This tour was a mess. First, it was supposed to be a walking tour of La Fortuna, but they picked us up and drove us around for half an hour before we got to the town, which was only 4 km from our hotel. When we finally got to town, we were supposed to have coffee in a local cafe, but the cafe employees didn't seem to know anything about that. The guide sent us off to look in the gift shop while he made a phone call. Then we left with no explanation. We walked about two blocks and he offered to take us into a chocolate shop. He showed us inside, then waited outside the door while we shopped. The employees greeted us but didn't say anything else, leading us to believe this wasn't really a stop on the tour. Then the guide took us to the church for a few minutes. When we left, it had begun to rain, and the guide seemed to simply give up, so he called the driver to take us to the cooking class portion of the tour--half an hour early.

The cooking class was scheduled to start at 5 p.m. but the other participants didn't arrive until after 5:30, so in total, we sat around waiting for the class to start for over an hour! If the woman leading the class hadn't been great and the food delicious, this review would have been zero stars.

I don't know what happened, but this tour was a disorganized mess. The tour guide should have been able to provide us with an explanation of what was going on or improvised a new plan when things went wrong at the cafe. The rain shouldn't have been a factor at all. We were prepared for rain and so was the guide.

Thank you so much for letting us know. It is true, that day we did have quite a hiccup. The stop we make for the cultural part and "tarde de café" at the coffee shop we usually use was unexpectedly closed and the guide tried to find a solution, but it appears it wasn't up to expectations. We are very sorry about that! La Fortuna has a fascinating and vibrant cultural history and we wish our guide would have brought that to life for you. We have since made important changes and clients have come away very happy with this innovative cultural tour. And we are happy you enjoyed the cooking class. The cooking class is super fun and interactive and our cooks work hard to show off their delicious cuisine so you can try your hand at it at home! Again, we appreciate your comments and we hope you come back to give us another try.
