We did the free walking tour to get a feel for San Jose. Ama our guide did an amazing job telling us about the history of Costa Rica and how it comes to life through the building and statues of past presidents. I learnt so much!! He also walked us through the city mall and the markets. His passion for the city was clear to see. I would highly recommend this tour.

The guide, Ale, was a nice local student that took us around the center and explained part of the history of Costa Rica through the different monuments located in the area. He managed very well a quite unpleasant situation with a fake guide that approached us.

Iva was very knowledgeable and friendly. Prior to beginning the tour she assessed the interest of the group and made references to those interests during the tour, which I thought was a nice touch. It even started pouring rain during the tour and Iva found us a nice spot to wait out the rain, and even used it as a nice time for a group picture. This was one of the best tours that I’ve been on. Would recommend.

We had a few hours to kill in San Jose and found this awesome 3+ hour tour with Eva. She has great knowledge about San Jose’s history and is more than happy to answer any questions you might have about the city and Costa Rica more generally. She does a great job of explaining the architectural political, cultural and culinary details of the city. Had a great experience, highly recommend. Thanks again Eva.

The Free Tour San Jose is EXCELLENT! The tour guide is very knowledgeable, funny, and fun. It is definitely worth your time to be on this tour, whether you are there for one day or several days. It is a great way to get a feel for the vibrant, historical, and beautiful city of San Jose. There is a lot to see in such a small area. I loved the tour!! I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend it. I stayed in San Jose for 4 days and found out about this tour on my last day. If I had known about this tour and how good it was, I would have definitely taken the other tours associated with this one! It's a MUST DO tour!!!
