Estabon was our guide. He was able to explain a lot of the history of Costa Rica and it's landmarks to us. He also knew a lot about the culture and was able to answer any questions we had. The dinner was wonderful. Every single item they brought took the table was tasty, including the Sangria. It was a great way to get to know the city. The only downside was it was difficult to find the exact location to meet. Perhaps there should be a flag or something.
We had a wonderful time with our guide Eric. He gave us fantastic insights into the cultural and historical background of Costa Rica and the capital. the tour opens your eyes and was one of our highlights during our tour through Panama and Costa Rica. The restaurant is outstanding. It is not the typical and simple tourist food, but very good and refined cuisine.
The tour was very informative and really great. We were a small group with 6 people from all over the world. The sightseeing tour guide leader was very punctual and explained everything well. The food including drinks were really local and good.
Eric is a great tour guide ! I had an awesome time and the dinner was amazing! A tour you should definitely do if your visiting San Jose.
We had a very nice afternoon / evening with our guide. The food was very good!
