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

We booked Odyssey Tours prior to our cruise ship visit, and we were delighted with how much we could see in one day: monkeys, iguanas, crocodiles, beautiful birds, and native plants. We were very pleased with our guide, our excellent driver, and the brand-new van with excellent air-conditioning and wi-fi. Highly recommend this tour.

We chose Odyssey Tours first because of the positive reviews on TA, but most importantly, because Alvaro responded promptly to my inquiries about the company through email. My friends and I had never travelled to Costa Rica so we were clueless about what to do and see. But thanks to Alvaro, we had our adventures planned before we left the... More

We had visited Costa Rica in March 2015 but our cruise ship was listing Puntarenas as a port where we would stop for the day. We had about decided not to do any excursions in Costa Rica due to having visited about a year before - sure glad we changed our mind and booked a tour with Odyssey. The tour... More

Look no further. This is a wonderful travel company and very reliable and friendly. Also a family run Costa Rican business, which is great because they are SO knowledgeable of the country.

We'd booked a tour for four people as a shore excursion and were really looking forward to it after reading the positive reviews on TA. We were met at the dock by a representative of the company who introduced us to our guide Robert. The day started well with the monkeys, the stop for smoothies, the river trip to see... More
