Our guide was Carlos who was excellent, knowledgeable, and reliable. They don't put you in a large group with others; they prefer small groups. We had just us three plus guide. Had reliable vehicles and excellent service.

Our flight arrived a little early so when we came out of the airport, we didn't see our driver. I called the contact number on our... More

They were on time and very welcoming. They had water and beer available for the trip. They were about half the price of other agencies I contacted. They... More

We did a full day tour with Issy, zip lining, horse back riding and rubber ring white water. The vehicle was immaculate, the driver (Costos) punctual, polite, informative and help full. Could not ask for more.

Our trip to Costa Rica was one amazing day after another. To begin with, Chris put together a custom excursion for us. I had contacted 2 other companies and he was the only one that would work with me. One of my sons is having back problems and we did not know if he would be able to ride horses.... More

Peter picked us up at the Liberia airport and gave us a great ride to the Hotel Riu in Guanacaste. He was very informative on the way and gave us great information about the country on the way, even stopping when he saw some monkeys and let us out to go view them. Nice to have someone like that when... More

We took 2 tours with Issys during our stay in late Dec 2015 - early Jan 2016. Borenquin was incredible, with a beautiful setting, great zip lining, fun ATV touring, really nice lunch, and fun mud baths/hot springs. A long but fabulous day!

We used Issys for round trip transportation from Liberia airport to Andaz Papagayo and for the Palo Verde tour. I contacted about 10 travel companies in the Guarnacoste TripAdvisor listings and asked for quotes. I chose Issys since they had the highest tripadvisor rating and were within $100 of the lowest quote. Our flights were delayed and I ended on... More
