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!

Gabby was our guide and the best guide ever. She was informative, funny and answered all of our questions. She made the trip to inviting and I think everyone in our group enjoyed her as the guide. This was a great tour and worth the money. We ate food I would not have eaten at home and loved it all. A tour worth taking.
