Issys Tours really helped to make our entire vacation to Costa Rica an incredibly enjoyable and memorable experience. We did the Palo Verde wildlife tour, the Tenorio Adventures River Rafting, the African Safari Wildlife Park, and the Sunset Boat Tour, all booked through Isyss. As everyone mentions in their reviews, Chris is incredibly responsive – I initially sent an email... More

We used Issys for our airport transfers, the Mega Combo Tour, 1/2 day Fishing, and Palo Verde tour. They made everything very easy, fun, and informative! Elvis for the Mega Combo was a WEALTH of information! He was so friendly and nice and taught us a lot. Pedro for the Palo Verde tour was also very knowledgeable and such a... More

Issys Tours was excellent at communication and very responsive 24hours a day, Chris has great customer service. We had the pleasure of doing a day trip to Palo Verde National Park with Gerson. Gerson is so knowledgeable, gives a tour from the initial pick-up through the main event and is very well spoken and attentive. We could not have asked... More

We had such a great time and it was made even better by our guide Gerson with Issys. He was so helpful and knowledgeable about the area and things to do/not to do. It's a little more expensive than other guided trips but it is worth having the extra time to enjoy the trip.

Costa Rica Issy's Tours was wonderful to work with from start to finish. E-mailing with Chris to make last minute arrangements was very smooth and he was extremely responsive to my requests. The transport to and from the Liberia Airport was very comfortable, well worth the price to avoid a big group shuttle. We also did two excursions and had... More

My friends and I used Issys Tours for airport transportation and went on three different tours. The trips were very well organized and maximized the number and variety of activities in the day. You can take an ice chest with beers and enjoy the rides rather than drive the crazy roads and get lost. I could not have asked for... More

We picked Issys based on great reviews, but what really made our trip was the lasting bond we developed with our guide. We ended up booking four tours with Issys but only because our guide joined us every time (except for one, where he made sure we would have a great time on an ATV trip with a different guide...
