About Scott's Walking Tours
Very personal off the beaten path tours.You don't have to look like a tourist. Get to explore the areas the locals enjoy and be free to go with the flow. Food markets, historic buildings, Train stations and just overall interesting spots. Allow me to share the San Jose I love. No group is too small. I can meet you at your hotel or At the John Lennon statue in Plaza de Las Artes (Chinatown) in front of Iglesia La Soledad. Feel free to call or message me about pricing and group size and duration.I work in real time with texts. If I am available I will do last minute tours. I do not go into details of history. Dates, names of famous historic figures. If this is what you are looking for, I am not your guy. I want you to visit locations with me for the experience. Getting to know the barrios and customs with some interesting trivia and not so touristy pursuits. Enjoy the people , the sites and pet some cats. Smell some flowers. Optomise your city experience. Share my love of this city now

I was fortunate to have a one on one session with Scott. When I arrived we had a cup of coffee and had a great time getting to know each other. We then headed out into several neighborhoods with Scott pointing out some nice photo opportunities. It was a nice walk and I have some nice photos from the tour. I’ve been on many activities when in Costa Rica but for me this was the best and I feel like I made a new friend in Scott. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I just did the photo tour with Scott. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the area, he is also a professional photographer that has a way of simplifying the art for beginners such as myself in a way that is understandable but also immediately improves your skills so you can use them immediately to capture better pictures. He is also a great guy with many compelling stories and is passionate about photography and San Jose in general. I highly recommend this tour to anyone considering it, you won't be disappointed.

Why is a Gringo giving tours of a city he doesn’t belong in? Americans think they know better then the natives. No habla Español. Save you $

Scott was a great guide with his friendly and laid back personality. He showed us parts of San Jose we would never had found otherwise and told us stories about Costa Rican life as we went along. He was great with our two children and adapted the tour for our daughter as she'd injured her ankle so couldn't walk for miles. He took us to a fantastic cafe for a late lunch and we got an impromptu cacao demonstration there. Great afternoon!
