I recommend this tour. The guide spoke English and Spanish; however his English was difficult to understand at times as he spoke very fast-he seemed very rushed. We saw some interesting sites and the trip length was perfect with just the right number of stops.

Terrible
RatnaRaj_B, Jun 2019
The pick IP was 30 minutes late (however apologetic call was received in the hotel citing traffic and larger group pax to be collected). The tour has hardly 10 pax. The bus broke down and kept for one hour waiting until it is fixed. Altogether out of 3 hour scheduled tour, 1.5 hours were lost. Yet they completed the tour on time skipping many sites or not giving due time to those visited. Dinner was included. It was arranged in a third class road side restaurant. Frustrating experience.
Enjoy our night
DIEDERIK_J, May 2019
We had a nice look around the city at night with the guide who have lots of knowledge about the city of San Jose...Nice dinner too!
Paseo

Una forma diferente de conocer la ciudad del dia a dia, la comida muy sabrosa. La pase bien en el recorrido. Recomendable cuando no se tiene mucho tiempo para hacer un paseo
