Carlos is a great guide and made our tour informative and entertaining. He met us on time at the cruise port with a smile and lots of enthusiasm. His fancy limo van was very comfortable and his complimentary local beers were very cold. We would not hesitate booking with him again.

Carlos treated us to an amazing tour of San Juan! He worked with our group on what we were interested in seeing. He is very knowledgable and explained everything that we were seeing. His vehicle is super comfortable and is supplied with drinks and snacks! His attention to us, and those of us with minor mobility issues was great. We never felt rushed. He also takes lots of pictures of the group and of the places you visit. They are in your email when you get home! Best tour of the week. Highly recommend!!

Took a tour of San Juan with Carlos and we had the best time. Very energetic and knowledgeable. My daughter and our friends all found the tour with Carlos to be truly enjoyable. It rained the day we took the tour and Carlos came fully prepared with rain ponchos and umbrellas. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family.

Excellent tour. I HIGHLY recommend Carlos!
Without question we were driven in the finest vehicle in San Juan. (seriously!) We have been on 13 cruises now and have always taken advantage of the ship's tour offerings as well as regularly hiring taxi's to provide these. If you have traveled this way you KNOW that these are generally done with large cumbersome buses (usually with inadequate air conditioning) and the obvious time constraints on your tour from having to load/unload large groups of people- and that the waits with older crowds for this can be quite long. Short of buses, small underpowered mini-vans are the norm on every island we've been to (25). After having been on a number of these I told my wife I was never again spending my vacation on a bus with poor views and a limited ability to get into the places their sheer size makes impossible. On Carlos tour we traveled in a full size AMERICAN custom Ford van, leather seats, a raised roof, GOOD A/C, drinks, snacks etc. Carlos gave a great tour and never let up on his running commentary except to answer questions. He even played a short video he had created regarding San Juan to show us additional things that time kept us from seeing.
If you've done your research in advance, Carlos will tailor his tour to meet your demands. Absolutely the best tour at the best price we've ever taken. I wouldn't even consider any other option after this and sadly know from experience, it's unlikely we'll ever top this tour for comfort, knowledge and the breadth of what we were shown in those hours.
My kudos to Carlos for his commendable efforts!

Our tour was far more than we expected. Carlos was right there to greet us and showed us a wonderful time. He is very knowledgeable about his country and an extremely pleasant person. We heartily recommend your services.

We had been to San Juan on 2 previous cruises and were unsure what was left to do. I found Carlos through Viator and knew right away he would show us new places we hadn't seen. Carlos called as soon as our ship arrived and met us at the gate. He took us to San Cristobal fort where we took some beautiful pictures. We had an amazing lunch at Boronia En La Placita De Santurce where I ate Mofongo and had 2 great Mojitos made with Don Q rum. We also got the chance to visit the Butterfly People art gallery where I purchased 2 beautiful butterflies. I cannot say enough good things about Carlos and how comfortable he made us feel. If I ever go back to Puerto Rico I will definitely be calling him for another tour.
