We were not disappointed! Our guide was Gerson and we feel extremely lucky to have had him. He picked us up from the hotel and immediately put us at ease.... More

For our visit to Costa Rica, we booked both a day long tour and our airport pick-up and drop-off with Issys Tours. I made the reservations for both prior to arriving in Costa Rica. The reservation process was very smooth -- I communicated with Chris, and received good information on pricing, payment, how to meet our drivers/tour guide, and what... More

We just returned from Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We booked our airport transfers and private tour through Issys.

We booked an excursion with Issys tours while staying at Secrets Papagayo in December. Roberto, a sales representative on the beach, helped us decide which excursion might suit our interests best. The one we chose was not a part of their brochure – Llanos de Cortez waterfall and Finca Verde, with a visit to Coco Beach at the end. It... More
