Our family had a beautiful vacation in Guanacaste. Highly recommend working with Issys Tours who customized our snorkeling trip and sunset boat cruise. Our driver Estaban lived in Guanacaste so he was very knowledgeable about the area. He picked us up in Fortuna (Arenal area) and drove our family to Guanacaste. He was then with us for the next 4 days. My family was at ease knowing that Estaban was looking after us and even recommend a local lunch and a fantastic dinner at a local restaurant. Don’t even think about booking your tours with anyone else! Greg P.

We used Issys for three separate drives on our trip last month and highly recommend their transportation services! Esteban was a fabulous driver!!

He picked us up in the evening at Liberia airport and drove us to la Fortuna
He drove us from La Fortuna to El Mangroove
He drove us from El Mangroove to Liberia

Esteban was always a bit early and a great and careful driver. We enjoyed talking with him and would recommend him and Issys to everyone.

I have used Issys Tours everytime I have visited Guanacaste, from our round trip airport transport to all the excursions. This is my third trip to Costa Rica. Esteban our driver picked us up from the airport and took us to all our excursions. He was punctual, kind, friendly, attentive, informative, and funny. He picked us up from the airport promptly. He took us to an ATV tour through the forest which was an exciting and great excursion. We had a sunset cruise and snorkeling. The captain Eduardo was a great host and Esteban was there as well to show us around. By the end of our trip he was no longer just our driver, he was now our amigo. I would highly recommend Izzy Tours for anything and everything you have to do in Costa Rica. We could not have asked for a better company to make our vacation perfect

Ok so let start off.. first of all i booked my entire bday vacation adventures with them. The first ones were horse back riding zip lining and the mud bath/hot spring. That was amazing they sent a tour guide who was soooo good. He helped us with everything kept our belongings and stayed with us and then even taking us out later that night because we felt so safe with him.. day 1 adventures were great. Ok so now day 2 of adventures My actual bday- ATV day. They sent an ATV guide to pick us up and on our way to the location it started down pouring. We got to the location and they only have manual atvs when they told me it was automatic. I asked about the automatic, It’s three of us and they only found one automatic atv. I requested to just get my money back since it was pouring and they didn’t even have the right equipment. The guide got upset and wanted us to still ride in the rain and ohhh play attention to his hand signal so we will know how to handle the manual atv!! Unbelievable, I was so upset i demanded my money back and asked them to drop us back to the resort. They stated they will provide a refund in two weeks. My trip was July the adventure was on the 7/5 it’s now almost December and they still have not refunded my $300 for the adventure that didn’t happen. I’ve reached out to them 3x no response.

Hello In the first place, the driver had to wait for her 1 hour to leave the hotel, from the beginning we noticed the lack of interest in going on the tour. We found it disrespectful that she made fun of our time in such a way, but we still decided to continue the journey. AT NO TIME DURING THE RESERVATION PROCESS SHE REQUESTED THE MACHINES TO BE AUTOMATIC, however when she arrived at the place they offered her SEMIAUTOMATIC machines, NOT manual and then they were explained how to use them and she did not want them either. Even so, in order to keep her happy with our service, we did our best to get her the AUTOMATIC machines and she still didn't want them. It is known that once on the site the money can´t be returned because the machines have already been prepared and reserved for that day IN ADVANCE, the company has the transport, the guide and the machines that day for this tour, we were responsible for providing the service. Unfortunately, since the driver picked her up, it became very clear that she didn´t have available to do the tour, and that the LIGHT RAIN, because it did not rain much, was just a pretext for not doing the tour and holding ourselves responsible. for the cancellation of the tour. We are sorry for the inconvenience but we are a very responsible and punctual company with our clients and we always try to ensure that our service is the best for each client who contacts us.

We did the mega combo adventour tour. Our driver, Nolberto, picked us up at our hotel at 7am. The first stop was a one hour, relaxing horse ride through a path in a national park. From there we changed into bathing suits and walked down to a river where we met up with some other tourists and "river guides" who loaded us into tubes and we "white water" tubed 2 miles down a river. It was exhilarating ! Next we went to another part of the same park where we were outfitted for the zip line experiece. There were about 8 platforms which took us zip lining over the river that we had just tubed down. After that was a lunch that may have been our favorite meal of the trip...a delicious buffet of traditional rice, beans, vegetables, and meat of your choice. The next event was to the volcanic mud bath where we were "painted" with volcanic mud and then sat in the sun for a short period to dry. We then washed off the mud in the hot springs, which ranged in various temperatures from hot to warm to cool. We could stay there as long as we wanted. The surprise at the end of the adventure was we learned a young man had been following our group along on all the events and had taken very personal and up close pictures of each of us. We purchsed the download of 249 pics of the four of us for only $60 (cash). A steal for some great memories and laughs! Highly recommend this adventure.

I booked Issys Tour for roundtrip airport transport and they asked to pay cash. I was skeptical at first but had a great experience. Esteban picked us up at the Liberia Airport with a sign to include family's name. he stopped at a Mango tree and even got one for us. He was very nice and informative. Issys Tour also offers several tours which we didn't book but will next time.

We had a wonderful experience with Issy’s tours. Esteban was able to pick us up at the airport last minute, he was there as soon as we walked out and the price was very reasonable. Unfortunately we did not have time for adventure tours, but Esteban took us to visit coco beach and on a mini brewery tour on our way back to the airport. He was extremely polite and went out of his way to help us out when we left our bag an hour away at the hotel. I would highly recommend Issy’s tours and especially Esteban!!

We took several tours with Issys Tours. We also used their airport transportation services for several different groups of people in our large travel group. They were always prompt; never once late. The vehicles were clean and well maintained. They accommodated us with groups of 3 all the way up to a group of 20! They even saved several of our group by urgently transporting them to the airport after their previously booked transportation didn’t arrive! Couldn’t recommend them enough! Thanks Issys Tours!

This tour was an absolute joke. Was not worth $170 at all. Maybe $75.
The tour guide was knowledgeable but we were not told about the length of the drive (3 HOURs!). The crater was a joke. Very lame and the tour photos are very deceiving!!! Not happy with the entire experience for our group of 9!

This is a FAKE review because you as a customer agreed to the prices that are already set by the company, which include the costs per tour, which I am not supposed to break down for you. The time was something that I warned you about many times, so as not to have mad customers, but you rejected all my closest suggestions, it was YOU who INSISTED on going to Miravalles. Your comment is very unfortunate but everything is a farce and you know it, I have all the EVIDENCE in the mail and on WhatsApp. The photos that are on the page correspond to those of the complex. We are a serious company, and with many years of experience, we do not sell to people just to MAKE money, we are characterized by offering our clients the best and most unforgettable vacations.

We took a private coffee and chocolate with Issy’s Tours. Our guide Norberto picked us up at our resort and was very knowledgeable about the area we drove through. Danny and Wilson fro the Coffee and Cacao Tours in Alajuela gave us a great experience. We finished up with an authentic Costa Rican lunch and a butterfly garden. Truly enjoyed our time. Would recommend 100%!
