    Enrique was a very knowledgeable and interesting tour guide. I really appreciated his presentation so much. He had a lot of knowledge and information to share, and did it in a way that I could absorb it and understand it, as well as enjoy it. I highly recommend this tour.

    Emil is a fantastic guide!

    The tour almost got cancelled due to weather and others ended up cancelling or rescheduling, but I joined and Emil ended up giving me a private tour.

    We toured mostly east from the meet point to Barrio Escalante, which is well worth the walk! A beautiful area with good restaurants serving excellent food.

    My big thanks goes to Emil. Wise beyond his years, he is extremely knowledgeable and is perfectly fluent in English. I learnt a lot of Costa Rican history from him. He is a clear communicator, friendly and positive.

    We enjoyed the view and city tour from the top of the double decker bus. Rolpho, the guitar player, was cute and entertaining, and we especially enjoyed our time in the central market, cathedral, theater, and national park. The tour guide’s historical description of the National monument was excellent. I was misled by the description of the tour in advance that we were going to the museum. We just drove by. Also, as another review mentioned, we would have loved more time in the market to browse and shop. And my daughter was especially eager to see the actual theater as opposed to just the lobby, but you needed a special guid to get in to see more of the National Theater. The dinner was a good typical Costa Rican fare though my family especially enjoyed the breaded fish (Sea Bass.) All in all, we appreciated seeing an overview of San Jose though it felt a little rushed and formulaic.

    Jerry was knowledgeable. It was him and us in a car. A few downfalls. The restaurant only had Spanish menu. Had no idea what I was getting. Jerry tried explaining but was not accurate. No water was given to us as in the what to expect. He took us to a private shop which was us and the shop owners which was uncomfortable to purchase something. We are not shoppers so didn’t appreciate that. Otherwise to see the city was a very private tour and was informational.

    We loved loved this tour from start to finish. Even with covid restrictions, Jorge found limited entry museums for us to visit and explore. He was knowledgeable of the city's history as well as, the country's. We found the political and military history quite compelling. Ended our day in a trendy, up and coming neighborhood that was perfect for a late lunch and libations. Definitely recommend for anyone who appreciates small, personal tours.

    Interesting tour with a very able guide providing a timely and competent service. Car was clean, well maintained and well driven , coffee farm tour was conducted by The Owner’s staff and was very informative. Lunch was provided at a local roadhouse in the company of the guide which made for a pleasant one on one discussion.

    Guide didn’t show up. The tour was cancelled 30mins after it was meant to start, only after I tried reaching out to figure out what was happening.

    "San José: Guided City Bus Tour With Lunch & Welcome Drink" was excellent, with driver Ivan and host Jordan. I even had email access problems, and the Get-your-guide service quickly responded. The guide was bilingual, as half the visitors preferred Spanish. We saw main parts of San Jose, and had an excellent lunch.
    The guide was very knowledgeable, and spent a lot of time explaining things to us.
