"This tour was perfect for us. We were comfortable biking in a city and around cars. there were some narrow spots, cobblestones, and these precipitous gutters at some points but if you're used to riding in a city around cars you will be fine. The bikes were in good shape, brakes and gears worked well and they gave us all helmets. The best part of this tour was how much of the city you got to see and the tasty street food near the hall of justice. The guide was fantastic! Really knowledgeable and nice. He really loved showing the city to all of us and we saw so much more of it than we would have walking. We even got the privilege of seeing a sloth in the city, which was a real TREAT! Do not hesitate, if you like bike tours this is the one for you."..."

Chocolate Tour & Baldi Hot Springs. Private Tour from San Jose
"We loved this very informative private tour. We'll presented and the chocolate making process was explained completely. We got to taste the chocolate that we saw being made... It was yummy... We all had our own spoon and a very nice lady would drizzle some onto our spoon then you could add what flavours you like. My fav was sea salt and chilli. The Baldi hot springs part of the tour was slightly disappointing but only because we had been to the Tabacon hot springs before. There was a lot more walking involved at the Baldi and my husband has walking difficulties so not ideal. Tabacon hot springs are a classier place. We were glad we chose the private tour.. It was more personable than being on a bus with 30 or so people. We could stop for a break when we wanted.... Coffee or bathroom... And our driver Gerado gave us lots of interesting information about Costa Rica. Overall this tour was excellent value for money and very enjoyable"..."
