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

Very informative and interesting! Scott’s full of interesting stories and is really good at helping you find the real San Jose, not just the tourist spots. Do this!

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!

Scott walked with us around some very nice and fancy neighborhood in San José. The center of the town is definitely the less interesting. So if you have 2-3 hours to spend, don’t hesitate! Scott is definitely worth it!

Scott is a great tour guide and the walking tour was a great way to see the city. We eft late in the afternoon and got to see the city at dusk. Some things are best seen in low light. I highly recommend Scott and his walking tour.
