This tour was so fun! Rose was so down to earth and is so knowledgeable about the history of san jose. The food choices were amazing & the Mezcal was a good way to end the tour. Mexican food and tequila is always a good combination. I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore San Jose. Thank you Rose and Rosalie :)
