The city tour was pretty much what we expected and wanted! - to get a taste of the city, literally and figuratively. Our guide, Vinnie, spoke English well, and more importantly, he was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of San Jose. He cares deeply about his

Gladys, our tour guide, did a fantastic job introducing us to the local cuisine and exotic fruits, as well as bananas and coffee, giving us an unvarnished account of their role in Costa Rican history. The Gold Museum is a must see, especially for the indigenous history and

Our guide, Vinicio, was awesome. He was incredibly knowledgeable with a great personality. We learned a lot about the history of the city, the country, the markets, and other various sights. However, this tour did NOT include breakfast or a "morning pick-me up cup of coffee"

Hello the main idea, is to try food as we walk because if you eat a big breakfast in the walking tour, after all you will feel to heavy to continue walking, usually most of the comments of the tour is too much food, but that it depends of the people, thats why we are always asking to our clients if they would like to repeat the main food is at the end in the choco place with a tamal coffee and pure chocolate drink because is 100% pure we give you a little cup but always with the option to repeat as many times you want. Thanks to share your opinion with us to help us to improved our service. Eric
