We recently used Issys Tours and couldn't have been happier with the service. Luis picked us up at the airport and there was confusion about the number of people in our party. The van they had was smaller but all six of us piled in and were on our way to Playa Portrero. Luis kept apologizing about the size and... More

I had the pleasure of going on several tours with Issys Tours on my recent trip to Guanacaste​ Costa Rica. We were fortunate enough to have Gerson as our tour guide for each day. Gerson was extremely courteous, professional, and did everything he could to ensure our trip was one of a kind! I would gladly go back and do... More

We really enjoyed using ISSY Tours for excursion on our honeymoon. One of our favorites was the Sunset Boat tour we took. It ended up being the two of us alone which was so wonderful and intimate. The driver of the boat, Marcus, and his “co-captain” were fantastic and we so enjoyed exploring some of the nearby beaches with them.... More

I booked three tours with Chris. He was extremely responsive and answered all questions promptly. We first did the Palo Verde tour with Julio which was amazing. The kids saw crocodiles and we actually had white faced monkeys climb onto our boat. The tico lunch provided after the tour was delicious! We then did a snorkeling tour with Fabian which... More

We loved our guide Julio. He was very pleasant and accommodating. Good with my 6 & 8 year old. He gave us good suggestions regarding restaurants. Chris is very prompt with emails. I recommend them. Made the trip very hassle free.
