Gladys was an amazing tour guide! She managed the small group with ease and walked us around to see some of the key sites in San Jose, including a market. Ended with an absolutely delicious dinner. We loved it so much that we ended up going back to that same restaurant two more times before the end of our trip!

Our evening tour of San Jose was expertly guided taking us through central area of San Jose, passing historic monuments, immersing us in a bustling and colorful market, inspiring us with beautiful historic architecture, accounts of Costa Rica's history and topped off by a delicious traditional meal at a lovely restaurant. Service was excellent, group was small and intimate and our guide very informative and gracious.

I loved this tour, our tour guide Angel was super respectful, and knowledgeable! He guided us through rush hour🤣. Which can be hectic, but was not difficult to keep Up! As a person with ADHD, his talking points weren’t boring, he added his own life/meaning to the words! And I really enjoyed the tour, and than when we got to the food. The food was DELICIOUS!!! 100/10 recommend again. Everyone was super kind, would definitely recommend!
