I selected Costa Rica after reviewing many different tour companies on Trip Advisor. This was our first time in Costa Rica so I really had no prior knowledge, which was a bit scary. The part that truly one my vote of confidence was dealing with Chris. He responded within minutes of the multiple questions I had, and ultimately won our... More

I would very much like to thank Issys tours for their hospitality in Costa Rica! Most especially a very heartfelt thanks goes out to Luis, Marco Sr., and Marco Jr. They were very friendly and accommodating. The only drawback was the company only takes cash. We were just not prepared for that.

We had an amazing and very fun day with Issys Tours - specifically with Luis as our private guide in Guanacasta. We went zip lining, horseback riding, and visited the thermal baths. Luis was fun from the moment he picked us up to the moment he dropped us off and made sure we had a lovely time the whole way!... More
