This tour was very well done. The guide was very knowledgeable and the trip into the city market gave a nice window into the everyday life of San Jose residents.

It was a good start to our trip. Learned the history. Not enough time in the Market. I felt like we were running through it. The only stop was a souvenir stand.

Wonderful trip around the city. Great team on the bus.

The bus was modern...even had WiFi, the 2 guides were great. The only disappointment was that there were only 6 people on the tour. Everything else was great but a huge double decker bus for 6 people didnt make sense. There were about 5 stops and lunch was fine but probably not worth the extra 20.00 charged for adding lunch to the tour. Learned so much about the interesting Costa Rican history.

I recommend it for those who are staying in San Jose and want to see what the city. The tour guide and the assistant was very nice and informative. We got to see a stadium, the museum of contemporary arts, the lobby of The national theater and a few more spots. The lunch was amazing!

This tour was great! I highly recommend. The tour guide was very informative and there was a singing guitar player who made the drive fun! San Jose is a great city and it was nice to see the highlights that I otherwise probably wouldnt have taken the time to see.
