A good tour to do when you are in San Jose. It includes both pre columbian museum and national theatre. A decent lunch is provided in a clean restaurant. The staffs are friendly and professional. I'd recommend this tour when you have day available in San Jose. You get a taste of the city. நீங்கள் சான் ஜோஸில் இருக்கும்போது செய்ய வேண்டிய ஒரு நல்ல சுற்றுலா. இது கொலம்பியனுக்கு முந்தைய பொன் அருங்காட்சியகம் மற்றும் தேசிய அரங்கு இரண்டையும் உள்ளடக்கியது. நல்ல ஒரு மதிய உணவு ஒரு சுத்தமான உணவகத்தில் வழங்கப்படுகிறது. நடபான ஊழியர்கள். சான் ஜோஸில் உங்களுக்கு ஒரு நாள் கிடைக்கும் ஆனால் இந்தச் சுற்றுப்பயணம் நகரம் பற்றிய மேலோட்டமான ஒரு பார்வையை வழங்கும்
