Doka Coffee Tour, Grecia and Sarchi Day Trip from San Jose
Reviewed by: LYNN B, January 2016
We were promptly picked up at our hotel on the day of the tour and back again around dinner time. The local guide was very knowledgeable about the coffee plantation and its operation as well as the church at Grecia and the the ox cart and historic site and shop at Sarchi. He answered everyone's questions, gave details on the various trees, plants, sites and life of the people in the area as we drove to each of the places on the tour. The van was air conditioned and clean. We had a very good day with the guide and others on the tour a great lunch was provided at the coffee plantation as well. Would recommend the tour to others. You can add the volcano tour for the early morning as well and the others seemed to have enjoyed that part too.
I was worried about having to call Viator 24 hrs prior to the tour as we didn't have cell service in Costa Rica but we received an email a few days before we left to reconfirm our arrival which seemed to take care of things by responding to it which was easier for me.

We had a wonderful time on this tour. Jose and Guillermo were amazing. So very nice and helpful. The stops were perfect and not drawn out. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Did not expect it to be this interesting or educational. LOVED IT. The coffee tour was interesting and Grecia is a beautiful town (we even saw a wedding at the church). Sarchi was an eye opener. A water powered business, talented artists. I intend to come back and purchase the furniture for my new house in a couple of years. The guide was very informative. THANK YOU!

Guide was very informative about coffee. I felt that we had ample time to ask questions and explore Grecia and Sarchi.

The tour was informative and interesting. When we took the tour, we were picked up after the others in the group had taken the Poas Volcano tour so we felt like we had missed some of the history that might have been covered before joining. I would definitely recommend booking the tour that includes the Poas Volcano along with the Doka Coffe, Grecia and Sarchi portion of the tour instead. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and we learned a lot. Pick up service from our downtown San Jose hotel and return was prompt and professional.
