great oub crawl with free drinks and shots
Michelle_A, Jan 2020
We had one night in San Jose and this pub crawl came up. Having done pub crawls in cities all over the world we thought we'd give it a go. we had a group of about 30ppl with 3 guides- such an amazing time. visited many bars and clubs and each came with freebies. guides were friendly, helpful and welcoming. drinks were really good too. Would def recommend.
Response from Host, Jan 2020

This tour was fun!! I enjoyed tasting the drinks and beer of this culture. It was very interesting tasting shots that had hot sauce in it lol and also happy we found clubs that played some american music :)
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Awesome! Thanks for your review and also for exploring the city with the locals :)
Late start
Kyna_A, Dec 2019
Everything was fine, I just wish we didn’t have such a late start. It wasn’t the hosts fault, we were waiting in late bookers.
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Thank you for your comment! We are very sorry it was not a 5-star review, because of late bookers. Costarican addresses might be a bit complicated, and sometimes the delay is not even the customer's fault, that's why we always try to wait for everybody, and that's also why we offer free drinks at our meeting point so the waiting is worth the while :) We are very happy the rest of your experience was worth sharing.
I have to tell you, I was not prepared...
Ekene O, Aug 2018
I have to tell you, I was not prepared for what a bustling nightlife San Jose has. I was visiting alone and this pub crawl was the best investment of my whole trip. Mendes the tour guide was very warm and friendly. There was a group of 6 along for the night and we all bonded and had an absolutely amazing time going from bar to club. The locations were amazing the music was varied, and skipping the rather long lines to get in each time was a godsend. Please do yourself a favor and buy this tour, it is more than worth it!
The tour was well paced! Our guides...
Rahul_D, Apr 2018
The tour was well paced! Our guides were very friendly and walked us through the history of Costa Rica specifically San Jose! The bars that we saw - all had a different vibe and the experience was truly fun! Highly recommend this pub crawl!

Axiel_A, Oct 2016
If you are having second thoughts, don't! This is amazing and I really had a great time. Tour guide Eric and company were really great! Enjoy!
What a great time! Melissa our guide...
Ashley R, Sept 2016
What a great time! Melissa our guide was so sweet and helpful the entire night. We went to some really nice bars and met some amazing locals. This is definitely a must do if you want to see how the locals party. Our security guard Elias was also very helpful and on his job the entire night, making sure we were all together and safe at all times. I would definitely recommend and even do it again when i return! Big thank you to Melissa. I messaged her two days later asking for more cool local bars and she responded and suggested another neat place that we went to and had a blast! Thank you!! Puda vida!!
