This tour was awesome! We tasted several authentic Costa Rican fruit, tamales, empanadas, ice cream, and coconut water.Dinora was our guide and she was very knowledgeable, patient, and accommodating. I would highly recommend this tour. We also toured the theatre, Catholic Church, monuments, and had a small coffee workshop. Touring the food markets and learning the history was definitely nice. I’m attaching several pictures

Daniel was a fantastic guide through downtown San Jose. I especially loved walking through the different markets, tasting different local produce, and meeting the farmers. Making empanadas and coffee at the last stop was fantastic. Highly recommend

This is a great tour to introduce you to downtown San Jose. It was fun and interactive way to learn about some of the history of Costa Rica while enjoying the local treats! Dynora was knowledgeable and open to answering questions- good luck with the rest of your studies!

I took this tour day one of my trip and was impressed with the experience. Dynora the guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. Eric offers excellent service and coffee at Mr. Sloth’s Coffee Shop. Could not recommend any more highly 😎

This was a great introduction to San Jose. Nice balance of treats, key sites, and even a little cooking at the end. We loved the market and getting recommendations there so we could go back and explore at our leisure. The guide was knowledgeable and very pleasant.

Fun way to walk around the markets, eat some goood food, and not feel to rushed. Oscar was great and so was the food. A great deal more chill than other tours I've been on which were much more go go go. Would recommend highly.

More a tour + local dinner than cooking class. Our guide Angel was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and passionate about Costa Rican history. We were able to stop by a local coffee shop to taste coffee from a local plantation. The food and drinks were delicious and I recommend this tour as the first thing you do when in San Jose so you can get acquainted with the city as well as have potential tourists to connect with while visiting.
