I had used Tico Tours before and had such a good time I thought I would try them again. Once again Bernal exceeded my expectations. We took the side by side four wheeler tour and had a blast. Bernal filled us in with facts about Costa Rica, had an ice chest with drinks and fruit along. He took us up... More

We didn't book any excursions with this company but we did use them for our Roundtrip transfer to and from Liberia airport to the RIU. The 7 of us had our own private van-equipped with complimentary beer and water. They were on time for pick up and the drivers were very friendly. At $130 Roundtrip total-the price couldn't be beat!... More

Tico Tours is the only company I will ever tour with. After touring with a few different agencies in the past I know why Bernal and his team are rated #1! Last month I decided to take a trip to Nicaragua with my 3 year old son. Or driver Juan Carlos was prompt and polite. Even though I live in... More

We have just returned from our amazing holiday to Costa Rica at Riu Guanacaste, being from the UK we had a list of experiences and wildlife that we hoped to see and although we saw quite a lot at our hotel resort, Iguana, Pelican, Snakes, Vultures etc, we wanted a good local guide to keep us safe and take us...

We had an amazing time on our ATV tour. A van picked us up outside our resort (the resort uses another tour company so Tico isn't allowed inside. Hmph.) Our guide was very friendly, informative & his English was good. We got to ride through some back woods, on a couple beaches & a brief ride through a neighborhood. The... More

Tico Tours Guanacaste is a superb tour company. There are many tours to choose from. My experience began with Mario (the company's concierge). He is a very kind & patient man. From my initial contact, he happily & readily answered by many, many questions by email. He even offered to call me to answer my final questions, which I accepted.... More

These guys are amazing! We used them for two tours Borinquen and White Water Rafting. They arrived on time to pick us up, the van was very clean and well stocked with water, juice, and beer. These were both all day trips and the places we went to were run by individuals who were very professional and experts in their... More

The trip is an all day affair. They pick you up and you have breakfast. Breakfast was okay. We then headed to the border and crossed into Nicaragua. In Nicaragua we saw a lake, a volcano, Granada, a cigar factory, a chocolate factory, an island of monkeys. The sites were wonderful. We had lunch at a wonderful restaurant where there... More
