Michelle_D, May 2023
Antonio was great, very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. We enjoyed the walk through old San Juan learning the history. I do have one suggestion maybe add a stop where you can experience sampling of the traditional food and drink. Nothing big just a sample. But it was a nice tour.
The best time of the day to appreciate the city!
Shannon_L, May 2023
Great experience. Highly recommend the sunset tour if you would prefer a cooler experience out of the bright sun like we wanted. Antonio was so pleasant and knowledgeable and felt like a new friend by the end of the tour. Amazing sights and photos to be taken all while learning the long and fascinating history of Old San Juan. You will not regret taking this sunset walking tour. I promise!

Great time! We chose the later tour which was perfect for temps while walking. This tour has a lot of walking balanced with plenty of stops and photo opps. Tons of great info about the island and our guide was passionate, knowledgeable, and fun! Would highly recommend- we brought our 11 year old and she enjoyed it just as much!
Knowledgeable guide
Esther_S, Apr 2023
The tour was fun and the guide was knowledgeable. My only issue was with the snake man but that was not the tour's fault lol. A lot of tourist spots are visited with time to take photos.
Must-do for first time in Old San Juan!!
Krista_L, Apr 2023
Antonio was an amazing tour guide. He went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience! We ended up missing our original tour due to a late check-in at our hotel. Not only did he reach out to check on us, but he also stayed in contact and assisted us in being able to attend the tour on a different night.

Tour guide was horrible. He refused to answer our calls or give us the location of the meeting point. We booked for no reason. Do not waste your money. Honestly felt like a scam. Do Not Book with them.
