We really enjoyed this tour. The taxi driver dropped us in the wrong location, but the tour guide took the time to find us. Then, even though the internet said the train was running, but it was not. The tour guide again showed great initiative by securing a van very quickly. Then, my husband had some issues with his knees, and the guide was so kind to get him a ride to a good point where we could walk the rest of the way. Also, the markets and places we visited we just the type of experience we were looking for. I would highly recommend this tour because of the truly personal services that were provided, and the group size was small and intimate.
An enjoyable cycling tour around an interesting and pretty city just a train ride away from san jose. a well run tour with lots of information and set at an easy pace with many local sights explained so you get to see another side to life in costa rica. The major attraction is the beautifully decorated church wth an interesting story of its founding and an equally interesting local tradition associated with pilgrims seeking divine intervention for sickness or ailments. highly recommend this easy tour for those who enjoy cycling and want to see another aspect to life in costa rica.
The tour guide Eric was phenomenal and very informative. We have learned so much that we may consider being future residents of Cartago. The combination of the train and bike tour was much fun! Awesome tour!
Our guide was punctual, courteous and extremely informative. The train ride was great as the scenery was viewed from a different perspective other than car or bus. Cartago is a beautiful city and well worth the trip of exploration as it was the original capitol of the county. The market was as authentic as it gets and the bike ride challenging as we rode up and down the hills. A good workout with a good guide. Thanks for the experience! Joe and Donna from Florida.
This tour was great! Biking around the scenic town of Cartago with Eric was not only a work out but very informative and fun. We stopped at the local feria for lunch and bought exotic fruits and veggies. I highly recommend this tour if you are looking to explore the beautiful Central Valley!
