Great tour! Memorable and special!

This tour was operated by Destiny Travel and guided by Señor Oscar. Oscar performed an excellent job as he provided me with both substantive and exciting information about the city, country, region, architectural, cultural, historical, sports and other aspects of life in Costa Rica. Oscar is a very experienced tourism specialist and is able to tune the tour according to the customer’s needs and interests — in my case I wanted to combine both guided ride and walking around historical/cultural places on my own and I got plenty of both. Also, I hoped to get a chance to see more art related places, and I was able to do that too. On top of it, Oscar was very attentive to my lunch tastes and preferences, and without expecting it I had a chance to choose from many tempting lunch options and select an exquisite traditional lunch. The tour was just half a day but very memorable and allowed me to discover many new and interesting places and things, while at the same time feeling like a welcomed friend. In the end, my tour guide and I agreed to watch the upcoming soccer home game (on live TV in my case) happening in San Jose and support Costa Rican team in its strife to get to the World Cup. Gracias por todo Señor Oscar y Destiny Travel ¡y buena suerte!

I was very disappointed by this...

I was very disappointed by this tour. I was informed very late the night before that the tour was going to be an hour later than the originally scheduled time. As a result, we were waiting for a while before we realized they were coming 1 hour later. The tour was supposed to stop at 5 places and only stopped at 2. The rest we drove by which is not what is described in the tour information. The one place we really wanted to stop was the arts and crafts market. We were not told it was going to close at 4 until it was too late to do anything about it. We never got to go to the one place we really wanted to see. This tour was supposed to be 4-5 hours and it was only 3 hours. Bottled water was supposed to be provided and it was not. For 60/person, this was not worth the cost. I would not recommend this tour to anyone without significant changes.
