Urban Adventure's slogan is : Best Day ever! and boy or boy, do I agree. So, I am just gonna say it: Best day ever!!! Angel who was my tour guide is just the most thoughtful, dedicated and encyclopedic guide I have ever had. He knows his stuff and he delivers it in a way that sparks your curiosity and inspires organic conversation. The ride on the train to Cartago was scenic and peaceful. I really loved the bike ride around the quaint city of Cartago. The market and the palace ruins were the highlights of the afternoon along with meeting the genial Rolando and Angelita who make the most delectable corn and beef Empanadas. Angel really know's how to take care of his guests: taking numerous picture of me, a battery charger at the ready, offering his jacket when it got too cold. Just a great guy I have to tell you. I totally recommend this tour and Urban Adventures.
Angel was an excellent tour guide! He was very outgoing, informative and hospitable! He answered many questions, taught us Spanish words and phrases, and was very kind and considerate! We took a very fun and exciting train ride to Cartago, rode bikes through the city and then visited the very beautiful Bascilia of our Lady of the Angels. We then took a tour of the church museum and went to the gift shop. We then visited the lovely Santiago Apostol Parish Ruins and ate an authentic Costa Rican lunch in the market. After taking an auto bus back to San Jose we visited The Casa Del Caca Cafe and tasted very delicious cocoa and chocolate. With Angel as our guide, this was an outstanding tour!
I enjoyed the train ride to Cartago. The Cartago market and the opportunity to experience authentic empanadas was wonderful. The bike ride was refreshing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.
Amazing is right - wonderful day spent with an excellent tour guide, Vinicio! Did a train ride, bicycle ride around Cartago, then a local bus ride back to San Jose. Got to visit the local market in Cartago, as well as the wonderful cathedral there. Vinicio is a wealth of knowledge and information about the area, history and culture, and his love for his country is extremely evident throughout the tour. What a lovely experience for my first time to Costa Rica! A special bonus was sampling thebest empanadas in Cartago made fresh by Rolando and Angelina in the market!
Natalie my tour guide was exceptional. She took me around to a few sites in San Jose before our very scenic train ride through the country side to Cartago. She shared with my a local desert on the way and we talked about the culture of Costa Rica. Once in Cartago, we had a brief visit to a local art gallery and then went on our way on a beautiful bike ride through the city center. Afterwards, we visited the local market and we visited various stalls.. the best being the most delicious bean empanadas I've ever had. Natalie was knowledgeable, funny, engaging, helpful and an excellent tour guide and host.
My wife and I had a great time on this trip. Juergen,our guide was well informed and shared all his knowledge about Costa Rica. We loved his enthusiasm and love for his country. When we arrived in Cartago, our bikes were waiting for us. We also met Eric the owner of Urban adventures who dropped us back in our hotel in Eskazu. I would highly recommend this trip as well as other trips organized by Urban. The trip lasted just under 5 hours and we had rest of the day to check out San Jose and other points of interest. Pura Vida!
Bring water!!! Our tour guy was excellent! He had so much knowledge and was so proud about his country it was great. The ride was a little intense but worth it, views were incredible.
This was an amazing tour that allowed me to learn about and see many parts of Costa Rican culture e.g., commerce, religion, transportation, food, education, social structure, political climate, history, and language. The guide Jurgen and his assistant were tremendously helpful and communicated well in English. They were even curious to learn about the U.S. After a little while, I honestly felt like I was hanging out with my buddies. This trip is for anyone who is not dissuaded by a small amount of physical activity. Thanks for making this a great adventure guys!
This tour was great!!! You will feel like a local, first the train ride and then the bus ride! The bike riding was awesome!!! We had a lot of fun!! The church at Cartago is beautiful!
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of San Jose and Cartago. He was an excellent guide and made sure that we took full advantage of the rich history of the people of Costa Rica and explored all of the wonderful sights. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting San Jose, Costa Rica.
