Our guide David expertly steered us through all the high points and hidden gems of Old San Juan, mixing his intimate knowledge with dry humor. He kept the tour moving, found a dry spot during a sudden shower, and was constantly looking out for our safety. Gracias David!

Old San Juan Harbor Sailing Tour- "Amazing Grace" was an amazing sailing tour. The guides were kind, informative with safety measures, knowledgeable about the island of Puerto Rico. It was a nice smooth cruise. Saw some major landmarks around the island from a water view. Thanks Amazing Grace Team!

We have never been on a Segway before. After 20 min of training, off we went. Just like pros. Very easy to get the feel. This is a great way to see Old San Juan. Would never have seen the places we went to and Jose did a great job on all the history. Highly recommended.

Other San Juan Neighborhoods

Old San Juan is perhaps the best-known of Puerto Rico's San Juan neighborhoods, but it's far from the only one. Venture slightly farther afield to upscale Miramar, home to two marinas; make your way to Condado, known for beachside condos; or stop in at Ocean Park, where you'll find some overlooked but beautiful beaches.
