  • I've taken many tours and it is always difficult to pinpoint why I was not thoroughly impressed with a tour. I am not sure if it was the guide, the city, or the tour agenda. This was one of those occasions. We visited a central park that had a great deal of public art, a church that unfortunately was closed, the Central Theater, the Gold Museum, and then a local workshop. My favorite part of this tour was the Central Theater and the bits of art that we saw at the other locations. It was unfortunate that we did not get to see the church and the final stop was not at all necessary.

  • The tour was an excellent way for us to see some very interesting and historical areas in the city. Our guide was well versed and answered all questions thoroughly. We have actually been in the city for a few weeks and this tour gave us a better understanding of areas and places we may want to go back and visit. Dress comfortably, ladies don't bring big bags if possible because there is some walking involved.The only thing I would like to see changed is a better selection for the afternoon snack, maybe tamales and empanadas and not cake? But, overall we loved the tour, tour guide and driver. As they say in Costa Rica Pura Vida
