We did a day long your with Tico and had a great time. We were picked up from out house in Playa del Coco and taken to a remote spot with a zip line, horseback riding, water slide, mud bath, and hot mineral springs. It was a great family outing and everyone in our group had a great time. He... More

As the title says, the best two days of our visit to Costa Rica were spent with Bernal from Tico Tours. Bernal was our personal driver and tour guide on these tours. We visited the Vandara Hot Springs and Adventure the one day. Vandara is located near Rincon de la Vieja Volcano in Guanacaste. There we ziplined for the first... More

If you want personal and professional service while staying in Costa Rica, then Tico Tours is the way to go. A group of us recently traveled to Guanacaste for a girls' trip and used Tico Tours for our airport transfers and the All Day Tour (horseback, ziplining, mud bath, thermal pool, and omg, that LUNCH!). Marco was an excellent tour... More

We booked Tico Tours for a day trip to Nicaragua from Tamarindo. Bernal and Lilliana were very patient and efficient throughout the booking process. The transport arrived on time to pick us up at our villa in Tamarindo. The driver, Luis, and our tour guide, Erick were awesome throughout the entire trip. Tico Tours had arranged everything we needed to... More

After reading countless 5-star reviews on TA, my boyfriend & I decided to go with Tico Tours Guanacaste for an upcoming vacation. Months before arriving in Costa Rica, I contacted Lilliana for tour info/prices. I think I asked her about 50 questions, but she was always friendly & quick to respond. We ended up choosing 2 tours; the booking process... More

Used these guys for both ways of airport transfer to the Andaz. Drivers showed up on time, with the requested equipment (car/booster seats). They were very professional, the vans were clean, and the drives were smooth. Dealing with Bernal and Lilliana via email was easy.

My family and I just completed our trip and we are still in awe of the amazing time we had. After much research and talking to a few companies prior to arriving in Guanacaste we planned all of our excursions and airport transportation with Tico Tours. The moment we walked out of the airport there stood a smiling face with... More

This morning Marco was at our Pacifico condo 5 minutes before the planned pick up time of 7:30am. The tour van was clean and like new with comfortable seats. There were 7 of us on the tour and all had a great time. We arrived at the Wetlands base and were treated to tamarind juice, Ice tea, coffee, watermelon and... More
