This was a great tour. The guide teaches you a lot about the history of Old San Juan and shows you some of the sites of the city. And then on top of that, you get to sample some of the local food. We took the morning tour that started at 10:00 am and I am glad we did. As the morning wore on the streets were more and more crowded and it became more difficult getting around plus the temperature got hotter. But all in all the tour was well worth the fee.

Entire party of 6 really enjoyed this. Even the older more gruff people in our complement were surprised. Would have enjoyed this with our kids and our grandparents. Lots of walking.

Excellent tour! Although it started late due to one of the guides having an emergency we were informed of the issue, they sent a new guide who was fantastic and very knowledgeable and compensated us for the delay. Very professional company. We thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour and history of Old San Juan while tasting 5 different cuisines and enjoying one complementary drink. I would highly recommend this tour.
