On the day we met Erick our group was intimate with only three guests. It make the tour very personal. Erick was very informative. He gave us the history of the development of San Jose through the 3 hour walking tour. It was fantastic and interesting. We walked to great spots for where our guide discussed coffee, fruits, architecture, herbal remedies and the people of Costa Rica. The bites of food and produce were a cute surprise and delicious. I highly recommend taking this tour of San Jose. Zahra
