What people are saying about San José Province

It was an absolute pleasure to spend the Sunday with our guide, Paul. Not only did we visit the highlights of San Jose but he also drove us to Cartago to show us the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles and the St. James the Apostle Parish Ruins. His english is perfect, as well as his knowledge. He gives a lot of extra information about the way of living in Costa Rica.

Our guide was outstanding. It was Sunday in San Jose, therefore our tour options were somewhat limited but he found great things for us to do and he was an absolute pleasure to be with for four hours.
