Get a 360 degree view of San Jose with the VIP City Bus Tour. This European style double decker bus allows you to see more of the city and historical buildings than a typical walking tour.

Your bilingual guide will explain the historic and cultural aspects of the sites and lead you inside a few of the most noteworthy attractions. You'll get to sip on a welcome drink as you get ready for an educational look at the city.

You'll learn about Costa Rican history at stops like the National Monument – these stops take you all the way from ancient times to the 19th century battle for independence. There are several guided walking tours and a look around the grand lobby of the National Theater. In total, you'll stop at 25 monuments.

On the bus, you'll have access to the Wi-Fi. A folk band will serenade you as you cruise along the capital's busy streets. Come ready to do a little shopping — this tour comes with a stop to explore the Central Market, where you'll have the chance to browse local art and handicrafts.

At the conclusion of the tour, you'll stop for dinner. You'll eat at a popular restaurant where you'll try a typical Costa Rican meal. Afterward, you'll hop back on the bus one more time for the ride back to your hotel.
