We were only in San Jose for a short two days, and I am so happy that we spent one of those precious days on this incredible food tour! We just started our Costa Rica trip, but I already know this tour will be one of the main highlights of our trip! We had Oscar as our tour guide and he was so informative and fun to talk to. I told him at the end of our tour that it felt like we were eating with a friend, we all just got along so well! I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone taking this tour. My boyfriend is from France and I am from California, so Oscar being trilingual was super interesting! We did the tour in English due to my lack of French, but it’s very uncommon to find someone who can do a tour in 3 languages!!

We didn’t know what to expect going into the tour as it was booked through our travel agent. And boy was it the nicest surprise! We got to try some incredible local food, 6 dishes plus a dessert, lots of good wine, fresh fruit drinks, and a full tasting of some delicious Costa Rica coffee. I hadn’t heard much of Costa Rican food before, but after tasting all this incredible food today I feel like it should definitely be more known! Oscar was very helpful with translating anything in Spanish for us, and also just incredibly informative in general about all the local food and why it’s important in Costa Rica. We learned so much throughout our day. One of my favorite parts of the day was going to a cafe to test out local Costa Rica coffee and learn how exactly to prepare it on the finest level! So much attention to detail and expertise goes into making the perfect cup of coffee. It was so great to try out all the different roasts, we even got a lot of bags to take home - couldn’t resist!

I can confidently say that without this tour I would have no idea about this fine gastronomy restaurants or this neighborhood in general. I am sure most tourists have no idea about this area and would completely miss out on some of the best food Costa Rica has to offer. All in all, if I had any friends of family visiting San Jose I would 100% recommend this food tour! Such a great local experience, with local tour guides. I wish we could do it all again tomorrow!

This tour blew us away, it was FANTASTIC! Adriana (tour guide/owner) was extremely responsive, very friendly and went above and beyond to guarantee I was able to enjoy the day at each stop with all of my food allergies. My group had a blast trying foods we’ve never encountered in the USA before. We LOVED all of the amazing fresh artisan food! Such creativity and detail was put into every single thing we had: vegetarian ceviche, pejibaye balls, chayote, grilled meats/fish, coffee, dessert of grilled plantain with turmeric ice cream with beer caramel, beers and wine just to name a few!



Foodie Tours of Costa Rica have done their homework to discover unique, diverse, off the beaten track places to really highlight the farm to table food scene of San Jose. Walking to each restaurant was cool to see the neighborhood or stop to have Adriana point out different plants or vegetables along the way. We would absolutely recommend this tour again and again. I look forward to seeing Adriana the next time I’m in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

If you pay too much attention to the guidebooks you might conclude that San Jose doesn't have as much of interest as other parts of Costa Rica. The locals are starting to find ways to get the opposite point across now - that San Jose is actually interesting, fun and sophisticated.

I joined Adriana on an evening tour to a few smaller, more boutiquey restaurants that I suspect are going to give Costa Rican cuisine a much higher profile in the coming years. She's a great host, fun, informative, but poised - she knows when to give detail and when to let you have a "foodie moment".

She's also on first name terms with anyone who is anyone on the San Jose food scene, which means doors open, introductions are made and you can find yourself discussing the latest food trends with a chef who would have Michelin stars if they worked in Europe.

If you find yourself with some spare time here then this is *the* tour to do in the capital.
