We really enjoyed our tour with Odyssey Day and our guide, Albert. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. If you only have one day here, this is the tour to do. This had been recommended to me by a friend and now I can recommend it to others. We were picked up right at the dock - easy and convenient. Six of us were in a comfortable AC van. The 10 activities were all great. One of the best was the cruise on the Tarcoles River to watch the birds and crocodiles in this mangrove forest. Amazing! A stop for a beverage at a restaurant with spectacular views from the rainforest was also a highlight. We ended up choosing to skip the last stop - a visit to Puntarenas as it was getting late and Albert did not want us to be late for the ship. We were all tired from a long, hot day and did not feel the need to walk around the city. We still did 10 sights because Albert had added an extra one in along the way. Thanks, Albert, for a great tour! We would like to come back to Costa Rica!

After our ship board tour was cancelled, we learned about the 10 in 1 Puntarenas Highlights tour from a fellow passenger.
I emailed the company as was pleasantly surprised not only at the prompt response, but they also said it would be no problem for my husband and I to join the tour last minute.
We had a wonderful tour experience. The guides, drivers etc... were fantastic.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone. The price was extremely resonable as well. Great lunch as well.

Thank you Odyssey for a great day

This tour was excellent, informative and entertaining. Ezra, our tour guide, was a trained, experience ornithologist, whose knowledge of the plants, birds and wildlife of the region was extraordinary. He not only showed us the monkeys and birds birds of the area but introduced us to the insects, and other creatures including bats and tropical fruits such as refreshing coconuts as well. And helped us see the animals close up with the aid of his telescope. In addition, he even found a pharmacy to assist one of our party who needed special medication. He also took us the the locally owned Crocodile Man river cruise where Jason, another guide, fearlessly waded into the water to awaken and feed huge crocodiles and helped identify exotic birds. This tour was one of the best and most educational I have ever experienced.

We paid for the '10 in 1 Highlights tour. ' After walking off the CR cruise ship pier, we were met by a person who had our names on his board, and he told us that the 10 in 1 tour didn't not have enough people to reserve that tour so we were told by the tour operator to incorporate his tour with us. The tour guide was nice, but the tour was not as described online. After view the crocodiles under the bridge, we had a long ride in a nice small bus to the top of a jungle mountain. Our goal was to climb on narrow paths and walk across 3 suspension bridges to reach the top of the mountain. We are 80/81 years old, and I have a bit of vertigo--this was not good. Another couple had a walker and instead went on a bumpy cart ride that was jarring. Walking up a mountain/ suspension bridges were not mentioned on the online ad. We did not see any macaws or monkeys anywhere on the trip nor were we told by the guide that we would see any. The crocodile boat ride was fascinating.
We received no lunch, which the guide said if we had lunch we would have to pay for it. This tour was not as described in the traveladvisor advertisement online. Other people on the tour did not pay as much as we did. We should get a refund, but probably not going to. Don't believe everything you read!!!!

On Feb 13 we experienced Odyssey's 10 in 1 Highlights of Costa Rica's Pacific Coast tour as a shore excursion. We had a wonderful day! Our guide Juan was amazing and kept us informed and entertained throughout. We learned so much about Costa Rica, the areas we were visiting, the wildlife we saw... the crocodile expedition was fantastic, and we saw an amazing number and types of birds and of course crocs. Juan showed us the monkeys too, calling them towards us in some way and pointing out many details about them. Driving through the rain forest, we learned about many trees and bushes of the area, and then ended up at a great place on a beach for a local lunch that was quite delicious. All in all it was a great day, enjoyed by all. We would do this tour again with great pleasure and no hesitation at all.

This tour included: stopping to see capuchin monkeys and macaws at the side of the road, seeing interesting birds (such as egrets) and crocodiles on a boatride (given by a separate company) on the Tárcoles River (and the boat driver gets out of the boat to tease/feed a crodocile - very unique experience!), a delicious Costa Rican lunch near the beach (with some brief freetime at the beach), a couple of stops at souvenir stores, a tour through Santa Lucia (a hotel with elements of a traditional village), and a stop at a vista point high up looking down on the whole area. The guide, Carlos, was very informative and nice, and he even took pictures of macaws and a bat for me through his telescope. The tour was well worth the money. As some others have commented here, the stores that they take you to are more expensive than some of the stores right by the port at Puntarenas, although some products were reasonably-pridced at the stores that they take you to.

We were looking for a private land tour of the area to fit in with our arrival by cruise ship in Puntarenas. Having done some research on YouTube, and Trip Advisor my wife decided to book with Odyssey. Communication with the company was quick and efficient and everything they promised they delivered in full. We were a group of six people and it was great to have a whole van to ourselves. Our guide was Ronald, who spoke very good English and did everything he could to accommodate our preferences and interests. An excellent lunch was included, and the highlight of the day had to be sailing down the Tarcoles River where we saw an amazing range of wildlife, and had the opportunity to get up close with some massive crocodiles. We didn’t have to pay until the tour was over and payment by card was accepted. A thoroughly great day was enjoyed by all and we recommend this company.

We had such a great day. We visited Costa Rica off a cruise ship. We had set up the tour prior to our cruise. Alvaro responded promptly to our inquiries. We discussed the itinerary and the cost. We didn’t have to pay anything upfront. We had a confirmation email a few days prior to the trip. There were a few delays as the ship took longer than expected to get clearance to disembark, but the Odyssey van was waiting for us with a sign outside the pier gates. It was a new Mercedes’ with air conditioned, 10 seater? with wifi. It was very comfortable. There were just the four friends in our group. We had a driver, Diego and a guide named Albert.
Albert was fabulous. He was personable, knowledgeable, extremely professional and very accommodating. He modified the day to better meet our needs and our time frame. We visited the monkeys and got up close and personal with the monkeys. That was a lot of fun. We saw a number of tropical birds on route. He even set up a telescope so we could get a better view. We got some great scenic views for photos.
We took a boat ride with just us down the Tarcoles river. Our river boat guide, Jasen was amazing. He took us to all the best spots to see crocodiles. We got some pretty wild video footage.
We saw quite a lot of the local scenery and sites. We also had a delicious authentic lunch and tropical fruit smoothies. It was a full day. It was extremely worthwhile and great value for the money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this company and our guide Albert

We signed up at the last moment and were lucky to get the last two seats on a 10 person bus. The tour was great and a great value, considering how many things we saw and did. The monkeys eating bananas out of our hands and sitting on our shoulders and seeing crocodiles up close were definitely the highlights, but we also saw many beautiful places, stopped at a good souvenir shop, and had a nice lunch.

With just 2 couples we could customize as we went along. Took us to a great small restaurant overlooking the beach. Access to the beach from the restaurant took us to a pretty uncrowded beach. Guide was fluent in English and very helpful. We could choose how much walking and exploring we wanted to do which made it great for those with mobility issues.
Great day trip.
