“Great tour brought San Jose to life for us”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

After reading in tour guides that we should skip San Jose, it was nice to take a part of our one day in the city to get to know the history and understand the capital of Costa Rica better. Stacey was great and took us around the downtown area giving information on history, buildings and architecture, as well as some modern touches and political stories. We felt safe in the city, and certainly recommend her as an informative guide.

“Birds of a feather, flock together”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

Staying in Costa Rica for 4 months and wanted a walking tour to familiarize ourselves with San Jose. There were 6 of us on the tour with Stacy, she was patient and answered everyone's questions and gave us insight to things that only someone who lives there would know. It's fun to meet other people with the same passion for travel. We will definitely go on another tour with Stacy when we return to San Jose before our trip is up.

“Fun and Informative Tour”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

It was fun to actually meet Stacey after reading reviews about her business and tours. She customized a 3 hour tour for us that involved the Birds Nest tour and the Artist Bird tour. Stacey did a wonderful job of telling us the history of San Jose, explaining the architecture, the culture and taking us to some fun Art Galleries. I would recommend her to anyone who will be in San Jose and wants to see the city.

“Walking tour of San Jose”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Stacey did a wonderful job. She customized a 5 hour tour that totally met our wants and desires.
She is a wealth of knowledge and is well worth the time and money.
A must do for your time in San Jose. She has lived in San Jose and is a welth of knowledge for all those thinking of moving to Costa Rica.

“Informational!”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

I always enjoy walking tours ran by either volunteer or individuals. I'm glad that I found Stacey in Costa Rica. She provides you with lots of information that a regular tour doesn't provide. If you're the type of traveler who wants to get insights in addition to taking pictures, do check out this one. The walking also gives you ample time to appreciate the place you visit, and immerse yourself into the environment.
