite a good name.
