Based upon TripAdvisors positive reviews, we contacted Odyssey Day Tours 3 months prior to our arrival date. We communicated with Alvaro via email giving him our proposed sights to see (San Jose, Rain-forest, Suspended Bridges, etc.) and he was very responsive in designing and pricing our private day tour package for four. We arrived to Puntarenas, Costa Rica on the... More

My fiancé and I went to Manuel Antonio for a destination wedding and were traveling to and from the airport with a large group of guests. Odyssey Tours was fantastic with coordinating the pick up and drop off locations. The bus was comfortable and had wi-fi a few people could tether to. I would recommend you use this shuttle service...

We recently returned from a Panama Canal Cruise on the Legend of the Seas. We booked this tour in Puntarenas after reading very positive reviews on Trip Advisor and Cruise Critic. We were not disappointed. Prior to sailing, my questions were all answered promptly and thoroughly by Alvaro. Our private tour was on a very comfortable air-conditioned bus. This was... More

We used Odyssey tours during out time in Costa Rica (from San Jose to Arenal, Arenal to Guanacaste, and Guanacaste to San Jose). Don Alvaro (the father of Alvaro and Diego who are the main owners) was so flexible and accommodating, we felt like we were getting driven by family. Him and Astrid, who was our guide the first day... More

I priced out renting a car or city to city other private transportation for 4 persons. Prices comparable or actually less. We just used local transportation in Monteverde and Playa Flamingo but needed even very little of that. Ended up about I was only looking for private transportation but Al gave me solicited advise about my itinerary that made the... More

We used Odyssey tours to take us from San Jose Airport to Monteverde, from Monteverde to Playa Conchal, and Playa Conchal to San Jose. They were early to each trip, and brought us to interesting sites along the way. Their travel estimates were acurate and they were extremely accomodating with our travel times. We landed at San Jose at 9pm... More

I booked this tour for a cruise ship stop. I was Very Pleased with my tour with Odyssey. Our guide, Exon, was very fun and full of information. He called the white face monkeys to us just by yelling “monkey”. He spotted Scarlet Macaw’s along the road too. He made sure we were all comfortable and having a fun time.... More

We had used Odyssey the last time we were in Costa Rica so we eagerly contacted them again for our transfers from Alajuela to Santa Elena (Monteverde area) and back. They were on time for both pickups, stopped for lunch, and quickly pulled off the road to point out some howler monkeys. For the 4 of us, it was a... More

We utilized Odyssey for one-way private transfer between San Jose and Arenal. Eddie was our helpful and efficient driver. We stopped for breakfast at a soda on the way. Eddie was kind enough to translate Spanish for us (as ours was quite bad!) The trip was quicker than expected because Eddie knew a great route and got us there quickly.... More
