“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Prior to going to Costa Rica, we booked our tours ahead of time with Chris. We had 2 different arrival days and Luis was our driver for both pick up's. He was very friendly and on-time.
We then booked the mega combo and Carlos was our tour guide. He was terrific and at all times we felt safe and by the end of the day he was part of the family. When it was time to return to the airport, Carlos again was our driver and we just loved him.
I would recommend Issys Tours to anyone going to Costa Rica.

“OMG!!!!!! Please stick with these guys, the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

My friend and I had an awesome time. It doesn't matter which activity you choose, you'll have fun. Ask for Louise. He was fun,entertaining, energetic and most importantly patient with us. He kept us laughing all the time. PLUS he didn't mind taking a thousand pictures of us. I give him A+ We did the ATV, Zipline/mud bath/water slide and Tanmarino beach for some surfing. Sooo kool! He didn't rush us with any of the activities. Also Christian was very quick with emailing us back when we had questions. They want you to enjoy your time in Costa Rica and they we def enjoy our time. Thanks guys!

“It was a great day, it could not have been better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We had the priviledge of having Carlos guide us on our tour of one of the national parks. Ziplining, horseback riding, tubing, and the hot springs where unbeleivable. All the personel invovled were the nicest. (Myself being petrified of heights) and Carlos was most kind, stopping for supplies on the way there and back. We also shared the enjoyment of music on the radio and we laughed and smiled.
PURA VIDA
