Pamela A.United States
We can't say enough good things about our tour with Jorge. His knowledge of San Jose and Costa Rica overall is extensive, his English is excellent, and his demeanor kind, thoughtful and fun. Our experience with him was fulfilling, fun, comfortable and safe. His tour exceeded our expectations and he went beyond the call of duty to make it so. And, we all feel we now have a new friend in San Jose! We highly recommend him without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Pamela for taking the time to write such a kind comment, I really appreciate it! It was a pleasure to meet you all and take you on tour and I am glad to read that you enjoyed it. Hope to see you guys again. You do have a friend in San Jose. Pura Vida!

George OverendUnited States
Jorge provided an excellent city tour of San Jose! I have used Tours by Locals guides more than 25 times the past three years. ALL have been excellent, so I hesitate to say any one guide was "the best." However, I am eager to say that Jorge did a superb job and is as good as any guide we have had anywhere and I recommend him to others without hesitation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words George, I appreciate you have taken the time to leave a review. I enjoyed your company very much during our city tour and I am happy to read that you liked the experience in San Jose. It was a pleasure to meet you and Carol. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip. Pura Vida!
Peter BlackUnited States
Jorge was right on time and picked us up at the Marriott about 8-10 miles out of San Jose. We enjoyed the walk around San Jose and found Jorge very knowledgeable and up beat about San Jose and Costa Rica.. A very pleasant morning walk and tour around downtown San Jose. Jorge joined us for lunch as well as a coffee and tucked us away in a cab to get back to the Marriott. A very very positive experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Peter for reviewing my tour. I enjoyed the company of both of you very much and I am glad to read that you had a good time during our tour around San Jose.
Janet MurphyUnited States
Jorge was an excellent tour guide. He took us to many interesting places in San Jose, provided us with excellent history and facts about Costa Rica and took us to a wonderful pottery making factory in Santa Anna. We really enjoyed our tour and would recommend Jorge
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Janet thank you very much for your comment, I really appreciate it. I am glad to read that you enjoyed your day in San José and Santa Ana. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family. Kind regards and Pura Vida!
Scott BaymillerUnited States
Jorge was very accomodating to our requests. We liked the central market and jade museum. His English speaking is excellent. He helped us with other recommendations for the rest of our trip. The tour did involve a little walking, but we had an 84 yo on the tour that did fine.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr. Baymiller, Thank you very much for your review. I had a really nice time with all of you. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.
Belma RodriguezUnited States
We ended up doing the La Fortuna waterfalls and a tour of the city of La Fortuna instead of San Jose City tour. I appreciate Jorge's flexibility and his willingness to adjust the time of the tour when requested. His knowledge of the area is extensive and he made our group feel very comfortable about asking anything that was not covered. Very personable and pleasant and has a positive attitude.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback Mrs. Rodriguez, I appreciate it. We had a great time in La Fortuna indeed. I truly enjoyed meeting all your family. P U R A V I D A !
