Gladys and Ernesto provided tons of cultural and historical context for all the sites we visited in the city core. Great tour of the thriving markets, pedestrian shopping area and significant buildings. At the end of the tour they led us to a great craft brewery-Stieffel - which was a special interest of ours. Highly recommend this tour!

I can't say enough about this tour. It was the most insightful look into a foreign city I've ever had. Eric was amazing. Not only is he knowledgeable beyond measure, he's incredibly nice and funny. We got to hear and see every nook and cranny of the city you normally wouldn't, and had all the fruit, food, and coffee you could take. Even some delicacies and true surprises. You learn so much on this tour and actually see the local side of the city. I urge you to take this tour if you stay in San Jose.

Great intro to San Jose

What a great introduction to San Jose! Started at the main square outside the National Bank. Eric's explanations about San Jose as a city, and how it became what it is today were spot on. We went to have some coffee at a local coffee roaster that still roasts coffee by hand. Continuing onto the Central Market, what a great experience to see where the city gathers to buy fresh produce. Everything from clothing, fish, fruit, and souvenirs made the space colorful and friendly. Wandering through the stalls, we learned more about local remedies and customs, and got to taste an empanada and a variety of fresh fruit. After crossing to the main park for some pictures, we finally ended at a local restaurant that served authentic Costa Rican cuisine, to nibble on some appetizers and gulp down a drink. Would definitely recommend this as a wonderful first look at San Jose!

Eric was awesome! This is a 3 hour journey through San Jose that will take you into the places you’d never find on your own. You get to Try several unique foods and fruit and learn the amazing makeup of Costa Rica. Try guessing what you are eating. It’s very difficult but tasty. We throughly enjoyed it.

If you're going to be in San Jose, then you don't want to miss this tour. We saw a side of the city that you just wouldn't on your own. Eric was an awesome guide with tons of relationships, it felt like he knew everyone on the street. Coffee was amazing, food was delicious, and learning the history and culture was a great way to spend a few hours.

Gladys our tour guide was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed walking through the different markets tasting different foods. Also, learning how Costa Rica tries to preserve its history in just about every aspect of its culture. We definitely loved tasting the natural ice cream and trying to guess the ingredients. Glad we took this tour.
