This tour was incredible! Angel was so kind and knowledgeable about San Jose. We made two cocktails that were both delicious. The home cooked meal was fresh and really showed us what Costa Rican cuisine was all about. Would highly recommend if you are spending some time in San Jose!

Great evening tour with culture
Andrea_M, Feb 2024
We really enjoyed this experience and it was a good way to see the city without being overwhelmed. The cocktail course and dinner were the highlights and loved how personal it was. The only thing that would have made it better was to have had time to shop in the marketplace but still a great time!

The historical tour was...
Wendy_B, Feb 2024
The historical tour was great. The market was great. The meal was fantastic. Perhaps a bit too much walking though. We were under the impression we were going to help prepare the food and drinks. Our tour guide Oscar was very nice!

Not Bad but Not Great
Deborah_J, Feb 2024
The meet up location and walking tour was good. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and spoke good English. The tour of the central market would have been much better with some samples of bread and cheese. Instead we just saw the items. The cocktails were pretty good and the coffee shop where we had them was nice. Would have been nice to add some coffee samples since we were in the coffee shop. The food was good but the portions were small and the chef did not come out and describe the dish tasting notes, origin or history. Dessert was average. Beverages served at dinner were beer or sangria. Nice but not great.
Fantastic

Great Tour, highly recommend it :-)
Sue_S, Jan 2024
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of San Jose. Our guide, Daniel, was excellent, he was easy to understand, very knowledgeable, interesting and friendly. We started off in the market, it was great to have someone explain the different stalls. Daniel then showed us how to make a couple of traditional (and tasty) Costa Rican cocktails. We then had a wander through the 'nice' part of the city, we definitely wouldn't have been aware of this if we hadn't done the tour. Dinner was held in an authentic restaurant, great food. I'm so pleased we chose to do the tour, excellent value for money and very memorable. Thank you Daniel :-)

Great Experience
Jack_O, Jan 2024
The tour is fun, informative and a bargain. You see and learn about San Jose and Costa Rica during an easy walk, are served traditional Costa Rican cocktails with demonstrations of how they're made and finish with a delicious four course Costa Rican dinner with beverage pairings. Daniel was our guide and he was great - full of information, funny and helpful. Well worth the time and money.

A different kind of tour
Nipun_N, Jan 2024
A unique and casual experience around the Central Market area in San Jose. We had a pleasant walk with Andrea and the charming Daniel - taking in some local facts and sights along busy streets. The sojourn at the bar ( sloth coffee place ) was fun with a Chili water and Coffee based cocktails . We got to have dinner with a fun crowd in a relaxed ambiance - overall a great way to spend 3-4 hours before a long flight back home. Pura Vida Costa Rica !

Brilliant experience
RosemaryJose_P, Jan 2024
The food and the beer that was served to us was excellent. We covered a fair amount of the city walking as well and that was quite impressive. The house we had our dinner at was very well kept and cute.

Adventurous tour of San Jose with an amazing dinner
Robert_B, Jan 2024
We enjoyed the walking tour of the city that showcased the market, and parks of San Jose. Interesting stop at the "witchcraft booth" where we learned about some of the customs and rituals of the locals. The cocktail class was fun and hands on. Dinner was a shining example of Costa Rican cuisine. Highly recommend.
