Chris and Carlos are the best guides around. They can provide transportation as well as personalized tours. I would recommend them highly. Trustworthy and very knowledgeable. We have used them for two trips to Costa Rica. We took a hotel tour once and wished we had used Issys instead. For the same price, you can get a small group tour... More

We used IssysTours a few weeks ago. Our driver Edwin was the best. He was very knowledgeable about all things Tico...The companies prices cannot be beat. We stayed at the Andaz Papagayo, so you can imagine the price quotes to use the driving service Andaz contracts with. Yes, slightly nicer vehicles, but not worth double the price. Moreover, Edwin was... More
