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

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

Had a fabulous almost 7 hour tour with Odyssey day tour while ashore from the Statendam this past January. We got to see many thing that the rest of our ship probably missed. Our guide spoke very good English. I would highly recommend this company, must be good if the ship recommends it as well.

It was our first time in Costa Rica flying all the way from Asia and Odyssey Tours left a remarkable impression on us that we will definitely recommend to our friends. Alvaro is very clear and prompt with his emails, he is also able to cater the tours to your liking and is flexible with any last minute changes. We... More
