This tour was the perfect way for our family to see a few highlights of Old Town San Juan in a limited time before catching a flight out. Our local guide, Stephen, was very knowledgeable and friendly. He communicated both logistics and information about the history and culture of the city clearly. What a beautiful city with such rich and diverse history and culture. Our kids, ages 5 and 9, enjoyed the walking tour as well.

Guide was very knowledgeable! Tour was paced well. I now feel like I have an introduction to the island’s history-especially Old San Juan.

I absolutely enjoyed my tour of old San Juan very informative and my tour guide put a comedic twist to it.
