Four of us chose to take a tour with Chico over renting a car, and I am glad we did. The cost was a bit higher, but Chico was a great guide. He certainly knows the country, made some great suggestions, and stayed with us the whole day. He speaks english clearly, and has some great connections. He called ahead... More

Visited Costa Rica for the first time in November of this year, it was a great trip made even better thanks to Chico and his family at Chicostours.com. We had the privilege of meeting Chico, his daughter Julia and son Michael. I contacted the Double Tree Central Pacific several weeks prior to our scheduled departure concerning transportation to the hotel... More

We went to Monte Verde (2adults, 1 child; 6 years old) and Chico was friendly, accommodating, and incredibly knowledgeable with strong English communication and translating skills. He made us feel safe and welcome and was part of our journey that made us fall in love with Costa Rica.

Chico is a great tour guide and driver. He took us to the local city and told us what areas were good and bad. Another day, he took us to the Poas Volcano and Botos Lagoon along with stops to a local Strawberry shop (yummy), Coffee Plantation tour (which included a Bonsai & Butterfly Garden), a stop by the church...

We were staying in Puntarenas, we hadn't planned much on what we wanted to do, just a few basic things. We ended up in a cab with his son Michael, and we are soo lucky we did! They helped us plan our entire stay and made it more than we could have asked for! They both were so knowledgeable about... More

We were lucky enough to find Chico of 'Chico's tour's'. We wanted a 1/2 day tour and he did that but we so much in the time frame. Along with his narration we ended up having a A+ guide and tour seeing more than anything we could have hoped for. He was so good to us. We needed to stop... More

We had a wedding party of 22 family and friends arriving and departing on multiple flights. Chico and his daughter Julia not only accommodated us with our travel necessities perfectly, but they also helped us plan the entire week's itinerary. Everyone in our group absolutely adored Chico and his family and all gave Chico a large portion of the credit... More

We have been coming to Costa Rica for years. We had used several private transports. Never satisfied with any of them. Most drove like they were racing, all were late, it was never a pleasant experience! Until we booked Chico's Tours!! We have been using them exclusively for two years now! We recommended them to friends and associates. They are... More

We were lucky enough to be able to book a tour with Chico right on the pier when we left our ship. His knowledge of the area and the history was exceptional. He took very good care of us and was very patient as several of our group could not walk great distances. He took us places that most large... More

We were in port for one day on May 1 and booked a tour, we were to meet at the end of the pier at 8:30 Chico didn't show, another operator called him and Chico was at the other Cruise pier. We were able to find another tours guide and had a great day. Here is a part of my... More
