Marco is one of the best tour guys we have encountered so far. Marco made us feel at home immediately after we landed in this beautiful country! Marco is very passionate about his work and hence renders highest possible customer service! His personality exudes warmth which is also reflected in his country’s amazing culture and weather ! He is knowledgeable and guides you well through out the tour. He provided a clean, safe and an air conditioned bus with a reliable driver every time we went out for excursions. He was punctual and yet accommodating especially for a big group like us! He provided excellent local delicacies for lunch with all our exciting and adventurous activities like hiking in the rain forest, waterfall, horse riding , zip lining , local beach tour , mud bath and hot springs! We also had a senior citizen in our group who was provided with ample care whenever she accompanied us. All in all, Marco definitely made it a memorable experience for us which I will cherish forever! Perfecto Marco !

Marco Tours was recommended by our vacationstogo.com travel agent. We were a group of 18 people with differing interests. Marco was constantly in touch, patiently discussed and created a perfect itinerary for us even before we landed in Liberia. He received us at the airport and acted as a local guide during our week long stay in Guanacaste province. His tour company has nice, clean buses and we always felt safe during our travel. Marco was always on time and we never felt rushed through any of our tours. Infact our tours always went 2-3 hours beyond the allotted time. Marco is very knowledgeable of the area and very eager to show the stunningly beautiful country of Costa Rica (and even Panama, Nicaragua) He is fluent in English, provided information about the region and kept us entertained throughout our tours. He transferred us to and from airport, took us to Monteverde, three beaches (Flamingo, Brasilito and Tammarindo) and an adrenaline pumping adventure tour at the foot hills of Rincon de la Veja Volcano. The long day tours were well arranged, had ample time and our large group was able to soak and enjoy the diverse landscapes from black sand beaches, horse riding through the mountains, ziplining through the transitional forest to rain forest and even walk in the clouds at Monteverde. Marco ensured that our group stayed together in all the attractions and was engaged throughout the tours. Marco is a great tourist brand ambassador of his country and is highly recommended for information and tours if your are planning to visit Guanacaste (Liberia) region of Costa Rica. Rest assured he will be more of a amigo than a tour guide. Perfecto...!!

Marco Tours is fantastic! We were referred by our friends and we all work in the travel industry. He was on time, personable, and greeted us with a hug and a beer. We booked our airport transfers with him and a tour to Rincon Nation Park. The van was cool, clean, and Marco was knowledgeable about everything on our guided tour. We felt safe and can now call Marco a friend. He is fluent in multiple languages and made us feel right at home. He was accessible via Facebook and responded in seconds! Great guy and great company!
