We booked a combination architecture and art tour which took about 3 hours. Our guide was Mariel and she was excellent. The walk included many areas of the central city and included a view of the parks, historic buildings, museums, and art in San Jose. We learned about the history, current political situation, and the life of the people. Mariel was able to answer our questions and shared her knowledge. The walk was an easy one and the pace was perfect. We felt that the time was well spent and included more information than was available in a more structured general tour.

Thank Mary K

We started our visit to SJ with a talking tour of the city. If you like to get in the middle of things and see things you might miss from a car take the 3hrs to walk the city with Stacy. $38/person

Was able to book the tour online the night before. I took a Caravan tour of Costa Rica. It was ok but they only drove thru San Jose. I leaned so much from this tour.

Thank you so much for the review, it's nice to hear that walking is a better strategy than driving through the city!

At the last minute my husband found this company doing a google search. He was connected to Stacey and they connected like they were old friends. We had a 3 hour tour with Mariel and it was wonderful. We learned more in the 3 hours than we did with others guides over the two weeks we were there.

We enjoyed a very pleasant tour with Mariel. We would highly recommend the tour. Mariel told us much about the history of San Jose and explained a bit about the current presidential election campaigns. It was all very interesting! Be sure to dress appropriately for the the warm sun and 2 hours on foot. Mariel also recommended a great restaurant that was just what we were looking for after our walk.
