Great private excursion!

We were on a RCI Panama Canal cruise and decided to book a private land tour instead of one through the cruise line. Boy, are we glad we did! The tour company met us on the end... read more

We were on a RCI Panama Canal cruise and decided to book a private land tour instead of one through the cruise line. Boy, are we glad we did! The tour company met us on the end of the pier right when we die barked in Puntarenas, Costa Rica, and had a van ready for our group of 6 (3... More

These guys were fantastic. I arranged private transfer upon arrival from SJO to Tamarindo. Representatives were waiting at airport for us, we were picked up by Diego in air-conditioned Mercedes large capacity van (5 adults in our party), stopped at a wonderful place for lunch, stopped outside of Tamarindo for groceries, beer and wine, then on to our hotel. On... More

Alvaro is great to work with and the team was incredibly prompt every time they picked us up! We learned so much about the country in our few car rides with them. They know the area very well (the family business is eight years old), and they made us feel very safe. They even surprised us with a trip to... More

A few of us cruise passengers took a full day "10 in 1 Highlight Tour" from Puntarenas. Monkeys, birds, a rain forest hike, a river cruise with Crocodile Man, a beach stop, and a delicious fresh fish lunch stop. Good knowledgeable guides familiar with the fauna and flora, and a nice variety of stops to give us a good overview... More

We took a 6 in 1 Puntarenas highlights tour when visiting Costa Rica recently during a cruise stop. The description of the tour was much better than what we actually experienced. Let's just say if we wanted to only see birds, monkeys, parrots, and crocodiles during an excrutiatingly long 6 hour tour, we would have gone to our local zoo... More

I spent a lot of time organizing this tour for about 20+ people. Alvaro was excellent to deal with by email and his prompt, helpful replies and the ratings on tripadvisor encouraged me to book with them. I have done a lot of private tours in the past and this was not up to the calibre I expected. First, they... More

Alvaro from Odyssey tours was very accommodating and helpful with our travel to and from the Puntarenas ferry from San Jose. He even helped us secure a driver once we arrived in Paquera last minute.

Our driver Eddie met us at the pier (look for a sign with your name on it). He escorted us to a very nice, well equipped mini van. He loaded up with water, beer and soda for our drive. Took us by to meet his boss and we were on our way. I cannot say enough about what a safe... More

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.
