Thank you for making our trip to Costa Rica filled with the kind of memories I had hoped for. We really appreciated that you offered tours that were of interest to our family and were so reliable and friendly in the process. Your guides, particularly Marco, were professional, punctual, polite and personable. We booked six tours which all ran to... More

We used Tico Tours again this year. Bernal came to our vacation rental home to discuss what our group wanted to do, Bernal is very professional and has a great staff. We had Marco and Carlos this year for our beach and river tours.

How often can you say that? We booked a day with Bernal and it was great. He took us to waterfalls, zip-lining, mud baths and a great lunch. The whole time we were driving he would explain things and answer our questions. When we were done seeing one thing he would ask if we were happy and liked it and... More

This was our third trip to Playa Hermosa. Bernal's knowledgable and conscientious service was one reason we fell in love with Guanacoste and the surrounding area to begin with. This time, we brought four retirees who had never been to CR before. Bernal and Lillianna found something for everyone to do. Now all four of them want to come back!... More

This was our first time in CR, and with three children under 12 and a mother in law in a wheelchair, we were very careful about which whom we booked our day trips. We couldn't have been happier with our guides(Juan Carlos and Bernal) and our driver (Luis). They made us feel like we were part of their family and... More

We had an amazing tour with Tico Tours to the Arenal Volcano, hanging bridges, and to an ecological museum. They were extremely friendly, knowledgable, and most important, great people to be around. We highly recommend using Tico Tours for anyone who is interested in exploring the beautiful nature of Costa Rica! They have many tours to offer and we can't... More
