    The tour bus drove around so quickly that we often couldn't get photos even out of the window of monuments, buildings, churches etc so there wasn't much point in the tour. They also completely missed several major monuments like the Liberty monument and the Children's Museum. The ride itself was very short as well.

    Great highlights and overview; Walking tour gave essence of local living. Awesone lunch and very knowledgeable guide... Highly recommend!

    Be prepared to spent 40 min to 75 min on the mini bus collecting passengers from hotels...the more hotels, the longer the ride. Once assembled at the soccer field, the tour on the red double decker bus begins. Sergio our guide was most impressive of his history knowledge. From then on it was a good tour. Hits the highlights of old San José. Enjoyed the Gold Museum.

    Everything about this particular tour was outstanding. From receiving an email advising me of what time was pick up at the hotel and having them show up early was fantastic. The guide himself provided us with plenty of information about every stop and was not rushing at all. Forgot his name. The musician on the bus was great as well. Overall everything was great. Highly recommend this tour

    I was unsure how this tour was going to be but it exceeded my and my family’s expectations. Gabriel our tour guide had a fun engaging personality. He shared snippets of history, art, stories of Costa Rica and cultural items with zest. We covered a lot of ground between the bus and walking but it was just the right amount of both. I have food allergies and the tour was very accommodating with them. Seeing San Jose was wonderful!!

    This is more a bus tour than a bus walking tour. Maybe a little over priced .The tour leader was
    Knowledgeable . My pick up time was between 0900-1000 but the actual time was 1025. .This is a large window of wasted time

    Guide and tour were great. I was a little disappointed at the amount of English spoken by the guide. There were 24 English speaking people and 3 Spanish speaking people. The majority of the speech spoken by the guide was Spanish.

    I liked it, easy start and learn about the city. Many options to choose for lunch. Very polite and knowegeble English guide.
