This tour is outstanding. I was on my way to a coastal town and had one night in San Jose. This was the perfect way to spend my time. Our guide, Angel has an intimate knowledge of the material and he unveils the history and culture of Coast Rica in an interesting and humorous way. He is a true joy to be around, and the kind of guy you'd like to have a drink with. In fact, I did!
The dinner was muy excelente. Very high end and very tasty. This restaurant has a hand-crafted new menu very night. The decor and the wait staff were first class and Angel did a great job orchestrating our dining experience. A great way to cap off a fantastic, enriching and worthwhile experience. This is a must for all first timers in San Jose. Puravida!
You must call and get the phone number of the tour guide. We spent about 30 minutes trying to meet up with our guide because the meeting location was non specific. Which is stressful for people new to the area. Once the tour started everything was great. The indoor market is truly an experience and the food was delicious. My family had a great night and took lots of great pictures.
It was everything it claimed to be. We met downtown, visited a local coffee store where they actually roasted beans and had a tasting. Visited a market where restaurants got their produce. Went to a local restaurant and had tortillas, walked thru downtown and got a history lesson, had a wonderful meal in the restaurant district. Our guide Erik was great. Quite a lot of walking 2/12 to 3 miles up and down hills so take that into consideration. My husband had had a stroke in the past but the guide and others in the group were considerate.
Loved the guide. HIs passion for his heritage was inspiring. He went out of his way to make certain everyone on the tour had their questions answered. The restaurant looked great, food was the best I had in Costa Rica, but that's not high praise. One sour note, the restaurant projects unnecessary and distracting vintage cartoons on one wall and one shown was the tiger chasing little Black Sambo character. Really, in 2018, one would think there might be a bit more cultural sensitivity shown. The write up for the restaurant promised up to 3 glasses of wine, but only two were offered and plates were cleared with the expectation that we would leave without the offer for the third. Half of the group left including our guide, the rest of us inquired about the third glass and staff had to have a discussion among themselves before deciding to pour it. We weren't making an unreasonable request for them to honor their advertising and I didn't appreciate the obvious cold treatment we received at the end.
Would highly recommend this tour. Was a fun and informative way to experience San Jose for the first time. Eric was fantastic, his information was interesting, he really knew the history and current information about San Jose. The dinner was awesome. We had so much fun
great guide -very knowledgeable and familiar with the market area. Things had changed from the original booking, and although everything was awesome, including the new dining venue, it was disappointing not to be dining in Escazu
