This was a great tour. You got to try foods in places you wouldn’t know about if you were on your own. Angel was out tour guide, he was very knowledgeable about the history and places we visited. Highly recommend this tour.
Food tour really captured the essence of Puerto Rico

We took the food tour with Nadia. She was an amazing tour guide - personable, knowledgeable, and passionate about Puerto Rico. We got a taste of history, Puerto Rican culture and got to sample staples of Puerto Rican cuisine at 5 different places. The food was really great. I lived in Puerto Rico about 40 years ago - and brought my husband back to experience some of my fond memories. I learned more about the history of Puerto Rico on the tour - but Nadia was able to capture the essence of my fond memories through her passion and the foods on the tour. I sincerely hope it won't be another 40 years before I return.
Stephanie's tours was really great. Her knowledge of the restaurants and shops in Old San Juan made our day. We tasted great foods and things we had never tried before. After the tour we had a better feel for the area, the places we wanted to see and spend more time exploring. Thank you Stephanie
This was one of the top three highlights of our 6 day stay in Puerto Rico. After the extremely disappointing and overpriced bioluminescent fish tour, this was spectacular. Our guide, Vasti, was nice and gave us a great history lesson. The 5 food stops were fantastic, the highlight making our own mofongo/ There was variety and plenty of food. We did the afternoon tour and didn't need to eat dinner. I'd give it 10 out of 5 stars if I could. JUST OUTSTANDING!!!
Our tour guide Raul was very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun. All the places we tried were amazing. There was a wide variety of food, and we got to see a lot of the city. The group was a lot of fun, and we all went out for more drinks after.
Stephanie is truly a gem. She knows the ins and outs of Old San Juan and all the great places to get your grub on. She knows the history and the food and she just has such a warm spirit. Her mission in life is to bring joy to others!!!!Love her
We had an excellent time with our tour guides and the other couple! We had some DELICIOUS food and even got to make our own mojitos! We got some great history while walking from place to place as well!
