Jorge was great and the tour was amazing! Jorge shared some hidden gems around San Jose and it was great to see the country side and meet the small coffee, chocolate, and beer producers. I would HIGHLY recommend any tour with Jorge! His experience and knowledge were fantastic and he definitely made the day special!
