this trip had a more difficult aspect in that the destinTion was in a very remote spot. It required an overnight stay enroute. All flights and transfers proceeded smoothly. The accomodations were as advertised. The only glitch was that no boarding pass was provided for leg of return flight. It turns out, none was needed, but that was not explained ahead of time.

Swiss Travel helped our travel agent coordinate a nearly 2 week trip in Costa Rica.  A representative met us at the airport, gave us our final itinerary, introduced us to the driver who would be taking us to our first destination, and then checked on us intermittently throughout the trip.  All the drivers and guides who we met were professional and helpful.  While we never needed to contact someone from Swiss Travel for additional assistance, it was comforting to know that we had local contacts in the event of an emergency.

Swiss Travel provided our family with top-quality service throughout our recent vacation in and around Costa Rica. Our adventure spanned three regions - with each and every Swiss Travel Guide and Driver being extremely friendly, knowledgeable and humorous! Staff went above and beyond in describing local cultures, economic vagaries of the country's regions, historical perspectives and environmental policies that every country should aspire. Thank you, Swiss Travel and Valerie Wilson Travel! The DC Z's

Before this trip I had no idea what Costa Rica travel would be like. On arrival to the country SWISS TRAVEL was there with a smile. These people are first class. Driving through the country to our destinations their personal attention was immeasurable. Every time we had a transfer to an excursion or new hotel they were prompt, polite and engaging. We even made a request to stop at a Supermarket which they did!!! Love and thankfulness to all my Swiss Travel people!

These guys were the ultimate professionals. They are always punctual and provide very comfortable vehicles. Since my main bag didn't arrive with me, they didn't hesitate to stop at a suitable place so I could purchase a few things that I would need to get by. They made themselves available for language translation and anything else we needed. They gave us as much information along the way as we wanted. They were friendly and made us feel very welcome in their country. I'd highly recommend them.

The drivers were all very nice and friendly. They were on time and careful drivers However, the schedule leaving CR had them picking us up 5 hours before our departure. This shortened the time we had at the resort on the last day. And made for a very long day at the airport

Swiss Travel Did A Terrific Job!

By: Phil

Swiss travel met us at the boat as we disembarked and drove us straight to our resort in Costa Rica. The driver was friendly and very fluid in English. I wish we had been in a more comfortable vehicle than a bouncy 10-12 person van. The hotel we stayed at first - Nayara Springs near La Fortuna - is one of the nicest ad best hotels we've ever stayed in around the world. It was expensive but simply wonderful. We can't wait to return! We took a hike around the Arenal volcano with a guide and he was a delight. It was a very intimate tour and he was full of interesting and useful information. We wen to the Tabacon hot springs which were quite interesting and unlike any hot springs we'd ever visited. We had dinner at the hot springs restaurant buffet. It was awful! Near to inedible! We took a late afternoon ride into the middle of Cost Rica and then spent 90 minutes in the dark poking for frogs and other wold life. Our guide was fabulous and very informative and well as humorous.

From the moment we landed at our travel destination, Swiss Travel was a joy to work with. Their knowledgeable staff, guides, and drivers were first-class! We felt "a part of the family" when we were in their care. The choices of accommodations and locations were stellar and well researched. My husband and I would totally recommend Swiss Travel as a tour operator.

Swiss Travel’s Costa Rica Day Trip

By: ABQTraveler

Reviewed on: 19 Mar 2023

This was a custom designed day tour to fill in the day after leaving a ship in Puntarenas, Costa Rica. The van, driver and guide arrived at the pier early, but we didn’t know and left at the scheduled time. The van was good and comfortable and communication with our guide was clear. I had chosen three sites to visit; the town of Sarchi, known for handicrafts, the Poas Volcano and La Paz Waterfall Gardens. Sarchi was not very interesting but my wife and I very much enjoyed talking with a group of craftsmen with our guide helping translate. The volcano would have been a wonderful sight I’m sure if it hadn’t been completely fogged in so thickly that we could only about 15 feet into the crater. I took a picture of a postcard to know what we missed. La Paz Gardens was an excellent center and deserved a full day on its own. But the tour that I had called for involved much more driving time than I anticipated. Our guide and driver worked late to get us to our hotel at 7PM.
