This tour blew us away, it was FANTASTIC! Adriana (tour guide/owner) was extremely responsive, very friendly and went above and beyond to guarantee I was able to enjoy the day at each stop with all of my food allergies. My group had a blast trying foods we’ve never encountered in the USA before. We LOVED all of the amazing fresh artisan food! Such creativity and detail was put into every single thing we had: vegetarian ceviche, pejibaye balls, chayote, grilled meats/fish, coffee, dessert of grilled plantain with turmeric ice cream with beer caramel, beers and wine just to name a few! Foodie Tours of Costa Rica have done their homework to discover unique, diverse, off the beaten track places to really highlight the farm to table food scene of San Jose. Walking to each restaurant was cool to see the neighborhood or stop to have Adriana point out different plants or vegetables along the way. We would absolutely recommend this tour again and again. I look forward to seeing Adriana the next time I’m in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

This was my second time with Adriana and Foodie Tours. I did a combo of specialty coffee and chocolate making. I learned a lot about local producers, traditions, processes, etc. and everything was delicious. Also Adriana had many great suggestions for cafes (yay to espresso at La Cabra Negra) and restaurants and she went above and beyond to help me solve a travel problem. She has a great demeanor, wonderful connections and excellent taste. I can not recommend her highly enough!

Adriana picked us up at our hotel and drove to our first stop. We had so much fun all evening at each of the 4 locations we went to. We started with coffee tasting and education, then vegan appetizers, main course and last cocktails. It was the funnest thing we did in the city of San Jose. I would do it again!

Adriana plans and executes a remarkable evening of food and drink. From a fabulous coffee tasting—and education—to farm-to-table starters, a main course at a hidden gem of a restaurant, and custom cocktails at the coolest cocktail bar ever, the evening was perfect. Even if you have only one night in San Jose, don’t bother searching for a restaurant and take the foodie tour instead. And did I mention how much fun we had with Adriana? You couldn’t ask for a better host! She’s knowledgeable, incredibly kind, and passionate about food.
