Our guide was amazing. The tour group was very small and the attention she was able to pay us all was wonderful. I felt like I learned so much from her about her city. It was great having a tour guide that was around my age to tell me the places that would interest me the most- being relate-able is always a big thing when taking a tour. I think our tour guide was top notch, and I wish her nothing but the best!

Really fun and interesting tour. For anyone that wants to see the hip and happening side of San Jose - and who enjoys a quality beer or 10 - this is the tour for you! Vinicio was an excellent guide, he showed us a great time and was full of knowledge and passion

First time to San Jose and first time to book with Urban Adventures. We booked Costa Rica Pura Vida Experience tour on Aug17. The tour guide showed up 10 minutes later than the pickup time. We walked in downtown San Jose and he showed and told us the buildings and history about Costa Rica. We had two chances taking the local bus which is a very good experience. We were lucky we did not hit the traffic. We had a traditional lunch at a local restaurant. Next we visited a masquerade family. Overall, the itinerary of the tour is good and please be prepared that the tour will be last longer than 4 hours.

This was a great tour. Our guide was very enthusiastic and we learned lots about the local craft beer scene in San Jose. Was great to see new neighbourhoods in the city that we hadn't reached on our own.
