Great all day fun. Driver was Jose. He was fantastic. Gave us great info on Costa Rica as we drove. Was always there at the switching of activities to let us know what was next and what we needed. Provided water and beer! Tubing was great. All activities safe with helmets and explanations. Fun day!

My husband and I loved the cultural experience, the fascinating Tampisque River tour, the delicious lunch at the Hacienda El Viejo, and most especially, our fabulous tour guide, Jose! He was super informative and accommodating, very pleasant to be around, and made us feel comfortable.

We were disappointed with this tour. Looking at the advertising and videos we expected more. It just seemed like we drove and drove and drove. Just stopped for a photo op once, and then at Las Catalinas resort area where we bought sandwiches and had 20-30 minutes on the beach. Their advertising mentioned a secluded beach, not a busy resort area! It was during the dry season so it was very dusty. I imagine the dust is less and the scenery better at other times of the year. This was a pricey tour, not really worth the money we paid.

This tour was NOT what we thought it would be! No stopping along the way to see any view points, towns or anything scenic. just one straight shot to a single boring destination turn around and come back home. As we were getting ready to return back a passerby noticed one of the buggies had a flat tire. We were not upset by this as these things happen. We assisted our guide in changing the tire ( he did not know how to use the jack or where to put it ) and we’re on our way. Once we return back to the Tico Tour Office, we were informed that they expected us to pay for the tire. This was a huge shock to us considering we were on a tour driving behind a guide. I would understand having to pay for something like this if we were negligent in someway but we were following our guide who was controlling the speed as well as the destination. So it is not like there was any opportunity to do anything inappropriate with the vehicle to be blamed for such negligence. We spoke with the owner of the company who informed us that signing up for the buggy tour it’s like renting a car and you are liable for anything that goes wrong with it. So just be warned that your very expensive buggy trip may end up costing you much more money than you expected for something that is totally out of your control.

We travel to Costa Rica to visit family every year (except COVID years) and use Tico Tours exclusively. The drivers are attentive, responsive, well-informed, and speak English very well. Every tour has been a great tour, and we've done quite a few: Surfing lessons in Tamarindo, zip-lining at Diamante (and Borinquen, and Rio Perdido), Blue River, all day trip on a 60 ft catamaran, and more. This trip we did the Bio-luminescence tour and it was amazing. Their restaurant recommendations are honest and accurate. I can't imagine going to Costa Rica and not seeing Bernal, the Marco's (grande and Marquito), Walter, Eduardo, and others. If you want to have a fantastic experience, and feel welcomed and safe, go with Tico Tours.
