Great and informative walk with a nice guide to discover San Jose's secrets!

Great experience for discovering San Jose in a different way! We had a history and art tour with Angie, who told us many stories about the city, the main buildings, but also less known ones. We visited Barrio Amon, Otoya, and city center, during a 2 hour pleasant walk. Perfect for a small activity before taking your flight! I highly recommend.
So glad I took this tour!

This tour was wonderful! We learned about aspects of the culture and history you don’t get from museums. Our guide, Alejandro, was knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about the topics he covered. One of the best walking tours I’ve been on.
Definitely recommend this tour!

This tour was so much fun, and I learned so many things about San Jose’s history and culture! I can’t say enough good things about our guide Alejandro. His in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm made this a memorable event.

Our guide was friendly and enthusiastic about the City, having lived in San Jose for many years, I was wondering what more could I possibly learn? My expectations were exceeded, there were so many amazing gems around the city that I had completely overlooked, places our guide pointed out and discussed with us. It was a very interactive and fun tour. Great conversation and informative tour. I learned a lot with Barrio Bird walking tours and I highly recommend it to anyone coming to San Jose. The meeting location was very easy to find and our guide was right on time! Thank you Barrio Bird Walking Tours!
Super fun cultural tour!

Really glad I did this 2 hour tour of San Jose! Got a sense of the cultural and historical perspective that one can miss by skipping the city! Our guide was lovely. She showed us beautiful galleries and street art. Highly recommend taking this tour and spending one day in San Jose doing this, a museum and the central market.
Excellent walking tour - highly recommended

I really enjoyed my walking tour of downtown San José with my guide Sharon! She shared a lot of interesting history that I wouldn’t have otherwise gleaned without her knowledge of the city. Definitely one of the highlights of my Costa Rica trip.
