  • This tour was fantastic!! Guide Steven was very friendly and knowledgeable. Great beer selections at each stop with a small bites included at 2. Several stops had a huge selection to choose from. - Suggest booking agency add a way to text the guide that we were running late to meeting place.

  • It wound up just being me and my two guides on this tour and they were the BEST!!!!!! I had so much fun, they had lots of Costa Rican knowledge and got a fun walking tour in between pubs.
    The best part was the alcoholic ice cream shop they took me to. Yes... booze and ice cream together. Yay!

  • Excellent beer tasting tour with lots of great history along the way.

  • Not only was this a beer tour but a San Jose history lesson! Our tour guide Jorgen was fantastic. Jorgen has a great knowledge of not only craft beer but of Costa Rican history as well.

  • Excellent tour. Great way to see the city and the various breweries that are keeping the craft beer scene alive and growing in Costa Rica. Tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about the different historical sights we passed on the way to each pub. We even stopped at a local coffee shop to try different types of Costa Rican coffee. Plenty of beer to try and the food was great as well. Definitely a must do tour for avid beer drinkers or those just looking to learn more about beer.

  • Beers were large tasting portions. It was just 2 of us and we learned a lot about San Jose neighborhoods and local bars. A lot of walking for us seniors but had a great time.
    Tip : you can use Uber in San Jose!

  • Our tour guide, Manuel was very good and informative. This is a walking tour. Manuel not only explained about the various beers that we tasted, but also pointed out and told us about different places of interest as we were walking.

  • Very informative tour. The beers were awesome. I recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys craft beer. I was the only one on the tour and that made it even better, no having to worry about others. It really felt like I was hanging out with someone I knew for some great craft brews. When I go back to CR, I will do this tour again. Great job Manuel! Also great job Urban Adventures! I really enjoyed it. Pura Vida!

  • Our tour guide was fantastic. He was friendly and informative. Both my partner and I had a great time. I would recommend this tour to anyone coming to San Jose.

  • Manuel was awesome. He had a lot of great insights and information to share about San Jose, as well as a unique perspective on craft beer he brews his own. The beer we tasted and locations we visited were all fun, great and unique. Manuel was not only kind enough to help two of our tourmates hail a cab to make sure they were safely on their way back to their hotel, but also hung out with us for a beer and then walked us back to our car. Overall the tour was great and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
