This was the perfect way to get to know San Jose and it's culture. Daniel was the best. Its definitely worth your money! We did alot in 4 hours time and got to see the city in a way we would never have without a guide. Definitely 5 stars. Bring a sweater as it does get chilly.
An awesome bite of Costa Rica

The central market!! We loved the whole tour, from the history to the food. The Central Market was the best because we truly felt immersed being surrounded by true Costa Rica.
Fun evening!

How to make traditional Costa Rican coffee and more
Rhea_g, 09-01-2023
Great guide. He was knowledgeable and very accommodating to my husband’s physical needs. Seeing how the locals shopped at the market was interesting. I loved learning how to make coffee the traditional way and even bought a ‘coffee maker’. Dinner was so so. Food was okay, portions small and very few menu choices. The atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant made up for the mediocre meal. Overall, I had hoped for learning more about the Costa Rican culture and the history about the area we walked through.
Good tour of the main city in Costa Rica.

Our guide Daniel was very personable and knowledgeable. Took us through the central market, the main theater lobby, coffee shop and then a wonderful dinner. The only thing I wished more of is historical buildings or features and less of the market which was really crowded.
I enjoyed the mixed...

I enjoyed the mixed drinks and experiencing the coffee & chocolate shop prior to dinner. It was a nice escape from the rain and provided another way to experience the city.
Wonderful start to our Costa Rica visit

It was a rainy evening, and Daniel did a wonderful job providing a snapshot introduction to San Jose as well as spotlighting local businesses with a visit to a coffee & chocolate shop prior to dinner. The dinner was very good and it was just the right amount of time and information.
