One of our strengths as a tour operator in Costa Rica and itinerary consultant for individuals is the great experience and knowledge of the country that the staff and in particular Enrique Balsevicius, the General Manager of Saint Germain Tours, has. Enrique studied for 3 years in the Steigenberger Hotel management school in Germany ( Steigenberger Hotelberufsfachschule ) from which he graduated in 1983. Returning to Costa Rica he started to work as a professional tour guide for many of the better tour operators. Working with tourists of many different nationalities for over 14 years has produced a wealth of knowledge within the tourist industry of Costa Rica. Guiding throughout the country with emphasis in naturalism has led to respect from those customers whose needs, wishes, and points of view were all dealt with in a humorous but professional manner.After having worked as a free-lance for many tour operators and wholesalers, and knowing the routes and modus operandi of those companies, Enrique decided to become an independent tour operator. The purpose being to provide the very best professional service and the very best personal service. In this way he could offer a flexible and honest company attitude producing a product at a fair price with very careful attention to the clients wishes and needs. His goal is to fulfill the expectations of tourists and to give them a warm caring treatment that is sadly missing in large travel and tourist companies. Because of these circumstances he founded together with his wife Julia the tour operating company Saint Germain Tours, that offers a personalised tailor made service. We invite you and your guests to Costa Rica so we can give you the welcome, service and care that you desire and deserve!
