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.
