Looie was an excellent guide and a gracious hostess. The food was fantastic and the history of Old San Juan was educational, but not boring.
I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide, Luli, was friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. In addition to great food stops, you also get some of the history of Old San Juan. Great variety of food on this tour, from appetizers to mains, and then a little dessert and coffee. You finish up full but not overly so. Go for it!
