2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2015

On the City Tour, entrance fees were not included for tours of Pre-Columbian Gold Museum nor the National Theater. The National Theater WAS open on Sunday.
The dinner at Ram Luna was interesting, and the show very short. There were no fireworks and had not been for some time according to the owner. Views from the mountain over the city were fabulous.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2015

There were nothing for City Sightseeing. I don't like the fact about showing how gold molding to jewelry and emerald show case. It was selling pitch for their jewelries. The art gallery was NOT Wow! Traditional music and dance show last 15 minutes and wasn't good music neither. The dinner was not even to an average taste. I was a waste of money and time. I give two stars for the tour guide and the museum.


1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2016

This was a terrible, tour! Our driver, Carlos, picked us up at 3:15 pm, as scheduled, but he refused to stop at the National Theatre or the Gold Museum as scheduled, because it was raining. We didn't care, but he said that, besides, the museums close at 3 pm.If this is true, who was this tour scheduled for 3:15 pm? Instead, he wanted to take us to a place I know for food. We had already eaten and refused to go with him. Instead he drove us around the city for awhile in the rain did not really point out much of anything except one neighborhood and then insisted we get out at the Diamond and Emerald place. It was raining, we didn't want to go in, but he insisted and, once again, we got very wet! Then, instead of dropping us back at our hotel to change into dry clothes, he insisted we head up the mountain to the dinner, although we were going to be at least an hour too early, to see the view How long does THIS take!. On the way, he stopped for gas why did he not do this BEFORE taking on passengers. We stayed at the station for a long time after he filled up, and the fumes were very offensive. Don't know what Carlos did, but we nearly suffocated in the car and of course he could not turn on the car and the A/C because he stayed at the pump. With windows closed, we could hardly breathe with them open, the fumes were overpowering. By the time we reached the restaurant, we were both feeling ill, and we were an hour early for the buffet. The buffet itself was adequate, as was the Costa Rican dancing, but by this time we were feeling so ill, we asked to be taken home and missed part of the entertainment, but we had no choice, as this had already been a totally disaster of a day for us. Never again! If you are planning this tour, find out about this stuff before you pay for it, as this was a TOTAL waste of our money, our time and our health!
