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!

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!

This was terrible- Viator did not inform the tour company, about our food allergies, like they had promised to. And we accidentally ended up eating what we shouldn't be. Also, we did not get any confirmation from the merchant until last day. The food portions were very small, and we literally had to eat after this tour. In fact, they don't even allow you to order extra food even if you are willing to pay for it.

I won't do it ever again! You want a taste of the local food- just ask the locals. After all, who doesn't know of a good place to eat!

There were only two of us on the tour. Our guide was a very knowledgeable young lady who I gave a wonderful history of the city and the foods on the tour were a good mix of local cuisine.
