Great driver, fun river rafting

Odyssey Tours is a family run business under the ,management of Alvaro. Maria and I contacted Alvaro while we were in Australia. He replied to our queries immediately and offered us a 6 in 1 Puntarenas Highlights. We were met by our guide, the lovely and knowledgeable Kari Nelson. She works free lance and I believe that Odyssey is very... More

We used Odyssey for two airport transfers and two day trips over the course of a week, and everything was great. Everyone we met was professional and friendly at the same time, and Exon is a great tour guide with a vast amount of knowledge.

We booked Odyssey tours the day before our ship arrived at Costa Rica. We told them we wanted to see the rainforest and a coffee plantation and any other things they recommended. They quoted me a price of $260 total for 4 people. We were met at the pier as promised. Our tour guide was Roberto and driver was Mr.... More

Our guide, Exon picked us up at our hotel right on schedule. He greeted us with a lovely smile, and we knew we were off for a great day of exploration! Our destination, San Manuel Antonio, National Park consisted of an hour and a half journey. He had just the right amount of information along the way, pointing out highlights... More

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...
