The walking tour provides great insight into the culture, history and buildings of San Jose. Our guide, Pablo, was knowledge, enthusiastic and super generous with his time. I only had one day in San Jose but feel I know it well thanks to the tour.

Thanks Bridget! Our tours are designed to get the MOST out of a short time in the city. In a few hours we'll cover more information about day to day life than in a typical nature tour outside the city.

We booked 3 tours in a row: Overview, Artistic and Food. It did not live up to the great sounding descriptions on the company web site. The three together were cheaper than booking individually and only last 3 hours instead of the six if you...More

Hi Geoff, Thank you for the feedback. I will revise with the guide the content reviewed. There is an overlap of information between the different tours so you shouldn't notice a content deficiency when combining. I'm sorry we didn't meet your expectations, and will address...More
