    Nice way to spend 3-4 hours downtown San Jose
    Leonard_L, Feb 2024
    It was just myself and three of my friends on this tour. Mariana, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and shared a lot of the history of Costa Rica. San Jose is no New York, London or Paris, so do not expect to be blown away by the sights. Rather than walk on your own downtown, better to have a local guide and you learn some stuff in the process. Also, some areas of downtown are not recommended for tourists, so be careful if on your own. The tour also included a stop at a bar for drinks (a cold Imperial, local beer) and a tasty lunch at a local cafe. A guided tour of the National Theatre was included as well, very interesting. As an fyi, we used Uber all over the city, no issues.

    Mariana was very friendly, fun and quite knowledgable. She extended the length of the tour by over an hour to ensure we had the guided tour of the National Theatre. This was in Spanish when I was hoping it would be in English. The main tour was advertised in English and Mariana kept talking to one of the group in Spanish when this person definitely spoke English. This felt like I was being excluded. There were some gaps in Mariana’s knowledge which she didn’t attempt to find the answer. I found it distracting that she was occasionally texting during the tour.
