Great way to learn the city

This was a great way to see the city and learn the history of Costa Rica. Our guide, Mario, (aka Bubba), was friendly, kind-hearted, and knowledgeable. He gave us options as we went along to ensure we got the most out of our experience.
Nice overview of city

Donald was amazing. He seem less translated everything he said in both English and Spanish, since our small group of about 8 people had both English and Spanish speakers. The best part was the preColumbian gold museums, but I also really liked the short walk in the park.
very pleasant way to see San Jose

"San José: Guided City Bus Tour With Lunch & Welcome Drink" was excellent, with driver Ivan and host Jordan. I even had email access problems, and the Get-your-guide service quickly responded. The guide was bilingual, as half the visitors preferred Spanish. We saw main parts of San Jose, and had an excellent lunch.
The guide was very knowledgeable, and spent a lot of time explaining things to us.
