We ordered the transportation service from Odissey tour for 2 days in Liberia-Arenal area in April 2015 and we were very satisfied. Our driver Denice was very professional and friendly. Even though he sparked very little English he was trying to entertain us along the way, showing us the interesting local sights, animals and birds, it was so much fun!... More

These guys tick so many boxes, you wouldn’t believe! The big fear among cruise passengers is the risk of missing the sailing schedule and the expense of having to intercept the ship at the next stop. But Odyssey allows plenty of time - that just doesn’t happen. Next – you worry about booking a private excursion from half the world... More

Reserved a tour with them thru Internet. Our ship had a one day stop in Puntarenas and we wanted to see the crater of the Poas volcano. We were 8 persons and we had a comfortable mini-van able to sit 12 persons. We had a guide and a driver and they took us to different places including to the volcano.... More

Booked the tour privately (learned not to book tours through a cruise ship because they're hugely overpriced & I doubt the tour company gets any of that extra income). We had Exon as our guide (gorgeous guy) and Andreas as our lovely driver. English was excellent. The monkeys thing was ok except there's 1476 tour buses also stopped to look... More

We booked through cruise critic and joined a group tour doing the 6 on 1 tour. Basically what we learned was the guides this company have are all teenagers working and studying, not that its a bad thing but for example, our guide was not certified nor spoke enough English to hold a conversation and share information about the country...

We were met on time. Our first stop was alongside the road to see some monkeys. We did see a couple in the distance but it certainly wasn't a rain forest. We then went to see the macaws and toucans. I didn't know what was going on as our Guide, without communicating got out of the vehicle and went for... More

We booked three tours with Odyssey tours via Internet : l'Arenal volcano, Monteverde Cloud forest and Manuel Antonio Park. Ronny and Exon were our guides and Alvaro was our driver. They were amazing and really friendly. They were very knowledgeable and never hesitated to stop along the way to show us all kinds of wildlife. At Manuel Antonio Park, Exon... More

Our Odyssey tour of Puntarenas on 2-12-15 with tour guide Exon and driver Alvaro was....epic! We thoroughly enjoyed all the stops to see the white faced and howler monkeys, crocodiles, scarlet macaws, tayras, various lizzards, ants etc. etc. It was enjoyable to travel to their habitats. Exon had a wonderful telescope that permitted us close ups and photos of the... More

I booked 2 transfers with Alvaro, and he was super easy to deal with. The driver was waiting for us at the airport in Liberia, and the van was clean and cool. The driver was friendly and pointed out several photo opportunities and gave us plenty of information about the area. We needed to make a change for our second... More
