Our guide, David, is remarkably knowledgeable about Puerto Rican history, is eager to share his knowledge, and very friendly. He showed us hidden away places we would not have found on our own, and gave us great tips about other things to do and see. One of the best and most interesting tours we've been on.

David really knows his business. We arrived about 15 minutes late since our taxi driver was lost, and still he was waiting for our group with a smile, bottled water and a gift for us. He gave us lots of information on the city and its history, and gave us lots of good suggestions on things to do and places to eat. He even told us to let him know when we wanted a picture on a place and he would take it. The description says it takes about 2hrs but our tour lasted longer that that, Id say over 3hrs, and he managed to keep us interested and informed during all that time. If you have a few hours to spend in old San Juan and want to know in deep about their history, DO book this tour.

Excellent tour and tour guide! Great value! The guide was very responsive with instructions, confirming the tour and meeting place, and answering questions the day before my tour. Extremely professional and even gave us little gifts. It wasn't a private tour but sure felt like one! I've been to San Juan several times, and never realized how much I didn't know. The tour gave me real insights and made the San Juan experience much more meaningful.

Was on Oasis of the Seas coming into PR. Cruise port is less than 10 minute walk from Starbucks where we met David outside. We didn't realize PR was an hour ahead of time on the cruise so we were actually late for our 9 a.m. tour. We thought we were arriving at 8:45 a.m. according to our watches set to the cruise, but it was 9:45 a.m. PR time. David was great to have waited on us. He led us on a very customized and personalized tour for well over 90 minutes. It was just our family of five, my wife and I and our three teens. David did a great job giving us time to take pictures and look around, and he was talking non-stop about the history of the island and city. We were amazed at his knowledge. He is so friendly and seemed to know most of the locals where we stopped. This is one of the best tours we've ever had, so I will highly recommend it. We saw groups of 20--40 people with guides, and David with our group of five was zigging and zagging around those groups. I bet we saw 50 more things than they did in the same amount of time.

David was knowledgeable, warm, and pleasant. The tour was very well designed. You will get so much more out of a tour with him than walking around on your own. I HIGHLY recommend this tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

This tour was FABULOUS ! My husband and I, son and daughter in law, and two grandchildren were the only ones on the tour. Ages were 20 to 79. My family and I had all toured Old San Juan on previous cruises. Our other tours were nothing like this one. David was so knowledgeable! He took us to all different types of places......historical and entertaining. And he did it in a logical fashion so that we could return to our favorite places for lunch and shopping.
The next time I am in San Juan, I definitely want to tour with David again!
