This was the perfect way to start the trip. We returned to many of the restaurants several times and were pleased each visit. Our host was lovely and we kept running into her on our day trips through Old San Juan. I would highly recommend this to anyone as a good thing to do the first day or two in town.

Our tour guide did an amazing job introducing Old town San Juan. Of course the food was delicious as well! I would highly recommend doing this tour at the start of your trip.

Great activity if you are in San Juan for a few hours or several days. We stayed on the island but some of our fellow food tourists were on a Carnival Cruise docked for the day. The 3-4 hour tasting and tour was a good way to see the city and go to local restaurants without needing to consult Yelp along each step of the way. Unfortunately, we waited to our last day of the vacation to do this. A better plan would have been to go earlier in the trip, so we could go back to a favorite restaurant or two on another day.

The food tour was really informative. Small bites, but from walking and talking you get full. The coffee shop that offered coffee or juice along with a sandwich is cool, but if you're not a coffee drinker and choose juice beware that the passion fruit juice is watered down with no taste. No complaints and the tour guide was great, sorry I forgot his name.

A great place to start in Old San Juan! The restaurants on this tour were places that I never would have found by myself. Each one had a distinctive Puerto Rican dish that was so delicious! For the rest of our vacation, we found ourselves wishing we were eating back at these restaurants. Our tour guide Rocio was such a great story teller that my boys didn't mind getting a history lesson as they ate their way through San Juan.
