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.

Price was fair, Carlos was very prepared and informative on the 90min ride to Palo Verde Boat trip exceeded expectations. He knew the right captain to pick and, we ended up getting to see the monkeys up close... More

Carlos picked up our group of 6 along with 2 others and ensured a day at Buena Vista that was not to be forgotten. Horseback riding, Steam Bath, Mud, Hot Springs, Water Slide, Lunch and Ziplining ... wow, what an adventure! Very informative, well... More

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

I booked a sunset cruise from the Riu Palace a few months in advanced for our trip at the end of Dec 2014. Five passengers and two crew - Marco and Marco Jr. The trip was incredible! Down payment for the adventure was easy. Just $50 to secure the private boat trip. I gave them my google voice number and... More
