I was so lucky to have Gladys as my guide , In fact could hardly believe my luck . I was the only person booked on the tour , I’m an avid Birder on the last days of a mammoth Birding trip , Gladys is a biology student who’s also very interested in birds , naturally where ever you go there are birds , starting at our meeting point the National Theatre , after explaining the history of the theatre and the story behind the marble sculptures Gladys identifies the Parrakeets in The trees outside . And so it went on , such an informative tour , into a local bus up into the hills for a traditional Costa Rican lunch and a visit to the happy mask maker . A great day . Highly recommend this tour .
The day flew by so fast. My guide, Angel, was so passionate about his live of Costa Rica, and of San Jose that it was contagious. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat. I recommend Urban Tours very highly. Go early or plan to stay later to do some shopping in Central Market.
Ernesto, our guide, was great, organized, kept us on track, and watched for pick-pockets. The masks was the highlight. I'm glad we did the central market with this tour, because on our own we would've wandered for hours not seeing the good stuff.
The guide was very knowledgeable with great English. We went to the market and tasted fruits, ate sorbet and empanadas. They accommodated me as i dont eat meat. Then we went to the Theatre, park and chocolate tasting. Was a great tour.
The Sloth and rescued animals encounter was amazing. I loved the animals. Juan our driver was very knowledgeable of the animals. We drove thru Greci and spent time in the Ox cart factory in Sarchi very cultural.
