Great food, Great history, Great tour guide....Highly recommend!!!!
The tour was terrific!!! Luli, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the food and history. She made everyone in the group - and there was a wide range of ages - feel very comfortable. We enjoyed appetizers, entrees, dessert and the best pina colada I ever tasted.
The tour was fun and we tried a variety of different foods. You get a lot of food, so make sure to go on an empty stomach!
I highly recommend that anyone who visits San Juan should take advantage of the Old San Juan Food Tour. I found out a lot about that history of Old San Juan and I enjoyed some of the great food from the area.
Fabulous tour, very informative guide. Excellent information and food tastings - 5 different foods in 5 different restaurants. Would highly recommend. Lots of useful information given too
AMAZING!! The tour guide was great, the food was great, and the views of the city were so cool. Loved walking around and seeing all the sites as we traveled from restaurant to restaurant. Good local culinary info provided at each location! LOVED IT!
The food tour was wonderful. Our tour guide was so exciting and cheerful. Loved the ice cream after the little hill and making our own mofongo. Actually, we liked every stop. Each one was different from the last.
We took this tour the day we arrived. It's a perfect way to get acquainted with Old Town.
Bubbly tour guide Carmen led us through Old San Juan from appetizers, main dish, pina colada, to dessert. The food vegetarian for us tasted fabulous, and it was the best pina colada I've ever had. This tour was highly recommended to us by friends who had a different guide in February, and I recommend it just as highly to everyone else in a position to go on it.
