The day flew by so fast. My guide, Angel, was so passionate about his live of Costa Rica, and of San Jose that it was contagious. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat. I recommend Urban Tours very highly. Go early or plan to stay later to do some shopping in Central Market.

The guide was very knowledgeable with great English. We went to the market and tasted fruits, ate sorbet and empanadas. They accommodated me as i dont eat meat. Then we went to the Theatre, park and chocolate tasting. Was a great tour.

The tour guy was very professional and the tour was amazing. I highly recommend to go to this tool for the first time been San Jose.

Very interesting, our guide Malo was very good with local stories. A good selection of foods and drinks to try.

Very knowledgeable and great and helping locate us!
