San Juan, Puerto Rico
We ended a 7 day cruise in San Juan where we stayed for 3 days. We arranged for this tour for the evening of the day we arrived. We loved it! It was our favorite part of the entire trip, cruise included. I highly recommend it! Great food accompanied by an insiders view on San Juan's history.
