This was a great tour. It was historical and all the food was a real treat. We left full!
The only problem we had was viator didn and #39;t send our info to the tour operators. Fortunately, I called before to confirm and got it fixed.
Simply Amazing tour. Our guide's name was Carmen who gave a very thorough, fun and informational tour as we ate our way through the streets of Old San Juan. The restaurants we sampled were Princesa along the La Rambla of Old San Juan for appetizers, Senor Paleta for amazing ice pops, Mofongo at a restaurant on Caleta de San Juan, tapas at Cafe el Punto and cheese flan at Vaca Brava. I am a big foodie and an architect, so a tour of my two favorite things combined was amazing. Would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to Old San Juan.
Carmen was wonderful. The tour had a perfect pace and she was incredibly courteous and knowledgeable. I signed up on a whim and I and #39;m very glad I did. I would recommend this to everyone whether you are looking to get oriented for a long visit or hoping to pack a lot in on a short one.
a great way to learn about the city. Our guide was the best!
Great tour, our guide was knowledgeable and had a sense of humor. Lovely city with great food
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!
