The guide never showed up and we were told that our booking was for the day before. We can take the blame, maybe we did book for the wrong day. But they never answered the phone number provided. And they never tried contacting us the previous day when our tour was supposedly booked for, never called, never emailed. When we asked for a compromise they flat out told us that they don’t make errors, our loss. Rude and unwilling to take care of their customers. Would absolutely not recommend.

Never showed up, never answered the phone calls, still waiting for a contact, a refund??? The lack of professionalism is absolutely disappointing in such a difficult time for tourism.

Alexandro was warm, knowledgeable, and interesting. Perhaps the best thing about the tour was how he customized it to meet our needs.

Great tour! I went with my husband and 2year old. Very informative tour, comfortable, & fun. As a bonus our tour guide Alejandro was perfect. I highly value customer service and from booking our tour over the phone to our tour guide everyone was awesome, kind, and patient! Definitely a highlight of our trip.

Nice walk. Very interesting details that I would have missed otherwise. Sylvia was very knowledgable and pleasant. There were only five guests on the tour so it was very companionable. We were able to ask all questions and discuss some topics more deeply. All in all, highly recommended.

Silvia provided a very thorough walking tour of San Jose on our first day in the city. She pointed out various historical, artistic and cultural sites while describing their importance to the growth and transition of the city over the years. She also gave us recommendations of other things to do and restaurants to visit during our stay. I highly recommend this experience!

As mentioned by previous reviewers, the tour was a friendly, chatty walkabout. Carla pointed out many interesting places and kept us amused with anecdotes about her own background. Pacing was easy for the group, and the coffee stop and lunch place were very well chosen. We even retraced the tour on our own a day or two later, and went to a concert at the theatre. Nice job! Thanks!

Muy agradecidas con Alejandro por la guía que tuvimos durante el recorrido. Fue una experiencia personalizada donde aprendimos de historia, arquitectura y un poco de gastronomía. Muy contentas con lo vivido y lo recomendamos a quién quiera adquirirlo.
