Full description

Meet your guide at Plaza Colón in San Juan and set off into the sunset on this 2-hour walking tour. The plazas are the perfect location to learn about the colonial history of Puerto Rico from your guide. From Plaza Colón, you will walk and see the Plaza de la Barandilla and Plaza de Armas. In Old San Juan, visit one of its most spectacular historic buildings: Antiguo Palacio de la Intendencia, originally built to house the treasury of the island and now the Department of State of Puerto Rico.

Witness the 18th-century chapel at Capilla del Santo Cristo de la Salud and learn all about its urban legend. Visit also La Fortaleza-Palacio de Santa Catalina, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tour also takes you past San Juan Cathedral, the Ballaja Barracks, Catedral Basilica Menor, Cuartel de Ballaja, and San Juan's most valuable historic site, Castillo San Felipe del Morro, before ending at Plaza de San José.

Jorge was such a great tour guide. I really appreciated the fact that he was from San Juan, born & raised, & knew so much about the history. He was so nice & so patient with all of us. Very informative! If I had the chance to do it again & have Jorge as my guide, I woulf definitely do it all over again!

My husband and I took the San Juan old town sunset walking tour our first evening in Puerto Rico. It was a great way to see and learn about San Juan. The guide was knowledgable and shared many interesting facts and stories. Sunset is such a beautiful time to see and photograph the city. We enjoyed the tour and are so glad we did it!

The walking tour of Old San Juan was a great introduction to the city! Jorge’s knowledge and love for the city is fantastic and his energy and enthusiasm for its history and culture make him a great ambassador for Puerto Rico and Old San Juan. So glad we made this part of our visit!
