We did two tours through Swiss Travel when we stayed in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We did a full day tour to Nicaragua and the Pure Adrenaline tour. We've gone on a number of tours over the years, and these Swiss Travel tours were by far the most organized and well-run tour company we've experienced. The tour guides were very professional,...

I was so happy when Humberto at Occidental Papagayo arranged three day tours during my stay. He was delightful to deal with. I couldn't have possibly enjoyed my tours (hike to waterfalls, zipline combination activity tour along with the river tour) Each tour was exactly what was explained to me, a great experience each day and everything I was hoping...

This was a 14 hour day from our Secrets resort and so worth every minute of this long day. Allen was our guide and most knowledgeable/passionate about the "residents" of the rainforest. Our group was split in two so everyone could enjoy conversation and not be lost in the crowd. While on the three hour drive we stopped 1/2 way... More

We took a long day trip from Riu Guanacaste to Arenal for one day of our one week trip to Costa Rica. The trip was well-organized and there were no issues with the transportation. Meals were better than expected, and the bus was comfortable and well air-conditioned. The tour guide was very informative and genuine- enjoyed his personal perspective of... More

Our group of 4 adults and 3 children (13,10 and 5) went on the Mega Combo tour with a private guide. The additional fee (about $180), was money well spent. Our guide, Dennis, was fantastic. We spend about 2 hours driving each way as we were picked up near Tamarindo, and we were able to learn so much on the... More

We stayed at the JW Marriott and booked the 2 hour ATV tour through Swiss Travel. A a little wary because of mixed reviews but went for it anyways. I must say we were pleasantly surprised. My 16 year old son rode his own ATV while my wife and two younger kids rode in a "buggy". We were picked up... More

Swiss travel was available at our resort, the Westin. Loved those guys, very nice and humorous. We scheduled the tour to Sensoria, the rainforest for Tuesday. When we came to the lobby, they could not find our reservation. They put us on the tour for the next day and gave us the zip line tour that day. Zip line canopy... More

I purchased a snorkeling tour package for me and my girlfriend from Swiss Travel at the Hotel Riu Palace. The snorkeling tour was for the Vision Catamaran and was sold to me by Naldo Diaz (Booking# 520979). This tour was over sold and there wasn't enough snorkeling gear on the boat for my girlfriend and I. talked to the crew... More

We especially loved the day tour from Guanacaste, Costa Rica to Granada, Nicaragua. The tour guides, Walter and Elvis, were excellent sources of information and fluent in Spanish and English. We began our journey from the Riu Palace at 5:30am and stopped for breakfast at the Swiss Travel headquarters. Unfortunately, the included breakfast was pretty disgusting with runny scrambled eggs...
