We went on this tour with Angel as our guide and had a great time. We also learned a lot, which was an unexpected bonus. The tour combines eating, markets and history together flawlessly. Even though we have been to Costa Rica many times and have a home nearby, this was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. This tour is definitely worth the time and money. Thanks for a great time, Angel and Urban Tours.

My wife and I did this tour with Angel today. We had a great time in our group getting to know others and also talking to Angel. We learned a lot about San Jose and Angel provided great insight, details, great food and experience. We will gladly seek out Angel again for another tour like this. Thanks for a great time!

I was not expecting to have such a great experience as we did! We learned so much history and ate a lot of typical Costa Rican dishes. Highly recommended! The tour guide Angel (I think I remember correctly) was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Our tour guide Angel was great, it felt we learned a lot in a short time. We were a group of 12 which I think was the max (including 2 kids who seemed to enjoy the tour too). We were given a large variety of small bites throughout the tour- including lots of types of fruit, different savoury costa rican must tries, as well as coffee to finish. The caldozas were a highlight and we were definitely nicely full by the end. We booked the trip on the day, very last minute via trip advisor, everything was smooth and the start point was easy to find. There were no hidden costs and we felt we were being shown around local vendors which benefit from the tour. It came across that sustainability was at the heart of the tour. Really nice way to spend 3hrs in San Jose. Thanks Angel!

This was a truly amazing tour and one of the highlights of our trip. Daniel took us through markets and places where turists seldom visits. He was both friendly and knowledgeable, and during the tour it felt like he truly had fun in sharing his knowledge.

We got to taste plenty of fresh fruits and other local treats from the markets. We can't recommend this tour enough, it's fun for the whole family.

Had a great tour around the San José Markets tasting fruits and national dishes in a Costa rican manner. Angel was a great guide through the city.
Start the tour with an empty stomach as you are offered plenty of foods and get to make your own empanada in the end.

I loved this tour. Dino is a very bright, energetic and thoughtful guide who clearly loves this wonderful city. I felt the tour blended culture, architecture, history and food fabulously and three hours was the perfect amount of time. I highly recommend everyone coming in to San Jose take this fun and delicious tour.
