We did zip lining (congo trail) plus coco beach and a snorkeling tour with Issys. Communicating via email with Chris was very easy to get all of our questions answered. Congo trail was average. Coco Beach wasn't as great as we thought it would be. But the driver was very accommodating. The snorkeling tour on the Striker with Marco and... More

We did the Borinquen Tour during the last April and it was fabulous! We did zip lining, tarzan swing, ATV´s, horseback riding, volcanic mud baths and hot springs. Our tour guide, Carlos took care of everything we wanted to do. He definitely went out of his way to make sure we got to see and do everything we imagined. You... More

My wife and I just returned from Costa Rica and I must say that the best part of our trip was our time spent with Issys tours. We had a private tour with Carlos on the Borinquen tour and it couldn't have been any better. He was awesome!! Issys tours is the only company we'll ever use on our return... More

We had never been to Costa Rica before this trip and we wanted to enjoy it all. During my research phase we realize that it was very hard to get reliable information or even contact tour companies by phone/email, except for Issys Tours. The manager Chris answered every question I had and was very informative and professional. We ended up... More

I initially only booked airport transfer with Issy Tours. The booking process was really easy. They answered all my questions and confirmed our pickup a few days prior to our arrival. Myself, husband and the other couple we were traveling with decided on our way to the Resort to also book our excursions. I'm so glad that we did. Our... More

Carlos was our guide for both the Ricon Volcano zipline tour, and the next day Palo Verde. He was great to meet all our desires and needs. We were traveling with 8 adults, including a very pregnant mom (8 months along) as well as two 1 year olds. Carlos and the Issy's tour team made sure that our young mother... More

After reading many reviews on Trip Advisor, I contacted Chris and we were pleased with every interaction. His suggestions and fast responses to my inquiries put us at ease every step of the way.

Issys's Tours was a great company to book your excursions through. My boyfriend and I heard about them from one of our friends and we figured we would give them a shot. We ended up booking the Canyoning Adventure tour, the National Park tour and we booked our airport transfers as well. We booked everything through email talking to Chris.... More
