This was our first time to Costa Rico. My husband and I were celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary. We rented a house and wanted to do a fun excursion. We booked our first zip lining tour through Mario at Tico Tours. He booked us an amazing zip line tour where my husband and I had an awesome day. Tico picked... More

We stayed in Casa Conde and Tico Tours had a small office there. It was perfect as we were able to confirm and make arrangements to book our Sunset Snorkeling Tour. We had never been snorkeling before and this was amazing. Took us to an absolutely beautiful area with so many fish. As we sailed following dinner we were flanked... More

From the beginning with the tour guide Marco and his attention to detail, knowledge of his country, wildlife and overall good spirited nature, this tour was a lot of fun. We toured Palo Verde and the historical El Viejo. A great trip for those that do not prefer a highly active tour but would like to experience the beauty and... More

Our tour consisted of horseback riding, zip lining, mud baths and hot springs. On our way back to the resort, we... More

Marco Elizondo was the best guide ever. We had an awesome vacation in Costa Rica and our day touring the volcano with Elizondo was the best part about it. Don't go with anyone else! He will show you a good time and show you the best of Costa Rica!

This group has it all. We spent several weeks hammering out details, changing our minds, asking for recommendations and Mario never got frustrated or waivered. Our group had some people with physical issues, some teenagers and then adults. They worked around everything for us. I HIGHLY recommend them for arranging any needs you may need while in Costa Rica, especially... More

My friends and I used Tico Tours for airport transplantation and went on three different tours - the sunset sailing/snorkeling tour, Monteverde coffee/cocoa and Cloud Forest tour, and ziplining/horseback riding/mud bath at Borinquin. The employees were always friendly and very responsive making tours easy to book. We specifically requested Marco as our driver for each tour we booked based on... More

During the 45 minutes drive to the boat we got many informations on plantation, tropical dry forest, school system and health care in Costa Rica. Out guide had an answer to almost every question. On the boat we saw a... More

This is a small, family-owned business. Very nice people to work with! We did the ATV Beach/Monkey Jungle/Zipline tour. It was a blast. Machines worked great. Our guide was friendly and patient. Take the goggles and the dust mask when offered, this is the dry forest after all and life here is dusty. Our first zipline tour was awesome. So... More
