My family and I did the all day adventure tour and the sunset sailing tour. We had a blast! Tours were well organized and our guides were AMAZING!. We had Marco for the all day tour and Hector and Jose for the sail. They made everything easy and so enjoyable, even with 2 young kids. The food on the sailing... More

We booked the white water rafting on the Tenorio river and ziplining at Borenquin! Both of these experiences were guided by an amazing guide Hansel!! He was extremely knowledgable about the environment around us during our tours. Any questions we asked about plants or animals were answered completely. On our white water rafting trip we were picked up from our... More

Excellent communications with Bernal to set up the trip. They picked us up at our Villa, right on time as promised. The trip from Playa hermosa was about 1 hour and 45 minutes. The rafting was great, lots of class 2 and 3 with a couple of class 4 drops. The 12 foot class 4 near the end threw me... More

My boyfriend and I were referred to Tico Tours by a work colleague and they didn't disappoint! While I did not receive timely responses to my first inquiry from the US, before we made it down to Costa Rica, when I called and emailed from the resort they were definitely timely. We spoke to the owner - Bernal - several... More

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
