We used Swiss Travel to book our airport transfers and three tours. The airport transfers were exactly on time, buses were clean and cool, drivers and guide were professional. We booked three day trips: Arenal, boat trip to National Park and Nicaragua volcano. All three trips were great. Again, bus on time, guides knowledgeable with good English skills, local restaurants... More

We booked 3 tours with Diego, there were 8 in our group so we were given private tours. Tours were custom to our liking (more of this, less of that). Palo Verde Boat Tour with lunch and waterfalls was great. Lots of wildlife crocs, monkeys, parrots and much more. Very relaxing, best meal of the trip! We then stopped at... More

Excellent experience, lots of animals and amazing rainforest walks. Sensoria is more 'wild' but both walks were great in their own way. Arenal is a long day (especially the ride back between 6:30-9:30) so bring a book or tablet for the way home (the way there is tons of sights and info to keep you entertained). Swiss Travel runs a...

I used Swiss Travel to organize a sunset cruise for a group of friends to celebrate my husband's birthday which included a 2-hour bus tour to the beach from our resort. We also used Swiss Travel for another bus tour to hot springs near Rincon volcano. During both bust tours, our guides were friendly, warm and very knowledgeable. They weren't... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott where they had an office but even prior to our trip when I searched the internet Swiss Travel is the main tour agency that shows up. They will take care of you and your family needs. So just select your tour and follow their instructions. We chose the Nicaragua day trip and were very... More

My wife and I did the Combo Mega Tour with our guide Walter on March 9th. Company is incredibly well organized. Walter had everything laid out for us from the time we were picked up at the Westin (7:40 AM precisely), to our transfer at Swiss Travel headquarters (both out and back), to our lunch, activities...literally everything was as described....

What an awesome experience! We were picked up at our hotel, Riu Palace, at 5:30am and arrived back about 10pm. Long day, but an absolute must to see-2 countries for the price of one. Gustavo was our driver and Edwardo was our guide. "Ray" was our guide once we got into Nicaragua. The guides were extremely organized and an unbelievable... More

Swiss Travel offers great tour packages to help you explore Costa Rica. We were a group of 4 staying near Tamarindo for 5 days. We signed up for the Arenal Volcano tour, Turtle Watching tour, coffee tour, and rapelling tour. The Arenal Volcano and Rapelling tours were full day outings and they picked us up from our hotel, provided lunch... More

Diego was amazing to work with. He outlined all the tours and assisted us with explanations of differences to make our decisions. Ask for Edwardo for private guide, he was awesome. Very knowledgeable and joked with us. Kept us entertained all day.

We did the Mega Combo tour, which included zip lining, waterslide, lunch, horseback riding, mineral springs. Ronald was an amazing tour guide and very informative. The zip lining was great and the waterslide was a 1400 foot waterslide through the jungle and lots of fun. The lunch was very good as well. The horseback riding wasn't my favorite, as the... More
