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.

Wonderful experience to have a knowledgeable guide lead us on a relaxing sunset tour of Viejo San Juan. Provided clear and easy links prior to the tour to lead us right to the parking garage and to the meet up spot. Our guide Jorge was enthusiastic and polite and made sure everyone was comfortable and had a great time. We were able to get some outstanding pictures and restaurant recommendations. I highly recommend this tour it was not our first time in the city and we learned so much more this trip and enjoyed what we were seeing far more with Jorge leading the way.

Jorge was our guide. He responded QUICKLY via text and was SO KIND. He’s funny and super knowledgeable about the area. He includes the Taino, Arawak, African, Spanish within the Puerto Rican history. We covered a lot of ground and it was a BEAUTIFUL tour. I would recommend it AND it shows you great areas, restaurants/bars, parks, museums to visit on your own. Jorge was amazing he knew times of operation and costs for each. He helped everyone take pics and decide where to go after the tour ended. 10/10! Bring water, comfortable shoes, glasses and a hat! A/C has spoiled me so I sweated a lot but got GORGEOUS photos and tons of historical facts. Jorge loves his job, I’m so happy I booked!

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!
