Meet your guide at your hotel prior to your selected pickup time. Get on-board Costa Rica’s first European-style double decker bus and begin your 5-hour tour of San Jose, the capital city of Costa Rica.

Learn about San Jose through live commentary from your guide as you drive through the city’s neighborhoods and past its major landmarks. Seats on the upper deck of the bus provide panoramic views, while seats inside the bus feature wide viewing windows and street-level sights.

Break up the drive with two walking tours that allow for a closer look at some of San Jose’s most important sites, including the National Stadium, Central Market, and Braulio Carrillo City Park.

This tour also includes a welcome cocktail and marimba folk music performance on the bus. Tour upgrades available for those wishing to eat a traditional Costa Rican lunch or dinner onboard the bus, as there is no free time built into itinerary for meals on your own.

Great trip, balance between stops, nice little restaurant for lunch even if overpriced and charged for a bottle of water price would of been third in a Mall. Guides were interesting and knew the history well. Would of been nice to have a map showing the highlights and stops.

A nice tour and good way to get acclimated to the city quickly. Saw the major sights and the tour guide was ok. The lunch was nothing special - just at a local cafeteria. I would suggest the tour without lunch but that was not an option and I had to pay the 21 extra for a 7 lunch. All and all though I would still recommend this tour on your first day in San Jose,
