Based on a personal recommendation and the reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked this tour for three couples. We had a private van and tour guide--Exon. I think he has received good reviews in the past. We saw so much different wildlife in their natural habitat, it was great. We also had nicely spaced stops for refreshing smoothies, fruit, beverages... More

We traveled to Puntarenas, Costa Rica as part of our cruise from Long Beach to Miami through the Panama Canal aboard the NCL Star. We hooked up with Odyssey at the port due to a problem with Andrew’s Thumbs Up Tours. Odyssey came to our rescue. Our 1st stop was to see the wild white faced Capuchin monkeys which were... More

We have just had a really good experience travelling from Caldera cruise terminal to San Jose with a transfer from Odysses. We added a river cruise and lunch to the package and it's been our best day trip in Central America so far. We were promptly picked up and on our way in no time. First stop was to a... More

We contracted Odyssey to transfer us from Port Caladera to Santo Domingo, also for a tour to Lapaz Waterfall Gardens. We enjoyed a great day with guide Juan and driver Roarner "Mr.R". Since we don't speak Spanish we especially enjoyed their fluent English. Lapaz nature park and wildlife refuge was great, well worth the $35? admission. We stopped for a... More

Departed cruise ship with little in mind, however as we arrived on Sunday nothing much was open or operating. After a stroll around Puntarenas town, we came across Al of Odyssey tours who readily agreed to give us a short tour for an excellent price. Experience tells us not to book this type of excursion through the ships tour desk.... More

Our family of 4 visited Costa Rica this past July. We opted for private transportation with Odyssey Tours, and were to be transported in roomy new Mercedes van. Alvaro provided great communication prior to the trip, and didn't even ask for a deposit. He promised to drive us on very leg personally (we asked for him specifically), and we arranged... More

We booked with Odyssey for two separate day tours. The first day was white water rafting, volcano,and hot springs. The driver and guide were wonderful they went out of their show us the local wildlife and the indigenous culture. The second day was zip lines and hanging bridges. Their hospitality is beyond reproach. I highly recommend using Odyssey Day Tours.

We had a group of 10 reserved for a tour with Odyssey from Puerto Cardera. We were among the first off the ship to meet our reserved tour with Odyssey tours. Let me get the negative out of the way first – stepping off the ship the smell was horrible. Once you were 100 feet from the dock, it was... More

This is our second time in Costa Rica with Odyssey Tours. Good friendly service, good English, fair prices - they aim to please and take care of your needs. Being with Diego and his dad was like coming home. Will use them again.
