My wife and I have made several visits to Costa Rica, and, in our slightly younger days, taken a number of active adventure trips, zip lining, repelling, riding horses up the side of volcanoes. We highly recommend these trips for people of all ages, but, in this case, we were just looking for a less taxing experience, yet still packed... More

We used Tico Tours for our All-Day Adventure and to arrange snorkeling/sunset cruise. I always feel hesitant sending my credit card info ahead of time to reserve a tour when traveling internationally but I took the chance and it worked out! Bernal and Marco are very professional and enjoyable to tour with. The activities met or exceeded our expectations and... More

We spent the beginning of our trip in Guanacosta/Coco beach area and used Tico Tours for this area. Their drivers are friendly and knowledgeable. We didn't book specific tours, but used them for their private transfers. They are priced reasonable. The vans are comfortable and safe. We used them to get to Tamarindo from Liberia, and they also were able... More

We took the whitewater rafting and zip-lining tours with Tico tours. Everyone did a nice job, the guides, the driver and the food were all terrific. We all had a good time. What impressed me was that I left my bathing suit at the restaurant and Bernal got it back to the house we were renting the very next day.... More

We used Tico Tours to book all of our tours. Lilliana and Bernal, the owners, were fantastic. We did the Adventure Canopy tour. Luis was our driver and Juan Carlos was our tour guide. Juan Carlos is fantastic. He is very knowledgeable on the wildlife, geography, history, etc. He made the tour! The zip lines were awesome. We had 9... More

Our family of 8 adults went to CR for Thanksgiving 2014. While others mentioned needing a car in CR, I believe this is a personal choice. We decided on using Tico Tours for all of our daily transportation. 12 passenger coach, they knew where to go, no drinking and driving concerns, kept us all together - which was our goal.... More

Our family of 4 booked the All Day Adventure Tour that included horseback riding, zip lining and natural spa. We were picked up from our hotel in a comfortable, clean van. Luis was our driver and Juan Carlos our friendly knowledgeable tour guide. We picked up one other couple from a nearby hotel. So nice to have a small private... More

Definitely a highly recommend. We booked them for transportation to and from the airport plus four different tours. The vans were clean and comfortable and from the very start (including the ride from the airport to our rental property in Playa Hermosa) the cooler was fully stocked with a variety of libations. The zip lining tour was the best and... More

Variety of sights to be seen...scenery was amazing, customs on the way in was seamless, trip to the volcano was awesome, Granada was beautiful and the speedboat / monkey tour was more than we had imagined. Long day but definitely one of the highlights of our trip to CR. thanks to Louis for taking such good care of us.

We spent two days with Juan Carlos and Louis enjoying the River boat tour and the Buena Vista all day Adventure. The van was on time, clean and comfortable and our guide was the best, very knowledgeable and friendly. We would definitely recommend these guys. We plan on using them again the next time we visit.
