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!!!

My favorite of the trip. This tour takes you through the HEART of Old San Juan to those hidden gems that you would never think of visiting on your own. I loved our tour guide, Horacio!

Pam and her company were the best! Just before the time we were supposed to meet, they sent us a text message reconfirming meeting location and time. When we arrived at the location, Pam was already there waiting for us.
She was sweet, knowledgeable, had a great sense of humor, and knew how to answer all of our questions about the tour, the city, historical facts and even local gossip!
The 5 food stops we had were perfect. This was well thought out and paced perfectly. I loved the fact this tour is basically a 2-4-1 we got the history walking tour with food stops in between. Next time we are over in San Juan, we are definitely doing this again! 5 stars all across!
