This tour totally exceeded our expectations! Outstanding! Great value for the money. The itinerary included all that was listed on the website plus more. Our guide, Juan, did everything he could to make the tour as memorable experience as possible. This was truly one of the highlights of our 17 day Panama Canal Cruise.

We used Odyssey Tours to provide private transportation for our family of 5 from the airport in San Jose to a hotel in Tamarindo and back. All drivers were courteous and spoke English adequately. The driving was safe, and the vans were comfortable. The rate was also significantly less than another private driver we checked with!

We saw wild monkeys, fauna, birds and crocodiles. We are glad to find the Odyssey tour on the Internet and booked it before the cruise. It is much better the the cruise ship excursion and more economical. We were amazed at the guy who went into the water to feed the crocodiles. We were scared for his life. Don't know... More

We had a great time in Jaco Costa Rica with the help of odyssey tours (Alvaro). We searched around for a company to pick us up from the airport in San Jose prior to our visit. Odyssey Day Tours was the best priced one online. The company quickly responded to our email and did not ask for an outrageous deposit... More

We posted the 10 in 1 tour that Alvaro offered on the Cruise Critic Roll call of our ship hoping to get another 3 or 4 people to join our group of four to make the tour possible. We ended up with 46 of us going. Alvaro just kept adding minibuses to accommodate the growing numbers. It was a great... More

As a tourleader for a group off a cruiseship I had the pleasure of working with Odyssey Tours. Our local guide was Exon- a better guide does not exist. His knowledge about history, plants, animals, social issues .... was fantastic. I am returning in October (for the 5th time) and look forward to being welcomed by Odyssey Tours again.

We were a party of 8 (2 families) who employed Odyssey Tours after having read reviews off Tripadvisor. We were NOT disappointed!!!! Alvaro and I had numerous email contacts prior to our arrival. Upon arriving at the airport, he had someone there to greet us. En route to our hotel destination, we did experience a minor incident, but Mr ALvaro... More

Wonderful day hiking the cloud forest with Ronny Monoz. He picked us up at the ship dock in Puntarenas in a beautiful 2016 van with panoramic windows for a scenic drive to the cloud forest. He is a student in the Costa Rico University studying eco systems and how to maintain them. He gave us lots of information about the... More
